The Project: Condo Roof Replacement, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
When a condo requires a roof replacement 10-stories above the street, it’s no small undertaking.
The Situation: A high-rise project can be done two ways. One is to use the building’s service elevators for all the crew, materials, and equipment. The other is to use hydraulic hoists to take the materials up the outside of the building.
Which one causes less disruption for the client?
On this project, Anderson Contractors won the bid because they understood no condo owner wants that sort of disruption in their living space, the dust, and dirt of materials, not to mention the use of the service elevator, placing it out of commission for residents who may be moving things of their own.
Anderson Contractors had the means and equipment to handle the project from the outside. Once on site, they re-sheeted the exterior walls and used a crane and a hydraulic hoist to get the materials on and off the roof.
This project ensured the client:
- Had a mess-free experience, everything was kept to the exterior
- Switched out a less effective roofing material for TPO
- Experienced a quick and less disruptive roofing project by hiring a roofing contractor with expertise in working with cranes and hydraulic hoists
