Long story but trying to figure out the easiest option for a platform for concrete finishers to work on new coping that’s about to be poured around around our existing pool. The bottom of the deep end curves so much that regular scaffolding isn’t really an option. Other ideas that would give our finishers a U-shaped ledge to work around the deep end of the pool? (Don’t ask as to why the pool company isn’t figuring this out themselves haha). Thank you

Post pics of the areas you need to levitate the workers around. Let’s see what pro tips @jimmythegreek or @bdavis466 have.

You hired the wrong crew. This isn't your responsibility and it opens you up to more liability than you're already assuming.

If a crew can't handle building their own scaffolding then I seriously question their forming ability and their concrete finishing skills.

I agree. It's pretty simple in a concrete pool. These guys have a stockpile of walk boards amd lumber to do their job. Better crews have cherry pickers that sit on the deck amd float over amd Jhook into the pool
