How do you get large equipment to the opper floors of a major downtown building? Check out this video of an equipment airlift at the One Wilshire building in downtown Los Angeles. In April 2007 CRG West used a helicopter to airlift 53 pieces of electrical and air conditioning equipment to a 27th floor of One Wilshire. This sequence of still photos shows a 30-ton AC unit being hoisted onto a small platform.
CRG West has additional video of a separate chopper lift to the 28th floor in March 2007. See our archives for more images of One Wilshire and our recap of the sale of the building last year.
