Pinnacle Scaffold at the University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, MD

Pinnacle Scaffold (PSC) and the University of Maryland Medical Center teamed up to provide scaffolding solutions that would allow workers to complete caulking and gutter work on a scaffold that was built 100 feet in the air.

The UMMC had some very specific requests and turned to PSC for solutions.  The main challenge was that the scaffolding had to be erected on top of a section of roof at the main hospital.  Not only were specific weight loads an issue but business as usual protocol had to be met.  As Maryland’s top Acute-Care hospital it had to remain open for the 6500 employees and patients while the scaffold was being built.Pinnacle Scaffold, Non Union, Scaffold, Scaffolding, Rental, Sales, Service,  (306) 650-0520
PSC turned to Alternate Design Solutions for drawings and specifications to give PSC and UMMC the proper design and weight specs for the roof to support the scaffold and workers while completing the job.  “It was all about access and pleasing both the hospital and the contractors,” said owner, Anthony Pini, “and I think we accomplished both.”
PSC came up with a lightweight system (fully engineered) sitting 100 feet up in the air, on an existing roof that allowed full access to the façade and roof.Pinnacle Scaffold, Non Union, Scaffold, Scaffolding, Rental, Sales, Service, (306) 650-0520

Pinnacle Scaffold overcomes challenges at Mt. Vernon Mill Redevelopment, Baltimore, MD

PSC (Pinnacle Scaffold) is proud to be a part of this $42 Million redevelopment of the century old Mt.Vernon Mill in Baltimore’s Jones Falls Valley that runs along the winding stretch of land between downtown and the Hampden neighborhood.  The 4 massive brick buildings straddle the Jones Falls stream along a third of a mile stretch of the Jones Falls.

Construction of Mill No. 1 will be an adaptive reuse of the 19th Century cotton mill buildings into a mixed-use combination of office, retail, 93 apartments and two restaurants.

PSC beat out 3 or 4 large competitors for this giant revitalization project because the developer and general contractor trusted our ability to provide a budget conscious project with “out of the box solutions” to incredibly difficult scaffold challenges.

The entire job was a giant obstacle/challenge from the steep driveways and access points to the over the water scaffolding necessary to complete the work.  It’s safe to say that this is one of PSC’s greatest achievements to date.

Just look at the pictures and you can see the challenges that we had to overcome providing top-notch work with incredible built-in safety precautions.
First on the list are the special brackets that we had to manufacture for the job to hold the cantilevered trusses out and over the water that in turn would support the entire scaffold ABOVE the water so workers could get access to the façade and roof for restoration, repointing and rebuilding.

Third, the developer Terra Nova Ventures plans to transform this site with a strong focus on the environment.  So PSC took a careful approach to meet Baltimore green building standards.

Soon the century old brick and stone cotton mill be brought into the 21st century.  The rehabilitation of the Mt. Vernon Mill project has begun and PSC is proud to be a part of it.
