The Crowne Plaza hotel is being renovated by Westin and will open in April, 2014. Shown here is the four-level parking garage and scaffolding positioned alongside the hotel tower. Photo by Terry McIver, happy to be firmly planted on the ground!
The crew from All-Crane prepares to lift Multistack chiller modules. Each water-cooled module has a capacity of 70 tons.
A centrifugal chiller had to be removed from the roof of the hotel. The barrel section weighed approximately 12,000 lbs. Its associated motor and compressor, which were rigged down separately, weighed about 5,000 lbs and 3,500 lbs.
Crane is shown, with Cleveland's 200 Public Square building, Terminal Tower, and Key Tower in view.
The new cooling tower is a Evapco induced draft, counter flow cooling tower. Total weight is 12,020 lbs. The tower came in 4 sections, with the heaviest section weighing 4,370 lbs.
