So after reading a number of posts/threads about CCU, and to always bid it in person I decided, naw I’m good with the picture I got of 1 window looking out. I can bid it from that rather than spending $50 in gas and 3.5 hours in drive…
The second thing I was thinking would be a “piece of cake” well I wasn’t really thinking so it just flew over my head, this is 4 stories and there’s silicon on the far edges of the outside panes that I can’t reach…
Fella’s, Vets in the industry, people of knowledge and wisdom, and people who want to say “I told you so” what would you suggest I do?
they’ve already accpeted the bid and I went down close to a 15 hour day yesterday with my employee.
Do OSHA laws apply to the owner of a business?
Are there door anchors I could hook up to each room to stand on the inside ledge to get the fixed exterior pane?
I don’t have highrise gear, and I don’t know the first thing about highrise, alot like I didn’t know what I was getting myself into here…
How many of you have handled 40 ft ladders? IDK what the height of the hotel is. Do they make ladders taller than that?
I guess I could also rent a boom lift, but I’ve never used one before… That scares me to know the mess that could come of it if something went wrong. The closest thing to a boom lift I’ve used is a 20 ft scissor lift, they’re pretty much the same thing right? lol
I’m unsure how to get the high exterior panes, friendly or foe, FIRE away!
All I will say on the OSHA issue is use your common sense if your thinking of something that you think may not be the safest don’t do it.
Looks like a shorter four story and a 40 should reach that likely under the window use a standoff spotter at the bottom. This is a construction site anything OSHA wise will be noticed on-site construction guys know proper use of equipment and safety
Scissor lifts not going to work on that. You could get by with a 60 ft boom but they are not the same to operate @Frozone I’m assuming you didn’t make the bid high enough to to pay for one? This may be one of the jobs you just take the bite and rent one. Maybe you can talk to the contact to see if they’ll split the price?
You can pole that from the inside if you have to I don’t see why not. Are the Windows all banged up? If so rent the lift. If not like them. Otherwise, I wouldn’t ladder that. Talk about unsafe…
I just looked up the horizontal reach of a boom lift. I don’t think the horizontal reach is far enough?
they’ve got a pool and stuff going in on one side so I’d have to reach it from the pavement (it hasn’t been paved yet.) Do you guys think horizontal rach would be far enough? I can get exact measurements on how far it would be from the pavement to the building.
