Building a structure requires an assortment of different equipment and machinery to make the construction process both safe and efficient. The amount of effort required to construct a building or a bridge is huge. While there is a plethora of different heavy lifting equipment to choose from, not all are fit for all types of construction projects and heavy loads. And seeing as these types of machinery and equipment are usually very expensive and require specific knowledge to operate, a company simply can’t justify the cost of keeping several different types of heavy lifting equipment in their possession.
But, we at Bygging-Uddemann have pretty much solved this issue. Our hydraulic heavy lifting equipment systems are suitable for practically all kinds of heavy loads whose placing or removal requires a high degree of precision.
In this article, we’ll explain the 5 benefits of using Bygging-Uddemanns hydraulic heavy lifting equipment in construction.
1. Simplified tasks
Construction projects often require multiple activities to be conducted simultaneously, and at a fast pace to meet deadlines. It leaves little to no room for mistakes or delays. Hydraulic heavy lifting equipment trivializes many of the processes, demanding less manpower, is easier to operate, and completes processes faster.
2. Safer – More comfortable
Construction work is often long and tedious with countless hours of lifting and carrying materials back and forth. Bygging-Uddemanns heavy lifting equipment in construction allows for a much safer and more comfortable work environment where the lifting and carrying won’t take its toll on the workers, making it both simpler and faster.
As mentioned before, heavy lifting machines and equipment are expensive investments. But they are also necessary investments for a construction company to make to be able to provide a high-quality service. Hydraulic heavy lifting equipment not only allows a company to perform practically all types of projects and lifting of heavy loads, but the longevity of Bygging-Uddemanns equipment is also worth the investment alone.
4. Material damage prevention
Expanding upon #3, hydraulic heavy lifting equipment is also designed to minimize the risk of damaging the materials, thus, saving money on having to replace damaged materials. Besides preventing damaging materials, it also reduces the risk while servicing and repairing existing constructions.
5. Minimizing the space required
Unlike other heavy lifting equipment such as cranes, hydraulic lifting equipment requires minimal space to operate. They are very compact, making them easy to carry and fit in restricted areas. Due to their size advantage, it can be put to use in situations where other equipment won’t fit.

A cistern is a large receptacle for storing and holding liquids. The construction of a cistern often has the purpose of trapping and storing rainwater until it is needed. They are also used to store other liquids such as oil. It is a complex construction which regularly needs to be serviced or repaired to guarantee its functionality.
In this article we’ll go over the ins and outs of cistern repair and explain how we at Bygging Uddemann can make sure your cistern is always up to standard.
How are cisterns used?
The water collected in cisterns is generally used for two purposes: domestic use and consumption.
For example, you can use the water to flush toilets, watering gardens and washing cars. Using rainwater to perform these functions can reduce the costs of delivering potable water from traditional supply systems (i.e., ordinary tap water).
Cisterns can also work as a container storing rainwater for consumption. This application is appropriate in areas with no constant supply of potable water, such as rural agricultural areas.
The importance of cistern repair
Emissions from leaking cisterns containing oil and other dangerous liquids can cause significant damage to soil, water, animals, and plants for a long time to come. The damage is difficult to fix and can be very costly for the person who caused the spill. Therefore, it’s vital to control and repair the cistern when necessary to protect soil and water from contamination.
It’s just as important to make sure that a building water cistern is fully functional. Without it, the inhabitants of for example an apartment building won’t be able to shower or effectively cook food. The water from fire water sprinklers are also usually connected to a cistern, meaning that if a fire breaks out, the system won’t be able to put it out.
How is a cistern repaired?
A concrete cistern repair may be needed if it is leaking or not working correctly.
As one of the leading steel tank manufacturers in the industry, Bygging-Uddemann has the knowledge to repair a variety of tanks. We also provide maintenance and modification services to extend the life and use of your cistern.
Cistern repair and modifications include but are not limited to:
- Replacement of the base of an old concrete cistern (or a cistern constructed out of other materials)
- Reinforcement of the cistern’s foundation
- Correctness of cisterns that tilt as a result of uneven settling
- Increment of the storage capacity of an existing steel cistern.
- The movement of steel cisterns horizontally for longer or shorter distances.
