Excel Electrical Technologies and Uni-Sky Corp. hired Tukwila, Wash.-based Spider to provide necessary access for the large, glass Coke® bottle stationed as a focal point to the anticipated New World of Coca-Cola® museum being built in Atlanta.
On the exterior of the 25-foot high Coke® bottle, Uni-Sky used Spider’s 20-foot modular platform with two Zmac/1000 hoists, one walk-thru stirrup and one end stirrup for installing all the glass pieces to enclose the Coke® bottle.
According to Spider, the interior of the space was particularly challenging. The company provided Excel Electrical with a powered bosun chair — a small one-man hoist unit — for the confined areas the worker had to go through to install light fixtures in the intricate steel and glass structure. Spider rigged this job and solved the tieback requirements by ultimately tying into the sub roof.
Spider’s work on the New World of Coca-Cola® is finished, and completion of the new museum is scheduled for May 2007.
