Challenge

Setting the scene for a challenging task.


The auditorium seating area had a sloped floor, which the majority of conventional lifts would not function on, and also presented potential safety hazards. Even lifts that could function on the slope would pose the risk of leaking fluids that would penetrate the concrete and ruin the desired finish.

Solution

We brought the house UP.


To solve these challenges, and mitigate the risk with overheard work in this area, a scaffolding platform was utilized. The platform was assembled in place and allowed for over 7,000 SF of working area over 27’ above finish floor. This platform was enclosed 360 degrees around the elevated deck and had two separate stair towers with removable railing at designated locations to accommodate material hoisting. This allowed us to work safely and quickly without endangering workers or risking ruining the floor finish.

From the groundbreaking to the ribbon cutting, Carroll Daniel was part of the team while bringing expertise in project management, field supervision, and subcontractor coordination.”
