Charlton Hospital in progress

Fall River, MA—Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River is getting a new look. The project involves the complete restoration of the hospital’s façade including the installation of curtain wall, insulation and metal panels with the goal of improving functionality and achieving a more modern look.

There are an abundance of access requirements that gave Marr Scaffolding Company an opportunity to install a range of products and provide numerous services including the design, installation and dismantling of scaffolding at seven locations; over 20 suspended platform (swing stage) assemblies as well as  six Hydro Mobile mast climbers and associated shoring. Multi‐trade usage of the equipment includes masonry, roofing, waterproofing, and window contractors.

Marr’s Hydro Mobile equipment was utilized for five months and was recently dismantled; at this point in the project, Marr has scaffolding, shoring and swing stage equipment on the job.

The hospital has remained operational during the renovation (some work occurred over two active ambulance bays) so close coordination of all construction activity and adherence to an agreed upon schedule was paramount.
