GBL provided an extensive fleet of Work Platforms, Beeche Mobile Boom Hoists, and long-reach, high capacity hoisting gantries in order to meet the tight schedule requirements of this curtainwall recladding / overcladding highrise project. Importantly, using equipment supported and suspended from the various roof setbacks allowed the building to remain fully occupied throughout the entire duration of the project.

Dual-boom gantries reached 30 feet over and beyond the sidewalk protection, to hoist curtainwall panel packages directly off their truck beds for delivery to the podium roof setbacks for unpackaging.  At the various roof setbacks, Work Platforms with front monorails were loaded to their maximum capacity of four panels, utilizing the Beeche Mobile Boom Hoists. Once a platform traveled to its working position at the beginning of the day, installation work would proceed. Pivoting T-Boom platforms provided safe worker access all the way to the building corners. At the “Top of House”, a 35 foot tall, continuous perimeter rooftrack system peeked above the top of the cavernous roof space at the parapet screen walls. This raised structure supported additional track-rolling boom hoists as well as the structural support frames from which the upper tower Work Platforms were suspended.
