Coring holes into the outside top corners of Denver's tallest building, more than 700 feet above the busy sidewalks and streets of downtown Denver.
This work could only be performed from the outside of the building, requiring us to work from a window washer scaffold hanging from the top of the building.
Special drilling fluid had to be used to keep from equipment from freezing and so that ice did not form and fall onto pedestrians and vehicles below.
Extreme caution had to be used so that no tools or cores fell onto the sidewalks and streets below.
The pictures show the iconic cash register building behind and below us, the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building, the City & County building, & the Denver Mint are also shown from our work area high above, another photo shows a view of our driller with the entire Denver Pavilions complex below him. These photos highlight the challenges of this project, they also highlight the dedication and capabilities of our employees.
All work was performed without any closures below and without any disruptions to occupants inside.
As is typical, the project was successful and made to look easy.
