We get this call quite a bit. And even though it’s a smaller job, we wanted to show you what can be done when there doesn’t not seem to be an easy solution.
The good people at Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy were installing a new HVAC unit and couldn’t figure out how to make the tie-in at the top safely using their ladders and scissor lifts, so they called Superior Scaffold.
Superior estimator and creative guru, Pat McAndrew, quickly devised a solution that put system scaffolding on either side of the unit and then added an access ladder and 2 decks for workers on the top so they could span the section across the apex of the HVAC unit. Crews were then able to safely tap into the duct work up top and then down into the HVAC unit itself.
It looks simple, but trust us, it takes an expert designer to devise a safe and simple solution like this.
Call Superior Scaffold (215) 743-2200 when you need creative scaffolding solutions.
When St. Mary’s Ukranian Church in Mcadoo, PA needed a scaffolding company to erect scaffold for painters to restore the exterior luster of their beloved church – they turned to Superior Scaffold. Our experience with historic buildings, churches and structures has made us the tri-state leader in the scaffolding industry.
The contractor wanted a stair tower to access the scaffold and a nice sized storage deck. And to eliminate ascending the scaffolding from the ground each time, Superior constructed a special walkway across the roof.
You will see the photos below but I think this Youtube video gives the best visual description.
At the front of the video you will see the newly painted surfaces. Also, about halfway through you will see the scaffold going up and the freshly painted gold domes. It’s quite impressive looking.
