Background

East Coast Rigging (ECR) is a family-owned and operated company with a strong dedication to hard work, dependability and customer service. As a premier scaffold installation, rental and sales provider, ERC offers safe, quality installations to a wide variety of contractors. Because of their reputation for reliability and strict safety guidelines, ERC has been contractors’ top-choice scaffold provider for over 25 years.

Problem

East Coast Rigging had a customer tasked with repairing two 10-year-old multi-family complexes in Herndon, VA. Moisture had become a problem within the exterior walls of the buildings. To repair the damage caused by the moisture, they needed to install new interior insulation, a vapor barrier, and new siding. The crew had numerous obstacles to work around including pools, courtyards, pitched roofs and power lines. A swing stage was not cost-effective due to the lower height of the building. Additionally, a boom lift was not a great option due to high rental rates and site access limitations.

Solution

East Coast Rigging, being very knowledgeable in the scaffolding industry, knew that our PowerMast would be the most cost-effective access solution for this job. The setup was fast and easy, requiring a crew of only two workers to efficiently install the twin PowerMast systems. With limited access around the pools and landscaping, the team easily accessed the buildings by using PowerMast. Plus, they avoided the unpleasant look and lengthy, labor-intensive install and teardown of more traditional scaffolding.

Benefits

ReechCraft Territory Manager, Will Oliver, visited the jobsite to view the repair progress. He received a great amount of positive feedback regarding the ease of setup and use. Workers were impressed that the system was powered by a drill, making it very straightforward and simple to operate. Justice, a contractor on the site, said that PowerMast was the perfect solution inside the courtyards and was very efficient to use on the long exterior runs. Thanks to the Reechcraft PowerMast, this crew was able to complete the job safely, and in a timely manner!
