Our rigging team consists of NYC licensed Master Riggers authorized to hoist any weight inside or outside any structure in New York City. As one of the most experienced derrick contractors in the city, we can complete your project with some of the most knowledgeable staff in the industry.


Derricks are especially useful for high rise rigging, jobs that cover a long period of time, or jobs when the impact to the street/pedestrian traffic is a concern. Here at Budco, we own several derricks of different sizes and capacities to fit your needs.

Our derricks have been mounted on the tops of countless buildings in New York. Whether we are rigging a 30 ton generator to the top of a building off Wall Street or doing a turnkey Chiller Plant change out in a Midtown office building, we have the equipment to get your job done.

Our structural steel division consists of talented steel erectors and certified welders. Our projects range from major railroad and building renovations to the installation of overhead cranes and hoisting systems. This also gives us the ability to bundle structural support steel or dunnage steel with the rigging of the equipment, providing a cost savings to the client.
