Lesson Learned/Best Practice

During the rigging of the bathroom pods. JED noticed that the spreader bar made it difficult for riggers to adjust landing in roof access. Depending on how the pod would be picked the spreader bar made the overall width larger than the pod itself.  An adjustable spreader bar would have helped for a smoother transition down the roof access hole on to level 5.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

The solution is to have an adjustable spreader bar and straps to help with rigging of prefab bathroom pods.
