The Quiet Beatle
In these uncertain and trying times, we at Superior Scaffold Services are doing everything possible to insure the safest and most effective way to erect your scaffold job.
We follow all of the ever-changing CDC, OSHA, and GBCA safety recommendations and pass each certification so that we can provide you the safest, up to date solutions.
Alas, the world is a-changin’. So, I thought to myself, how could I do my part to keep everyone safe in these troubled times. And then, BAM! It hit me.
The best thing I could do is blog about jobs that took place BEFORE COVID19! Woo Hoo. Let’s party like it’s 2019!
Back in the day when you could carpool to work – 3 across a bench seat all talking and breathing the same air. Back when you could ask your co-worker for a swig off of their water bottle and not worry about dropping dead fourteen days later. And back in the day when you would work in the 100 degree heat sans mask, face shield and PPE.
Yes, those were the good ole’ days. Remember when you could borrow someone’s wrench without having to wash your hands afterwards (and the wrench too)? Or you could stand side-by-side and work in tandem. Heck, you used to be able to ride 7 men deep in one of our fancy transport platforms.
So here goes. How about this job at 1500 Locust. We’ve got some great swings, with corner sections, high above a brilliant canopy at different elevations over train station and store entrances. The Mara crew is doing a great restoration on this building. Now, I know you guys think I’m some sort of incredible genius, able to take amazing photos and then look at them and deduce exactly what the job is about. Okay, I am. Ha.
But in reality, I need to get the inside scoop from the estimator so I can accurately tell the story. Otherwise, you get blogs like this. (spoiler alert).
Anyway, I did what I always do and that’s to ask our brilliant salesman/estimator for info about the job.
This job belonged to the “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian. Most of you know him as the talkative one at Superior Scaffold. He loves to attend corporate events, particularly GBCA functions and Blue Book meet and greets. He’s always standing by the door, first to shake hands and welcome new guests. And when you talk swings, look out, he just won’t shut up. (Wait, this IS Bob Sarkisian we are talking about, right?)
Just kidding. He’s more like the “quiet Beatle”, George Harrison. It wouldn’t be the band without him. He doesn’t say much but when he does it’s usually a gold record.
His knowledge of suspended scaffolds and his ability to design innovative scaffold solutions is unparalleled but getting that info out of him is another story. Here’s how it went when I asked about the job:
Bob: “We did the canopy. Mara hung the swings.”
Me: “And?” I enquired.
Bob: “That’s about it.”
Me: “Any challenges, issues, special equipment?”
Bob: “Nah. Pretty straight forward.”
And there you have it, people. Brilliant! Capacious. Complete.
So, with that, we are done. Put a fork in it. Tip your wait staff. You all can see everything you need from the photos. Thanks for stopping by.
Okay, in all seriousness, he’s really incredible at what he does. His jobs are always top-notch and some of the most creative solutions out there. You will get the best, guaranteed. Just don’t be the marketing guy asking for details.
