Pinnacle scaffold Corp’s legacy of work with historic buildings continues with St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, NJ. The iconic structure that sits at 70 Maple Ave., Morristown, NJ 07960 was looking to do some masonry restoration to the 125 foot tall tower.
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is one of the most prominent architectural features in Morristown. It sits on a campus of two-plus acres and is comprised of three main buildings and two others: (1) the church (built in the years 1887-1907); (2) the rectory (built in 1897); and (3) the parish house (built in 1914). The campus also contains an adjacent recently renovated building and a two-family house on a separate but adjacent lot.
Pinnacle scaffolding was called in to provide complete access around the perimeter of the church’s main tower so crews could do Masonry restoration on the top portion.
TheTop of tower is 125′ high. Pinnacle was able to get crews to the top of tower with stairs and system scaffold while allowing full access to the entrance on the ground level.
The challenge with any historical structure is to get crews access while not damaging any of the aintique artifacts or stonework in the process. Most of the time these buildings need to have full access inside for parishiners too – so the utmost care is taken to provide protection and support around any entrances. Pinnacle scaffold specializes in just this type of scaffolding. We are proud to be working on such a unique building in Morristown.
