July 31st, 2008

Aspen Colorado. Swinerton Construction noticed metallic cracking in a tower crane in use on one of their projects. The crane was close to being dismantled so they have stopped using the crane altogether. It sounds as if Swinerton is taking the lessons of crane collapses seriously and this is a breath of fresh air in an industry concerned about schedules.
The crane is owned by Lewis Equipment.
