Australian building company Creative Building Services is using a Potain MCT 385 flat top tower crane to build an eco-friendly nine-storey residential development in the country.

The Linq Apartment building is being built in Belconnen, to the north west of Canberra. The building is being constructed with e eco-friendly components and will include solar panels.

The 20 tonne capacity crane has been rented from Canberra-based crane rental company, RAR Group. It has a 2 metre mast and a maximum free standing height of 64.9 m.

Graeme Rumble, one of the founders of RAR Group, said, “We chose Potain because we were happy with the reliability and functionality of our other Manitowoc cranes.”

Four other Potain MC 310 K12 tower cranes, owned by RAR, are working on residential and commercial projects in and around Canberra, a company spokesperson added.
