Job Description:

This very demanding project involves making extensive masonry repairs to various elements of the building. One portion of the work was done design/build and Integrated prepared a conditions assessment report along with conducting field investigations of the problem areas. Some of the challenges faced included effectively dissembling 400 pound coping stones and demolishing foot and a half thick parapet walls on the 13th floor. Integrated achieved this work using a combination of swing stage scaffolding and specialized hydraulic lifting devices. Always working closely with the Client and Architect, Integrated has sought to address additional necessary work items while eliminating concern in others, the trade off resulting in minimal cost increase to the Client. We anticipant completion of this project 4 months ahead of schedule.
