ALE go for gold with Parque Roca roof installation

ALE has completed the roof installation of the Olympic Parque Roca swimming pool in Buenos Aries, Argentina.

The lifts were performed in December and finished in January. ALE installed six sections, weighing up to 50t, as well as a springboard and steel structure, using a 600t crawler crane with a luffing jib and 30.5m mast. By deploying this crane, which is slightly smaller than other crane options, ALE delivered a more efficient configuration and was ultimately a more cost-effective method for the client.

Due to the time restrictions, ALE had to work to a strict schedule and were able to assemble other lightweight parts as well.

Alejandro Gil, ALE Project Engineer said, “We were chosen following our previous success with roof lifts across the Latin American region and for the alternative lifting solution we proposed, which minimised costs to the client.

“The team worked really hard to quickly mobilise the equipment and it paid off when we were able to complete the roof installation ahead of schedule.”

The roof was as part of the Parque Roca stadium that will host the Youth Olympic Games in October 2018.
