Rigging & Assembly Made Efficient by Color Coding

Rigging & Assembly Made Efficient by Color Coding

On a recent construction project at a New Jersey laboratory, R. Baker & Son was tasked with rigging 18 air handling units that were each shipped in multiple sections, as well as large dehumidifiers, pump skids, heat exchangers, lift stations, etc. Eleven motor control centers and distribution panels shipped in pieces required assembly, as well. With over 150 pieces of equipment and hundreds of parts that needed to be rigged, assembled, and installed in the five-story building in a specific order, the project required precise planning and coordination by the R. Baker & Son rigging team. The schedule was tight and mistakes would be very costly in both time and money.

Two 130-ton cranes with extended jibs were used to rig equipment through exterior panels and louvers into mechanical rooms as well as through a large atrium skylight. Project tasks included clearly marking all housekeeping equipment pads with a number corresponding to equipment slated for installation. Each piece of equipment received was verified by model and serial number and tagged with numbered, color-coded ribbons marked with the pad on which they were to be installed, which direction the unit should be facing, and the order in which the equipment or section should be hoisted. R. Baker & Son rigging teams were provided with a detailed rigging and routing plan and marked-up drawings, and the colored ribbons made it easy for the crane operator to determine what was to be lifted and when. 

The project was completed safely over a four-week period, on time, and on budget.
