On March 12, 2023 LIG Rentals received a call from one of our Vendors that 1 Raley store roof in South Lake Tahoe had collapsed from the weight of the snow and another one they were hoping to save.  We deployed our team immediately with our plan.  The plan was to bring shovels and tarps for the top of the roof and bring loaders, dump trucks and skid steers for the ground work.  The store roof was 10 feet higher across a 65,000 sq foot building Originally there were approximately 100 total workers including us but expanded to well over 200 roof workers.  The job completion took 9 days at 12 hour shifts and was estimated at over 6 million pounds of snow removed from the roof.  Structural engineers determined that the building was safe and that the quick reaction time and some luck save the building that serves the community.  One audible that I called was huge.  The 3rd day in they opened the store back up for business.  This caused a tremendous influx of shoppers.  I quickly realized that a Traffic Control team needed to be in place.  I called a meeting with the Raley Executives and told them I would spearhead traffic control with my teammates.  I explained that not only will it prevent injuries but it would allow for us to double the dump load count.  This idea was approved and it allowed us to finish in 1/2 the time than they anticipated. Here is what LIG provided the city:

  • (2) Dump trucks
  • (2) 644 Loaders
  • (2) Skid Steers
  • (10  Staff members
