Lift & Slide Spreydon Lodge
Client Problem: The client needed to develop the site for a subdivision and wanted to retain the heritage building as a focal point and cafe at the entrance. To do this the lodge needed to be moved and repositioned.
House Lifters’ Solution: House Lifters were able to come up with the most environmentally friendly and cost effective option. First sliding the heritage building 50 metres on the Ground Screw and track system and then rotating and repositioning the 40 tonne structure onto brand new foundations.
“Being in the building industry, I knew what could go wrong if I didn’t choose the right company for the job. When Rod saw the house and looked at the plans, he was confident about what needed to be done, and enthusiastic about the challenge. But the other contractors who I got quotes from, either I could tell that because the lift was so complex, they didn’t want to do it (and their price reflected that)… Or their methodology of how they were going to do it, didn’t give me confidence. The lift went well and House Lifters were very efficient at providing information and documentation to the Engineer. The ‘close-out’ paperwork was sent quickly too.”
