Taking it apart

Story and photos


The tower crane set-up for a Bridgewater construction project was dismantled this month.

Workers spent a couple of days dismantling the structure, which had been fixed to concrete slab since last summer.

Most of the pieces were taken down January 20.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the multi-storey, 38-unit residential complex, located off Hirtle Drive on the town's east side.

The tower crane, ordinarily a common sight in larger urban centres, is the go-to construction mechanism for erecting tall buildings, industry experts say, because of its elite lifting and height combination. The huge piece of equipment, not often seen in the town, had attracted a lot of attention.
