Prefab Shelter Lifted Eight Floors to Secure Stairway

A construction worker in a blue jacket observes a large prefab shelter being transported on a flatbed trailer near a building under construction, with a yellow crane and urban backdrop.

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 its final resting place eight floors up on top of a downtown parking deck.

All and all, the project went 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. Within about 30 minutes, our crew had completed the process of  securing the lifting straps to the factory installed lifting rings. From there the shelter began its journey up to its new home.

The entire process took less than 3 hours, which is 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 the top of the concrete curb, our crew installed anchors to complete the installation.
