AFI recently responded to a last-minute request to supply boom lifts to steel erector Wisconco, working on the steelwork for a new £50 million (US$ 80 million) exhibition centre being built in Liverpool.

Wisconco hired four JLG 800AJ articulating booms, fitted with the SkyGuard secondary guarding system. The boom lifts have a working height of 26.38 m and a horizontal outreach of 15.74 m, giving Wisconco the range of movement, reach and versatility required to enable its operatives to erect the steelwork safely and efficiently.

The new development, called Exhibition Centre Liverpool, will be connected to the Liverpool Arena and Convention Centre and will more than double the exhibition space available.
