Crane Action on the Jobsite

Some days, life on the job site is more exciting than others. Today we employed the use of a large crane to lift two long steel beams and some roof trusses in place. It seemed the whole neighbourhood stopped to watch the action.

All the action was over in about an hour. Our guys made it look so easy. I know there was a lot of preparation work to get ready for the crane. All the pieces fit perfect!
