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.

Pinnacle also provided a canopy (overhead protection) at the entrance so people could get in and out of the building safely.

pinnacle-scaffold-scaffolding-scaffold-merian-building-de-non-union-open-shop-scaffold-rental-main-line-kop-3632

It’s our goal to make sure the client is happy with our work and also that the businesses remain open and have normal access. Mission accomplished.

Pinnacle scaffold begins its tour of duty with Soldiers and Sailors Monument renovation, Wilmington, DE.

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.

Finally, the monument was ensconced in debris netting.  We will provide some photographs when the restoration is complete.  The marble, eagle and placards should look as good as new once finished.

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.
scaffold, scaffolding, shoring, masonry, DE, PA, NJ, NYC  scaffold, scaffolding, shoring, masonry, DE, PA, NJ, NYC
“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.

On a Holiday weekend when most people are BBQ’ing brats and hot dogs, PSC and its crew was helping KMART prevent a disaster.

Now that the immediate danger is out of the way, the next step is to remove the brick façade, locate the cause of the trouble, and then put a new brick exterior back up.

Pinnacle Scaffold’s client appreciation water fun day

In a move sure to go down in history as one of the finest moments on water, Pinnacle Scaffold took out one of its clients (Alternate Design Solutions) for client appreciation day.

The plan was simple.  Entertain some great clients.  Zip around on some cool toys.  Drink some frosty beverages.  And even have a fishing contest.Alternate Design Solutions, non union, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, DE, PA, NJ, Philadelphia

But things didn’t quite go as planned.  Sure, the first toy up was the brand new Jetovator. (Akin to taming a full blast fire hose) and that was a burner.  But little did anyone know just how much energy it took to ride this contraption.
scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Pinnacle scaffold, DE, PA, NJ,
Working harder than coal miners to tame this wile water beast, the guys got mighty tired and hungry.  Ah, the fatal flaw was found in otherwise perfect plan.  Pini forgot the food.  Now most times Pini and Pinnacle prepare for everything, except for on this fine occasion, where he only brought 3 Snickers and small bag of Doritos.  He remembered the beverages but didn’t count on these manly men to get so hungry so fast.
pinnacle scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rentals, non union scaffold

So what started off as an exceptional day on the Delaware river soon became mayhem when the starving crew ravaged the boat for anything to eat.  Consuming the candy bars in exactly thirty seconds and then finding no more human food, Matt busted out the live fishing bait, consisting of worms, grubs, maggots, shrimp and minnows and began feeding it to everyone.  He failed to read the fine print (imported from China in 2009).  No one cared.  It was food and they were starving.

Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Pinnacle scaffold  Pinnacle scaffold, scaffolding rental, scaffold rental  Pinnace Scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental
They consumed almost all of the outdated bait that was stored in the galley.  This seemed to calm everyone’s hunger pangs.  There was a collective sigh of relief.  After about five minutes everything settled down.  The colors seemed brighter, their moods got lighter and their senses seemed to be more acute.  So after chugging a few adult beverages to wash the rotting fish taste, the day could continue.

Pini captained the boat to a remote section of river where fishing rods were taken out and the very last of the bait was put to good use.

Let the contest begin.  And there could only be one winner.

Pinnacle scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, DE, PA, NJ
Pauly D defeated all anglers with his pull of a giant Tigerfish!  Goliath Tigerfish in Delaware you say?  Incredible indeed.  Thank goodness no one was injured bringing in this bad boy. No net needed.  Pauly D just shoved his fist down the monster’s gullet (as if he was hillbilly hand fishing) and hoisted him on board.  They would ride him later.

Leave it to Pinnacle to find the most isolated spot on the river to catch fish, when low-and-behold, from out of nowhere, sped the one and only Australian Super Model, Elle Macpherson on water skis!
Pinnacle scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rentals, non union
With much grace, skill, and dynamite looks, she blasted past the boat leaving the men wet, awestruck and dumbfounded in her wake.

Not to be outdone Matt said, “Pini, throw me that water ski and hit the gas!”
Into the brine he went, carving like the super slalom champ he’d always wanted to be…
non union scaffold rental, scaffolding, pinnacle scaffold
But she was too fast and it was too late.  Like some apparition, Super Model Elle Macpherson was gone.  For a 47 year-old gal, she not only looked good, but could really put the pedal to the metal.  Where did she go?  Where did she come from?  As the men stood contemplating the mystery before them – another skiing beauty sped by in her wake.

pinnacle scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rentals, DE, PA, NJ, NYC, non union
2 supermodels, on water skis in one day?  In Delaware?  This WAS the place to be.  Or had the rotten fish heads made them see things?   Pinnacle is in the erection business (just see their T-Shirts) and let’s just say things were getting “up air”.
non union scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, (302) 650-0520
“Into the bat boat boys,” shouted Jimmy.  “We’ll catch them.  I’ve got a secret weapon,” he said, as he took the wheel of Pinnacle’s new toy – the Amphibi-car.  “It might not look fast but it’s got 450 horses under the hood.  Sea horses, that is.   “Yah” he screamed and cracked the whip, with Paul in tow behind the speedy car boat.
non union scaffold, scaffolding rental, scaffold rental, DE, PA, NJ, NYC
Unfortunately, after a few minutes it became apparent that no one had fed the sea horses (and they had eaten all of the fishing bait) and they just petered out leaving the guys to swim back to the boat.

In a last-ditch effort to appease the client and find these two water skiing beauties, Pini decided to bust out the big guns.  Top Gun, literally.  “If we can’t find them in this – we must surely be hallucinating,” he screamed, as he rolled forward the throttle and gave new meaning to the word Jet Skiing.
non union scaffold rental, scaffolding rentals, PA, DE, NJ, NYC
Unfortunately, that was the last time anyone saw the boys from Alternate Design Solutions.  We can only assume that they found Elle Macpherson and her friend and are living it up on some tropical island somewhere.  We hope.  We wish.

Like this post for a chance to win your very own Client appreciation day with Pinnacle.  If you dare!  One winner will be drawn at random to have fun with the Pinnacle crew.

Princeton hired PSC because they knew we could accommodate some very specific requests.  And on this job, we designed a system scaffold with an access way off to the right side to keep the least amount of legs on the ground and out of the very unique foliage at the base of the building.
