A striking new landmark in the Central Business District of Perth, Western Australia, is nearing completion. Three Potain luffing jib cranes are playing an essential role in building the City Square Tower, or C2 project. The cranes are all scheduled to leave the job site in the final weeks of 2011. Main contractor Brookfield Multiplex is using two MR 295 H20 cranes and an MR 615 crane on the job. The company purchased the two MR 295 cranes specifically for C2 through regional Potain dealer D&G Hoist and Crane Hire. Gino DeCesare, Managing Director of D&G Hoist and Crane Hire, says the precision control of the Potain cranes is especially useful on the project. "This has been a challenging project for our customer Brookfield Multiplex because of some very technical lifts," he said. "The speed, strength and precision of the Potain luffing jib cranes are really appreciated, especially toward the end of the job." One of the toughest lifts on the project was placing the columns for a tiara structure on the roof. These weighed 32.5 t, and Brookfield Multiplex worked with D&G and Manitowoc engineers to ensure the lifts were correctly planned, supervised and controlled.
