Hitting all the right notes at Harpa Concert Hall

6th floor553393_10151082685584406_1828793833_nLast year UNIC mini spider cranes helped create a new home for the Icelandic Opera and their national symphony orchestra, the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre on Reykjavik’s East Harbour development. A number of mini cranes hired from Icelandic UNIC dealers Smakranar were used throughout the two year construction project to lift around 250 tonnes of steel, curtain walling and glass.

To soundproof concert halls around the building, UNIC mini cranes helped install glazing and curtain walling panels from inside the building. Timber plates, 600 tonnes of steel frame, triple glazed windows and sound isolation panels were lifted into position by UNIC URW-506 mini cranes. UNIC mini cranes also provided solutions for moving sound equipment, building materials and air conditioning units into locations which other larger machines couldn’t reach.

A UNIC URW-295 spider crane took on a particularly challenging glazing job where it managed to lift glass units onto the building’s façade from the sixth floor. Mini cranes worked in a number of locations around the complex, lifting glazed panels from 80kg to 600kg.  This compact crane also lifted steel beams weighing 900kg each to create staircases and reinforced walls for the Harpa Centre’s new car park.

With some help from Smakranar’s UNIC mini cranes, the Harpa Concert Hall project was completed to schedule and the venue was ready in time for the grand opening.
