Stunning Facelift on Pennsylvania Avenue!

Normally, you’d expect to this kind of quality work from Dr. Lee on Rodeo Drive, in Beverly Hills but it’s right here in Wilmington, DE courtesy of Dr. Anthony Pini and Pinnacle Scaffold.

This wasn’t just a little nip and tuck for 2300 Pennsylvania Avenue but a full-blown facelift or exterior restoration worthy of any housewives of NJ, DC or BH. I know what you’re thinking.

It didn’t just address the loose neck-skin and sagging jowls of this aging building – it repaired the dermis, stretched the skin back behind the ears and pulled a new tight facade that just screams to the traffic passing by: LOOK AT ME!!!

And isn’t that point of a facelift?  To breathe new life into a perfectly good structure?  Of course it is.  And that’s just what Bancroft Construction wanted for this 51 year old building when they hired Pinnacle Scaffold.

Let’s face it, you get what you pay for – and when you are talking about your face or facade why on earth wouldn’t you hire the best?  As Tony P says, “Rent it right. Right product, right service, right price, RIGHT NOW!”  And I have to agree.  

Before we get into the details of the complete renovation, I have to mention a really cool aspect of this scaffold.  Pinnacle performed one of the slickest scaffold moves out there to preserve the natural look of the landscaping surrounding the building.

The entire scaffold was erected around the two enormous trees on the side.  They are hundreds of years old and they had to make sure they weren’t damaged at all.  Check out how the crew built around the large limbs.  Most people would have just chopped off the limbs.  Eeek.  You can’t just “chop off things” that make you look good.  Ask any good plastic surgeon.

Our crew did a brilliant job of letting the beautiful branches poke through the netting and specifically built the system scaffold around these tree parts.  It’s just another way Pinnacle goes above and beyond for the client.

And because we decked out the scaffolding at each level to allow multiple trades to work simultaneously we were able to capture what goes into prepping and finishing a job like this in various stages. Check out these photos and just how great the new exterior is going to look!

And finally, there’s the ramp at the top of the stair tower. It had to span the gap and give enough room to act as a landing platform for material while not taking up much room.  Again, our guys did a great job.

Now for some details of this facelift. We scaffolded and netted ¾ of the building so that multiple crews and trades could work simultaneously so Bancroft could remain on schedule and within budget.  We used system scaffold all the way around for ease of assembly. There were over 3,000 planks used, an awesome stair tower for access, and the best erectors money could buy.

What was being done with this facelift, you ask.  New windows, repairing stone veneer, caulking, coating, skimming, tightening up, removing wrinkles, blemishes, and sharpening the look.

This was a tough project with a quick and immediate turnaround and Bancroft knew to hire Pinnacle to get the job done right.  

As Tony P, the honorary mayor and soon to be presidential candidate says, Rent it Right, son.  Rent it right!

There’s no need to go to Beverly Hills if you need a facelift, access, scaffold, or a mayoral candidate just call Tony P, at (302) 766-5322 or visit www.pinnaclescaffold.com today and rent it right!

Today’s musical number just fits what’s going on with this project.  Enjoy.

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.

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.

Pinnacle scaffold is proud to be serving as the scaffolding provider for the renovation of the monument Soldiers & Sailor monument erected in 1871.  The memorial that sits in the triangle formed by Delaware Ave., W. 14th, and N. Broom street is dedicated to Soldiers and Sailors who gave their lives in defense of their country in the Civil War.

The large marble column is from the Pennsylvania Bank Building, Philadelphia that was razed in 1868.  The monument itself was threatened by the sheriff after it’s unveiling because a construction debt was outstanding.  Eli Crozier, came to the rescue with the necessary funds to save it.  A thank you to him is engraved in the stone on the back of the monument.

Pinnacle is starting its tour of duty with this monument and then will continue to all of the other monuments in the city of Wilmington.  (More posts to come).pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding, sales, rental, service, de, pa, nj, nyc, fl, md
Pinnacle’s scaffolding provides access to 100% of the monument so restoration crews can get to every nook and cranny.  Pinnacle also devised an ingenious ladder system that goes up through the center of the scaffold.  They hid the ladder in the center so local children wouldn’t climb up and either damage the statue or injure themselves.

PSC did a very unique shoring system called a tilt up wall bracing.   As you can see from the photos this is not your normal shoring system.  It’s used specifically when the walls are really tall – some as high as 40’-50’.  It’s designed to keep the walls in place until the ceiling is put on.  This system had to be used to accommodate the enormous height of the IMAX screen.

This is the city’s first major movie theater in several decades.  With 14 digital auditoriums in addition to the 300-seat, eye-popping 75′-by-45′ IMAX theater, it’s set to anchor the new Riverfront complex.

Pinnacle Scaffold emergency services team comes to the rescue at Kmart – on a holiday weekend!

Late on a Thursday night while all of the other scaffold and shoring companies are tucked neatly in their beds and dreaming of how they will sleep in late and watch Good Morning America in the AM – Pinnacle is out working.
wall bracing, shoring, scaffold, scaffolding, full service, DE, PA, NJ, NYCAt 8:00 pm Pinnacle’s emergency services team got the phone call about a wall collapsing at the Kmart at the Tri-State Mall in Claymont, DE.

Pinnacle’s owner and guru, Anthony Pini, was on the job site in 10 MINUTES!  Yes, he literally leaped out of his hot tub, slicked back his hair, threw on some clothes, and hit the streets running.  He was at the KMART meeting with the store manager about solutions ten minutes later.

KMart’s restoration company called from Hayward, CA giving Pinnacle Scaffold full approval to come up with a solution.  This happens more than you would think.  Clients that are based out of state or even out of the country need a trustworthy company to literally handle all aspects of a repair job.  In time sensitive situations, like this, it’s easier to find a reputable company that can be their eyes and ears – and as a full-service scaffolding, shoring and restoration company Pinnacle has done this many times for clients.

The west side of the building sits directly next to a  busy section of road.  Cars and pedestrians are constantly passing by this part of the building.  A wall collapse could have proven catastrophic.  As you can see from the photos, this was a fairly large section.
scaffold, scaffolding, shoring, masonry, DE, PA, NJ, NYC  scaffold, scaffolding, shoring, masonry, DE, PA, NJ, NYC
The brick veneer was collapsing and it needed to be shored up immediately until repairs could be done.

The very next morning at 7:00 AM, Pinnacle had a structural engineer (from Alternate Design Solutions) onsite at the KMART to write up a report and create engineering drawings for the solution.

“The blacktop is not an ideal anchor for the braces so we all put our heads together and thought outside of the box,” said Pinnacle’s Anthony Pini.  The innovative solution they came up with was to anchor the leg-end of the braces to large cement blocks or barriers for support.  Once the plan was presented to the client and the approval was given – Pinnacle’s crew got to work.

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

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.

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.
