Delegate.

I would imagine that in the planning stage of a job this large, a strategy would have included either hiring unskilled labor, as cdpainting suggested, or hiring a furniture moving company to receive delivery of material, and stage it at the levels you needed it at.

Personally, I have the strength of at least two men. And therefore, would have no problem toting those fives up the stairs.

The job site should have a all terrain fork lift. Palletize your materials, equipment and tools.

Have the forklift operator lift your pallets to the windows in the middle of the project to each floor or other accesses.

Use carts to distribute everything as needed.

appreciated

...my first responses...been a quietly learning lurker for some time now and all input is appreciated...

...this is the largest and longest gig we've done so far so...yes...not everything has fallen in place like a dream and some things unfortunately left unaccounted for...

...there is an indoor scissor lift we'll be using for the 16' walls in the main dining area...will definitely attempt to use it for the window access idea...although I believe the windows are already installed...its just me and two ladies so i'll do anything I can to not carry 2000lbs of 880 up 3 flights over a month...

...site is over an hour away and I haven't put eyes on it in weeks unfortunately...

...anyways...appreciate all the replies...FOR THE THIRD TIME...now I don't feel like some perv spying in from a distance...thanks guys...will need all the advice I can get this coming year...lots of changes...
