Upper Moreland High School Swimming Pool Deck and Rolling Towers
Now, this is the second way to scaffold a swimming pool so crews can get to the inside ceiling area for work, renovation or additions.
The first way, as we showed you, in this article at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, was to scaffold the entire pool and then continue the scaffolding right up until just beneath the ceiling where we added a deck or dance floor.
This way can be used when there are only sections of the ceiling that need to be addressed. We scaffold the entire pool area and then deck it in using steel plank and ¾” plywood to create a ground level floor area. Picture a regular gym floor, if you will.
Then crews can use rolling towers to access only those areas that need work.
This particular swimming pool deck was roughly 42’ wide by 75’ long. It provides a super stable, ground level, working deck or platform.
You can see the combination of system scaffold, trusses, steel plank and wood decking that went into this build.
The toughest challenge with a job like this is balancing out the transition or slope of the pool from the 4’6” shallow end to the 10’ 2” deep end.
Our Superior Scaffold crew did an awesome job of making this work deck absolutely level.
The one piece of gear that we don’t mention very often is our rolling towers. We rent them all the time and they really come in handy on all kinds of jobs from painting, to HVAC, to electrical, you name it. The convenient part of our rolling towers on this job was that the crew would position them wherever they needed to do the work. These are a more industrial version of our Decorator Scaffold (Baker scaffold or painters scaffold).
These just happen to be 8’ X 8’ X 12’, system scaffold, rolling towers that crews are using to reach areas of the ceiling.
You can see in this pic that they have removed sections of the old HVAC and will be replacing that as well as all of the mechanicals.
It’s just another way that Superior Scaffold provides access to hard to reach places.
If you should need access, whether it’s inside the ceiling above a swimming pool or hanging 40 stories up on the exterior of a building, give us a call today at (215) 743-2200 today or visit www.superiorscaffold.com. Ask for Pat, he’ll take care of you.
This isn’t quite like going to the shore but it’s still a fun little ditty.
