Spider Hangs US Capitol Flags for Inauguration Day

Contractor: The Architect of the Capitol (AOC)
Facility Owner:

Spider provided training and access expertise for the installation of the American flags that served as the background for President Obama’s 2009 inaugural platform. Modular platforms were suspended from custom-engineered cornice hooks that bypassed the Capitol’s sandstone cornice which, though it had been used for the rigging point for the previous inaugurations, was recently deemed insufficient for rigging a stage. AOC workers completed Spider’s Competent Person Training course to ensure their safe operation on site. Spider delivery and rigging personnel passed FBI background checks to access the site and performed more rigorous onsite equipment inspections to ensure safety and security on this sensitive project.
