Project Narrative

Scaffold Resource furnished and installed rigging systems to assist Schindler Elevator with escalator installation. The rigging systems involved spanning beams over 40′ between scaffold towers and suspending trolley beams over 55′ long with a capacity of over 15,000 lbs at each rigging point.

Potomac Yard station is a Washington Metro Station that is under construction in Alexandria, VA. The station will be operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), serving both the Blue and Yellow Lines.

The station is located at Alexandria’s planned 7.5-million-square-foot (700,000 m2) Potomac Yard Mixed Use Development bounded by Richmond Highway (U.S. Route 1) and George Washington Parkway. Potomac Yard is the second infill station to be added to the Washington Metro system, after NoMa-Gallaudet U in 2004.

Potomac Yard station was constructed on the site of Potomac Yard, a former railroad freight yard.
