Multiple trades utilize fifteen swing stages, thirty hoists and more
Seattle, WA, February 23, 2018 – Spider is supplying general contractor Haselden Construction with a complete suspended motorized access solution during the construction of the 12 - story Laurel Cherry Creek luxury condominium in Denver, Colorado.
Fifteen Spider swing stages ranging in length from thirteen to forty feet and equipped with thirty brand new SC1000 traction hoists are enabling safe, efficient access to the façade for various phases of construction including dry walling, waterproofing, window installation, curtain walling and masonry.
Spider is also providing all of the essential rigging equipment, including beams, counterweights, gantries and parapet clamps. Together with its local BrandSafway partner, Spider expertly completed two phases of rigging, first from the eighth story roof level and, as construction progressed, from the twelfth story rooftop. Additionally, Spider conducted three sessions of OSHA-certified Competent Person Training to various subcontractor crews to ensure safe operation of the suspended scaffolding equipment.
BrandSafway constructed several ground-based scaffold systems and stair towers for additional access points on site.
“Throughout the project, Spider has offered ideas and solutions to save time and maximize work space without compromising safety,” commented Nate Holst, Superintendent with Haselden Construction. “For example, the implementation of parapet clamps cleared the work area of towers and allowed us to start waterproofing 2-3 weeks earlier than anticipated.”
“We appreciate the responsiveness we receive from Spider’s team,” continued Holst. “When adjustments are needed, a Spider expert is typically on site within a few hours, which keeps our crews productive and the work running smoothly.”
The projected value of this 10-month rental project for the Spider and Safway Denver team is approximately $370,000, and their equipment is expected to be on site until summer 2018.
