3D Lift Plan
Planning a successful lift can sometimes be a challenge. The safety of employees and the public, in addition to protection of the load, is paramount. That’s where trained and qualified professionals are needed and these are the kind of professionals The Crane Guys have on their staff.
You also need the right tools to do the job right. One such tool The Crane Guys utilize is a web based lift planning and crane selection application named 3D Lift Plan.
The first step in developing a lift plan involves having one of our dedicated sales team members either walk the jobsite or contact the customer to obtain necessary lift information. Then, one of The Crane Guys 3D Lift Plan Level 2 – Certified Professionals takes the information gathered and inputs the weight and dimensions of the object to be lifted, including any obstructions, as well as job location, into the application.
The result is a detailed plan of the jobsite, depicting buildings, landscape, roads and any other objects critical to the lift. 3D Lift Plan then searches for the appropriate and economical crane in The Crane Guys inventory. When the correct crane is chosen, it is correctly placed on the plan sketch.
The next step is developing a rigging plan, listing all rigging components and placing them on the sketch.
Lastly, lift plan narratives are then written to provide additional context and details, such as wind restrictions or required load chart deductions, and clarity to the lift. We also include ground bearing pressures and any special support requirements such as large wooden mats or steel plates in order to reduce those pressures.
While several steps are involved, The Crane Guys know that is important to provide the customer with a plan that will achieve the desired result: a safe and successful lift!
