    Hi, my name is Chris from Toronto. I’m 35 years old and have been doing various construction and trade work over the past 10 years. I focus on High Rise restoration using suspended access equipment (swing stages) and elevated platforms. Restoration is a jack of many trades, so on site I may need to do concrete balcony restoration, forms, caulking removal, caulking, brick replacement, chipping, tuckpointing, TWF, suspended access rigging, painting. Also I have laboured in roofing, climbed telecommunications towers, general contracting etc. I look forward to learning a lot from all of you. I’m so glad I found this site and enjoy reading the posts in the forums!

    Now THAT’S some commercial work right there!
    Welcome aboard Chris, glad to have you here, looking forward to some of your problem solving; ’cause when you’re that high up, I guess there’s no going back down to get something you forgot.

    Thanks for the Welcome everyone. I enjoy sharing any info of work that I did and am doing on High Rises. Yes, the views are great! Since I am experienced at rigging the stages, I no longer have the fear about the heights like I did back when I started and was a greenhorn. Always a 4-1 weight ratio for saftey, and everyone has their own lifeline secured to their own engineered roof anchor. I must admit through the years I have seen some scary stage rigging and careless rigging. I have even seen beams sliding off cradles, no tie backs on roof, rusted stage floor boards, etc. If anyone is doing High Rise and is new and has any questions, please feel free to ask. Also the two best rentals for swing stage in Toronto is “Skyway” and “Scafom”. You always get perfect conditioned equipment, and service is top notch. There are others like “xxxxx”, but their equipment delivered to many a sites looked poorly maintained and sometimes downright dangerous.

    Top of the world to you Chris. It looks like you are able to get high every day, legally. It seems like an interesting job.
