Construction Begins at USTAR

Jul 6 2011

Bigge's Peiner SK415 tower crane arrived in January at the USTAR (Utah Science Technology and Research) project at the University of Utah. The new 200,000 square foot research complex should be completed in 2012.

The crane stands at 225’ HUH (height under hook) configured with a 246’ jib that will be used to erect the concrete and steel structure. Along with erecting the Peiner SK415, Bigge crews also worked with the general contractor to erect their own Liebherr 420 tower crane for the project. We used a 230-ton Manitowoc 888 crawler crane to erect the two tower cranes.

Bigge’s Tower Crane Division offers a diverse selection of cranes for any high-rise construction project. Tower crane service is available throughout the country with engineering support, factory-trained technicians and assisting cranes.

Contact Jesse Sullivan at or (510) 639-4045 for any upcoming tower crane and hoist project requirement.
