The sister skyscraper to Harnwell and Harrison House is getting a much needed facelift after forty years of weathering the elements. (You can read all about the Harwell renovation job we did here last year on our blog.)

This uniquely shaped building at 3901 Locust Walk is a 25-story apartment complex that houses roughly 820 residents and is part of the university’s student housing.

Superior Scaffold was called in to give masonry restoration crews total access around the entire structure.

We did so by providing ten swing stages or suspended scaffold platforms on three sides of the building, and also by installing one large twin mast climber (MC-3615)…

and two single master climber units (MC-10) on the remaining side where there were recessed areas.

Here is a close up photo of what is being repaired all over the exterior of the building.

Over time, water got into small cracks in the concrete that caused the rebar to rust and expand and then crack and blow out the cement.

For that reason, crews cut out the old, disintegrating pieces of concrete and rusted rebar and replaced it with new.

After the repairs were made they repainted and resealed the concrete.

We also provided this overhead protection system, or canopy, at the front entrance to keep pedestrians safe as they entered and exited the building.

This job was rocked out on a deadline beginning when the students moved out and completed by the time they moved back in a few months later!

I will get a photo of the completed job, but until then, here’s a shot of the finished sister building, the Harnwell House. You can see what amazing work they did; this building looks like new.
