Kingston University update 14 – Double Tee units being installed through the structure

PCE infills the structure following the removal of the second tower crane

The latest update for PCE Ltd’s Kingston University Town House project at Kingston upon Thames near London, focuses on the installation of Double Tee units.

The 12.5 tonne Double Tee units have been lowered through the building using an adjustable chain block – remote controlled by the Banksman, allowing the units to be lowered at an angle through an opening smaller than its own length.
