60m Saez SL 450 luffing jib tower cranes for luxury apartments

Bennetts Cranes provided heavy lifting for a flagship luxury apartment development in the centre of Birmingham, linked to the Park Regis Hotel, 2019 to 2020. The construction company, Colmore Tang, built the apartments using pre-cast panels that were fully glazed. This is an efficient building method, but it does involve lifting heavy panels – much heavier than standard building materials – to the height of the building. We supplied two specific cranes for the job, both SL 450s, a model built by Spanish manufacturer Saez. The cranes could lift up 24 tonnes and were freestanding. This enabled an efficient and smooth build process.
