Bennetts managing director Edward Seager said: “We have worked closely with Henry Construction for a number of years, having supplied numerous cranes to them on a variety of different jobsites. We currently have 22 cranes erected in and around London on their sites with new sites due to start later in the year.”

Located in the heart of Wembley, London, the project is a mixed use development by that includes 239 apartments, retail space with commercial use, and a community centre with car and cycle parking. It includes a 21 and a 26 story block which will be the tallest towers in Wembley. The LR213 will remain onsite for two years lifting falsework/formwork, concrete skips, rubbish skips, and boat skips. During the later parts of the construction, the crane will be put to work lifting bricks, blocks, plasterboard and other site materials.

“With a free standing 83 metres and four different types of tower sections within the tower build, we were pleased to complete the full crane erection in two days. This indicates a smooth and timely installation, a credit to Raimondi’s quality manufacturing. In addition, Raimondi’s headquarters also flew in a technician who remained onsite with the Bennetts team for the duration of the installation process.”
