Georgia Pacific Project

Each year, we have the pleasure of installing the pink ribbon for October breast cancer awareness, the mustache in November for Movember – men’s health awareness, and the Christmas wreath for Christmas. We store the ribbon, mustache, and wreath for the customer year round in our indoor storage facility. In October, we transport the ribbon to the GA Pacific building and set the ribbon on the building. In November we remove the ribbon and install the mustache, and in December, we remove the mustache and install the wreath. After Christmas we remove the wreath and store until the next year.

PROJECT SUMMARY: This project required the use of our boom truck, rigging team and Superior’s storage facility.

Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 – 350-ton Crane

In 2017, we purchased a Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2; a COLOSSAL, 350-ton, cutting-edge crane system, which will assist with our complex projects and operations throughout Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding areas.

The Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 is a six-axle machine which features an innovative drive concept: an engine in the undercarriage which powers the superstructure using a mechanical shaft. The machine is versatile with a maximum load capacity of 350-tons and a maximum tip height of 390-feet. The inventive engineering allows for high performance with variable boom options.

We have enjoyed using the Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 crane to assist with projects like the Philips Arena Renovations, which hosts the Atlanta Hawks and various concerts/events.

We work tirelessly to provide solutions for projects requiring heavy steel, erecting and rigging needs. Established in 1952, we have the experience and industry-wide reputation for mobilizing the most complicated heavy steel projects in the United States; from coast-to-coast.

Philips Arena Renovations Project

Superior Rigging & Erecting had the pleasure of leading renovations at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, which hosts the Atlanta Hawks and various concerts and events. It was the 2nd largest arena renovation in the world second to Madison Square Garden.

CUSTOMER: SteelFab, Inc (Subcontracted Structural Package from AJV)

PROJECT: Structural Erection for Philips Arena Renovation Phases 1, 2 and 3 (677 tons)

According to Jason Romine, the project manager at SteelFab, Inc., surveying restrictions and construction schedule posed two critical problems for the renovations, however, Superior’s role in defining a realistic delivery schedule that was accurate was critical to the success of the project.

What Was The Result of Working with Superior Rigging & Erecting Co.?

“Collaboration, collaboration and more collaboration. I truly feel getting to know the challenges that SRE was facing and them getting to know the challenges we were facing made both of us able to support each other for the overall success of the job. Couldn’t have done this project without this top notch team!” – Jason Romine
