Conquering St Giles

Kingerlee have recently dismantled and removed one of the Jost Luffing Jib tower cranes from the Kendrew Quadrangle project at St Johns College, Oxford.

The crane removal procedure required careful and close planning and liaison with the local authorities to undertake the works over a two day weekend road closure in the busy street of St Giles in historic Oxford.

With the aid of a 250t mobile crane the Jost 158.6 tower crane was carefully dismantled adjacent to  a four way road traffic management scheme controlling the busy Woodstock , Banbury and St Giles intersection.

The final and smaller of the two tower cranes is due to be dismantled shortly and ahead of the completion phases of the project and client occupation for the 2010/2011 academic year.
