Lift & Install The KayneMaile Screen

Feb 21, 2020 | Crane Hire Services

Load 28 crane hire was engaged by our client Commercial & General to undertake the lifting and install of KayneMaile Screens to their Angas Street Project.

This would be the largest screen of this type ever installed in Australia in one lift.

The largest screen measured 50 metres long and 20 metres high. (1000 sqm)

Load 28 worked extensively with the client to plan the lift, by undertaking many consultation meetings with the client; to work out the lifting and bolting method required.

Using lift planning software, Load 28 calculated the lift requirements, calculating the crane position and rigging method. Safe Work Method statements were reviewed and control measures implemented to manage the risk.

Using a scaffold platform, Load 28 assembled all the steel sections and secured the screen in a position to lift.

The day prior to the lift, we prepared all the spreader bars needed to lift the screen evenly.

On the day of the lift, we completed a prestart meeting with all crew, clearly identifying roles and responsibilities to ensure a smooth lift controlled lift.

The lift and install was completed very successfully, with the screen lifted and installed in one day.

We had quite an audience on the day with our client and representation from Kaynemaile (New Zealand company) in attendance to watch.

Our client was very happy with the result, and it was quite amazing to watch the sheer size of this screen being hoisted into position.

We completed a video of this work to highlight the activity required to make this a successful project. Please watch this video in conjunction with this submission.


Check out Load 28 Supervisor Luke showcasing our recent TC4 climb for valued client IJ Projects. Coordinated and focused, our amazing rigging team managed this lift so efficiently and safely.

This is not an easy project, as we are working with some close tolerances in the core, but true to Load 28’s innovative mindset, we designed a new chocking method to ensure we keep everything stable and safe throughout our climb. 


One should never underestimate the value and importance of positive client feedback.

Our TC3 went in the air successfully mid-March for our esteemed client Tandem Building Group for their 88 O’Connell Street project. 

The feedback we received: “The boys smashed it today mate. Awesome crew.” 
You can’t ask for much better than that!


PJC Construct utilised the services of Load 28 to assist them with the installation of their Tower Crane. We were engaged to service, repair, install and commission the crane and handover to PJC ready to operate. 

Our technical team worked hard to prepare the unit safely, and will continue to service and maintain the equipment for the duration of the project. 


We love working alongside our valued client Steamranger Heritage Railway.

Check out the video above to hear from Oliver at Streamranger discussing our recent lift of their 621 large steam locomotive at Mount Barker.

Using the power of our fleet, including our 230 ton Liebherr and our 130 ton Liebherr, we managed the job safely and efficiently. As Oliver says, the team from Load 28 worked “patiently” and “perceptively” and “listened to their needs really well”.

Well done lads. Collaboration and teamwork at its finest.
