Steel Erection

Our team of ironworkers at Dixie Erectors assist with the erection of steel structures during the new construction phase and the dismantling of old structures.  Our cranes and operators also assist in setting steel columns, beams/girders and decking.


Our crane operators are highly skilled in the placement and removal of heating and air conditioning units on a variety of commercial and/or residential buildings any size and shape, and on typical terrains.  From apartment homes to high rises, if your construction or maintenance needs require the installation or removal of large units, we are equipped to set up and navigate the job with speed and safety.


Our contracts of this nature are similar in scope to the HVAC industry, but also include millwrights and machinery movers.  Often working at hospitals, schools, and public facilities, the scope of our work ranges from removal, replacement, or installation of MRI’s, to a variety of industrial equipment being placed into or removed from the inside of a warehouse or factory.


Our operators perform a wide variety of tasks at a number of facilities, including but not limited to paper mills, chemical plants, food processing facilities, agriculture and mining.  Quite often we assist with the installation of tanks, conveyance systems, underground utilities, and above ground storage systems, to name a few.


We are often called upon during the new construction phase of larger projects to assist with the lifting and placement of generators, trusses, commercial HVAC systems, concrete and other typically used building supplies.  


We work closely with the construction aggregate industry, providing preventive maintenance as well as new construction and installations, both at the rock quarries as well as the concrete and asphalt plant positioned at those quarries.  This includes, but is not limited to, rock crushers, storage facilities and conveyance systems.

Tree Work

Our operators assist with the trimming and removal of trees on residential properties, as well as commercial properties on occasion.  We also work with arborists that are planting new trees or transplanting existing trees.  We take extra caution with these jobs, as the crane is most often set up in landscaped areas or fragile residential driveways.  


Our operators really enjoy this type of work, as it allows us a behind-the-scenes preview of well-known movies and events.  It helps that there is generally food available as well!


One of our less conspicuous, but more necessary, types of jobs involves setting up the various components of cell towers, billboards, aerial wiring equipment and cables, and general commercial communications construction.
