Scaffolding

Our primary expertise is in delivering scaffolding. J.D. Belfield Enterprises utilizes the systems-rosette connecting style of scaffolding; one of the most advanced, sophisticated and complete modular systems on the world market. This style of scaffolding is erected with speed and efficiency resulting in cost savings through labor and scheduling. All components are engineered to lock onto the unique rosette; and the system is designed to minimize the number of pieces and keep all components standard and flexible.

 

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.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards Warehouse and Sports Museum:
Shell Revitalization

Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Project Scope & Results: This is a project that showed the vertical access flexibility of J.D. Belfield Enterprises as a combination of scaffolding and mast-climbing work platforms were employed in order to complete the replacement of the roofs and the repointing of the facades of both the Warehouse and the Legends Sports Museum. One of the keys to the successful completion of this project was J.D. Belfield Enterprise’s ability to mobilize enough equipment to access more than 1,500 linear feet of mast-climbers and scaffolding; for over 100,000 square feet of facades - while maintaining access/egress for all normal business operations within the Warehouse and the Museum. These protection requirements included both Ravens and Orioles' events that occurred during the construction phases. Multiple Mast-climbers, Systems Scaffold Work Platforms, Temporary Stair towers and Pedestrian & Entranceway Overhead Protection were successfully installed, maintained, relocated and finally removed without disturbing the on-going activities of Camden Yards.
