Saskatoon is getting a fantastic new art gallery – the Remai Modern – opening in 2016. This beautiful new building, currently under construction, has been designed with floor to celing windows to let in as much natural light as possible. And that’s where Burnt Timber Lifting Solutions got in on the action.
Dynamic Glass and Door Ltd. were hard at work on the project, but overhangs on each floor restricted access, preventing the use of most traditional methods of glass installation. Typically the glass would be held using a larger crane and vacuum lift device, but because of the overhangs the winch cable would hit the overhang before the glass gets to where it needs to be.
Our mini-cranes were the perfect solution!
