National Monuments

Jefferson Memorial

Washington, D.C.

Scaffold Resource provided extensive assistance to the restoration efforts of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington D.C in order to ensure the preservation of this historical landmark. We provided easy access to the memorial for restoration experts through the installation of:

  • Access Scaffold across 100% of the memorial dome complete with walk-boards, a tarp compatible cable system, and a tie-off system.
  • Movable Access Scaffold providing underside roof access in the Colonnade and access to all of the perimeter Columns in the Colonnade.
  • A Runway Material Access from the road edge to a Material Hoist allowing for heavy material and equipment transfer on and off the memorial.
  • Movable Gantry System allowing for the removal and reinstallation of 1,200lb roof stones to accommodate rehabilitation of the Portico’s roof system.
  • Access Scaffold and Work Platforms providing access to the exterior edges of the Portico and interior barrel vault. As well as an Overhead Protection System that allows for the pubic to pass through the construction area and into the main chamber.

Lincoln Memorial

Washington, D.C.

Scaffold Resource furnished & installed a scaffold access system for the assessment and restoration of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. In doing so, we provided visual and working access to all surfaces without any of our scaffold contacting this priceless national treasure.

Historical Restoration

U.S. Supreme Court

Washington, D.C.

Scaffold Resource furnished and installed a scaffold access system for the assessment and restoration of the U.S Supreme Court in Washington D.C. In doing so, we provided visual and working access to all surfaces without any mechanical tie-in to the structure in order to maintain this priceless national treasure.

U.S. Capitol Building

Washington, D.C.

In doing so, we provided visual and working access to all surfaces without any mechanical tie-in to the structure in order to maintain this priceless national treasure.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Washington, D.C.

Just across the street from the White House in Washington, DC, Scaffold Resource provided all the exterior access and hoisting requirements to support a full restoration of this historic façade and roof replacement. The requirements for this project along with some tough logistics required many of our products lines to be utilized for this work. The scope of work consisted of over 50,000 sq. ft. of scaffold façade access, 500+ Linear Ft. of Pedestrian Overhead Protection with parapets & lighting for signage, 2500# Material Only Hoist & Runway to the roof, Custom Monorail System for balustrade reconstruction, temporary construction stairs, trash chute, rolling towers, & cable hoist to support material conveyance.

Miami Freedom Tower

Miami, Florida

Scaffold Resource provided vertical access to the exterior tower of the Iconic Freedom Tower in Miami Florida for the repair of the roof, façade, and replacement of windows. The access scaffold system stood 150’ in elevation and stretched an additional 110’ to the top of the tower. Our team also installed a swing staging off scaffold system to complete work on 4 sides of tower below the 150’ elevation. This work was challenged by very limited space for storage of required material and limited footprint for the scaffold base, requiring a design to fit on existing ledges with cantilevers to provide 100% access to all surfaces.

Bridges

Chesapeake Bay Bridge

Chesapeake Bay, Maryland

Scaffold Resource furnished and installed a scaffold/containment structure for the 323′ tall suspension tower on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in Annapolis, Maryland. Our team of expert engineers and builders overcame a few unique challenges with this project including taking delivery of our equipment via barge, installing scaffold over a 37’ wide active roadway, and ensuring our structure could withstand 100 mph wind gusts. Our success ensured that the contractor team could provide lead paint abatement, blasting and painting to help prolong the life of this modern marvel.

Mid-Hudson Bridge

Poughkeepsie, New York

Ben Franklin Bridge

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Scaffold Resource furnished and installed a scaffold/containment structure for the 367′ tall suspension tower on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge connecting Philadelphia to New Jersey. Our team of expert engineers and builders overcame a few unique challenges with this project including taking delivery of our equipment via barge, installing scaffold over an 85’ wide active roadway, and ensuring our structure could withstand 100 mph wind gusts. Our success ensured that the contractor team could provide lead paint abatement, blasting and painting to help prolong the life of this modern marvel.

Churches

Washington D.C. Temple

Kensington, Maryland

Scaffold Resource furnished & installed a complete access scaffold system to support the restoration of the Iconic LDS Washington D.C. Temple spires. Our team strategically designed and executed a plan to crane materials to the roof and build and takedown scaffold on each spire until all spires were restored. We ensured that restoration experts had full access to all exterior stone surfaces for restoration and repairs. Concurrently, our team designed and installed an intricate interior access scaffold system and temporary shoring to assist the restoration team on interior work.

First Baptist Church

Winston Salem, North Carolina

Scaffold Resource designed and provided an exterior access scaffold system to support the restoration of the church steeple. This system consisted of temporary load distribution mats at grade with high capacity shoring towers that supported four 75’ long transfer beams spanning the full width of the church. This design allowed us to full scaffold the church steeple without any vertical loading to the existing structure and prevented any reshoring work into the finished space.

Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church

Baltimore, Maryland

Scaffold Resource assisted in the reconstruction of the Legendary Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church in Baltimore, MD after its steeple was struck by lightning causing it to catch fire. Our team threaded needle beams through structural openings to create base to build up a scaffold access approximately 80 ft above ground. We integrated a material-only lift tie to the elevated scaffold structure to feed materials up for repairs and provided a trash chute, temporary stair tower and overhead protection to ensure the rest of the church maintained functional operation.
