Bigge Building Cedars-Sinai New West Tower

Bigge Crane and Rigging, California's largest engineered heavy lift and rigging firm, is assisting in the construction of the new west tower of the Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

(Vocus) June 4, 2010 -- Bigge Crane and Rigging, California's largest engineered heavy lift and rigging firm, is assisting in the construction of the new west tower of the Cedars Sinai Medical Center. The West Tower, when finished, will be eleven stories, reach 185 feet in the air, and add over 200,000 square feet to the existing Medical Center. Bigge will be using a Peiner SK575 tower crane to construct the tower. This crane will work on site until the completion of the tower, projected to be in late 2012.

Bigge has been involved in numerous phases of this project. Bigge assisted the project team with the engineering of the tower crane foundation, transported, erected, helped certify the crane, and will have a dedicated crew there to operate the crane for the duration of the job. The crane is freestanding with a hook height of over 250 feet and a jib of 213 feet. To erect the skyscraping tower crane, Bigge used a Demag AC 500, an all-terrain crane with a capacity of 600 tons. Bigge is working with Hathaway Dinwiddie, who is the general contractor on the project.

The new construction will provide over 100 additional beds, and help take some of the strain from the existing medical center. In 2008, Cedars-Sinai served over fifty thousand inpatients and saw almost half a million patients on an outpatient basis.


Bigge Crane and Rigging is one of North America’s largest crane sales and crane rental companies. Bigge offers completely turnkey operated and maintained crane, trailer, and construction hoist rentals. Our fleet is specifically outfitted with large crawler, tower, and rough terrain cranes for refinery work, wind turbine erection and maintenance, and industrial and commercial construction.
