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 installment 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 project researches; reference SST Preconstruction Services and Structural Analysis of SST Lab. I am in charge of collecting information regarding: Bid Estimate Comparison, Advertisement Strategy, Permit Compliance. This project seeks funding from Cal Poly trade partners, to help allocate our resources to minimize cost savings/impacts. As well as partially self-allocating proportion of this crane project, while using Cal Poly Facilities Management and Development to manage any proper permitting requirements.
