High-al­ti­tude work­site

Manag­ing a work­site at more than 3000m en­tails some in­evitable prob­lems, in­clud­ing the weather – much more so than a tra­di­tional work­site.

In the case of the Vittorio Veneto al Sasso Nero refuge, de­signed by Hel­mut Stifter and An­ge­lika Bach­mann and built by Burg­er­bau, this was re­solved by Nieder­stät­ter and a Lieb­herr 65K crane (taken apart lower down and re­assem­bled on top) which al­lowed for ex­treme work con­di­tions and mil­li­met­ric pre­ci­sion for con­crete and wood pre­fabs. The crane made con­struc­tion pos­si­ble and the sin­gle pieces were even lifted up at night.
