Market Street Men of Steel – Cantilever Scaffold

The new owners of 1101 Market St. wanted to make some changes to the entryway and needed to give crews access to a hard to reach area. This section is literally cut into the entrance to the Aramark Tower (now the Jefferson Center) four stories up.

Superior Scaffold was called in by GC, Clemens Construction, to create a cantilever scaffold where the base would sit inside the lobby of the building but would allow crews to work out under the section extruding from the building. Our cantilevered work deck had to support everyone from iron workers putting in the new steel, to carpenters, finishers, electricians and more – truly a multi-trade scaffold.

The system scaffold, cantilever was roughly 30’ long and 20’ high with a 5’ cantilever at the top and a work deck on top of that.

The tricky part was that we had to go out 5 feet from where the base was placed in the lobby. To support the weight we had to take it straight up – and then using jacks on the bottom of the standards – we literally jacked the scaffold up and pinned it to the ceiling to hold it in place.

I love it when a job comes together.  Needless to say, that it went off without a hitch and the new owners are happy with the remodeled entryway.

If you need scaffolding, shoring or a cantilever, call Tommy at 215 743-2200 today and he’ll take care of you. Visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more information.

And for today’s musical selection we have this little gem – just because.

Everyone knows that I like to bring the cool jobs to light no matter how large or small they might be, and this one certainly fits.

It’s pretty amazing to think that this car wash works around the clock 365 days a year. I had no idea that this rental car company (at Philadelphia International Airport) washed so many cars in a month.  It’s non stop!  I guess it makes sense with cars constantly being rented and turned back in.

If something were to happen to the building it would be nearly impossible to shut it down for repairs. Well, that’s exactly what happened. Over time natural aging has caused the bar joists to pull away from the cinderblock walls causing concern for the roof, especially if a large snow were to fall.

They have contracted to do the permanent work in the spring but in the meantime they called Superior Scaffold to shore up those joists on both sides inside the car wash.

It’s basically a two-lane car wash that runs all the time. Our crew had to come in after 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (their only slow time) to erect the shoring scaffold one lane at a time.

They would shut one lane down on Tuesday night for our crew so they could erect the system scaffold that was acting as shoring. We used system scaffold because of the tight space they had to work with. The entire time they worked, the other lane would continue to wash cars! I wonder if they wore their rain gear?

And then on Wednesday night, they shut down the other lane so our crew could scaffold the opposite side.

I guess there was one sensor that if you stepped in front of would send the water and bubbles spraying everywhere.

The job went off without a hitch and she’s up and running two cars at a time – all day and night. Had no idea how busy these guys were.  Crazy.
