Pinnacle Scaffold is providing mast climbers and overhead protection for the renovation of the AIG, Alico (now MetLife) Building at 600 N. King street in Wilmington, DE.
The building is in the middle of a major renovation including a new lobby, elevators, mechanical and system upgrades as well as a major façade improvements – and that’s where Pinnacle comes in.
We are providing 3 twin mast climbers that will work on all 4 sides of the building.They are renovating in phases so the mast climbers will move to opposite sides of the building once the work on the current side is complete. Crews are cleaning, re-caulking and replacing windows and metal panels.
Using mast climbers can be a good, cost effective alternative to traditional scaffolding, especially when working from the ground up and multiple trips are needed.
These twin mast climbing units run at about 35 feet per minute.
On the surface this looks like a typical mast climber job but it’s far from it. What you don’t see are the shoring towers beneath each mast climber base platform to distribute the weight of the base units and towers down through the 4 story parking garage that sits underneath the structure.
A big shout out to Ron and John at Alternate Design Solutions who engineered the grillage plans using shoring towers and steel beams to disperse the weight of the mast climbers up above. There is a shoring tower on each floor of the parking garage below. (I will add pics when I get a chance)
Pinnacle also provided overhead protection systems on the north and south sides of the building for customer access to the high rise while the façade renovation takes place.
These canopies use system scaffold and are wrapped in debris netting for added protection.
This will be a 4-6 month renovation project working with Wohlsen construction. PSC is proud to be working with them and the other companies on this project.
600 N. King Street is ideally situated in the heart of downtown Wilmington.
It is just blocks from the Wilmington Amtrak Station, various Riverfront attractions and the New Castle County Courthouse.
It features an on-site future café and covered parking beneath the building.
