Winterthur museum, garden and library renovation

Almost 60 years ago, collector and horticulturist Henry Francis du Pont
(1880–1969) opened his childhood home, Winterthur, to the public. Today, Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is the premier museum of American decorative arts, with an unparalleled collection of nearly 90,000 objects made or used in America between about 1640 and 1860. The collection is displayed in the magnificent 175-room house, much as it was when the du Pont family lived here, as well as in permanent and changing exhibition galleries.

Winterthur Museum, garden & library is set amidst a 1,000-acre preserve of rolling meadows and woodlands. Designed by Henry Francis Du Pont, its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among America’s best, with magnificent specimen plantings and massed displays of color.

The exterior of the museum is undergoing a massive renovation. Crews needed to get to windows, siding, gutters, chimneys and more without disturbing a single part of it – and Pinnacle Scaffold was called in to provide access all the way up.


See the video for the real perspective on the size and scope of this job.

Pinnacle was hired because of our experience working with historic structures. This project had several major challenges to overcome. The first was that this enormous job (Approximately 1300 lineal feet of scaffolding) had to be completely self-supported and not tied into the building at all. That’s why you see so many support towers all the way around.

Look closely at the photos and you will see the feet resting on top of wood then plastic leaning into the building. This design had to be completely engineered to support not only the weight of the scaffold but of the wind pressure added by the debris netting. We used compression ties where appropriate and push ties where needed, all to protect the integrity of this historic building.

The next challenge was how to span the 60’ gap over the top of the glass atrium.

Winterthur, pinnacle scaffold, 302 650-0520, non union, scaffold, scaffolding,127

The next challenge was how to span the 60’ gap over the top of the glass atrium. That was done by having two of the largest trusses ever built (by Etobicoke) locked together to create one giant 60’ span able to handle the weight load.

The next challenge was how to span the 60’ gap over the top of the glass atrium.   The next challenge was how to span the 60’ gap over the top of the glass atrium.

There are two levels of 2 X 60’ trusses over the atrium (again, see the photos). And Pinnacle smartly put debris netting beneath each level over the atrium just in case something were to slip off it would be stopped by the netting.

The next challenge was erecting the scaffold so not to disrupt the landscaping, gardens, or flowers. (See the photos of the base and of where the feet were placed.) That factor alone was an enormous challenge but put them all together and you get one tough scaffold job that Pinnacle was more than ready to take on.

This job will encase the entire building in scaffolding and debris netting and then jump to another adjoining building.

Scaffolding was chosen over aerial work platforms because of the sheer amount of work needed to be done on the entire outside of the building. It was also the least invasive method to the grounds and the structure itself. The length of time was another factor. The first phase of the renovation will take at least 9 months to complete.

Constructed in 1927, St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Wilmington, DE, has withstood almost everything mother nature could throw at her.

But the recent earthquake on the east coast damaged some of the masonry and 4 spires at the top of the clock tower. You can see in the pictures that several of the limestone spires actually broke off.

The back chimney was also almost ready to collapse. 9 pieces of marble actually fell to the ground during the earthquake. Luckily, no one was injured. Also, as a result of the quake, there needed to be a lot of repointing done to the upper section (The stone is called Baxter Station marble and is very hard to find.)

Pinnacle Scaffold was called in because of our experience with historic buildings. The mission was to erect a scaffold that would allow workers to reach the delicate parts of the towers while keeping the church open for business as usual and not damaging any part of the landmark building.

One of the coolest things to see is the awesome stair tower and lift assembly that was erected to get crews and equipment to the top.

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.

Mt. Vernon Mill renovation, Baltimore, MD – scaffolding update

pinnacle scaffold, non union scaffold, non union scaffolding, rental, sales, service, DE, MD, PA, NJ, DCThis is by far the biggest scaffold job Pinnacle Scaffold has done.  As part of phase 2 we now have scaffolding on EVERY building in the Mt. Vernon Mill river valley basin.   It’s a pretty impressive site to see Baltimore’s historic river basin decked out in Pinnacle Scaffold.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you recall, this entire complex is being converted into a mixed use combination of office, retail. apartments, restaurants and shops.  Not only did this scaffolding have to hold up to the rigorous weather changes commonly associated with this area of MD but it had to survive the wind, weather and water of hurricane Sandy…   Because we build for the worst conditions imaginable our scaffolding came through the storm with flying colors.

There are some very cool areas we had to address with this latest round of scaffolding.   The first are the giant trusses that we had to incorporate to the scaffolding beneath the 100 yard walkway in between the two massive structures.  You can see how crews had to get beneath, above, and on the sides of the walkway for renovations.

pinnacle scaffold, non union scaffold, non union scaffolding, rental, sales, service, DE, MD, PA, NJ, DC  pinnacle scaffold, non union scaffold, non union scaffolding, rental, sales, service, DE, MD, PA, NJ, DC

The next big challenge was the stream itself.  Many areas had to avoid dipping into the water completely and had to be held by specially manufactured supports that attached to the buildings 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.

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.
