Our second largest hoist to be put to work at Centenary Quay, Southampton

 

It is no secret that we take great pride in our fleet, in fact, very few machines are over the 5-year age profile.

We will be providing our second largest hoist to our newest contract in Southampton. The hoist itself is of twin configuration, has a loading capacity of 2.4 tonnes and is able to travel up to 70m per minute. The model fondly referred to as Colossus’ little brother has a cage size of 5m x 2m and will travel up to 83m/ 27 storeys of the tower transporting both goods & personnel.

Formerly the site where Vosper Thornycroft once traded up until 2003, it will have an incredibly different use to what it once did, being regenerated to support a vibrant, mixed-use building rather than the construction of war ships for the Royal Navy. Upon completion, it will comprise a mixture of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and will form a vital part of the riverside’s rejuvenation scheme.

Stephen Kinsella, executive director for land at Homes England, said: “This new phase of development will create one of the tallest residential buildings in the city and really makes the most of the waterfront presence of Centenary Quay”.
