Working for G. Greene Construction, Isaac Blair installed shoring for the demolition of three loading dock slabs and to support the framework for the pouring of new slabs. An enormous amount of piping and electrical conduit was fixed tight to the underside of the slabs to be removed, requiring the crew to support the utilities themselves, while fitting shoring over, above and around them. Tilt-up bracing at the columns and walls was used to provide lateral support during removal.
The project was physically demanding and required a high degree of precision. A crew of seven worked 10-hour days, six days a week for the month of June to accomplish the install.
Following the project, G. Greene’s Superintendent Patrick McGrath and Project Manager Connor Reardon reached out via email to Lou Giunta, President of Isaac Blair, to compliment & Co the team’s success:
“The team of Isaac Blair showed a level of professionalism that I have seen few times before in my tenure in the construction industry. From the top to the bottom, they are truly masters of their craft. With a job as demanding and technically complicated as this project was, I would not have trusted anyone else to complete this on time. The days were long and demanding and spirits were always high and willing to work. This project overall would not have been as successful as it was without the help and diligent work of Isaac Blair. I will forever lobby for them in future work and projects where their craft is needed. This is not to be taken lightly because good reviews and praises do not come from me very often at all. Thank you again to the entire team on this one.”
Patrick McGrath – G. Greene Superintendent
“Isaac Blair was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire project. Having little experience with shoring in the past, Isaac Blair made me feel extremely comfortable with their processes and professionalism. The Harvard Quincy House Garage project was extremely complicated with tight working spaces; they worked well with all the other subcontractors and coordinated their work around them as needed. I would absolutely suggest Isaac Blair as a shoring subcontractor in the future. Great work by all!”
