Built in 1934, Our Lady of Grace Church is constructed in the Romanesque style.
Many times churches provide difficult access conditions. Central used a combination of pipe scaffolding, swing-stage scaffolding and a boom-lift in order to access 100% of the church wall areas.
An articulated lift was used to access the lantern.
Pipe scaffold and swing stages were used to access the majority of the facades.
Nearly 75 years after its construction, the brick and limestone mortar joints at Our Lady of Grace church were in much need of repair. Central was engaged to repair the failed mortar joints by completely grinding and tuckpointing all brick and limestone masonry. One of the biggest challenges with this project, as with most churches, was the access to each exterior façade – including the 12-sided lantern at the center of the roof. Central utilized a combination of swing-stage scaffolds, built-up pipe scaffolding and man-lifts to provide access.
