Time-lapse of dock crane dismantling for Down Under.

Liberty Industrial carried out the deconstruction of the historic Hammerhead Crane located at the Garden Island Naval Base on Sydney Harbour.

The project involved dismantling a giant cantilevered dockside crane for the Department of Defence. The structure was progressively dismantled in large sections in a highly choreographed sequence, engineered to maintain the structural stability of the crane.

In addition to the removal of the structure, the project had a substantial salvage component with the preservation and restoration of numerous heritage significant components of the crane.
