OVERHEAD CRANE SYSTEM FOR THE SCENE DOCK AT THE NATIONAL THEATRE'S 'DORFMAN THEATRE'

The National Theatre required an overhead crane system to be installed on the scene dock for the Dorfman Theatre to assist their teams with set builds.

The crane system the NT required would need to maximise their operational space and to achieve this a low headroom solution would be the best choice. The work space’s ceiling where the crane is to be installed was not entirely level, so our engineers would need to plan and agree a suitable suspension method for the crane.

BESPOKE OVERHEAD CRANE SYSTEM, MANUFACTURING PLANT

Works had recently been completed at the plant and due to the tight production schedule there was no scope to move machinery, ducting or conveyor equipment. Our installations team had to plan working around the existing machinery and would also need to complete installation had to be completed and satisfactorily tested during a very brief shutdown and maintenance window.

To ensure there were no space restrictions within the storage facility we needed to design the system to be completely in the warehouse roof with no mounted steelwork, as this would inhibit the building of large set pieces in this large work space.
