This week, we have erected a Jaso J168 Luffing Jib tower crane for the new Dacre Building at Emanuel School. The 18 metre high crane is able to lift 2600kg at 45 metres.
The close proximity of the existing building and the neighbouring London to Brighton railway line made the erection complex and challenging.
The Dacre project involves the demolition of the existing standalone building and the construction of a new three storey classroom block, this will provide linked access to existing buildings at the school.
The new buildings will house additional classrooms including music and art classrooms and will also incorporate an art exhibition space and film studio. The works involve the construction of a concrete framed structure on piled foundations.
