Traditional methods of timber frame construction are
labour-intensive and time-consuming. This paper details a
study of the crane-erect method of construction which
utilises on-site preparatory work and off-site fabrication.
The paper also examines the project planning alterations
and implications which are required for crane-erect construction to be successful and the feasibility of crane erect with regard to improved time, cost and safety.
