Spring time is here and which means football season is right around the corner. Auburn University is in full swing with campus upgrades, restaurants popping up on every corner, new housing developments, and of course stadium upgrades. A lot has changed since my graduation date in 2001 and I can honestly say that it’s not the same little village i once knew. Hey, that’s okay! I still enjoy the atmosphere and my favorite go to spots that I love so much.
Over the past few years G&R has assisted many contractors on projects to Jordan-Hare Stadium. This particular project we assisted Metal Roofing Solutions with the construction of the Harbert Family Recruiting Center. Further reading on the project can be located here OANOW.
Crane used – Link-belt HTC 3140: 140 ton crane
Metal Roofing Solutions contacted us to help them with installation of the PBR insulated wall panels for the Harbert family Recruiting Center. With multiple panels to install the Link-Belt 3140 handled this project with ease. Since the panels only weighed 1,000 pounds each this made for easy mobilization, de-mobilization to and from the project also making operations smooth and quick. Moreover, this crane allow for us to setup with the upmost caution to protect the investment Auburn University is making in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
