How to rebuild a crane 1100 feet in the air

On May 15th Engineering News-Record reported that “roof-mounted cranes took apart and rebuilt part of the crane at the top of One57 in New York City after it was damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The cranes removed two sections of the 54-section mast of the damaged crane to allow a replacement boom to be hoisted into place, and other components were brought up to make the crane operational. “It was an extremely involved process,” said Paul Finamore, senior vice president and project executive of Lend Lease, the project’s construction manager”. 

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. is available to consult on projects and claims regarding the use and operation of cranes, lifts, hoists, and other heavy construction equipment, and we maintain our knowledge of the applicable OSHA, Labor Law, and Industrial Code Rule 23 provisions which regulate their use, operation, and maintenance.  Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding such matters. 

Use of modular construction increases

On May 23rd Allison Arieff wrote in The New York Times that “it’s an exciting time for modular building, especially in New York, and as someone who has been deeply immersed in the world of prefabrication for over a decade, I am glad to see the much-maligned building technology finding its proper niche. It’s the killer app for the modular industry”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. is available to design foundations for modular structures, as well as to inspect, certify, and oversee their installations.  Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding such matters.
