Our Engineering Department with Senior Transport Consulting Professionals analyse the impact of abnormal loads on the surrounding environment providing specialist reports and intricate route planning for all the heavy transport projects we undertake.
Our transport consulting services provide logistical route planning and specialist reports to facilitate safe and professional heavy transport. Having operated an in-house Consulting Department for over a decade, we are unique in that our Consulting Division is incorporated to work alongside our projects, heavy transport and industry sectors.
"Expertlift engineering division" is a "spin-off department" created to support the continuous requests for dedicated engineering know-how.
Exes Heavy has been qualified and certified by CESA, also as Engineering Company thanks to its in-house "first class" engineering department. Engineering is not only the capability to make complex structural calculations but also the ability to choose for the most effective technical solutions and the appropriate equipment and means of transports and lifting, considering all the aspects concerning safety, quality and environment, reliability of the service offered, budget and activity planning, in order to satisfy clients requirements.
During the feasibility phase Expertlift is willing to act as a real partner, working side by side with the client and proposing alternative cost-saving solutions. During the bid stage, our Engineering Department supports the Commercial Management in identifying the most suitable means and equipment for the execution of the projects, issues the Method of Statements and drawings, analyses the Technical Specifications of the Client and the Technical aspects of the offer/tender.
The Engineering Department prepares also the Technical Specifications for the procurement and the construction of the equipment such as specific saddles, supports, beams... that will be used during the transport/lifting operations.
In-house engineering means also risk reduction. To achieve this Expertlift uses the most sophisticated computer programs to perform accurate engineering studies in order to complete safe transport and lifting thanks to the latest generation of technical drawing software and 3d movie simulation technology used to calculate all possible risks and reproduce the movement of the whole transport and lifting operation.
During the execution stage, the Engineering Department supports the Operative Division, by issuing all the necessary documents for the preparation and the execution of the job on site:
Transport and Lifting drawings with all the details of the means and equipment to use.
Calculations Statement (stability, structural, ballasting, load in and load out operations)
Operative procedures explaining the safest way to execute the jobs; organisation charts; check list for the preparation and control of the equipment; step by step description of the operations; operational methods (tolerances, maximum speed, wind speed limitations, maximum reactions...) for a safety execution; in house equipment "CE" certification by professional engineers.
All the documents issued by Engineering Department are "safety-oriented" for all the activities on site, activity prepared in cooperation with the HSE department: issuing of Safety Manual, Method of Statement, Safety Job Analysis, Risk Assessment, Near Miss Reports...
