High-rise projects can encompass everything from condominiums to office buildings and industrial structures. One of the biggest challenges to any high-rise repair project is
securing access to work areas. Swing stages are generally the best option, as they allow you to concentrate access only on the areas that need repair. However, this type of rigging might not
be feasible or efficient on some types of structures. In which case, scaffolding or mast climbing work platforms are erected over the entire structure to access work areas.
The planning and sequencing of the work also is a major factor as projects often have 10 to 20 different work tasks being performed at one time requiring careful planning and execution.
The scope of work varies but can include tasks such as shoring, caulking, waterproofing, grinding, chipping, blasting, forming, and pouring occurring simultaneously.

Below is our most recent Help Center posting regarding 40-year recertifications in the State of Florida.
Florida 40-Year Building Recertifications
Did you know that according to the Florida Building Code a building must undergo a "Required Building Safety Inspection"
when it turns 40 years old?
Even if you did a complete interior demolition and renovation of your building, you are still not exempt from the 40 year
Building Safety Program. Only if your entire building had been demolished would the inspection be waived. The city does
not send out an inspector to your property.
