Steadily increasing our territory, Chinook Saskatoon opened its doors in 2009. Saskatoon Branch continues to grow and offer the safest and most efficient service to our central clients. Chinook Scaffold Systems Ltd. Saskatoon is for everyone from the weekend warrior, do-it-yourself handyman, to medium sized contractors and global corporations in the industrial and commercial industries.
Chinook Saskatoon carries on the Chinook way, we are a proudly diverse company that can provide aerial access platforms, rentals, sales, setup, dismantles, consulting and training. Chinook is very excited to be a part of the blooming economy here in Saskatchewan. That is why Chinook made the commitment of setting up a permanent location here in Saskatoon. There is major growth taking place in the housing, industrial, commercial and retail development; it is a very exciting time!
Craig Pitcher, a member of our Saskatoon Branch Management team, comments on what sets Chinook apart:
"The fact that all managers, foremen, worker and office personnel take the time to understand all tasks the customer specifies and are willing to acquire training and tools needed to successfully complete the project at hand. Our ability and knowledge from the various sectors of Chinook allows us to pull from all regions the safest and most efficient aerial platform or scaffold structure required".
From an interview with Saskatoon Branch Manager Craig Pitcher:
What was one of your most interesting projects to date?
"Finding a way to provide a scaffold access to a hydro gate and a concrete surrounding, while still allowing movable parts to slide by, the access could only be 31" wide and 50' high. On this site we also had to get trained on a crane that dated back to 1932... no manual around for that! Chinook, Saskpower, Andritz Hydro managed to figure out the vintage controls while following all safety procedures and were able to properly maneuver the crane".
Chinook's Saskatoon Branch actively donates to the Saskatchewan Construction Association. Providing scaffold and material to teach the scaffolding awareness course that is put on every few months.
This branch also provides scaffolding for the Pike Lake Community Hall's annual Halloween Haunted House in their community. Hopefully we can get a picture of that this year! UPDATE: A picture and big thank you from the group at Pike Lake Community Hall - looks like their scary night was a big success!
