Crane lift at the Courtyard by Marriott in Santa Monica  

Posted: Tuesday, July 26, 2016

The Courtyard by Marriott in Santa Monica, California had an exciting undertaking on its premises recently.  It's not every day that you get to witness a super cool hydraulic crane lift much less get to record it in high definition, but this was the day.  The video below takes you into that moment when Lusardi installed the roof top equipment on a 70 foot, six-story building where the mechanical HVAC equipment was being placed. This particular job required a total of 20 guys on the ground and roof to place a cooling tower, boiler and make-up air unit that weighed a whopping 9 tons.  This job took one day to accomplish, bur weeks of preparation, planning and coordination with the city of Santa Monica.
