Brand: R&R Scaffolding, LTD
Project Type: Multiple - Single Source Vendor
30 Hudson Yards is a 1,264 foot tall business and retail building in mid-town developed by Related Companies in collaboration with architect Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. To clean and maintain the building's facades, given its unique geometry, R&R Scaffolding Ltd was selected to provide five separate systems for the mixed-use tower. Two monorail systems, in conjunction with a mobile davit system used with standard davits, facilitate the cleaning of the lower portion, underside, and facades of the Observation Deck while three track-mounted Building Maintenance Units cover the remainder of the building. With outreaches as great as 141 feet, each BMU is located on a different level and each allow the basket to reach all areas of the facade. R&R also outfitted one of the BMUs with a pantographic mast feature to best facilitate the parking of the large "crane-type" units.
