Tower Crane

A 309-foot-tall tower crane, which is taller than the length of a football field, has been erected within the site of the new residence hall. This crane will be a permanent fixture for the duration of the construction and a key component to the project since it will aid in lifting heavy loads (up to 43,000 pounds!) to great heights.

The tower crane took a crew of workers over 20 hours to assemble.
