The challenge

Lifting the prefabricated components

It is not always the major complex projects that fill us with the greatest pride and joy. As a company that has been growing with an industry for decades, being given the opportunity to tackle many such projects in a single year is something equally special. A prefabricated house is a time-saving alternative to a brick-built house. This particular project involved the assembly of an especially large home complete with carport.

Our solution

Strict organisation

Right from the outset, it was clear that the Prangl team was not dealing with a case of standard assembly. Furthermore, it was initially necessary to complete faultless preparations for this particularly elaborate house - to ensure the tight schedule could be adhered to. All HGV deliveries had to be ready in the right sequence and the fitters had to have everything prepared. The erection process followed a previously devised timeline that everyone was required to observe. Prangl's experts selected a 35-tonne truck-mounted crane to erect the prefabricated exterior and interior walls, as well as the roof.

35 tonne truck-mounted crane

This crane delivers clear advantages when compared to other equipment: It is manoeuvrable and efficient - because it can readily travel to any construction site complete with its equipment. Once on site, it is ready for use right away. With the 30 metre main boom and a maximum system length of 45 metres, the crane is the optimum solution for erecting such a house. And erection of the new home was spot on: The prefabricated parts with individual weights of up to 3 tonnes were lifted into place unit-by-unit with a maximum boom projection of 16 metres, aligned and bolted into place by the fitters.

Experience counts

Thanks to impeccable cooperation between the crane driver, construction management and fitters, the house quickly rose up from its foundations without delay. And putting the roof on also went like clockwork. The vast experience of Prangl's prefabricated house specialists played a major role in the entire process. The client was impressed by the calmness, oversight and outstanding precision demonstrated by them when erecting the building components, while precise adherence to the time schedule was a matter of pride. And so the new home will soon be ready for its occupants.
