An industrial tramway manufacturer required two tower foundations for a new tramway in rugged mountain terrain. Traditional construction equipment could not reach the tower locations.

Crews and purpose-built limited access drill rigs were mobilized using helicopters, and the innovative approach resulted in minimal site disturbance.
