Lux MTL 220 installation at BECT's Landore Court site, Cardiff

Bennetts erected this crane for a 16-storey, multi-use development in Cardiff. With a small site in a city centre it was vital to plan carefully with the right crane for the space.


Raimondi MRT 189 installation at Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire 2021

This brand new Raimondi MRT 189 went up in the summer of 2021 in the grounds of the spectacular Eynsham Hall in Oxfordshire. It's for the construction of a spa building deep in a forest of American redwoods so a height of 44m is needed to oversail the treetops.


Bennetts Cranes – perhaps the tallest freestanding luffer in the UK at 105 metres?

This freestanding luffing jib tower crane was initially installed at 55 metres in May 2020 at Berkeley Group's St George development at Chelsea Creek, London and in April 2021 we extended it to its final height of 105 metres.

Bennetts Cranes at Royal Warwick Square

Bennetts Cranes supplies four brand new Raimondi cranes to the St Edward/Berkeley Group Royal Warwick Square site in Kensington, London. Sales Director, Clare Rodgers, talks about the essential planning of the project.


Crane dismantle at St Martin's Place, Birmingham

We dismantled this Saez SL 450 tower crane at Colmore Tang's St Martin's Place site in Birmingham using a 750 tonne mobile crane. It was one of two of Saez's new model to be installed in the UK; both used for this site.


Bennetts Cranes – climbing a tower crane

The climb method is one way to increase the height of a tower crane. It involves using a frame to push up existing sections and insert new sections. Watch how our operators extend the height of a Raimondi LRH 174 at a site in Croydon.

A massive thank you to you and the team at Bennetts for such a smooth install of the tower crane on Saturday. Everything that was planned out went without a problem. Great planning from Doug with regard to the Appointed Person side of things; the erection team as led by your supervisor Neil Archibald, working together with Liam, Brett, Reggie and Joe, showed professionalism and safety in mind at all time.

Great work with great people – thank you.
Ken AlboroughSenior Site Manager, Volker Fitzpatrick
Well done – a very smooth and quick dismantle of both the Raimondi MRT84 and Comedil CTT121 tower cranes at the Victory Pier site in Gillingham. Thank you.
Billy SymesSenior Site Manager, Berkeley Group Plc
It has been a pleasure to work with Bennetts and a welcoming change to deal with a crane supplier that delivered what was agreed and when. The operators where very good and the crane always worked, plus all services, equipment checks and records along with reviews were done on the date required. Thanks again and if my next scheme has a need for a tower crane I will be in touch.
Terry BensonProject Manager, Shaylor Group
I'd just like to pass on our thanks to the de-rigging team for a job well done. Our saddleback came down safely and quickly and I would like to say the lads are a credit to Bennetts and I will be more than happy to recommend you on any future projects.
