Condominium buildings, large and small, are everywhere in Southwest Florida and with that comes the need for safe and secure railings on all the balconies and staircases.
Installing railings on condo buildings is no easy task. It requires a company with Extensive knowledge of the types of railings offered and the installation process, along with a company with the resources to handle large projects. It is also crucial that the company has the appropriate project management skills for the project, as some of the work may be may need to be coordinated with other trades also working on the building or homeowners occupying the units.
On this particular project we were called in to replace all of the condo balcony handrails and aluminum frames for screen. The project consisted of over 50 units on a Seven story condo building that was undergoing a complete exterior restoration. The work needed to be completed on a tight deadline to accommodate homeowners who were awaiting their return for the season. To make the workflow as efficient as possible handrails for the units were prefabricated on the ground level. Once prefabrication on the ground was complete each unit was then hoisted to the appropriate balcony for installation. By doing this floor traffic through the interior of the condominiums was minimized as well as the potential for damage by transporting materials in the front door of each condo to the rear balcony.
