Britlift: Lifting modular homes


Britlift discuss being involved in 2018 in supplying lifting equipment to 12 offsite projects and securing two long term clients

2018 proved a successful year for Britlift in the Offsite Construction sector as a number of new clients came on board involved in the manufacture of modular buildings and bathroom pods for both residential and commercial use. This has resulted in 11 Britlift beams being used, starting in February 2019, to lift modules onto the worlds tallest modular building in London which will be a huge 44 stories and 38 stories of modules across the two towers! Seen in image 1.

During the course of 2018 Britlift were involved in supplying lifting equipment to 12 offsite projects and secured two long term clients using Britlift as their ‘go-to’ lifting equipment specialist. Project requirements included a 6 point 34 tonne complete lifting system (including all rigging) for site use, a 25 tonne adjustable lifting frame for use with an RTG, an 8 point 12 tonne complete lifting system (including rigging), a 25 tonne adjustable lifting frame (including rigging) for use on site, 11 tonne and 12 tonne telescopic spreader beams with rigging and multiple bathroom pod lifting frames and rigging systems.

Britlift have carved a path into the offsite construction sector and has very quickly positioned itself as the No.1 specialist lifting equipment manufacturer to the offsite construction market. Through the experience of past projects there isn’t much that Britlift hasn’t seen, considered, designed, manufactured or supplied, in regards to lifting both modular buildings and bathroom pods, and it is this experience and expertise that will see further projects in 2019 supplied with Britlift lifting equipment.
