Cranes Across the City

It seems that wherever you look nowadays there's a crane in view across Birmingham, and whilst they may be considered boring by lots, there are many people who are very interested in them. If nothing else, we think they can be a great subject for photographers. Shown above is the installation of the very tall crane for Bank Tower Two on Broad Street in November. Here is a gallery of photos of cranes from the last year or so on various major construction sites. Click 'View Article' to view a gallery of photos of cranes from the last year or so on various major construction sites.

The installation of the massive crane for the construction of Bank Tower two by Wates Group on the Left Bank Site on Broad Street.

 

An unusual sight, all the cranes at the Smethwick Super Hospital face in the same direction during the high winds in October.

 

Not the tallest crane, but this one at the construction of the Unite Union HQ in Aston has a huge reach.

 

Before the main construction cranes go in, moble ones start with the preparation and early stages, here the two at Paradise Birmingham rest during a break at One Chamberlain Square.

 

The cranes at Three Snow Hill, one is tethered to the core for extra support and stability.

 

The cranes at Three Snow Hill seen from the Aston University campus.

 

A black sky after a heavy rain shower is the backdrop for the new HSBC HQ building.

 

The crane for Bank Tower Two being installed in November.

 

The cranes above Paradise Birmingham framing the one at Exchange Square in the Eastside near Masshouse from the 'Secret Garden' atop the Library.

 

The crane above Bank Tower One against an evening summer sky.

 

The installation of the main crane for One Chamberlain Square at Paradise Birmingham, the crane being used to demolish the old Natwest Tower on Colmore Row.

Giddy viewing, even from below as the cab for the Bank Tower Two crane is lifted into position.
