The owner inquired if it would be possible to build the roof on the ground at the same time that the steel framework for the floors was being done and to hoist the completed roof into place to avoid the severe winter working conditions. Marid, along with Sani Engineering, took on the task and developed a plan that would allow the pitched roofs and framing steel to be assembled on the ground and erected in 7 modules. The hoisting of these modules required the construction of custom made lifting frames so as to maintain a balance load for the three largest modules to be installed using two cranes. The project was accomplished and the owner realized savings by having the roofs completed during better working conditions.
