A very quiet lift and shift

We are considerate of all site users when undertaking any projects. It is important that sites can be safely used by the public as much as possible when we are working. 


A recent job lifting, shifting and installing a new air conditioning system in a hospital had us prioritising patient comfort at every turn. 


Royal Lemington Spa Hospital

Royal Lemington Spa Hospital provides specialist care for young adults with neurological conditions caused by acquired brain injuries. Based in the Midlands, they offer patient-focused rehabilitation to patients across the county.


The managers of the hospital contacted us to lift, shift and install the new air conditioning units in one of the buildings on their site. 

The managers of the hospital were very keen that noise be kept to an absolute minimum, as the patients at the hospital were undergoing treatment that required plenty of rest. The hospital site would remain live for the whole project, and so they also did not want to use a crane to hoist the air conditioning equipment over any of the buildings where the patients would be.


We conducted site surveys and meetings and produced a plan to lift and shift the equipment from transport to the final location using a varied selection of equipment including porta gantries, skates, and jacks. The plan detailed the lengths we would go to to ensure that noise was kept to an absolute minimum throughout the entire process.


A successful, and quiet lift and shift. The air conditioning units were moved from transport to the final location successfully. The hospital was able to keep all its therapies operational and patients were able to convalesce in peace.
