In July 2012 Coussens provided transport and cranes for the installation of an exhibit by artist Richard Wilson on the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, in which a coach teeters on the roof of the building.
Coussens’ Terex Demag AC120-1 was used for the final lift to lift the exhibit itself, into position, as part of a contract lift provided by Coussens. The exhibit, entitled ‘Hang On A Minute Lads, I’ve Got A Great Idea…’ is a re-creation of the final scene of the film ‘The Italian Job’, where a coach filled with gold is left balancing on the edge of a cliff.
