Masonry crews were doing a complete restoration project and needed decked in levels to get at every inch of the exterior.

These photos were taken while crews were erecting the scaffold but we did add debris netting to the entire project.

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.

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.

You can see the vast amount of system scaffold all around this job all to give a multitude of trades and craftsmen access to the entire façade at all times.

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.

The chimney scaffold was also very difficult to layout and safely give crews access but PSC did it.

Even the building’s layout of a zig-zag pattern in the front was a challenge.

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.

Scaffolding Delaware Landmarks

Non union, scaffold, scaffolding, rental, rentals, rent, rents, construction, historic buildings, inspection, art, design, sales, DE, MD, PA, NJ, 3

Pinnacle continues its march through the historic district and landmarks in Delaware. (see our post on the Josephine Fountain) We are proud to help our hometown renovate and refurbish these incredible statues and edifices. We pride ourselves in being the very best at getting crews access to historic structures without leaving a trace – and this statue is no different.

Located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, DE (Rodney Square) stands a statue to Caesar Rodney, an American lawyer, politician, signer of the Declaration of Independence and President of Delaware during most of the American Revolution.  The monument commemorates Rodney’s ride from Dover to Philadelphia on July 1-2, 1776 to cast a tie-breaking vote for the Delaware delegation, and thus ensuring Delaware’s support of the Declaration of Independence.

And around that statue is scaffolding erected by Pinnacle Scaffold, also from Delaware, to help crews get access to the entire statue for renovations. The statue was created by James E. Kelly and stands in the front of the square.

Non union, scaffold, scaffolding, rental, rentals, rent, rents, construction, historic buildings, inspection, art, design, sales, DE, MD, PA, NJ, 1

Our crew took the utmost care to design, deliver, erect scaffolding that would allow renovation crews the ability to refurbish the base, (repointing, cleaning), shining and polishing the statue and bringing the monument back to its former glory.

We also added debris netting for containment while the guys did their work.

As I’ve said before, we love working on historic projects and are proud to lend our support to this prestigious one.  If you need access, scaffolding, or lifts call Tony P at Pinnacle Scaffold today (302) 766-5322 or visit www.pinnaclescaffold.com to see more of our work.

More on Rodney square: Rodney Square presently includes green space with landscaped borders, paved, perimeter walkways, cast stone walls, stairs and balustrades, and 12 bronze lanterns. Two concrete fountains flanking the west steps serve as a memorial to William Poole (1853-1918), a descendant of an early Quaker family and former head of the Wilmington Fountain Society.

Pinnacle Scaffold provides support for renovation of Josephine Fountain

24599521362_f2fa8f3e82_o

The well-known feature at Brandywine Park in Wilmington, DE has been taken out of operation and is undergoing a major restoration project.

24089130074_f603bc2523_o

The Josephine Fountain, which was dedicated in 1933 and named after the late wife of Attorney Joshua Ernest Smith, has sustained significant structural damage after severely cold weather in the winter months.

brandywineparkcherryblossomsandfountain

Pinnacle Scaffold was brought in to aid in the restoration process because of our flawless track record dealing with historic buildings, statues and artifacts. It takes a scaffolding company like Pinnacle to make sure the project is done right and everything remains the way we found it.

24090462033_474dd5317e_o

Here you can see the scaffolding we erected to get the renovation crew to their designated elevation. We used system scaffold and decked it in on 3 levels (where the crew will dismantle the statue). We took the utmost care while assembling to make sure nothing was harmed.
24691092866_726f278c15_o

The park brought in surveyors who discovered it needed critical restoration work.

24090462183_a113f853a4_o

The work will require the statue and fountain to be disassembled and temporarily located off-site for the work the commence. It should be completed by summer of 2017 when it will be brought back to it’s original glory.

24717311325_c83741b5e8_o

We love working on historic objects and are proud to lend our support to this prestigious project.  If you need access, scaffold or lifts call Tony at Pinnacle Scaffold today (302) 766-5322 or visit www.pinnaclescaffold.com.

24090462653_34c897b95d_o

And since this beauty is going to be down for a little while we thought we’d play this little ditty for ya.

 

And here’s a bit of history for you: Ernest Smith, who donated the nearby cherry trees in 1929, gave the fountain as a memorial to his wife, Josephine Tatnall Smith, following her death in 1931. After the fountain’s dedication in 1933, the entire area was designated “Josephine Gardens.”

Holy Ghost Prep School – scaffolding, stairtower, trash chute, debris netting

22447555373_4e69224f90_o
Today’s challenge was to erect a scaffold, stair tower, trash chute and debris netting on the clock tower at the Holy Ghost Preparatory School, built in 1897, without disturbing the masonry or upsetting the landscaping.23042735886_8172fc3525_oLuckily Pinnacle Scaffold specializes in working with historic structures. (see our webpage for examples)  We were honored to work with the good people at Holy Ghost Prep to help them repair the parapet and spires on the clock tower of the main building.  The school is a private Catholic college preparatory school for young men in Cornwells Heights, Bensalem, Pennsylvania within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It was founded in 1897 by the Spiritan missionaries.22447559823_ce19a364cb_oCrews needed access to the roof to remove and repair spires and replace the damaged parapet wall.  We used system scaffold and decked in the top two levels to give them a solid work platform.testpostcard_2012_frontHere you can see what the tower, spires, and parapet normally look like.23079966891_86aff57b4e_o
We built an intricate stair tower for crews to gain access and then fenced it in for added protection.

22676488989_b8dd900e82_o  22447558033_650f0463bf_o
They also needed a trash chute from the top of the roof down to the dumpster on the ground level. 23055163292_9622752557_oHere you can see the access needed to get to the crumbling parapet walls.  It also shows where the spires used to be.  They will all be put back up again once everything is repaired.23055163052_216347db03_oCrews are replacing and repairing the stones and masonry work around the parapet.23055162192_82c7607678_o
Time and the elements will take a toll on the masonry work.  Every decade or two they need some touch up. This is the base of one of the spires that is being repaired.

23068776735_7587959bbf_o  23055159792_a942ec7438_o
Here you can the access we provided all the around the parapet.  And in the second shot you can see the debris netting we installed for added protection.22650404177_947f3c8541_o
This is the side of the building where we staged our gear and the masonry crews accessed the job site.  We wanted to limit the amount of wear on the landscaping and this access driveway was the perfect solution.  Our goal is to leave every job just as we found it.23042736656_17ff4df0b1_oWe were honored to have helped the Holy Ghost Prep School repair their parapet.  If you need access to hard to reach places or need scaffolding call (302) 766-5322 and ask for Tony P.  Or you can log on to www.pinnaclescaffold.com to see more of our work.

There are certain jobs that scream – LOOK AT ME and there are ones that kind of creep up on you – like this job at 113 E.

It’s right on the busy section of town where the college students roam. From the front you can see a gorgeous custom-built overhead protection system that was put into place to keep the pedestrians safe along the sidewalk and the businesses open during façade restoration.  But from the side you see… (Scroll to bottom for video of the job)

Let’s start with the canopy first.  Pinnacle is a master of crafting functional yet attractive overhead protection systems for their clients. Safety for pedestrians is our main concern while the construction, renovation or masonry work goes on overhead.

And this system canopy was no different. It allowed the Stone Balloon Ale House and all of the other businesses out front to remain open while façade work goes on around the building.

This custom sized canopy protects the patrons on the patio, the tenants as they go about their daily routine and the pedestrians who pass by. And best of all it looks great like it could have been designed into the original architecture. Okay – maybe not that good.

And then you have the “creep” factor on the rest of this job. It just kind of creeps up on you but behind the front of the building lays a very large scaffolding job.

Hidden back there is a 60’ tall X 200’ long (800 lineal foot) scaffold that will allow restoration and masonry crews complete access to each floor and every inch of the façade.

This 6 story system scaffold sits on the ground next to the walkway that spans between the two buildings. It’s a very busy complex and area with the University of Delaware students traveling to and fro.

The entire scaffold will be wrapped in debris netting to further protect the pedestrians and tenants.

The job is being done in phases so as one section finishes crews will move the scaffolding around to the next section. And that’s a lot of scaffolding.

So the next time you’re a bopping around town and you see a cool overhead protection system out front of an establishment you might want to peek around the side to see if there is anything else going on. It might just surprise you.

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.

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)

Hard work, dedication & scaffolding at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church

Pinnacle Scaffold provides scaffolding to the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Chuch at 808 N. Broom St., in Wilmington, DE.

I had to post this because on their website they describe the Greek Community this way:

“The Greek Community in Wilmington came together like most other ethnic groups around the country. What brought them to Wilmington was the promise of the opportunity that a growing city could offer. The early Greek pioneers in Wilmington were not afraid of work. They accepted just about every type of work. But, once they established themselves, they set about forming associations and a “Greek” school for their children, and their church, what we now call Holy Trinity.”

And this really struck a chord with us at Pinnacle. By being early pioneers in the business and not being afraid to work and take almost any job to establish a great reputation in a growing region has been our mantra. We can only hope to achieve a modicum of the success that the Greek Community has.

We were pleased to lend our support on this prestigious project. We erected a system scaffold complete with debris netting so crews could do repair work to the top portion of the masonry wall. The key here was to leave one set of doors accessible so they could remain open during the construction.

We specialize in working on historic buildings and structures and this was no different. We always take great care in and around the project we are working on. Feel free to visit www.pinnaclescaffold.com and see some of our work. You can call (302) 766-5322 to get an estimate on your next project.

Market St. to provide both overhead protection and a new guard rail system on the roof.Non union, scaffold, scaffolding, rental, rentals, rent, rents, construction, historic buildings, inspection, art, design, sales, DE, MD, PA, NJ, (302) 650-0520, pinnacle scaffold, repointing, masonry, shoring, subcontractor, GC, open shop
This isn’t just an ordinary guard rail either – it’s actually the first of it’s kind – with a clamp that grabs the top of the parapet wall and allows us to use system scaffold to provide a guard rail on the top of the parapet.Non union, scaffold, scaffolding, rental, rentals, rent, rents, construction, historic buildings, inspection, art, design, sales, DE, MD, PA, NJ, (302) 650-0520, pinnacle scaffold, repointing, masonry, shoring, subcontractor, GC, open shopThis new system is different than the old slab grabber that clamps from the side; this new crabber clamp does the job by mounting on the top of the slab.

The canopy was engineered to hold multiple disciplines on top allowing access to the façade.

This building was a former store front that housed 4 businesses. It’s being converted into 46 one bedroom apartments, three studios and three two bedroom units. After the reconstruction of three floors and the addition of a fourth, the 47,000-square-foot building is to reopen in June 2015. The $7.5 million project is being built by Buccini/Pollin.
