It goes like this.

You take your hard earned cash and give it to a stock broker who promises to make you a rich man. He says, “stick with me son, you’ll be farting through silk.” And since you don’t know jack about stocks and bonds only that you’ve seen these arrogant young punks driving around in Maseratis, Teslas and Ferraris you assume that they know what they are doing. So, against your better judgment – you send him your money.

Maybe you check in with him maybe you don’t, but a few months later he calls and says, “wow we are doing great so lets up the anti and buy some more stock.” Could be it’s high tech, maybe it’s a slack manufacturer – whatever. He says, “you don’t even need to send any more money; we’ll borrow it but let’s get in now, since it’s rock bottom.” They are experts at getting your adrenaline pumping. “We’re going to be rolling in so much dough you can use it as deodorant.”

Months go buy and you don’t hear a thing from your “best buddy”, the broker, so you decide to check up on your investment.  Wow. To your surprise you’ve lost just about everything AND now you have a margin call for the money that “He” “We” borrowed to buy that “No Lose” stock. So you frantically call to get information but no surprise, Mr. Broker is no where to be found.

A few weeks later you run in to him at lunch as he tosses the valet the keys to his brand new 4 wheel drive Tesla, yep, the big one. And yes, he looks great in his hand tailored, designer suit. “Buddy,” you say. “What the F?  Where have you been and where’s all my money?” To which he smiles, runs his hand down the lapel of his suit puts his other hand on your shoulder and says, “yeah, sorry about that. It just didn’t work out. We’ll get ’em next time, tiger.”

“Ncxt time?  Tiger?” you say, irritated.

“You knew the risks. I do the best I can for my clients. Call me in a couple of weeks and let’s earn that money back. You’ll have to excuse me I’ve got a 12:30 reservation,” he says.

There are a lot of people around but what you would like to say is, “the next twelve thirty you’re gonna’ have is wit Luca Brasi while you are swimming wit the fishes.” But you can’t so you force a smile and walk off. 

Good thing the valet left the keys to his new Tesla sitting on the stand when he ran off to park another car!  🙂

What does this have to do with Superior Scaffold and the giant job we did at 1900 Market? Well, that building is home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, among others, and it just spawned a story idea.  (A true story idea?  Maybe.) You’ll have to ask me in person at the next GBCA or SADV event. Ha.

But either way, we have an awesome overhead protection system all the way around the building so crews above, in our suspended scaffold, could do a total re-caulk, paint, and installation of new LED lighting. The caulking and painting was done by Old Philadelphia Associates and the sign lighting was done by ANC. I urge you to take a look at the photos of the canopy as there are a few really cool things happening there. Try to spot them.

Unlike the brokers, who say they’ll protect your money, we do protect the pedestrians, cars and businesses with our canopies. We keep the doors open and commerce rocking while work goes on overhead – Guaranteed. And we provide crews with access to just about anywhere they need to be. You can take that to the bank.

Here’s a little about 1900 Market Street: Its is a 456,922 square foot,9-story office building located between 19th and 20th Street on Market Street in Philadelphia, PA. The building features an 8 story, central courtyard with a sun-filled skylight. The building is constructed of reinforced concrete footings on concrete slab with a structural steel frame. The exterior walls are composed of concrete panels and glass curtain wall. The building is LEED and Energy Star Certified. Built in 1981 by Rouse & Associates, the building’s main lobby and main entrances were renovated in 2014-2015. The new lobby area was transformed in a modern looking and inspirational meeting space for Tenants and Visitors. The facelift included new decorative wall panels, new grey natural ceramic floor tile along with new pond and gas fire places.

New Construction, The Alexander, 1601 Vine St. 14 swing stages!

New building construction.  That’s not something you see us writing about at Superior Scaffold.  We tend to show you the work we do renovating the classic old buildings.  But we actually do quite a bit of new building construction.  I just tend to focus on the old architecture because they make really pretty pictures.  Ha.  Don’t tell my boss.

But when the guys at Armor Masonry brought us along for this job we thought it was a great opportunity to showcase some really complicated work on the Alexander – a new 32-story residential tower located on the North side of Center City.

It’s hard to tell from the pictures but we had a total of 14 suspended scaffolds hanging on this job covering the entire façade.

Armor had a super tight schedule working with multiple trades and we were happy to provide the swing stages to help them meet the deadline.  The main focus was to provide crews access to caulk all the windows, doors and joints of the precast panels.

I like the fact that you can see the progress from these photos.  Armor’s Gene Rose said, “There were several obstacles during this project. The main one being time constraints. The building needed to be watertight so the interior finishes could remain on schedule.”

The solution was two mobilizations: The first from the 18th floor.  Installing the top rigging out of the window openings and caulking from 18 down utilizing 14 swings.  The 2nd mobilization was from the 35th floor and several lower offset roofs and balconies down to the 18th.

The deadline was met even while working with and coordinating swing moves with National Glass and Universal Precast.

Everyone was thrilled with the work and the fact that the tight timeline was met.

And for our musical selection today – I’m feeling a tad nostalgic…

Most of my posts are written and then I come up with the musical theme but this one was written the other way around.  I heard the song and thought it was fantastic but when I saw the video it just moved me.  It’s one of the coolest combinations of film and music I’ve seen in a long time. (scroll to bottom)

Since this is a blog and the idea is to Say Something about the work we do and the equipment that goes into it and the challenges we overcome I started to do my usual thinking about how to present it.

But then I started to think maybe our work does Say Something without having to tell you that this is an enormous sidewalk overhead protection system or canopy that goes around the entire building using both frames and system scaffold – maybe I just show you and see what it says to you.

Our guys don’t get “caught up in the middle of it” – they just do their jobs and they do it well.  Like when we couldn’t put our scaffold legs (to the left) on top of that small decorative brass strip running down the sidewalk next to the building, they had to come up with a solution.

And when we couldn’t tie into the building our guys creatively used tube and clamp to anchor to the pillars on one side.  And they used push ties or anchors on the other sides.

I probably should at least tell you that the Suburban Station (One Penn Center) is an awesome art deco office building and underground commuter station at 16th and Jfk.  From the outside she looks fabulous.

And we erected this amazing canopy so crews above could replace the windows on the entire building.  Quite a job.

And of course we had to do it all while keeping the doors and businesses open.

Our scaffolds come and go, all around this city, like snow flakes in a storm.  Some are incredible works of art that just make you smile when you see them.  I think our work does Say Something!

The musical selection is this video that got me going.  And those who know my past can understand my appreciation for the single camera shot and special live audio mix! (And in the Bradbury building to boot)  Wow, oh wow!

And here’s a little about the One Penn Center (Suburban Station) building.

Suburban Station is an art deco office building and underground commuter rail station in Penn Center, Philadelphia. Its official SEPTA address is 16th Street and JFK Boulevard. The station is owned and operated by SEPTA and is one of the three core Center City stations on the SEPTA Regional Rail. The station was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad to replace the original Broad Street Station and opened on September 28, 1930.

The station opened as a stub-end terminal for Pennsylvania Railroad trains serving Center City Philadelphia, intended to replace the above-ground Broad Street Station in this function. The station’s full name was originally Broad Street Suburban Station. One Penn Center served as the headquarters of the PRR from 1930 to 1957.
