         do the job in hand. We also had to deal
         with the fact that this was a grade two-
         listed building and the gate we had to get
         through limited us to a smaller selection
         of cranes due to width restrictions. The
         height of the building was 14m but we
         needed to achieve 17m of reach with the
         crane to get the tower onto the building;
         the crane stand-off was 11m.”
