According to Larry Buxton, owner of Buxton Electric, the 7,000-pound generator will serve as The Reunion Building’s primary power backup for fire suppression and critical systems.

Getting the giant generator over the ten-story building presented an interesting challenge Buxton’s team quickly solved.

Buxton Electric tapped Bennett Steel of Sapulpa to use its heavy crane to lift the generator.

Content Creators was contacted by Buxton to capture the generator lift from every angle.

The team at Content Creators deployed a two-person drone team, two camera operators and a still photographer to capture the lift.

The goal of the video from the beginning according to Buxton was to capture the years of relationships coming together to tackle the big generator lift.

The entire lift operation went flawlessly.

“To us it was just apart of our day. Part of our work week. Part of what we do,” said  Buxton, owner of Buxton Electric.
