Hoisting & Lifting
At M.J. van Riel, we are very proud of many things. But if we are asked to name something off the cuff, the discipline of 'hoisting and lifting' regularly comes up first. This is not surprising since it forms the basis of our company; the work with which it all started more than 70 years ago and one that we have constantly developed over the years since then.
For those who have ever been on a construction site or in a workshop where heavy material is being hoisted, you know that such a job goes much further than just the move itself. It is a supreme moment where many different disciplines come together. It therefore requires careful interaction, in which the supply and processing of the object in question is really only the beginning. Because every hoisting and lifting job is particularly special because of the unique characteristics of the location where the project takes place. No two jobs are the same.
Behind each location there is a complex puzzle of points for attention which may not always seem clear at first sight. Anticipating traffic situations, diversions, permits, trees, lampposts and other environmental factors only covers a small part of all the influences that determine what the ideal execution should be like.
In any event, it means that every situation requires a unique approach. Sometimes it is the unconventional height that requires a creative solution while, at other times, it is the very limited freedom of movement that makes the job a special challenge.
