Riggers and Millwrights

Riggers and Millwrights

Top rigging, dismantling and demolition contractors like R. Baker & Son rely on the extensive knowledge, skill, and experience of riggers and millwrights.  So what, exactly, are millwrights and riggers, and what do they do? 

Millwright:
A millwright is a tradesperson who installs, maintains and repairs stationary industrial machinery and mechanical equipment by interpreting blueprints and schematics, constructing foundations, performing layouts, and assembling parts to perfect working order. Millwrights must possess a combination of skills and knowledge that includes steel fabrication, welding, machining, electronics, and fluid mechanics. They are trained through apprenticeship programs that combine classroom education with on-the-job training.  Most apprenticeships last four years and may include an Associate degree. 

Rigger:
A journeyman rigger is a tradesperson who specializes in lifting, moving, and placing extremely large or heavy loads, machinery, and objects using specialized equipment.  Riggers are responsible for staging loads and determining their sizes and weights; building or assembling jibs, derricks, cranes, booms, and other components; setting up rigging gear, cables, pulleys, and other tackle; erecting structural steel and concrete panels, etc.; and maintaining rigging equipment.  Rigging is learned through apprenticeship.
