CUSTOM ESCALATOR PLACEMENT USING A CRANE!
The team at GUNN Consultants has had the pleasure of acting as Project Manager for the installation of new escalators at Harbour Centre over this last year, but the icing on the cake was a feat of engineering excellence on May 24th, as we oversaw two escalators being craned into the building at 555 West Hastings …through a window!
Here’s a brief look at the process:
The first escalator was connected to the crane and carefully turned toward the window opening.
After considerable deliberation, measurement, and guidance from the crew, the crane and escalator entered the building.
Due to size constraints, the escalator had to be installed in separate pieces. This is the lower half being put into place.
Now that’s some serious engineering!
