Forever 21 asked if we could add shoring without removing the scaffolding.  So we came up with a solution...

Seneca Niagara Casino Hanging Work Platform

This was an enormous multipoint suspended platform job. What this project entails is getting crews up underneath the ceiling while the casino remains open for business as usual so they can get the new HVAC and mechanicals installed. The solution came in the form of what is called a multi-point suspended scaffold. It’s not only wide, but stable enough to hold equipment, rolling towers, HVAC piping, etc. These giant work platforms actually hang from chains from the arched trusses at the ceiling. It’s netted in so nothing can fall off of the sides and its sturdy enough to support just about...
