Big Steel Beam Installation in Bishop’s Stortford

Another big steel install for Hooka to take on this week – for Ken Morrison Builders in Bishop’s Stortford.

At 7.2 metres long and weighing 950Kg, the machine’s ability to safely tow the beam up a 10 degree slope into site and then ‘slew turn’ it around a tight corner over the top of the pre-built DPC walls, directly into the extension area, came to the fore.

Hooka then set the beam up on 4 heavy duty trestles, before it was strapped to the machine’s ‘Up and Under’ lifter for the final vertical lift and horizontal ‘posting forward’ onto the padstones.

Job done safely and smoothly, and customer kindly said he’ll be back for more!
