In the recent years, there has been interests regarding an overhead crane to be erected inside of Cal Poly Simpson Strong Tie Lab (Building 187). This under running single girder crane system will be used for construction classes, and to lift heavy equipment. The erection of this 2 Ton indoor crane will be crucial to provide modular pieces, for whom that lost their homes due to the California fires. Additionally, there has been previous senior projects researches; reference attached preconstruction services, and a full structural analysis of SST Laboratory.
