Scaffolding/Access at Mt. Vernon Place Washington Monument:

Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Project Scope & Results: J.D. Belfield Enterprises is the "prime" scaffolding contractor who installed the vertical access required for interior and exterior renovations to the Mt. Vernon Place in Baltimore. It is a total turn-key operation which includes stamped drawings designs, scaffold wok deck installation, temporary stair towers, a personnel hoist, proper usage training, maintenance and inspections, and dismantling upon completion. The scaffolding and personnel hoist provide access to all levels from grade to the top of George Washington's head and took about 8 weeks to install.

The Monument has been closed to the public since 2010 after it was deemed unsafe due to excessive water damage. The restoration is a multi-million dollar project that will take a total of 13-16 months for completion with an expectation to be finished by July 2015 for the Bi-Centennial celebration. Located in the prestigious Mt. Vernon neighborhood in downtown Baltimore, the job has had many "eyes" and on-lookers on a daily basis as the work is being performed. The structure was the first architectural monument built in honor of George Washington. Construction began in 1815 and was completed by 1829. The 178-foot column was constructed of white marble and provides excellent views of the city once you have climbed the 228 steps to the very top.
