Crane and hoists are essential for the vertical transportation in a high-rise building. While hoists are generally used for manpower transportation, cranes are used to transport major materials such as steel, etc, and sometimes for shuttering.
For 'The Tower' in London, UK, Alimak Hek is providing construction hoists, which is set to be one of the tallest residential buildings in Europe. The hoists, including a 5,500 kg Scando unit, have been supplied to contracting and development company Brookfield Multiplex Europé. Included are two Alimak Scando 650 FC-S 100m/min high-speed construction hoists, designed to speed up construction time and save costs.
