Superior Scaffold installed a 200 foot long walkway/loading dock with overhead protection right next to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology building.  It is adjacent to the massive hole where the old Penn Tower used to sit.

It serves a dual purpose; giving access to the loading docks of the museum and also providing a way in to the new structure coming out of the ground.

We erected a bridge column canopy or overhead protection system. The GC laid down the pilings and structural steel foundation for us to build upon.

We put our aluminum beams down and then decked it solid with plank and plywood for a super smooth, stable surface.

We provided stairs off to the side that allows crews to safely get their equipment in an out of the giant hole.

There is a gap in the platform on the left side and that is for an elevator that is to come in later.

The Forrest Theater is a beautiful, classic, playhouse built in 1928 and located at 1114 Walnut Street in the Center City area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Built at a cost of $2,000,000 it was one of architect Herbert J. Krapps more elaborate theaters. The interior is intricately decorated with gilt detailing (silver gilded with gold) and silk fabrics.  And that’s exactly why Superior Scaffold was brought in.  We provided the painting and restoration crews access to the entire perimeter of the theater, including the walls, ceiling and all surfaces, so they could restore it to it’s former glory.

Crews needed to paint and re-gild the highly detailed, multicolored embellishments and areas that had chipped or faded over time.

There are so many great pictures; I urge you to scroll down and see them all.

It might look great now but our scaffold crew had some huge challenges to get this built.

The first big challenge was dealing with all of the theater chairs.  Imagine having to strategically place each of your scaffold legs in between or around the chairs and then build upwards five stories.

It’s quite the maze the team had to think around while laying it out.

The second was that they had to lay the scaffold out on a radius and as you know we are dealing with straight lines and rectangles.

The third challenge was the fact that the theater is on an incline, sloping up and away from the stage.  So everything had to be leveled out so the work platform up top was perfectly flat.

And the fourth was that the scaffold had to continue and seamlessly connect to the lower and upper mezzanine levels.

So not only did our team have to build around the maze of chairs and curves but they also had to balance out the difference in elevation and continue it into the balcony so that the dance floor at the top would be level.  Great job guys!

As I mentioned, we erected scaffolding that gave the crews access to all of the surfaces so they could paint and restore it to its former brilliance.

The giant scaffold that we erected in the main part of the theater consists of system scaffold, 2 and 3 foot outriggers, trusses, steel plank, a stair tower for access and a rope and wheel to hoist material.  The elevation is 4’ in the rear and 54’ high in the front of the theater.  It’s 42’ wide across the front of the stage and 92’ wide at the rear.

It’s primary purpose was to build this large work platform for the crew to reach the dome.

This dance floor consisted of skip plank and plywood.

We also gave the crew rolling towers to reach the highest elevations.

Here you can see them putting the final touches on the incredible ceiling.  It looks amazing.  They are doing a great job!

You can see the intricate details of the multicolored embellishments.  I would guess they were made from plaster and not carved out of wood but you just never know.

They lowered the chandelier down and out of the way.  We erected our scaffold around this delicate, priceless work of art.  It will be put back into place once the painting and restoration is complete.

The stage was our lay down area.  We had to get the equipment in from the garage across the alley.  We also provide scaffolding and access in the attic as well.  That will be fodder for another blog.  It’s just too much to detail here.

We had been called out the previous season to provide scaffolding in the balconies and perimeter to do some minor touch ups until they could do this entire restoration.  The photo isn’t the greatest but you can see what the theater looked like before.

Superior Scaffold installed a 580 foot long work deck or platform on both sides of the barrel shaped Reading Terminal Market (RTM) to give crews access to replace the roof.

The platform is 6 feet wide by 8 feet high by 580 feet long and allows crews to roll their equipment and material from the mast climber at one end to their location anywhere along building.

Reading Terminal Market is a sprawling, somewhat chaotic, indoor farmer’s market and food haven where over 100 merchants offer culinary treats, fresh produce and unique merchandise.  It occupies an old train shed that was built in 1893 and is located at 12th and Arch Streets in downtown, Philadelphia.

On the outset this might seem like a simple procedure but getting crews and equipment on top of a curved building took some ingenuity.  Leave it to our resident swing king, Bob Sarkisian, to come up with a unique design.

The biggest challenges were tying into the wood truss that ran all the way down the inside of the barrel (needed to support and stabilize) and then setting the supporting scaffold.

This shows how we tied into that truss and then weatherproofed the connection with a sealed rubber boot.  This also gives you a good idea of the grade of the roof.

The work platform was decked with steel plank and plywood the entire length of the building and enabled crews to use their rolling equipment carts to easily move material to their location.

It has toe board and guard rails down the entire length.  There is system scaffold, trusses and compression tie-ins underneath.  It’s really quite the design.

Here you can see the permanent metal ladder built into the dome which allowed the crew to take their gear and material up to the top of the roof.

Let’s switch gears and talk about what we did at the ground level.

This is the other part of this massive job – a giant overhead protection system.

The canopy on 12th street is 580’ long by 8’ high by 8’ wide.  (above, you see it prior to debris panels and netting)

You’ll notice that this overhead protection system is constructed of bridge columns instead of our normal system scaffold or frames.   We painted the debris panels green to blend in better and added debris netting for protection.

It spans over Filbert St.  We had to have 2 giant 50 foot steel beams specially manufactured to span that gap.  You can clearly see them in this shot.  Cranes were brought in to set them into place.  Alternate Design Solutions engineered the steel beams for us.

The canopy on the Arch St. side (and the crosswalk from the new convention center to the old one) is 120’ long by 8’ high by 8’ wide on each side.

There is also a stair tower and mast climber on each side of the RTM to provide crews with access and the material they need up on the roof.

I think the following photo gives you the best perspective on just how steep the roof is and what a marvel the platform turned out to be.

I couldn’t decide on today’s musical number, they both seemed to hit the mark, so I put them both up… enjoy.

When the Under Armour corporation needed protection – who did they call?  Yup, Superior Scaffold.

The company that makes heat protection and sun protection sport and fitness wear called Superior to erect an overhead protection system or canopy or sidewalk shed, whatever you’d like to call it, at their new store in Center City at 1529 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA.  And we gladly obliged.  Hey, they protect us everyday with our Superior Scaffold logo shirts so it was the least we could do for them.

This was kind of unique too, in that we erected our canopy with one leg sitting on top of Jersey barriers (a modular concrete or plastic barrier employed to separate lanes of traffic).  And this overhead protection system actually sits in the street.

We had a second set of Jersey barriers on the inside that helped protect and guide pedestrians around the construction that was going on behind the fence and netting in front of the building.  Those provided extra protection from any debris that might have been kicked up during the process.  It’s a system scaffold using steel beams for support and has fencing and netting, lights,  as well as a corrugated roof and our lovely yellow warning banners.

We are always here when you need us – to serve and protect the good citizens of Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware… One call does it all (215) 743-2200 or log on to www.superiorscaffold.com today.

And today’s musical number is something I have been craving…(yes, it goes against our marketing strategy of YOU calling US…but it’s just a song). From the band Sugarloaf.  They were named after a mountain outside of Boulder, Colorado.  Such a lovely place.  I’ll move there one day.

It has come to my attention that those of you who get the email version of this cannot see the musical numbers I pick.  I guess the mail program strips them out.  Hmmm.  You can go here to our blog, click on the title, scroll down and listend to the music.

Time to check out new equipment, mingle with clients, customers and vendors, and even have a little fun…

Screeeeeeech…

But I have to get there first.

So, this should have been a quiet, calm, normal flight to Las Vegas but someone read the gate number wrong and sat contently until they started boarding (not naming names here).  I diligently took my place in line at A53 when called and then waited some more until the gate attendant announced that group A could board to San Diego…  Woo hoo.  Sun, surf, sand, my old stomping grounds!  Wait…  San Diego?  I confirmed with the person in front of me and then took a closer look at my boarding pass… C-29 and I was at C-26 – oops.  And my plane boarded 10 minutes prior.

Run Forrest Run!

Well, as many of you know it’s been a rather tough year for me physically – so I literally did my best Forrest Gump imitation and frantically hobbled through the terminal to my gate… only to see this…

Crickets… Nada…Nobody… Yep.  But my gate door even had a chain across it.  Oh boy… But I could also see this through the window.

So there was hope!   I continued my mad dash to the next gate desk and found a very helpful lady and told her that I could see my plane but the gate was all locked up… She said, “don’t worry – I’ll make a call.”  And she did.  And two minutes later they opened the door and happily let me on.  Whew.  Now, I’m not here to push one airline or another but these guys at Southwest were terrific.  Even the two flight attendants greeted me with smiles as they let me board.  I can’t say that all of the passengers were happy about it, but I got on.  Viva Las Vegas.  Way to start a trip.

More good news.  We had a surprise tailwind heading from East to West and we landed thirty minutes early.  Bonus.  I met the rest of the gang who flew in from Philadelphia.  They arrived fifty minutes early.  Off to the hotel.

Yes, they put me on the one floor they hadn’t converted to non smoking yet.  Ugggg.  I quickly nipped that in the bud and got moved.  Honestly, TI wasn’t that bad.

Then it was off to the World of Concrete to look at scaffolding, swing stages, mast climbers, lifts, access equipment and more.  I had heard it was big but that was an understatement.

It was at the Las Vegas convention center and took up two or three of their giant halls and also several parking areas out front.  It was HUGE.

I don’t know where it rates in the pantheon of largeness in Vegas but I would assume it’s one of the bigger ones.  There was everything you could ever want in the construction/concrete scaffold industry.  We would have to split this up into two days just to see everything.

The boys from Superior Scaffold started inside, since it was cold and rainy outside – yes, it does happen in Vegas. (I’ll show you a pic of the snow covered mountain range the next morning)  We moved around from vendor booths and exhibits taking in the wares from old friends and new possibilities alike.

I have never seen so many poured slabs of concrete specifically for this convention just to test and display polishers, grinders, cutters, etc.

Like I said before… they had everything here.

We mingled and checked out some new pieces of equipment.

Later that evening we met some friends (Bee Acess) for dinner at the Wynn. It’s always a pleasure to see these guys.  We did miss Nicole…

And since it is Vegas, there had to be a show right behind us.

And on my way back to my hotel I had to stop and take a few photos of the displays inside the Wynn.

Most of these are made from thousands and thousands of flowers!  Crazy.  Remember, I’m at the Treasure Island and they don’t have anything like this.

But the did have a pirate ship out front.  So take that Mr. Wynn.

Well, that was all fantastic and I was tired and just wanted to go home.  I could see my hotel across the street (It’s an illusion because you have to walk about a mile to get 3 blocks ) so I took a taxi and had the first of our “Vegas” experiences.

And look who greeted me…  Okay, not that bad but almost.  Ha.

This old oriental man picked me up and just stared at me in the rear view mirror until we hit the first of two long stoplights.  Uggg.

He looked at me and said, “you look berry tired.”  Well, thank you very much, kind sir. And you look old and skeevy.  No, I didn’t say that but the constant barrage of stimuli in Vegas was starting to take its toll on me and I could have.  He kept repeating that I looked tired and could use a “Ma-ssage”.  And it would make me… “Happy…” And as he said happy he took both hands in the air like an exploding volcano.  I kid you not.

“Um, no thanks, I’m fine.”

He just kept repeating over and over.  “No, you look tired, you need ma-ssage”.  Make you…. Happy” (exploding volcano gesture).  Mind you… I only had to go the equivalent of 2 maybe 3 city blocks but because we are in Vegas the stoplights are ten minutes each. (ringing up the cab fare and trapping the customer – me).

I was getting a little upset with our taxi-driving friend.   No… I wanted to sleep and be left alone, away from all of the video, audio, and people madness.  We finally made it the 3 blocks to my hotel where I reached into my pocked and grabbed my wad of bills and tried to hand him a $10 for the trip.

He promptly grabbed the entire wad and tried to take it all.  Excuse me.  I pushed his hands off my cash and said, “Hey, jackass.”  To which he said, “I want that $20 not the $10…”  He got $8.

The following day had more of the same.  Walking… greeting… walking… meeting…walking.  You get the idea.  There were some cool pieces of gear to be seen.

That night we got to eat dinner in a giant art deco piece of (what do you see here?) with some of our suppliers.  This was the craziest looking restaurant I’ve ever seen.  I will say that the food everywhere we went was outstanding.  Vegas really has that down to a science.

I had to take a picture of the food in the giant phallus restaurant… This was Shawn’s steak.  If you don’t know Shawn, well, he’s a fairly big guy and a tiny piece of steak like this is just an appetizer at best.  There were other vegetables and things to fill up his plate but I did have to laugh when it arrived.  Again, the food was fantastic.

We got one chance to slip away and have some fun, since most of us do not gamble.  We scooted off to the House of Blues to see Joe Walsh.  It was a fantastic show.  However, the second of our “Vegas” experiences happened when the HOB establishment said they could get us upgraded to better seats for an additional charge.  It seemed too good to be true and we asked several times.  Well, if it sounds too good to be true then it usually is.  We thought we were trading our  tickets and paying the difference…But in a classic bait and switch move they seated us and then just before the show started came down and said not only would we have to pay for an additional set of tickets but also a big food and drink minimum.  What?  And, of course, the place was full and there was no where else for us to go.  They had us.  Welcome to Las Vegas…

Again.  It was a great show.  Joe and his band killed it.

So let’s recap.  Ran through the airport, walked about 100 miles in 2 days, ate a ton of really tasty food, saw a tremendous amount of equipment, made a few deals, met some new people, saw some familiar faces, had more stimuli than I would ever care to experience again…  Yep.  Sounds like The World of Concrete in Las Vegas was a success.  Everyone had a “Happy” ending.

It’s always fun to get away for a few days but I must say that I was glad to get back home to my quiet house.   I’m sure we will see you right back here again next year for more stories.  And I promised you a shot of the snow covered mountains from the hotel room.  Pretty cool looking.

Say it with me. If you need scaffolding or access call Superior Scaffold today at (215) 743-2200 or log on to www.superiorscaffold.com.

And for our musical numbers today we start with the King.  And I personally love his gospel music and this is so perfect for Las Vegas.  Enjoy.

And of course, we need the Mad Axe man to bring it home…

Superior Scaffold was called upon once again to Bryn Mawr College.  This time we are providing restoration crews access to the facade of the venerable M. Carey Thomas Library.

Known as The Thomas Great Hall, this beautiful building has been designated a National Historic Landmark and has been one of Bryn Mawr College’s most important spaces since it opened in 1902.  It’s a monument to the second president of the college.

Superior Scaffold prides itself on being the best in the business when it comes to erecting scaffolding in and around historic structures without leaving a trace – and we did just that.

This may sound like no big deal but most of the time there is very little access to the site itself and then we have to be careful with the building and landscaping.  Our crews make sure to leave the site just as it was when we got there.

We erected scaffold on both sides of the hall so crews could do a major masonry restoration. Years of hard weather have taken it’s toll on all of the stone and mortar.

We used system scaffold.  It was roughly 110’ long X 5’ wide X 40’ high on both sides.

We also had stair towers for access and Betamax Max Climber 1000 material hoists on both sides.

We placed work decks at each level so crews could get to the windows, stone, parapet and chimney.

Our biggest challenge on this job wasn’t the access to the site or mounting to the building itself but keeping the front entrance open while the work continued.  To do so we had to span the gap using 22’ trusses and then erect the scaffold on top of them.

And for today’s musical number we travel back to 1985…  Something just made me want to hear this today.

This great looking old structure was known as the Bell Telephone Building back in the day.  But in the early 1980’s the government broke up what was one of the largest monopolies in US history.  This effectively took what was the Bell Telephone System and split it into entirely separate companies that would continue to provide telephone service.  They would be known as baby Bells.  But we are here to talk about our suspended scaffold on this Baby Bell Building. Click on that link to see what it looked like as restoration started.

This 17 story high-rise was built in 1915 and showcases that good old fashion American craftsmanship.  We love providing suspended scaffold and overhead protection for these older structures.

This time out, Superior Scaffold provided the swing stages for restoration crews to do a complete exterior restoration from windows to caulking, masonry and woodwork.

We had approximately 10 Altrex suspended work platforms with the hard-working Power Climber, PC1 motors on them.

And today’s musical earworm is really a commercial from the early 90’s…LOL, but it works.

And I wanted to hear the silky smooth sounds of Mr. Nat King Cole.  So enjoy!

This is the house where Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, that all important document that would birth a nation.  Jefferson rented several rooms at the home of Jacob Graff, Jr, a local bricklayer – thus, the one of many names for this house.  And what’s crazy is that it’s a reproduction!  The original structure was built in 1775 and then torn down at some point.  This red-brick house at Seventh and Market streets was reconstructed in 1975.

Superior Scaffold was called in to provide scaffold support and overhead protection so crews could repaint and repair all of the woodwork around the windows, soffits, and fascia, and rake boards and even bargeboards.

This is kind of unique because there are two different types of overhead protection systems.  The first is a system scaffold canopy that runs on the Market Street side.  It was used so it could tuck up in closer to the building and bridge the two oversized windows.  There is a ton of pedestrian traffic on both sides.  And sitting on top of that sidewalk shed is a scaffold decked at every level for easy access.

And on the 7th Street side of the house we have an overhead protection system using frames, (our big 767 Philly frame) with a five level, decked out, system scaffold sitting on top of that.  There was more room for pedestrian traffic on that side of the building.

Years of weather took its toll on the woodwork and restoration crews are doing a fantastic job bringing it back to its former glory.

It’s 2017 people and we are “swinging” for the fences.  Yes, I just said that.  We are just glad that the weather is good and we can keep our clients happy.

We’ve written about our work at the Kennedy House several times before, once for another canopy for some exterior repairs (you can read about it here) and the other time for our emergency services team protecting pedestrians (read about it here).

This time we are here about the swing stages and canopy for the masonry repair and painting going on the exterior of this building.  MPG (Masonry Preservation Group) has been doing a great job diligently bringing the facade of this structure back to its former glory.

We erected an overhead protection system that ran down JFK Blvd from 19th to 20th streets.  Roughly 580 feet long.  It’s constructed using system scaffold and has beautiful colored debris panels on top.

It was erected to protect the pedestrian traffic below as the restoration crews worked high above using several of our Altrex swing stages.

This allowed crews to get at the entire façade easily to affect their repairs and repaint portions of the exterior.

Look at a young Albert!  The physical similarities to our CEO, his son, Guy are staggering.  It’s from Albert’s original vision that Guy was able to continue to grow and build Superior into the customer-centric, quick responsive, scaffold company that it is today.

A big shout out to Miss Cathee at Scaffold & Acess Magazine for her work on the article and featuring us.  And another shout out to the good folks over at Bee Access who thought about us for this article.

We are very proud to be a family owned business that can respond faster, better and more efficiently than any other scaffold company on the market.  

If you need scaffolding, shoring or access call Superior Scaffold today at (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com.

I couldn’t think of a more appropriate music number for today’s post.  Enjoy!
