Staten Island Scaffolding Dance

The scaffolding goes up? Then scaffolding goes down.  Sounds like a really long game of the hokey pokey.  Well this is the case for Borough Hall over in Staten Island.  The $1.3 million repair job was has taken over two years.  The scaffolding has been up for 30 months.  Once the new scaffolding is up it will take only three months to finish.

By the numbers the current scaffolding costs $4,329 per month and has cost the city over $129,000 as of today.

The new scaffolding by a new repair company will cost $200,000 from the entire project’s cost.

The system seems to make every slow down.  The red tape and paper work is detrimental to the project’s completion.  The full restoration of Borough Hall is expected to be end of December.
