Value Delivered

DeBra-Kuempel Inc. was contracted to design and install scaffolding for a roofing project at Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter in Chains.

Our solutions allowed roofers and other trades to safely access their worksite without having to tie off, which helped to save time and money.

We erected the scaffolding to facilitate easier access to the building’s facade, and to protect endangered plants.

We completed the scaffolding erection two weeks prior to deadline.


As a design-build subcontractor on this project, we:

  • Installed 200,000 pounds of scaffolding including stair towers
  • Designed adaptable scaffolding to help protect endangered plants
