Rooftop Challenges

When a contractor needed to service the roof of a 10-story building near downtown Oakland, they turned to Bigge for a solution. The project posed a significant challenge: removing debris and delivering new materials 150 feet above ground level at a community college building. The task required precision, reliability, and the ability to handle heavy loads at great heights. 

Bigge selected the Liebherr LTM 1220 All Terrain Crane from their Northern California fleet to meet this challenge. Their choice was based on the crane’s renowned performance, ensuring that the complex logistical needs of the project could be met efficiently and safely.
