This temporary roof project involved a rolling Keder XL roof for skylight replacement, access Comfort Stair towers, and an interior area platform. The structure required an 85 km per hour wind rating and it needed to roll to allow light into the building as work was completed. The project was successfully completed in November of… Read more »
For the YVR Airport Miller Road Re-Roofing project, we installed over 150,000 sq. ft. of 110’ clear span Keder XL roof system. The Keder roof was installed in such a way so as to not touch the ground in high traffic areas and to not touch the new roof underneath. More than 85,000 sq. ft…. Read more »
In 2018, we installed two identical Keder Roof Systems at the Vancouver International Airport with stair access, netting and debris chute with an 85km wind rating throughout the structure. Vertical truss stiffeners were used to facilitate a very narrow support base and to eliminate anchoring on gates A & B of the PBR terminal. These… Read more »
We won the SAIA 2019 AWP Project of the Year award for this deconstruction project! The Empire Landmark Hotel is the tallest demolition in Vancouver’s history, and a great example of our ability to innovate. We designed the majority of this project using structural steel, involving a cantilevered access / crash deck consisting of over 150,000… Read more »
A new roof was required at an Industrial Plant, that builds pipe racks and modules for the Oil and Gas Industry in Western Canada. Layher Keder system was used to clear span 135′, with the help of a triple deep box beam, constructed out of Layher 750 Truss Beams. Skyline designed, built and engineered the… Read more »
This project is an exterior restoration of a historical landmark in downtown Vancouver – the Royal Bank Building. The Royal Bank Building has historical value as a classical bank built in the 1910s, and is an anchor point on Main and Hastings. Working closely with VDK Masonry, we developed and installed City Super Frame high… Read more »
This project at 400 West Georgia involves 130,000 sq. ft. of bespoke access at the former Vancouver post office building; what is soon-to-be Amazon HQ. The Amazon project required tons of Layher equipment, including multiple gantries, Protect Panels, Allround Scaffolding System, and SpeedyScaf. Throw in super duty 1.4m beams for the big spans/hoists, and there… Read more »
Currently, the home of the Canada Revenue Agency, 1166 W Pender is undergoing redevelopment into a “next-generation” office tower. This project requires an 85,000 sq. ft. full access package as the existing building comes down. It’s nestled between towers and over a busy street so abatement and public protection are key. The project requires lots… Read more »
The HSBC building in downtown Vancouver is a 23-story office tower that was in need of a skylight replacement. The project required a custom fitting of gantry and hoist work to get the job done efficiently and safely, all while accommodating the businesses still operating in the atrium lobby. Being located in a busy city… Read more »
(Watch our motorized Amazon Warehouse roof in action above!) Amazon Warehouse project in Richmond, B.C. We were contracted by Flynn Canada to design, supply, and install a temporary scaffold roofing solution to weatherproof the existing roof during remediation work on the warehouse. This Layher XL Clearspan Keder Roof is 130′ wide by 140′ long —… Read more »
We were tasked with designing a Steel Façade Retention System to protect and support the exterior façade of a heritage building in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver while the remainder of the building underwent demolition for construction of ‘Living Midtown’, a collection of boutique modern homes. Mount Pleasant is known for passionate local businesses and residents and… Read more »
This temporary roof system at Heritage Hall allowed for roof tile replacement as we enter Vancouver’s famous rainy season.
Working with Tiffany & Co. required beams as tough as diamonds! We designed truss and beam style sidewalk hoarding for Tiffany & Co’s branded façade and signage, and the custom-designed engineering required all measurements to be within 8mm. The custom-painted façade included mesh soffit netting and 1000 lb monorail beams for glazing installation. Dual remote… Read more »
The Trump Tower Fly Bridge was designed to be modular, not only to facilitate a modular install, but also to allow us to use the units as sidewalk hoarding once the project was complete. This project included an over 600′ high ‘Skybridge’ to fill in between the dual car, high speed man hoist and the… Read more »
Vancouver’s Spencer Building required over 500 ft. of New York-style City Super Frame sidewalk hoarding, capable of leg loads exceeding 40,000 pounds and 70,000 sq. ft. of 4 ft. wide wall access, including multiple stairs, loading areas, and material hoists. We also custom painted steel components for the owner. Super strong and esthetically pleasing, this… Read more »
We were tasked with the design, supply, and installation of Allround Access scaffold to allow for masonry and other remediation work on the facade of this beautiful Vancouver heritage office building located at 402 West Pender Street. The appearance of the scaffolding was paramount to the building owners, so we installed a painted metal paneling… Read more »
The Stadium-Chinatown Skytrain Station project was one of over 10 re-roofing projects Skyline completed for Skytrain stations and substations in 2019. The project involved free-span roofs that were all completed on non-revenue hours. Due to the highly populated location, noise reduction remediation was implemented during installation to minimize disturbance and noise for the surrounding residences…. Read more »
This was an extremely challenging project involving fully suspended access scaffolding over both Highway 17 and the Fraser River — a job only Layher 750 beams could handle. The scaffolding was designed for steel and rain pipe installation with no ground access — all access was from the piers.
This public access project involved over 400 meters of custom emergency walkway. We engineered the walkway to fit any Skytrain guideway; it was repurposed for the nine other Skytrain stations we worked on over the course of 2019 and 2020 including King George (for Skytrain Track Maintenance, Metrotown, Joyce Street, etc). This custom product was… Read more »
The Dry Gulch Bridge project on the Coquihalla Highway involved over 48,000 sq. ft. of suspended access to facilitate bridge repairs and catch any falling debris. We installed drop-down areas for crossing over/under the main beams. Scaffolding was built to a 50 psf rating throughout.
Skyline was the only company capable of supplying over 150,000 square feet of suspended under deck access. The challenges were extreme, the weight of the system critical. It needed to be light weight, yet meet the requirements of access and environmental protection. The system also needed to be flexible enough to allow for the careful… Read more »
Skyline was tasked with designing a custom bracket that could facilitate emergency access/egress from SkyTrain cars during construction on ANY station on any line. This product has now been used on three different stations, is also used to support suspensions for access below guideways, and to facilitate rail repairs and inspections.
This challenging project was about solving access problems, while minimizing both cost and impact on the courts. Anchoring was scheduled for off court times and we minimized the amount of equipment required to access the gutter repair by “cantilevering” the scaffold at the top and removing the requirement of support from the ground.
The client required a suspended access walkway along 850 lineal feet of concrete bridge, as well as pier cap access capable of 100psf loading. Stair access from grade at piers in excess of 130’ in height was also required in two areas, with access to the cross beams. This was a challenging project, in that… Read more »
