This particular location in West Windsor, NJ used to be a large Barnes and Noble store – and now it’s being converted into a new Bahama Breeze. The 26-year-old MarketFair shopping center is in the middle of design changes and a rebirth that promises new stores and lots of food.
Superior Scaffold provided the scaffolding and shoring to support the giant steel girders overhead. You can see the enormous beams that had to be supported while crews cut them down.
They left the ridge beam but the lower 4 had to go (for a new addition).
But getting to those girders wasn’t an easy feat. You can see a large utility closet that would have to be used to hold 1 of our 4X4 shoring towers.
And to boot, we had to assemble them all around the spider’s web of electrical conduit and machinery.
Even on the outside of the utility room there wasn’t much room for our shoring, scaffolding or contractors to reach the upper steel beams.
These are all good shots to show you just what our estimators look at when they are determining the best solution for a scaffolding problem.
In total, we had 4 shoring towers. 1 in the mechanical room, 1 outside the mechanical and then 2 outside.
You can see our 4X4 hi load frames and shoring towers.
But when we did shore up all 4 of those giant beams, girders, rafters – the sparks really began to fly!
From the 1973 WARNER BROS RECORDS album TRES HOMBRES – ZZ TOP with Master of Sparks.
Crews used a scissor lift to get high enough to cut the giant girders.
The job went off without a hitch and we were proud to be a part of the MarketFair redevelopment project.
Here are some news clips.
And here are a few clips that will help you remember that Summer Bahama breeze on a cold day.
And for Pat and Tony P – this should bring back some sweet memories
