Case Studies

Industry: Office Space
Challenge - Solution:

The exterior of the Terraces North and South office buildings presented monumental rigging hurdles for which our clients turned to Goodman to overcome. Because of the complex architectural elements at the building, there were no simple or common rigging solutions. The building has multiple exterior exposed concrete beams which protrude from the building’s exterior skin. In an effort to overcome this challenge, we used skyhooks to hang on exposed open concrete beams where sunshields blocked our access. In addition, parapet clamps were used on all other open beams which were all tied back to mounts on rooftop structure and other beams. Because of the variable dimensions of the beams and incremental staging, assembly and disassembly was conducted frequently, as no dimensions were the same. We also utilized a cantilevered walking board to paint the structure adjacent to parking deck and building which protruded over a body of water. This mechanism was tied back to the bridge structure itself.

On the interior portion, we were required to assemble platform staging to re-paint ceilings which were approximately 160 feet in the air in an exposed atrium. Because there were only 3 definable points of rigging availability to hang our staging and because we were constructing a square platform, we utilized a cantilevered beam look out for which we tied back by looping cables over and under pedestrian bridging. The exposed portion of the elevator shafts also required rigging an unconventional swing stage through the same access point as the elevator cables themselves.
