Stepping Up Safety

As construction proceeded on the roof of the Rocky Hill High School, crossing a masonry screen wall using a pair of ladders was becoming a frequent but precarious event. Project Superintendent Tom Goizueta quickly put together a practical, more stable solution. He had general trades contractor A. Secondino & Sons build a sturdy, wooden stair tower and landing, equipped with handrails and guardrails, and virtually eliminated the risk of a fall during the climb. “It’s been working great. The guys are really appreciating it. It’ll probably stay up there a good long time,” Goizueta says with a smile.
