STEVENS POINT — A piece-by-piece dismantling of the J.H. Findorff & Son tower crane has marked progress in the construction of the new Sentry office building on Northpoint Drive.
The notable tower crane, which has taken up part of the area skyline for the last 10 months, has come down as the construction of the seven-story Sentry office building continues. According to a Sentry press release, the crane’s dismantling is considered a ‘milestone’ for the project.
The top of the crane came down Tuesday, with the rest dismantled on Wednesday morning.
The crane stood at 217 feet above the ground, with a radius of 213 feet. It can hoist up to 21,450 pounds. It has been utilized in getting workers much of the materials used for building construction, which includes concrete, steel, wall panels, roofing, electrics, and drywall.
The office has an expected completion date of early 2019.
