Machinery Design, Moving, & Installation

Machinery Moving

Because moving large machinery is a multistep operation, each stage must be specified, and everyone involved must have a clear grasp of their responsibilities. Here are the basic steps we take with every moving project:

  1. Plan. The rigging team must make a detailed plan, laying out the exact specifications, equipment used, team members, and required safety measures of the job.
  2. Provide PPE. Since safety is the first priority of our industry, employees must wear personal protective equipment (PPE), such as vests, safety glasses, and steel-toe shoes.
  3. Select moving equipment. Using the right tools and machinery for lifting heavy industrial equipment is vital. In most cases, having the smallest possible clearance is preferred. The most common types of lifting and moving equipment are cranes, jacks, and forklifts.
  4. Transport. Different states have various laws regulating the transportation of heavy or oversized equipment to and from a site. A professional mover will be familiar with these regulations and know how to secure equipment so that it does not get damaged or cause damage to its surroundings during transit.

Base Construction, Inc.’s skilled riggers make tough lifting work safer and more efficient. We can transport a wide range of heavy gear and equipment, including:

  • All kinds of machinery
  • Heat Exchanger, cooling tower
  • Furnaces and boilers
