Sam Dawes, Business Development Manager
for Nationwide Platforms, worked closely with the project team to establish the best machines for the job, including a last-minute change of plan after a trial run before the event.
The team settled on two HL27 hybrid scissor lifts
to assist the lower-level build stages. For the more difficult and intricate latter stages of the project, Nationwide Platforms had two of its HR28 hybrid boom lifts
available on site. The articulating movement of these boom lifts, with their 28m working height
and combined 6m outreach
, enabled the arm to move closer to the pinnacle of the tower as it got taller and taller, making the machines vital for the meticulous placement of the final few blocks.
