A Tower Crane Section Going Up

Mobilization - Sections

Sections of the crane are moving on site...


Mobilization of the tower crane is taking place this morning. With tight urban quarters it can be tricky at times, but it still stands as a testament to Century Concrete, Clancy & Theys, the City, the neighboring businesses, and the entire project team for such a feat.

Check back throughout the day for more images of the crane going up.
