Think big and act decisively to care for our lands and waters is what the Tseil Waututh Nation live by!
The Tsleil-Waututh Nation formerly known as the Burrard Indian Band or Burrard Band, is a First Nations band government in the Canadian province of BC who speaks the Downriver dialect of the Halkomelem language.
With a population increase of over 200% in the past 30 years, Tsleil-Waututh Nation has decided to build a new TWN Administration & Health Centre. And like most local projects, our cranes services were required to assist in the steady completion of the new development which will soon become a hub for the Nation’s administration, governance, health and social services.
Being in this industry for almost 30 years has given us the technical skills and confidence to explore and take on a wide range of projects. So, when our client mentioned the potential need to lift 120-foot-long panels (all in one piece), we didn’t shy away and ‘put our thinking cap on’. Our team came up with the idea of developing a brand-new modular spreader bar system that would allow the safe and stable hoisting of any complex roof profile.
Creative thinking is a big part of our job and when presented with a complicated and/or unusual request, we collaborate with the team and think outside the box, which allows us to stay ahead of industry changes. A perfect combination that gives us a sense of fulfillment, and keeps us motivated and engaged!
