Well this was one for the books. The challenge wasn’t supplying a 12′ wide x 22′ long shelter…we build those all the time. The challenge was lifting it to it’s final resting place that was eight floors up on top of a downtown parking deck. All and all the project went pretty smoothly. The crane arrived early in the morning with all the necessary equipment. The prefab shelter was waiting on the back of a 40′ flat bed truck. About 30 minutes later our crew had completed the process of securing the lifting straps to the factory installed lifting rings. From there the shelter began it’s journey up to it’s new home.
The entire process took less than 3 hours. A considerable time savings compared to constructing the shelter on-site. As you can see from the photos this prefab shelter included full perimeter glazing and an integral roof. Once the shelter was positioned on to the top of the concrete curb our crew installed anchors to complete the installation.
