In tilt-up construction is the crane used on the inside or the outside of the building?
Both methods are used, depending on circumstances. Positioning the crane on the inside is the more common and it has the advantage that the floor provides a smooth operating area. It requires, however, that the floor be designed and constructed to support the heavy and concentrated loads imposed by the crane. In planning any job it is advisable to have a conference ahead of time with the crane contractor, who should visit the jobsite and make recommendations about crane size, location of hardware in panels and techniques to be used.
