Installing the New Burke crane

August 3, 2016
Burke Museum

The tower crane that will lift all building materials for the New Burke was recently installed!

Watch this quick time-lapse video of the crane coming together. The crane stands 39 meters tall and features a massive 70-meter-long jib that reaches across the New Burke construction site. 


Similar to the “inside-out” vision for the New Burke experience, we hope to provide a glimpse into the two-year construction of the New Burke Museum. Visit the New Burke Project page for answers to common questions about the project.
