A MASSIVE FRAMEWORK LOUIS VUITTON FOUNDATION
GENIE
®
Z BOOMS SUPPORTED THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LOUIS VUITTON FOUNDATION FOR CREATION IN PARIS, FRANCE
Contemporary art has found anew Parisian home. Housed
fi ttingly in a building designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation opened its doors to the public in 2014, welcoming art lovers and architecture buffs to a striking structure located in the
Bois de Boulogne, adjacent to the appealing attractions of the Jardin d’Acclimatation. Perhaps the most notable feature of the building is its 145,313 sq ft (13,500 m) of glazed surfaces, consisting of 3,430 individually shaped glass panes, no two of which are alike, and whose installation posed a formidable challenge.
FEATURES THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE
A small army of Genie diesel articulating booms worked tirelessly at the Foundation’s site, performing numerous tasks – including, of course, the extremely delicate installation of the glass panels. Their fully proportional controls, operated by an ultra-fl exible magnetic-fi eld joystick, made these platforms particularly efficient for jobs that required deft and precise manoeuvres amid a forest of beams and girders, even when the booms were extended to their maximum working height of 52.5 to
141 ft (16 to 43 m).

PROVIDING BRITISH ANTARCTIC SURVEY THE PERFORMANCE REQUIRED IN EXTREME CONDITIONS The Halley Research Station is one of British Antarctic Survey’s
(BAS) scientific research stations on and around the Antarctic continentis used for gaining a global perspective on ozone depletion, atmospheric pollution, sea level rise and climate changes. Five Halley stations have been built since 1956. The first four have all been buried by the immense snow accumulation and crushed until they were uninhabitable. Halley V was built on steel platforms that had to be raised annually to keep the structure above the snow surface.
A design competition was launched in June 2004 to provide an innovative design for the new Halley VI research station. Construction started during the 2007-2008 research season. PERFORMING IN ANTARCTICA

BOOMS AT THE CORE AT QINGDAO BEIHAI SHIPYARD, CHINA
If you trace the origins of aerial work platforms
(AWP) in the Chinese market, you will fi nd shipbuilding and Genie booms at the core. One of the earliest companies to realize the advantages of working at height safely was Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co, Ltd (BSIC) based in the Qingdao, Shandong Province. Over the years, BSIC has purchased over 100 Genie telescopic booms which underscores their reliance and trust in the Genie name, including Genie Sand S telescopic booms to meet the harsh conditions of the shipbuilding environment in China. SAFELY DESIGNED FORA SEVERE
ENVIRONMENT
In 1996, BSIC was one of the first companies to contact Genie about self-propelled booms for shipbuilding. The self-propelled booms offered the advantages of jobsite versatility, safety and efficiency that was readily adopted and helped to play a role in the rapid growth of China’s shipbuilding industry.
The Sand S telescopic booms renamed Genie S-100HD and S-120HD) equipped with high strength steel tubing, extruded handrails, cushioned bumpers, steel meshing, heavy-duty foot switches and steel platform rotator protection to avoid damage caused by salt air, welding slag and cutting debris.
“Genie

equipment has contributed to the success of our company. Plus, the after sales service provides us with a particularly quick response. Without the use of these booms, the shipyard is equipped with scaffolding and project time can take several months. The application of the booms has improved the effi ciency greatly and helps to ensure workers safety as well.’’

ANTI-CORROSIVE COATING
ON MUDDY GROUND IN GERMANY
With thirty ve oil tanks that individually holdup to 26 million US GAL (100 million litres) on a
18.3 million ft (1,700,000 m) site, application of an anti-corrosive coating to each structure was costly and time consuming for Die Nord-West
Oelleitung GmbH, a holding facility that supplies crude oil to several re neries across Germany. With contractors on-site for up to a year, the company needed equipment that would speed the project’s completion on challenging terrain.
FASTER MAINTENANCE
OF GIANT OIL TANKS
FINISHING THE JOB SOONER AND BETTER The solution was a Genie S TraX telescopic boom, featuring a working height of 71 ft 5 in (21.86 m) and a four-point track system with a low ground pressure of
9.67 lb/sq in (0.68 kg/cm
2
) made light work of sodden and steep terrain.
During the painting process, the machines full height drive function enabled the workers to reposition the S TraX rapidly without needing to descend the boom. This cut man-hours considerably, compared to a static solution.
“We added Genie S-TraX models to our fl eet as, like elsewhere in Northern Europe, wet weather and mud are common in Germany, driving customer demand in many types of worksite.”

TOUGH ENVIRONMENT FORA TOUGH GENIE MACHINE IN BREMERHAVEN, GERMANY
Bremen-based Willenbrock Arbeitsbühnen (WAB)
GmbH & Co. KG was the fi rst company in Europe to acquire a Genie S telescopic boom lift. Shortly after receiving the new machine, it was immediately rented for six months to
Bremerhaven-based BLG WindEnergy Logistics for inspection work and to perform fi nal acceptance testing on offshore wind turbine tripods and components up to 197 ft (60 m).
CAREFUL WORK AT HEIGHT ON OFFSHORE WIND TURBINE
The BLG team was specifi cally trained to operate the Genie S by
WAB, and currently uses the boom lift to perform welding, and inspect welds and threaded joints on the tripods.
DESIGNED PRIMARILY FOR THE SHIPYARD MARKET This heavy-duty unit has a working height of 126 ft 6 in
(38.58 ma horizontal reach of 73 ft (22.26 m, and a lift capacity of 750 lb (340 kg. The S comes equipped with a Hostile Environment Kit as a standard feature. This provides reliable protection of controls, platform structure, and all cables from the harsh elements associated with working on ships, ports and offshore locations. The platform is not only designed to resist salt air and the related heavy oxidation, but is also resistant to welding slag, swarf, cutting and other falling debris. Joystick guards and a sealed control box cover with an angled lid make the controls not only remarkably user-friendly, but also help ensure that they are effectively protected 26

GENIE SX-180 BOOM LIFT AT WORK IN WASHINGTON, DC, USA
Cianbro Construction, a well-known contractor for handling projects that area bit out of the ordinary, erected the Capital Wheel in National Harbour, a multi-use waterfront development just south of Washington, DC. At 175 ft (53 m) high, this structure boasts some of the most iconic vantage points imaginable, offering views of the White House, Capitol building, National Mall and Arlington National Cemetery.
A SUPER BOOM FOR THE CAPITAL WHEEL”
“The Genie SX-180 boom, which we call The Monster Lift was instrumental in the assembly of the tower legs themselves, but one of the most crucial areas of the construction involved setting the wheel’s spokes into the hub or axle.”
Aric Dreher, Project Manager, Cianbro. (ACCESSING PLACES OTHER MACHINES COULD NOT With construction of the base completed, the structure’s tower legs were erected, followed by the installation of other ride components such as the axle, spokes, ring beams and lights.
This predetermined construction sequence — and being located at the end of aft m) pier — essentially dictated the manner in which the balance of the project could proceed.
While the actual height of the tower legs and components to be assembled could, in a normal setting, be reached using one of
Cianbro’s existing standard-sized booms, access was another matter entirely Only two spots were left from which a boom could operate to have access to both sides of the wheel. And on one of those sides the machine is setback more than 85 ft (26 m) and needs to reach 90 ft (27 m) into the air over the top and in between the tower legs — far more than a conventional piece of equipment could achieve.
With its 186 ft (57 m) working height, the Genie SX-180 boom filled that gap and its impact on the job site was felt immediately 34

Z AND Z ARTICULATING BOOMS PERFORMED BOTH INDOORS AND OUTDOORS
What made this job challenging was the fact that it involved placing and bolting or welding more than
1,200 separate I-beams. With those in place, the tilt wall sections were raised and held in place with shoring. Then, the operators had to begin bolting and doing a series of critical full-pin welds which involved coming in from the back through the shoring. So, during the early phases of construction, most of the work was done on the inside of the structure rather than the outside.
“During each facet of the project, the Genie Z-booms were a key component, largely because of the accessibility they provided. The design of the boom with the jib on the end of it, made the process of reaching in and getting around things much easier than we’d imagined Reuben Salcedo, CW Services Project Manager. (2012)

service, justice, when the artists submitted their proposal to senior police of cials, it was felt that a giant portrait of Gandhi would be appropriate.

Delhi-based artist Anpu Varkey, took on the challenge of painting a gigantic black and white portrait of Mahatma Gandhi onto ax m (150 x 38 ft) bare wall overlooking New Delhi’s Police headquarters.

S LIFT, A SAFE AND HIGHLY MANEUVERABLE SOLUTION
Designed to meet the challenges of some of today’s highest construction and industrial applications, particularly in congested areas, the Genie S telescopic boom lift proved to be a solution well suited for the artists high-reaching task. The four-wheel drive and steer capabilities of the S lift combined with the high vertical and horizontal reach required to work close to the high wall safely helped overcome the obstacles of the confines of the walls location, heavy traffic and crowds of curious on-lookers.
For five solid days, elevated above the hustle and bustle of the city beneath them, the spacious platform of the Genie S boom lift provided the artists all the room they needed to move around freely among the many pots of paint, ink and aerosols required to complete their masterpiece.
The S lift features along telescopic boom that can be extended or retracted in less than three minutes.

THE QUEEN BEE OF THE ARENAS IN SOUTH AFRICA
The most breathtaking events were set at the newly-built Green Point Stadium in Cape Town, host to the competition semi nals, and the newly-reconstructed Soccer City outside Johannesburg, which witnessed the electrifying
fi rst and fi nal matches. From the initial stage of the projects, the site managers were conscious of the diffi culty in accessing work areas on these very large structures, with capacities of 70,000 and 90,000 respectively, and the need for specialized equipment.
AT WORK FOR THE 2010
FOOTBALL WORLD CUP
“The project required a combination of height, reach and manoeuvrability that made the Genie Z boom the ideal machine for the job.”
George Landsberg, Managing Director of Hi-Reach Manlift (Pty) Ltd. (HIGH REACH AND AGILITY MADE THE DIFFERENCE The constraints of the environment meant a work platform was needed that could go up and over in addition to providing an up reach of over 131 ft (40 m) required to scale the stadia exteriors. The Genie Z model selected to tackle this feat offered the largest working envelope in the articulating boom market. Aided by its distinctive
Jib-eXtend

feature, to provide the fully extended height of 141 ft (42.9 m, horizontal outreach of
69 ft 9 in (21.3 m) and up-and-over clearance of 75 ft 6 in (23 m, the work platform could be positioned through gaps, even at the highest points of the structure, to rivet the external panels to the building.
