Featured Project

The "FEATURED PROJECT" is a feature that highlights current projects that are being erected by IWEA member contractors. Each month we feature a photo slide show of a project or projects as they evolve.

Point Park Playhouse

This 3-story building includes staging, theater style bleacher seating and monumental stairs, all surrounded by pre-existing structures in downtown Pittsburgh. The project required pre-task planning before and after the erection process.  Steel had to be staged in the theater area so it could be hung from 120 foot roof trusses after the trusses were erected. Supervision of multiple crews of Ironworkers, coordinating with other contractors, positioning of the erection crane and crane activities near live roadways and pedestrian traffic made this project a challenge.  

Todd Krouse supervised the project, sent his crew home safely and won the Jack Daley Safety Award for 10,000 - 15,000 Man hours of Safe Construction.

CONGRATULATIONS to Todd Krouse and Abate Irwin for a difficult project completed safely, and making Pittsburgh a great city to live, work and play in!
