The crane is the most important and expensive piece
of equipment on a construction site, yet most builders
will operate it with outdated equipment or without utilizing
the crane to its full capacity.
Outdated equipment may include wrong chains or slings,
or old and inefficient single fixed platforms. Safety
concerns and under-utilisation of the crane arise when
the crane is operated when loading platforms are not
located on every floor under construction. Quite often,
the builder believes it’s cheaper to just move
one platform around the site, but this is a false economy
and an inefficient use of the crane and labour. The
crane should be used to place and remove construction
material only, not platforms.
Preston Superdeck installed as a system of multiple
vertically installed units on every floor under construction
will increase the efficiency of the crane and the site
resulting in huge savings in the overall project cost.
Preston Superdeck can save a builder up to and over
US$1,500 per hour. (Saving costs are based on the cost
of the crane per hour plus man power, supervision, overall
logistics improvement, faster movement of material and
labour, better use of the man and material hoist plus
improvements to the construction program and schedule.)
Consider the cost of a Preston Superdeck
– against the overall cost savings.
Preston Superdeck will pay for itself within a very
short period of time
