St Charles Borromeo

The St Charles Borromeo Church in Bensalem, Pa was completed in early spring of 2003.

This project included the design and erection of an advanced mobile scaffold system used to facilitate the demolition and construction of a new ceiling throughout the sanctuary. Over a five week period, the existing celotex tile and lathe system was removed and replaced with steel studs and Gypsum board panels. The project was completed while the sanctuary was in operation on weekends with the mobile scaffold system stored at the rear of the Church. With a height of 35 ft. to the ceiling peak, a major challenge was the safe handling of demolition and construction materials to complete the project.
