Highlights: PSP installed four total hydraulic wedge barriers to secure the loading dock and parking garage of a new 33-story, 850,000 square foot office building worth over $37.5 million. We coordinated closely with the construction contractor to install and certify the security equipment with minimal impacts to other construction activities.
Scope of work: The work consisted of the installation of two sets of hydraulically-operated Gibraltar finger wedge barriers with associated controls and safety equipment. Civil work to install the barriers was done approximately six months prior to electrical and controls work because of site conditions. The barriers blocked all access to key locations on the construction site, and work had to be closely coordinated with the prime contractor to avoid negative impacts to other subcontractors and work activities.
