The presentation will use the example of the project to discuss “making the right choices” in tower crane selection.

He has a degree in mechanical engineering and started in the construction industry with UK-based contractor Laing O’Rourke. In 2005 Salt started in tower cranes, as Select Plant Hire general manager, in the Lifting Solutions division.
