We’ve been all over this project and most of our work has seemed to come in and around the giant hole where Penn Tower once stood (and is now the home of the massive Penn Medicine Pavilion).

But this bridge column canopy or overhead protection system at 34th and Convention Center Blvd really stood out. First, because it was on higher ground and second because it was a beautiful piece of work.

Stretching 135’ long by 8’ wide with a 300 lb. per sq/ft rating this canopy ran parallel to Convention Center Boulevard and beneath the pedestrian walkway and new steel for the Pavilion.  We first erected 100′ of canopy and then were called back to add another 35′.

We used bridge columns here to match the giant walkway and overhead protection system we built next to the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology building. You can read about that here.

We also installed 4 foot debris panels and lighting. Client, LF Driscoll, used interlocking Jersey barriers for extra protection on the side facing the street.

This funky building sits on the corner of S. Stockton and E. Front St. I liked how symmetrical it looked. I’m not sure what’s inside but just from the outside it reminded me of one of the old radio buildings from the thirties.

So what was Superior Scaffold doing there? We provided roughly 150 feet of canopy or overhead protection on each side and a swing stage (suspended scaffold) so masonry restoration crews could get to every inch of the façade. They were brick pointing, caulking, cleaning and doing brick replacement.

We used our largest walk-through scaffold frames with steel beams, corrugated aluminum roofing, debris panels, lighting and capped it off with our lovely fluorescent warning banners on both ends.

Too long denying all my crimes.
Face what I deserve.

Lots of indictments lately so I thought this post and song would be fitting. Seems that nobody wants to admit guilt in anything anymore no matter how complicit. What happened to honesty, honor and integrity? Instead, it’s all about how can I cover my own butt and not spend one single day in jail.

Now, we could have a huge philosophical discussion about how wealth and influence tends to sway the judicial system but I won’t go there. Let’s just hope that all of these people who “did absolutely nothing wrong” get their comeuppance from the big fella.

The reason we are talking about this job is because Superior Scaffold was brought in by Mara Restoration to provide access to the entire façade of the Clarkson S. Fisher Federal Building and Courthouse for exterior restoration and window refurbishing.

It’s a great looking job. I have to hand it to the crew who erected a gorgeous system scaffold, decked it in at every level, added debris netting, a Maxial track material hoist, and built a beautiful canopy and stair tower.

But like any good court case, it’s the challenges they had to overcome to get a conviction or an acquittal. These challenges are why we are writing today. You see, we weren’t able to store any excess material anywhere on the site so the crew had to calculate the exact amount of equipment needed to have a full day’s work and no more.   That is no easy feat given the size and scope of the job.

Just calculating the exact material for the canopy around the front door alone took some mighty fine estimation. And it was the same for the dismantle. Any material taken down needed to be removed off site by days end.

It’s these small details that make me appreciate the talent and skill of our crew. Kudos guys. It’s part of the reason we have cool jobs to write about.  Superior is always proud to help in the restoration of these older, classic buildings.

This isn’t a big job but it has a very important distinction. If you look closely at the pictures you will see Superior’s Safety Director, Shawn MacDonald, doing a post installation inspection on this overhead protection system (canopy).

Now, why is this important? Well, it’s part of our safety protocol and it insures the utmost safety for the contractors, subs and pedestrians.

On the surface, this is a regular system scaffold canopy with debris panels and interior lighting but at it’s core it’s a pedestrian safety super structure. These things are made to withstand a tremendous amount of stress from all angles.

Swarthmore College, Hicks Hall mural removal

Most of the time when people tell you “out with the old and in with the new” it’s a good thing. Technology has advanced, building practices are more efficient, materials are better – you name it. And they are usually right. But sometimes when you are making that switch something from the past grabs you and holds on. Maybe it’s a memory from an era long gone or maybe the craftsmanship is unparalleled or just maybe there is something unique and one of a kind about it. Which is what we have here.

You see, while Swarthmore College was preparing to demo an old building and construct a new one they realized that they had some very unique pieces of art in Hicks Hall that could never be duplicated. So they decided to move them to a new building that actually houses the drawing and painting studio. Fantastic. But these fresco’s, painted by James Egleson (class of 1929) in 1938 were on plaster and there was no easy way to get them down and out safely. This project had an incredibly high level of planning and design, to make sure they weren’t damaged in the move, long before we got involved.

Superior Scaffold was called to not only erect a canopy in between the two buildings, to protect pedestrian traffic, as the new one went up and the old one came down but they also needed a way to get the giant pieces of plaster out of the building and down to the ground where they could be transported to their new resting place.

We used system scaffold to first erect the 140 long overhead protection system.

Then we added three more stories on top of the canopy and decked it out with plank and plywood so the conservators from Materials Conservation LLC. could get access to the murals. The crew from Materials Conservation then moved the art through an enlarged window and then carted it down to the end where it was then taken off with a Lull.

One unique feature of the scaffold was that we couldn’t tie into the side of the building in all of the places so we built back up towers that essentially make the scaffolding wider at the base and become push anchors.

The murals were done on plaster in 30’s by an alumni of the college who studied with Mexican muralists at the time of WPA projects. And since they were on plaster the utmost care had to be used to get them out and down. There were 4 walls worth and they ended up taking them down in sections. The Biggest was 11’ X 7’, the rest were approximately 7’ X 5’. They installed an aluminum honeycomb epoxy material on the back and a mesh on top and then crated them.

In his own words, “The frescoes at Swarthmore depict conditions and concepts out of the life of our times in America. Painted in a building devoted to the teaching of engineering science, out of which has developed industrialization as one of the orienting conditions of modern life, most of the work deals with the effects of that condition upon human beings, ourselves and our fellow-men. The murals do not pretend to give a factual account of those effects, nor to tell a story. Rather they are a dramatization of the human values involved, of the people of our times in the struggles and aspirations that constitute the fundamental realities of a civilization and a culture.”

Superior used great care to make this transition as seamless as possible. The job went just as planned and the frescoes will enjoy life in their new building.

The Metropolitan Opera House or Met located at 858 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia (yes, Philly has a Metropolitan – not just NY) is undergoing a $56 Million restoration as a new Live Nation concert venue.

The beautiful building has been sitting vacant for years. The 39,200-square foot theater was built in 1908 by Oscar Hammerstein I and called the Philadelphia Opera House. When it first opened in it was home to the Philadelphia Opera Company and sat some 4000 people as the largest venue of its kind in the world. In 1910 Hammerstein sold it to the Metropolitan Opera of New York and ever since it’s been known as the Metropolitan or Met.

The large building that takes up a full city block at Broad and Poplar Streets will be converted into a 3,500 person venue. The main theater will be transformed for seated and standing-only general-admission concerts; however, the opera house also contains a number of smaller rooms that could be used as additional performance spaces or be converted into lounges.

The building boasts incredible decorative artwork, ceilings, walls, balconies and architecture and will open in all its renovated glory in December 2018.

Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Domus, Inc. to provide access to the entire interior and exterior of the building. And what an enormous job this is.

Let’s start with the interior of the theater itself. This gigantic theater was a real challenge because of the slope elevation where the seats and walkways go. We had to get multiple restoration crews to the ceiling and all sides of the theater.

To do that we used system scaffold that was 120 feet wide by 162 feet long with a deck that sat just below the ceiling at approximately 75 feet high.

We also provided work decks at every 6’6” level to touch the exterior walls. We had two stair towers, one on each side, to give everyone access to their working position.

The equipment was loaded in from access doors near the stage and carted into place where crews then erected the scaffold. To assist, we enlisted the help of a 1000 pound BetaMax Maxial track or ladder material hoist. The Maxial Track scaffold hoist is the safest, fastest, scaffold delivery system available and is adaptable quick and builds with you. You can mount it inside or out and is flexible enough to work perfectly with this configuration.

This enormous scaffold got painting, masonry, carpenter crews, and more up the to the ornate ceiling where they could do their work.

We also installed scaffold on three sides of the building and debris netted them in for safety. Let’s start with Broad Street since it’s the front of the theater.

We are providing access to the façade, which includes the illustrious balconies, and also to the parapet as well.

We also installed a 245 lineal foot canopy out front for pedestrian protection. It’s 10 feet wide X 8 feet high and has parapet walls on the perimeter of the canopy. It’s also anchored to the sidewalk, engineered and rated at 300 lbs.

The scaffold is 245 lineal ft. x 4 feet wide and 65 feet high with work decks every 6’-6” and a top deck approx. 4 feet below top of wall.

Let’s move to the scaffolding on Poplar Street. It’s 165 lineal ft X 4 feet wide with work decks every 6’6” for access and a top deck that sits 4 feet below the top of the wall. There is also a stair tower to access the work decks and black debris netting all the way around.

I told you this was quite a job. And we have an almost identical set up on Carlisle St. Unfortunately, that wasn’t erected when I took the photos. And the back of the building is to get several of our suspended scaffold or swing stage units for renovation. Again, they were not up at the time I took the photos.

With this renovation the hope is that the North Broad Street corridor will just get better and better and attract people from all walks of life into the area. It’s all part of the revitalization effort the city and developers have embarked on.

In its prior life this venue was an opera house, a movie theater, and ballroom and in its last incarnation was a church. The Holy Ghost church congregation still holds stake in the theater and will continue to hold Sunday services at the theater when it reopens in December.

Send me your money – Overhead protection and suspended scaffold at 1900 Market St.

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.

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.

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)

This is one beautiful job – you can’t deny.  When you see it you just know it is quality, love, and beauty.

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.

We even built it up and over the garage entrance.

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.
