It has been a long 18-24 months for school officials throughout the country. 

Administrators had to navigate the challenging, uncharted waters of maintaining quality education during a global pandemic that forced people to stay at home for over a year. They had extraordinarily difficult decisions to make about how to facilitate learning remotely, when to bring teachers and students back to campus, how to celebrate graduations, and what measures to take to prepare for something similar in the future. 

This was all on top of the typical challenges they face balancing parents and student expectations, Budget constraints, test scores, and everything else that makes teachers and school administrators unsung heroes. 

As life slowly returns to a version of normal, students and teachers are mostly back on campus. Administrators are now performing more standard versions of their jobs, such as scheduling everyday maintenance tasks. 

If one of those maintenance tasks happens to involve replacing a roof, you will likely need to rent a crane. There are a lot that factors into crane rentals for any project, especially when it involves a learning institution. 

There is a lot to do when it comes to preparing for a construction project. You have to draw up the plans, make sure they are approved and permitted by municipalities and put the right people in place to execute each aspect of the design and development of the building, road, or green space. 

At some point, you may find there are materials far too heavy to be moved by the machinery you have available. At that point, you know you're going to need to buy or rent a crane. 

When it comes to renting or buying a crane, there are numerous important factors to consider. Before you ever begin moving heavy objects, you need a plan for who will operate the crane, calculate the load you'll be lifting, and ensure every safety measure will be taken to protect lives and property. 

This can be a lot for which to plan during your already complicated project. Yet, there are few products that pose a greater risk if not operated correctly. 

One solution to significantly reduce the headache of crane operation on your job site is to rent from a full-service crane company. Here are a few of the benefits of working with crane companies that do it all. 

Cranes are a big deal. We mean that quite literally. 

They are some of the largest and heaviest pieces of construction machinery and are used to lift and move the biggest and weightiest materials on your site. If you need a crane for your site, you need to make sure you are renting the right equipment from the right company. 

Here are five key factors to consider when choosing your crane rental company.

For residents of the Charlotte area, ongoing construction is a way of life. People see building projects and do not even think twice. The exception might be if something is being built in their area and they are curious about whether or not it is an interesting new business. Otherwise, with the amount of new growth in our area, construction sites probably seem like they grow on trees. At least, that is the case until something goes wrong. 

There is an inherent danger in every project, but the public usually doesn’t notice until there is an accident. 

When it comes to municipal construction projects, they are a public trust. Just as in private projects, safety, financial responsibility, and efficiency are all vital. 

If you are responsible for a public construction project, you owe it to taxpayers and residents to move forward with the utmost integrity.
