Watpac Construction SA State Manager, Tim Tape, said not only does the crane signal a ramp up in construction works on site, but it is the fifth crane to be installed at a Watpac site in South Australia in the last five years.
“This is not only a milestone for the construction of the project but also for Watpac in South Australia,” Tim said.
With construction underway since May, Watpac Construction SA Project Manager, Glenn Whyte, said the crane’s 56 metre jib and 24 tonne lifting capacity will enable the project to continue progressing to schedule.
“Since commencing on site, the team has focused on completing the in-ground works, concrete pads and slabs, so we’re looking forward to putting the crane into operation for the next stage of construction,” Glenn said.
“The crane will be on site for approximately 12 months and will initially be used to install the pre-cast walls, which is due to commence in coming weeks.”
