Cranes & Runway Design


Our firm specializes in design, evaluation and repair of industrial crane and runway structures, including fatigue life assessment.


We have designed and evaluated structures up to 100 ton capacity to meet the requirements of CMAA, AIST and CSA for all service classes. These include top-running and under-running bridge cranes, semi-gantry and gantry cranes, simple span, continuous and self-supporting runways, monorails, jib cranes and stacker cranes.


We have successfully assisted clients on many occasions to make improvements to existing structures to overcome fatigue failures and to extend service life of existing equipment as an alternative to costly replacement, or to restore structural integrity so that equipment can be returned to production on an interim basis.


We have designed hundreds of below-the-hook lift devices for specialized industrial, manufacturing, or production applications.
