The Basilica of the National Shrine

3101 Wisconsin Avenue, Washington, DC, USA

UBS was able to accommodate the Shrine’s request to stay open for regular services throughout the renovation by designing a scaffold that was supported from the Shrine’s main columns. This was done using two large collector trusses, weighing approximately 12,000 pounds each. An elaborate roller system allowed the scaffold platform to travel atop the trusses from the Redemption Dome to the Incarnation Dome.
