How much thought did you give the last crane pad design on your project? Did you confirm its design was both reliable while also meeting project requirements? The foundation design of a crane pad is vital to a safe and effective project but even one small, unaccounted-for variable can leave a crane vulnerable to toppling, collapse or other unsafe conditions.
