Cala Homes – Cheltenham

Cala Homes Midlands sought a trusted partner to manage crane operations for their prestigious new build project in Cheltenham. This ambitious project turned a rundown former police station – close to Cheltenham town centre – into a prime development of 67 high-quality new family homes, finished to exacting specifications.

Entrusted with this responsibility, Fortis Heavy Lift Group stepped in at the planning phase to comprehensively assess site requirements and deliver a suite of services including Tower Crane Hire, Crane Management, Contract Lift, and Plant Movement.

From inception to completion, Fortis managed the entire process with precision and expertise. Our team meticulously sourced the ideal Tower Crane, selecting the JASO J160 Saddle Jib model to meet project specifications.

We seamlessly oversaw the erection and dismantling procedures, ensuring smooth operations at every stage. Key to our success was our commitment to safety and compliance. Fortis provided a comprehensive suite of services, including Appointed Person services, Tower Crane Operators, Crane Supervisors, and Slinger Signallers.

We implemented rigorous rescue and recovery procedures, conducting regular refresher training sessions to maintain the highest safety standards throughout the project’s duration.

Working alongside Cala’s management team was a collaborative and rewarding experience. Their professionalism and dedication to excellence mirrored our own values, fostering a productive partnership that contributed to the project’s success. We look forward to working with them again in the future. To find out how we can help with your next project, get in touch today.
