UNM Air Handlers

Deliveries of air handling units for the University of New Mexico Children's Hospital were delayed, however constructors chose to maintain schedule and erect the building's frame then place the units inside the building upon their arrival.

Required for this project was a device that would enable the units to be placed inside the building's structure.  Crane Service's staff solely engineered and fabricated a 18 ft x 22 ft aerial work platform with a capacity of 20,000 lbs.  The units were placed on the platform, hoisted to the third floor, the platform was anchored to the structure, and the units were transported to their designated location.
