Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

HVAC Chiller Facility Construction

Project: Steel Erection & Chiller Plant Construction
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Equipment: 500 Ton Liebherr All Terrain Crane


Project Overview

Summary: An expansion of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia requires dedicated facilities for managing HVAC. To meet this need a high capacity Chiller Plant and facility was constructed on the former premises of the Philadelphia Convention Center along University Avenue just outside of Center City Philadelphia.

The Challenge: Huge steel beams, a long reach and a short time-table meant that things had to go like clockwork. Equipment breakdowns were unacceptable and work had to progress in a safe, swift manner in order to meet the project deadlines.

The Thackray Advantage Thackray Crane Rental provided the crane equipment, custom engineered ground stabilization platforms also known as mats to prevent the crane from sinking into the soft ground, over 300 tons of crane counterweights, all boom equipment and of course our huge 500 Ton Liebherr all terrain mobile crane. It did take a while but work safely finished after hundreds of lifts that included steel beams, HVAC equipment, tools, and lots of other equipment and parts to keep the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia or CHOP Chillers humming smoothly away!
