In a world where even the smallest details get blow up on the interwebs it seems harder and harder to get someone’s attention or interest. But this was one of those cool jobs that seemed much less attention-getting from the outset but further digging proved just how creative our designers and crew had to be.

What do you see when you look the picture of the debris chute sticking out from the side of the building? A plain debris chute?  Look again.

It’s a 200 foot high debris chute with access on ALL 20 floors! And in order to have a hopper on each level Superior Scaffold needed to encase the chute in a system scaffold structure that would support the weight of the debris system. So the actual chute is supported by the system scaffold and not just dangling off of the roof.

And then as an added precaution we encased the entire unit with debris netting to keep the dust and detritus contained.

And there’s even more. More, you say?  Yes, unbelievable.  Superior also designed an ingenious loading platform at the back of the building for safe access to the hoist and all of the material.

It provided overhead protection as well as a safe place for crews to get on and off of the man material hoist.

This is the new construction for Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Deptford Township, NJ. I’m not exactly sure if they took over a building that was designed for someone or something else but Bob’s decided, heck, they needed to open up the front and sides of this storefront to let light shine on through.

Well, as you can see, they needed a way to support the building while they cut the giant openings out of the bricks (façade) for the new glass and headers.

Superior Scaffold was called in to design compact system towers that would support our steel needle beams. And what a success it was. They were able to safely remove the needed façade and install the new headers and glass. These needle beams and scaffolding make for a great way to accomplish a job like this.  We’ve got many more examples you can check out on our website.

Scaffold Bridge for Disguised Substation in Avalon, NJ

Now, what do I mean by disguised? Check this out.  This a rendering of what the new Peerman electrical substation in Avalon, NJ will look like.

How cool is that? A house!!! Not some giant, nasty looking, electrical, transformer filled, barbed wire nightmare. No. This is a working substation/house with a balcony, windows, a garage, landscaping and more. This might be common practice but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. And I dig it, baby.

So that leads us to just what is Superior Scaffold doing on this project? Well, take a look at the job site. This is a far cry from the glory of the finished renderings – but in due time, my friends, due time.

They are currently constructing the new building and we were called in to erect a scaffold bridge from the old substation, up and over, into the new one. Crews working on this Atlantic City Electric job needed a way to get down into the new building safely.  If you look carefully at this photo you can see the trench, rebar, cement, dirt, and other obstacles that stood in their way.

We erected a scaffold bridge using system scaffolding that’s 4’ wide X 31’ long X 13’ high. It also incorporates a stair tower, deck, plank, guard rails, ladder and more.

The surrounding upscale residential area has grown substantially in the last several years and has caused the existing substation and transmission lines serving this area to be near their load capacity. This is a substation and we are subcontractor for Ray Angelini, Inc. who is installing the conduit in the new structure.

The existing 23kV substation must be re-built at 69kV to accommodate this load growth and to allow for continued growth in the area. The new substation will benefit the entire 7-mile Island and areas surrounding the causeways to the mainland.

Carry that heavy load: Shoring at New Jersey DOT Maintenance Building

The NJ Department of Transportation is replacing 4 giant windows and lintels at their maintenance garage at 1959 S. Delsea Dr., Vineland, New Jersey and called Superior Scaffold to supply the necessary shoring equipment.

For those who don’t know what a lintel is – a lintel is defined as a structural horizontal block that spans the space or opening between two vertical supports often found over portals, doors, windows, and fireplaces.

So to do the job, there are 3 needle beams per 9’ X 9’ window to carry the roof and the wall above. There are two shoring towers per window, one on each side of the wall to carry the needle beams.

You can see in the photos the exterior towers and the interior towers constructed from hi-load shoring frames. The needle beams pass directly through the building and are supported on each side by steel beams that sit on the u-heads on top of the towers.  This holds the weight of the building above it so crews can replace the lintels below.

Each tower is 4’ wide, 7’ long and 15’ high.

They are also in the process of re-roofing the building so our towers had the added weight of the crew and their equipment.

Beside the usual access challenges, the biggest was how to erect the tower around the flag pole out front of the building. In the end, it was decided to go right up next to it. Worked like a charm.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Scaffolders

Superior Scaffold rocks people’s troubles away every day and even some nights. Yes, it’s our job to ease the minds of our clients and their audience so they can do what they do best.

We not only protect the customers from the myriad of construction projects that can go on but we also allow businesses to remain open while said project rocks on.

Consider us the “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Scaffolders” of the tri-state area.

And how do we do it?  By composing the best scaffolding for the job.  Just like this overhead protection (canopy) at Jacobs Music in Center City, Philadelphia, PA. It’s not big, it’s not fancy but it looks great and, most importantly, it does the job. Not only did we provide a sidewalk shed (using scaffold frames, steel beams, aluminum beams and debris panels) but if you look carefully there is a small section of shoring as well.  It was all part of their facelift to give the storefront more exposure with new windows and entryway.

We also put a Jacobs Music banner on the ends of the canopy – insuring customers knew exactly which proprietor was behind the stage (so to speak).

You can see the finished results here.  On this job, you could say that we lived for the music.

In all fairness, they are a refined piano merchant so with that I give you…

In their day, these guys were the true rock stars!
