Pinnacle Scaffold builds temporary Press Boxes at the University of Delaware Stadium for the Fightin’ Blue Hens

 

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4355

EDIS came to Pinnacle Scaffold with a question.  How can we build temporary press boxes for the football season on the bleachers, across the field, while the new $60 million dollar stadium expansion/facelift is going on?  We have people calling the game, scouts, announcers, press and members from both teams who need to be able to conduct business as usual.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4421

The big guy, and honorary Mayor of Delaware, Tony P, looked around and then said, “On the bleachers, huh…?  No problem.  Let me handle that.”

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4396

The man who loves a challenge then said, “And we can put roofs over them and have observation glass installed to protect from the elements.”

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4354

Their response, “You can do that?”  “Absolutely,” said Tony P.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4353

Well, needless to say, they were thrilled and the resulting buildings are awesome.  But not so fast.  It wasn’t as easy as it looks.  Tony P had to devise a way to get these structures built ON TOP of the bleachers and that wouldn’t be easy.  He brought in the guys at Alternate Design Solutions to handle the engineering – making sure that the weight distribution would be correct on the stands so they could support everything.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4352

ADS did their calculations and recommendations and then sent those to EDIS and the University of Delaware for approval.  After a few back and forths to make sure the weight calculations were spot on – the approval came.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4404

The Pinnacle crew was off and running.  Some specialty steel would need to be added beneath the boxes themselves to distribute the load.  The Fightin’ Blue Hens would be in business for the entire season!

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4420

The other obvious challenge to building this out of scaffold was that each piece would have to be carried by hand up the bleachers and then put into place making it a labor intensive job.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4408

Pinnacle created the shell and the University of Delaware brought in someone to do the woodwork and interior because they had to bring in all of the necessary electric, video, audio and radio feeds necessary to make this a fully functioning press box.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4413

And look at how it turned out!  Each box is 14’ by 28’ and will keep business as usual as the Whitney Athletic Center comes to life on the other side of the field. (click here to read about the new athletic center)

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4412-1

These boxes will last the University through the season until the new improved addition is finished in the summer of 2020.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4360

And just as a side note: We added two stair towers on the opposite side for crews to access the new construction at Tubby Raymond Field.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-de-university-of-delaware-blue-hens-press-box4364

We were proud to help keep the Fightin’ Blue Hens up and running for the 2019-2020 football season. EDIS and the University of Delaware were pleased with the result.

As Crosby, Stills and Nash said in the song Déjà vu,
“If I had ever been here before
I would pro’bly know just what to do.
Hey, don’t you?”

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3583-copy

Pinnacle Scaffold does! That’s because we have.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3620

This is phase 3 of the total façade restoration of the Merion Building at 700 S. Henderson Rd, King of Prussia, PA.  Just like the other two sides, this one is in need of parapet restoration, masonry work and exterior cleaning. You can read about our first phase here.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3601

We provided crews with an awesome system scaffold that ran the entire front of the building.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3623-copy

We gave them a stair tower for access and a debris chute with ports at each elevation.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3575

The scaffold was decked in and debris netted on the top 3 levels where the work was being conducted.

You can see some of the parapet work in these photos.

Time, Money & Expertise, Hyatt Place Wilmington / Riverfront

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3655This was a job that came down to time and money – and if you think about it – aren’t all jobs really, at their core, about that?  Of course you want the best crew in the business and the best customer centric company to work with on a project like this but it really comes down to time and money for that expertise.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3673So when GGA Construction calculated it would be faster to use scaffold rather than high reaches to complete the exterior of this large job at the Hyatt Place Wilmington / Riverfront, they called Wilmington’s scaffold leader, Pinnacle Scaffold, to do the work.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3678At first, they thought the expense of scaffolding the entire side of this six story building might be prohibitive but once they calculated the many moves, days and sections using other methods they realized that with Pinnacle they actually saved time and money.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3649They realized that with scaffolding they could rock multiple trades simultaneously to do the work quickly and efficiently as opposed to one trade at a time with high reaches.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3664Pinnacle and their main man, “the honorary Mayor of Delaware”, Tony Pini, also designed a way to tie into the windows using compression ties instead of the traditional method of tying directly into the exterior of the building. This allowed the entire side of the façade to be open and accessible for the different crews to work uninhibited to get the job done as quickly as possible.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3661And like I said above, isn’t that what it’s all about?  It just so happens that Pinnacle has the best leader and crews in the business as well – so double win for this Hyatt Place Wilmington / Riverfront Hotel!

pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, hyatt place, DE, non union, open shop, scaffold rental, 3659Pinnacle Scaffold came in with system scaffold that was roughly 300’ long by 60’ high, decked in at every level to allow total access.  And once this side of the building was finished they dismantled and moved the scaffolding to the opposite side.  At the time of these photos we had scaffolding around the end as well – with a trash chute.

Pinnacle Scaffold erects a monster at the University of Delaware.

There’s really no other way to say it.  This job is big!  Look at the photos.  It’s over 1800 lineal feet of scaffolding encasing 143,000 gsf of new student residences at the University of Delaware in Newark.

Who was big enough to take this on?  Who was bold enough to create an access and working platform for multi-trades at every level at all times all around this structure?  Who could the GC rely on for constant changes, updates, and a moving target of issues from a multitude of vendors?

non-union-scaffolding-scaffold-pinnacle-scaffold-302-766-5322-open-shop-shoring-de-pa-nj-md-357

Only one man could pull this off – Mr. Anthony Pini!  Now, I have to say there were a ton of other people involved who helped make this a reality (his head tends to grow to Guy Smiley proportions when I pump him up).  But in all seriousness…

non-union-scaffolding-scaffold-pinnacle-scaffold-302-766-5322-shoring-open-shop-de-pa-nj-md-246

Pinnacle Scaffold was called in because they have the ability to move quickly, efficiently, and bring projects in on-time and under budget.

non-union-scaffolding-scaffold-pinnacle-scaffold-302-766-5322-open-shop-shoring-de-pa-nj-md-317

And truthfully, when there are multi-trades all over the scaffold each trying to get their time in to finish the job you want a man like Pini to handle the details and changes that all of these companies need to finish their parts.

non-union-scaffolding-scaffold-pinnacle-scaffold-302-766-5322-open-shop-shoring-de-pa-nj-md-282

But let’s stop blowing sunshine up the owner’s mighty derriere and focus on the incredible scaffolding all around this building.  Wow.

South Academy Street Residence Hall will provide 531 beds for first year students. Located directly north of Hartshorn Hall, the SARH will be the final component of the East Campus Housing Program and is scheduled to open in August 2017.

There is a lot going on!  This is a busy construction site and safety had to be of the utmost priority.  Each day over 200 workers descend upon this building to install windows, siding, brick, steel, run cranes, lifts, electrical, paint, and more.

non-union-scaffolding-scaffold-pinnacle-scaffold-302-766-5322-open-shop-shoring-de-pa-nj-md-289

Anthony Pini and Pinnacle were brought in because they knew how to design an intricate access plan around this huge building.  He knew how to get all of the clients just what they needed.  He kept everyone happy and kept the project on-time and within budget.

Some of the challenges that had to be over come included not just pleasing one client but 7-8 at all times from the GC to the subs, the window guys, the masons, the carpenters, electricians, everyone.

Scaffolding & Access at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Wayne, PA

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Pinnacle Scaffold was called to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Wayne, PA to provide masonry crews access all around this incredible house of worship.

5392-adj

Pinnacle is the go-to scaffold company when you have work with historic structures.  We pride ourselves in our ability to erect scaffolding without leaving a trace.

5360

Crews are repointing and replacing stones in the exterior walls (and then anchoring them to the interior walls for stability), as well as replacing coping stones and doing parapet replacement.

5351-adj

Pinnacle is providing them the access necessary to get the job done!

5388-adj

St. Mary’s Episcopal Church was completed and consecrated on Easter Day 1890.  Over time, the mortar wears out and the stones shift and crack, necessitating their periodic so repair/replacement.

5346-adj

We needed to gain the masonry crews complete access to the façade and roof area.  The biggest challenge was erecting the scaffold like a Christmas tree with different levels at different points, following the profile of the building.  Take a look at some of the pictures.  I’m going to walk you around the building… A visual tour – if you will.

5334-adj
5380-adj
5343-adj
5355-adj
5399-adj

As with all of our historic jobs, we take great pride in getting in and getting out without a trace.  You can see how we carefully use pressure mounts to lean against the walls and roof areas of the church.  We are also very cognizant of where we place the scaffold on the grounds.

5367-adj

We used system scaffold with several stair towers for access around the property.

5342-adj
5337-adj

Father Joseph Smith took a couple of informative videos showing some of the work being done.  You can see them here.

5393-adj

Here is a link to the Church’s web page where you can get more information.

5354-adj

I need to give a shout out to uber talented Miss KT for the use of her camera for the photographs in this blog.

5333-adj

If you need access of any kind, especially on a historic building, call Pinnacle Scaffold today at (302) 766-5322 and ask for Tony.  He will take good care of you.

This appropriate song from the band The Calling (also appropriate) fits for today’s musical interlude.

When the Main Line Spine Surgery Center needed access to the exterior and roof of their building at 700 S. Henderson Rd, King of Prussia, PA they called Pinnacle Scaffold. Their office provides comprehensive care for all typs of spine-related conditions and injuries – just a Pinnacle provides access for crews to repair all kinds of injuries and damage to buildings. Our skilled crews erected this beauty in no time so masonry and restoration crews could get busy assessing the damage to the façade. From all indications it looks like they were in need of parapet restoration, masonry repair, façade cleaning and window replacement. This system scaffold was >>>>> by >>>>>> and was wrapped with debris netting in certain parts of the building to contain any flotsam and jetsome. The back side features a nice stair tower and a debris chute for all of the trash to be sent down the waiting receptacle. Here’s a close up of how our guys tie-in the scaffolding to the masonry work of the building – providing one super stable and sturdy structure for workers.

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library Scaffolding & Renovations (Phase 2 & 3)

pinnacle scaffold, 302 766-5322, non union, scaffold, scaffolding, winterthur, 168

Phase 2 and 3 of the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library renovations are in full swing and Pinnacle Scaffold is proud, once again, to be providing the scaffolding and access to make them a reality.

25655091563_448e37505b_o

The real story here isn’t the massive scaffold job, that took 8 semi-truck loads of equipment, and allowed crews 100% access all around the Exhibition Building for renovations  – but it’s the agility and creativity of our scaffolders to erect this on such crazy and uneven terrain that includes a stream traveling right through the middle.

25655090433_a0852445f2_o

Pinnacle specializes in working on historic structures and providing access in tenuous situations.  Where others cower in fear and back down from the challenge, our guys thrive on their ability to devise new and creative ways to solve problems.

25652992164_2330cd5791_o

Just like when we erected the scaffolding at the main museum building – we had to do it with the utmost care and not leave a trace.  Mission accomplished.

Winterthur, pinnacle scaffold, 302 650-0520, non union, scaffold, scaffolding, 091

We also had to devise a way to span the massive 60 foot glass atrium so crews could gain access above it.  Done.

Winterthur, pinnacle scaffold, 302 650-0520, non union, scaffold, scaffolding, 074

So how did crews stabilize this giant scaffold system on mushy terrain on the edge and over a stream?

25652996884_6ca2fb2906_o

The answer is: Very Carefully.

Aww come on now.  Seriously?  I’m sorry, but I had to do it.  It’s true to a point.  We had to use secret shoring and scaffolding techniques to keep the scaffold from sinking into the mud.  On stable ground we would build this scaffold with the back leg standing on concrete or a more solid surface (like on the other sides of the building) but the outside leg was either in the soft mud or in the water so that wouldn’t work.  What to do?

25652997294_d2cbb099fb_o

Well, our brilliant leader, Anthony Pini, took one look at the situation and fired off a solution that would have stymied most builders.  Take 14 foot trusses and tie them into the outside leg of the scaffold and then run them across the stream and then secure both sides by shoring up the footers.  Bam!  Problem solved and scaffold steady as a rock.  If you look carefully, it’s really just just a backup system in case that back leg shifts at all; a safety net, if you like.

26191503851_7339106f57_o

It’s always nice when the boss actually comes up with an idea (every now and then). 😉  And this one just happened to be a good one!

26191503391_cec1ce5e8d_o

And if you look at the pics you will see how they accomplished it.

26257770305_9fde27536b_o

Even though this part of the museum was built in 1992 is still needed renovations.  Crews needed to get at every inch of the giant structure so we decked in every level, and gave them 360 degree access.  Renovations included stucco repair around the exterior, roof and gutter repair, window repair and replacement and paint and metal work.

You can see we also provided scaffold around each entrance of this structure.

25984915560_b3d1e2c1cb_o

We also installed stair towers – and a special walkway on one side to give crews access over the landscape.

26165330132_40735e84b7_o

The third phase is over at the Dorrance Gallery building where we had to install a material hoist because crews needed to get to windows, siding, gutters, chimneys and more and lift heavy things.

25655072683_a830b200e9_o

25652984204_e5a24a2a07_o

From this angle you can see we were encasing the entire scaffold with debris netting.

25984914710_bd65db3fcb_o

I just happened to come by when they were halfway done.  But trust me – it will look just like the scaffolding did up at the main building.

25655081923_a89609468f_o

In fact, I can only imagine that this building will look as stunning as the main building does now after the renovations and repairs.

If you get a chance please visit the Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library it’s really something very special.

And from the critically acclaimed movie about John Dupont…

Some history on the Exhibition Building:

The Exhibition Building is part of the program of the world’s foremost museum of American decorative arts to open its collection to a wider audience. The New Exhibition Building is connected to the entrance of the museum with a large, conservatory-like pavilion, echoing two conservatories elsewhere at Winterthur. The rest of the addition of 45,000 square feet consists of stair and entry areas and two floors of flexible exhibition space. The addition runs across a shallow glen and bridges a small stream, terminating the long, downhill facade of the existing museum.
