Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish – Wahoo’s, Swings, Overhead Protection System & Canopy Extravaganza
I love it when a client takes something that might not really belong at their location and makes it their own.
That’s just what the good people at Wahoo’s on Chestnut Street did. Life gave them tilapia and they turned it into tuna.
Look at how they added their own decorative touches.
Now, this wasn’t a walk in the park for our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, either. Watts Restoration was doing a total revamp of the exterior of building at 3180 Chestnut St. and needed a way to keep the pedestrians and the customers at the outdoor dining area safe while they worked high above on the many suspended scaffold rigs.
A 200 foot long canopy down the sidewalk did the trick for the pedestrian traffic.
That was built using system scaffold with steel and aluminum beams, overhead lighting and debris panels.
The real challenge was the outdoor dining area. This required something out of the ordinary. Bob sat down with Watts and the restaurant owner, ate his taco, looked around… and then devised a system scaffold roughly 50’ X 50’ and 14’ high that would cover the entire dining area.
The challenge was how cover the entire area and allow customers to eat outside during the restoration process. He used trusses, system scaffold, steel beams and the longest aluminum beams we had – and voilà.
The most creative part came in the form of tying the scaffold down so it could withstand high winds. To do that, he used giant cement weight blocks (or dead man) and then boxed them in with scaffold and then put netting around them so customers wouldn’t even notice. Take a closer look at this photo.
And then the client put giant banners on the guardrail at the top to give it their own touch.
Mighty creative solutions on both accounts if I do say so myself.

And I just couldn’t resist throwing this in as a bonus video.
