Placement of multiple roof top air handlers and cooling towers was scheduled. All units were staged and directionally marked for placement. Two of the pieces were staged incorrectly, but marked correctly. Confusion developed during placement and the units were flown back down for re-evaluation, then re-picked and landed. In spite of the re- evaluation the unit were placed 180 degrees off.
Improper staging and inadequate directional marking on helicopter lifted units.
Additional helicopter picks cost $2,000 and $2,700 for piping modifications.
During the Pre-lift meeting discuss properly staging equipment to be lifted and prominently display orientations on the units. Use visual management tools.
