Advantage Crane has been selected as the sole crane supplier to the Kinsol Trestle Project. This project is the largest heritage restoration project in Canada. Knappett Construction and Macdonald & Lawrence have, to say the least, a tough project.
Access to the ailing structure is the first of many obstacles faced. The remote and steep valley which the trestle spans makes applying equipment very difficult. Advantage has had as many as four cranes on site including the 275 ton to install the steel trusses. The cranes had to be lowered down steep access roads where they sat perched on engineered lock block crane pads on the side of the steep banks.
