It is possible to construct a crane almost anywhere, as long as you use the right kind of crane and you set it up properly. If you do these things, then you will be setting your crane up for success, wherever you decide to build it. From building sites to busy public areas, cranes can be seen all over towns and cities.
The set-up process and suitability will all depend on the type of crane required. There may be the need for a timber or mat base, and outriggers might need to be used. If you are using a tower crane, the tower and tail sections will usually need to be built up piece by piece. Other kinds of portable crane can be used straight away.
For indoor cranes, a jib crane will often work well. These are very versatile and can work in low headroom areas for more versatility on site.
