Did a bird wire installation on a downtown Cleveland Ohio skyscraper. 32 stories high which translates into about 420 feet high on side of building.

I hope you emptied your pockets before climbing out there!

Great pics, and I hope this fix works on the first try. Id hate to have to do a site revisit on this one.

That looks like fun! It would be a tough one to bid. Lots of opportunity to leave money on the table if you did not have some Insight to your compatison pricing

Job took just 2 days to complete 400 foot...2 sides of the building and we bid it high as it was a emergency need for this government building. So it is a government job. We got paid well on this job.

Also this was there scope of work...not our design and so we were very clear that this solution is not certified as a bird deterrent and we have that in writing. Our bird deterrent would be netting installed but they know the install we did per their scope we are not certifying it as a deterrent however it should keep the predatory birds from accessing

Not for this guy. The 1st few days of deer season is not fun sitting 18 ft off the ground.

Being how Im afraid of heights, I thought I was going to hurl just looking at your pictures! Hope you made good money AND the birds move on to other buildings.
