The depth and quality of Gravity’s lift planning ensures our industry differentiation as well as providing clients and our own personnel with the confidence that every lift we carry out is completed as quickly, safely, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Prior to lift, a thorough site inspection is completed which details aspects such as:
Utilising the data collected our operations proceed, with engineering support detailing all relevant information for the lift including: crane type & configuration, rigging details, capacity, utilisation checks, and drawings of the set up on site. These details are provided in a lift plan document to the crane operator.
Only when every variable and factor involved in the lift has been assessed, appropriately calculated and allowed for and thoroughly documented, does the lift proceed.
Comprehensive instructions are provided prior to each lift to ensure every participant acknowledges and understands their role, all applicable safety measures and any emergency or contingency plans. All rigging, accessories and mechanical parts are checked, and the load itself is checked.
The lift is carried out as safely and efficiently as possible, and all personnel remain in contact at all times to ensure the process is completed smoothly.
Following completion of the lift, feedback is generated to highlight issues or problems encountered, and the potential for improvement on the next lift in the same location or shifting similar loads to be noted. The lift plan is marked up with improvements ready to be incorporated into the next lift.
The meticulous planning and documentation of the lift, and the experience of the Gravity crews, ensure that we are able to repeatedly achieve the same results at any time.
The documentation of the plan and the lift itself allow for a lift library to be developed for each client which minimises any repetitive work, further site inspection and calculation at subsequent lifts.
This capacity to refine our methods and to replicate results every time gives clients the peace of mind that the best team is on the job, and that the lift is being completed with maximum safety, efficiency and value for money.
