Garco Construction operates Link-Belt cranes around the clock in Seattle

The Spokane-based company will complete initial foundation work for the 1,500,000 square foot convention center expansion

Garco Construction operates Link-Belt cranes around the clock in Seattle

In the second quarter of 2019, Seattle City Council reached agreement on funding the largest new development in the city's history - a $1.6 billion expansion of the Washington State Convention Center. Joint venture Clark-Lewis was awarded a $960 million construction contract for the project.

Garco Construction of Spokane, Washington will complete initial foundation work for the 1,500,000 sq. ft. (139 354 sq. m) convention center expansion. Garco has recently acquired two additional Link-Belt Cranes for the project, a 110-ton (100-mt) TCC-1100 and a 200-ton (182-mt) 248 HSL from Triad Machinery, the Pacific Northwest Link-Belt distributor.  

In addition to their crane purchases, Garco rents several other cranes from Triad Machinery including a 75-ton (70-mt) TCC-750, 120-ton (110-mt) TCC-1200, and 110-ton (100-mt) 218 HSL.

The cranes primarily lift rebar and forms on-site, with 218 HSL, TCC-1100, and TCC-1200 and 248 HSL mainly used for the foundation - lagging with soldier piles and pouring concrete for walls. The deepest point of excavation will be 75 ft. (22.8 m) below street level.
