Lifting: A Crane, Materials Hoist, or both?

by | Sep 16, 2020 | Interpod News

Since each building site is driven by a tight schedule, it’s important to consider every element that may impact the construction process.

Bathroom Pods are designed to eliminate time lost with re-work, material hold-ups and weather related delays; but even greater efficiencies can be achieved by utilising the bathroom pod logistic option that best suits your site.

Both Cranes and Materials Hoists are suitable for moving Bathroom Pods from ground level into the building. Either option has equal benefits that are solely driven by the requirements of the project; there is no right or wrong.

Bathroom Pod dimensions, your construction schedule and the number of bathrooms in the project will all be factors to consider when determining what logistics option is best.

Crane Hoist System for Pods:

  • Our Modular bathroom pods are manufactured with a fast purpose-built hoist system that drastically reduces crane lift time
  • Interpod’s exclusive crane hoist system lifts a Pod from the ground into the building in 2 minutes
  • Simple to use connection points on the base of the Pod provide a safe, easy lifting solution

Materials Hoist alternative for Pods:

  • Ideal when a site crane is not an option, or the crane schedule is dedicated to other requirements
  • Bathroom pods can be moved between levels in an Alimak, subject to the hoist and pod size
  • Common Alimak Goods & People Hoist – suits bathroom pods 2.7H x 1.9W x 4.8L (ideal for Student Accommodation pods)
  • Large Material Hoist – suits bathroom pods at any height x 3.2W x 3.2L (ideal for Aged Care pods & Apartment pods)
