Sparrow Crane Hire helps with Sunflower lift
After an unfortunate driving incident, The Sunflower sculpture created by Ironart and situated at the bottom of Bathwick Hill in Bath, Somerset was damaged by a direct hit during the Christmas break. Fortunately, the driver was ok but sadly the level of damage means that it is beyond economical repair.
Sparrow Crane Hire was asked to assist very early Sunday 16th Feb 2020, to avoid the weekend traffic. The dismantling team assembled on the roundabout at the bottom of Bathwick Hill, Bath to remove the damaged Sunflower. Even though it was sad to see The Sunflower come down in these circumstances, the process of taking it apart went well and within two hours The Sunflower and it’s 4 large concrete counterweights had all been removed successfully. Sparrow using the Mini Crane KATO CR-80c to carry out this lift. A few residents assembled to watch the process and were sad to see the Sunflower go too.
Ironart are currently in negotiations with Bath and North East Somerset Council as to whether they will rebuild it for a potential new home in the city.
