Services

  • Standard Lift Plans (the most common form of lift planning work we perform, these lift plans follow our lift plan outline & templates),
  • Critical Lift Plans (lift plans for lifts where the load weight is above 75% of the rated capacity, lifts involving multiple cranes, lifts involving hazardous materials, lifts where the center of gravity could change, lifts of high value items or items with long replacement lead-times, lifts hoisting personnel, lifts performed without outriggers, lifts involving submerged loads and lifts with technically difficult rigging assemblies), 
  • NAVFAC Lift Plans (specialty lift plans for US Naval Facilities that follow the Navy’s Weight Handling Program Management Manual P-307, these plans are more involved than a typical plan and follow a set procedure and forms provided by the Navy),
  • USACE Lift Plans (specialty lift plans the United States Army Corps of Engineers that follows the Army’s Safety Manual EM 385-1-1, specifically Section 16 for Load Handling Equipment, these plans are also more involved and follow procedures and forms provided by the Army), or
  • Other Specialty Lift Plans (lift plans that follow a specific forms or outlines provided by certain General Contractors, Property Owners, or Manufacturers that have set lifting procedures),
  • P.E. Signed & Sealed Lift Plans (often this requirement follows with the need for a critical lift plan, however, they have been requested as stand alone plans that we have the ability to provide without an added step)

We have the ability to provide either NCCCO Lift Director review of other companies lift plans or Professional Engineer review that would bear the PE’s signed & sealed approval. Our 3rd Party Lift Plan review service is focused towards assisting General Contractors, Property Owners, or Facility Managers so they are confident the crane & rigging company performing the work has a clear and thorough understanding of the lift requirements and a proper procedure for executing the lift(s).

We offer this service primarily for the specialty trades such as mechanical contractors, electrical contractors, steel erectors, glaziers, and precast erectors to name a few. This service is a benefit to the trades to assist them with estimating. We can also provide this service for general contractors, property owners and facility managers as a feasibility check and/or confirmation of another company’s crane selection for a particular lift scenario. 

Rigging design is often paired with our lift planning. Our rigging design service can range from standard rigging practices with typical rigging hardware to complex rigging systems and procedures that is signed and sealed by a professional engineer. We also provide design and fabrication plans for custom rigging devices.

Our alternate LHE design is for those jobs that are in tight spaces, near power lines where cranes are not an option, have limited head room or other challenges that require an out-of-the-box approach to the solution. We often find that these jobs require the use of hydraulic gantries, specialty forklifts, powered hoists, or air tuggers. 

Load weight calculation is a common service we provide our customers where the load weight or the center of gravity is unknown. This service is also typically paired with our lift planning and rigging design services.

While this list is for of our most typical services it is not all-inclusive. We enjoy and take pride in developing solutions for complex lifting and load handling problems.  

Our typical lift planning turnaround time is two to three days, and for the high priority jobs we offer expedited turnaround times for all of our services.

For jobs with critical lifts and/or ground bearing issues/constraints we offer a detailed evaluation of all outrigger loads throughout the assembly, hosting and disassembly process to ensure the maximum loading condition is utilized for planning and evaluation.
