lifting lugs at top column or floor beams

lifting lugs at top column or floor beams

lifting lugs at top column or floor beams

(OP)
Hello every one,
I am designing a one floor industrial building (modularized in shop then transported to the site, lift and erect at site)located in a cold place so the building needs to be well insulated. we have two options for lifting the module on site:

1)on the top of the column;
2)or on the floor beam.

if the lugs on the top of the building, is the water leaking a problem for long run? can I count on cover plus caulk?

if the lugs on the floor beam, then we will have to remove the lugs after lifting because there are platforms all around the building, the platform is modularized as well. The building column and platform column share the same supporting pile between them. see the picture attached.

So what are the best option for the design? your thoughts are highly appreciated.




RE: lifting lugs at top column or floor beams

Can you attach them to the beam running the other direction, and just leave them in place?

Rather than think climate change and the corona virus as science, think of it as the wrath of God. Feel any better?

no, can not attach to the beam running the other direction, or leave it there.

I am sorry but i do not agree with you that you have only two options.. IMO, you have a lot of options and the use of lifting lug is not a good idea..The options that you are thinking require the lug would be welded to the roof or bottom beam then would be flame cutted or so..

I will propose provide lifting holes then plug with plastic cap. Just write prefabricated modular house , one of the outcomes,

Hi HTURKAK,
Thanks. i am wondering of you have any resources about design this? sounds like a good idea.

RE: lifting lugs at top column or floor beams

Are bolted-on lifting lugs an option?
