JPG were appointed as the lead engineers for the office development by CDP at Queen Street in Leeds. The site posed potential issues with the proximity to surrounding buildings and the restricted access. This meant that JPG had to carry out various assessments and devise strategic project plans to ensure the smooth running of the project. JPG engaged a 500T lifting capacity mobile crane to erect the tower crane to assist with the construction of the building on this restricted access city centre site.
The operation took place over the weekend of the spring bank holiday. Prior to instructing the crane on site, JPG carried out an inspection and assessment of the service tunnel under Queen Street as part of the AIP submission to the highways department at Leeds City Council before permission was granted to allow the mobile crane to access the site.
