Brakewell fabricated this house lift for the National Science Foundation. We shipped the first completed base to Greenland back in 2009. Its purpose was to aid in the study of global warming. The house lift was designed to be able to lift the building up above the snow and ice that is constantly rising. As a result, each column is expandable allowing the building to remain in its location for a longer period of time. However, the time eventually comes when the ice and snow drift levels rise enough to completely cover the extended columns. When that happens the building is lifted off the old base and moved onto a new one, and the process begins again. We fabricated 2 of these structures along with the deck outriggers, a steel sled for transport and a steel cover to be used for gasoline storage.
