By Hannah Sundermeyer10 April 2023
Florida-based Dynamics Group and Beyel Brothers removed, transported and installed 16 classroom buildings from two elementary schools to an Orange County high school during the five days of spring break.
“We are glad to be able to support the continued growth of the 8th-largest school district in the nation,” said Mahendra Setaram, president, Dynamics Group Inc.
Beyel Brothers used a Demag 245-ton capacity AC 220-5 to lift the classrooms onto trucks, and a 225-ton capacity Grove GMK 5225 to lift them off the trailers onto their new locations. Both cranes used a custom rigging configuration with multiple slings and spreader bars.
The 16 temporary classroom buildings were disassembled and transported in 32 loads from Avalon Elementary and Orange County Virtual School in Orlando to Apopka High School in Apopka, FL. Mirroring the continued population growth in central Florida, between September and March already total enrollment has increased by over 3,300 students in the Orange County Public School system.
“We are happy to be able to play a part in the growth of the school system to better serve teachers, students and their families,” said Joe Beyel, president of Beyel Brothers.
