ACECO frequently performs projects for which the historic facades are retained for historic/aesthetic purposes. At the same time, we frequently perform projects for which the current existing façade is undesired, unsafe, or outdated and requires removal and replacement. In both cases, extreme care is needed to ensure that either the historic façade is kept intact while the remainder of the structure is removed, or the façade is removed without impacting the structure to remain, and in many cases, the occupants of the building therein. When performing faced removal/retention work, ACECO utilizes specialized equipment and highly-trained and experienced work crews to ensure that the work is performed safely, on time, and with the least possible disruption to tenants and the general public. Frequently these operations involve intense coordination with shoring and bracing and/or rigging/hoisting operations.
