Imperial Crane Services makes lifts an air handling unit at a Chicago high school project

A winter snow storm did not hamper Imperial Crane Services crews from placing a 35,000-pound air handling unit atop the new South Shore High School project in Chicago, USA.

Working with A&H Mechanical, Imperial crews used its 500-ton capacity Liebherr LTM 1400 with luffer.

Imperial crane operator Fred Pierce completed the eight-point pick in the blind while using a communication system for constant contact, the company said.

Despite the weather and a tight jobsite, Imperial finished the lift on schedule.

The South Shore High School is a project of George Solitt.
