We have been all over the exterior of the Firestone Library, on the Princeton campus, doing renovations so this time I thought I’d take you inside.

Just like our work on the outside, Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Massimino Building Corp. to give access to the entire ceiling area at the entrance of the library.

Crews needed to demo the old ceiling to replace and upgrade ductwork directly above the entryway and lobby.

The biggest challenge was that the ceiling encompassed the entire entrance/exit of the library and it had to remain open for students the entire time work was being done.

The other challenge was that our work deck also needed to be outside of the entryway with as few legs as a possible so people could get through the doors easily.

How did our guys accomplish this? By erecting a work deck in two sections roughly 40’ wide by 56’ long with long trusses spread between system scaffold legs to distribute the weight.

This allowed the legs to be put strategically for the least bit of interference with pedestrian traffic.

The work deck was skip plank and plywood and allowed crews to get to every inch of the ceiling for work.

Here you can see the new ceiling going up. It’s a super sturdy and enclosed work space.

We are proud of the work we’ve done in and around the Firestone Library and for Princeton University. This was another job that went off on time and on budget. If you are in the area, I urge you to stop by and check out this historic building. It’s really quite something to see.

And I couldn’t resist today’s musical number. It’s from Animal House and has more to do with college than a library but it’s classic.

And since we are talking about a library – how about this classic clip from Star Trek.

Unique Scaffold Applications, SEPTA Cantilever, Temple Rock Wall

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

Now each of these could be its very own post but I thought I’d combine them into one article of cool scaffold jobs. The idea is to show two interesting applications for scaffolding that you might not have considered.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator, septa

Let’s start with this cantilever work deck at the newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center (originally the Margaret-Orthodox-Arrott station and formerly named Margaret-Orthodox station). Try saying that five times really fast.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

It is an elevated railway station on SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line, located above the intersection of Frankford and Oxford Avenues, in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

As you can see from the pics we had to erect scaffold inside a decorative steel tower that would allow crews to get to the upper level so they could install 500lb pieces of glass. But the unique part is how our guys had to design a cantilvered work deck out from underneath the structure to allow the crew to work above. It was 7’ wide X 8’ long X 33’ high system scaffold with one top deck level with 6’ side brackets. Pretty cool.

We came back and did the same thing at a lower elevation and then a complete second tower. The client was US Glass & Metal working for SEPTA.

The second – is a job we did around the rock climbing wall at Temple University Pearson McGonigle Hall. It’s part of their newly expanded recreational facility.

Patrons pass through the large glass entryway to see 12000 sq/ft retail space and the rock wall.

Superior was called upon to build a scaffold up and over a large section of climbing wall so crews could install/finish drywall over the top. It’s unique because our crew used system scaffold to build up to the top of the wall and then stepped over with one of our legs and rested it on top of the wall itself. They then erected a work deck spanning over the section of climbing wall so crews could easily work close to the ceiling.

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.

It’s a mystery to me. Scaffolding Conwyn Arms, Bryn Mawr, PA

I do know a Bronwyn… so I had to hit the google and see just what is the definition of Conwyn. Here’s what I found. _______________

Yep. Nothing. I couldn’t even get to the root of the word. So I looked up Bronwyn and this is what it said: English language feminine given name, which is an anglicized variant of the Welsh name Bronwen, meaning bron (“breast”) and gwen (“white, fair, blessed)”.

Left with really no answer as to what exactly Conwyn Arms meant, I turned Superior Scaffold’s resident nerd, estimator, history buff, and garbage collector, Pat, to see what he knew. And I’ll be danged if he didn’t have something. He said that that entire area was settled by the Welsh in the 1700’s and the “wyn” would certainly be of that ancestry.

He also pointed out that in Radnor, PA there are several monuments to their homeland erected off the Blue Route and E. Lancaster Ave; particularly a stone dragon and a stone hut. Wow. Now, we have something to go on. He was darn close. It wasn’t a dragon but a Griffin inspired by paintings in the British Isles, and the hut was a Cairn, inspired by shepherd’s cairns high in the rocky Welsh hills.

But what about Conwyn? We still have don’t have a definitive on that. Pat did find a Conwy Wall around a Welsh castle but again there isn’t an N at the end. So the mystery continues. We’ve got a call into the owners to see if they just made up the name or if there is some historical significance. We will keep you posted.

What we do know is that the Conwyn Arms is an apartment complex on the main line that was in need of masonry repair and restoration. Mara Restoration called Superior Scaffold to provide complete access to the façade so crews could repoint, repair, restore and clean the existing exterior.

We provided a five-story system scaffold with a ladder and decked it in at every level and then added a ramp or gangway from the parking lot to the work area. We also provided a material hoist in the form of a Patriot 1000 to get material up to the crew.

The job went off without a hitch and the building looks fantastic. I hope we can get to the bottom of the name mystery. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for these Welsh landmarks off the Blue Route and E. Lancaster Area. And look for the blue town seal elements on the bridge overpass as you’re heading East or West on Lancaster Ave.

Love, love, love… All you need is Love. Scaffolding St. Vincent de Paul Church

I saw a quote today that said, “I have decided to stick with love…Hate is too great a burden to bear,” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and it made me think. If you let hate build up over time it becomes toxic and can cause dis-ease in the body, as Wayne Dyer used to say, and destroy your health. Therefore the person we hurt the most with hate, resentment, grudges and dislike is ourselves. We are not always treated fairly or with respect, even by the ones we love but when we carry anger, hate or hurt we become no better than the people or person we feel has hurt us. We can’t control their behavior only they can do that but we don’t need to be crippled by it either.

HATE and LOVE have the same amount of letters so why don’t we choose LOVE instead of hate. I have been trying to eliminate that word from my vocabulary for a variety of reasons, especially when it comes to other humans. Why put out that energy for anyone? You can hate cream of corn or brussels sprouts but another human? Why? None of us are perfect but we are perfectly human, right? You can dislike the way someone behaves or mistreats you but to hate them isn’t very divine. Putting that energy out into the universe doesn’t do you or anyone any good. And trust me, it does come back around.

This post came about when I saw the people in and around Saint Vincent de Paul Church in Germantown, PA. They have the most amazing support services for everyone in the community. They were so loving and caring at a time when this nation seems to be so divided.

And then seeing the actual work being done to get this beacon of hope back to its full glory made me think that it was a great metaphor for the coming year.

And, as crazy as it sounds, it was our scaffolding that got crews to the very top to make this project shine on.

Seeing this image reminded me that for so many of us in life or business it’s easy to harbor resentment or dislike someone or for things that happened in the past but it’s better to forgive and understand that we are all human and who knows what was going on with the other person. Knowing that you approach another human being with love and respect and understanding while extending an olive branch is really the first step to learning about and loving yourself. And if, that realization mends a fence or lifts a spirit or builds a bridge then good on you, but start with love and end with love. Your world, and the entire world, will be a better place.

So what does this have to do with scaffolding and this job? Just that we, at Superior Scaffold, really pride ourselves on only putting out good energy in every aspect of our business. We feel it makes for a better workplace and thus better employees and ultimately better work for you, the customer. And isn’t that what it’s all about – the best work for the customer.

And in this new year, I think we can all benefit from a little love. So remember, the next time you find yourself feeling resentment, anger or hurt towards a client or customer or loved one, really look at what you dislike and remember what you learned or from that other person.  And then forgive and embrace a new mentality.  We are all on this planet for a short time so let’s work to make it a better place.

As Dr. King said, “To love is to forgive and love is the most precious gift given to us. We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.  He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love…Forgiveness does not mean ignoring what has been done or putting a false label on an evil act.  It means, rather, that the evil act no longer remains as a barrier to the relationship.  Forgiveness is a catalyst creating the atmosphere necessary for a fresh start and a new beginning.  It is the lifting of a burden or the canceling of a debt…There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”  (Loving your Enemies – Sermon – Christmas, 1957, Dexter Avenue Baptist Church)

Say, I love you! Then say, I love myself as many times a day as needed or pop into a place like St. Vincent De Paul Church (at 109 E Price St, Philadelphia, PA 19144) and feel the love.

A little about the job: We had a stair tower out of system scaffold to get restoration crews up to the dome and cross. We then had 6 more levels of system scaffold decked in to give complete access around the dome and provide and safe and stable work platform. Crews were repairing & replacing metal, patching and painting the dome and cross.

Lift me up, Scaffolding Alumni Hall, Villanova University

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

It’s our job at Superior Scaffold to lift people up; not only physically but emotionally as well. Clients will tell you that our crews are all about solving problems and being upbeat and positive even in the face of adversity. It’s why we have the best guys in the business.

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

Well, this job was no different. We had to provide crews access to the dome and cross on top of Alumni Hall, in the heart of the campus at Villanova University.

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

Alumni Hall is the oldest building on Villanova’s campus. It was originally constructed in 1848. It serves as a great backdrop for events on the Campus Green and Mendel Field.

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

Villanova University is a Roman Catholic institution of higher learning founded by the Order of Saint Augustine in 1842. Within this suburban campus close to Philadelphia, Villanova provides a comprehensive education rooted in the liberal arts; a shared commitment to the Augustinian ideals of truth, unity and love; and a community dedicated to service to others.

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

And in this day and age, who can’t appreciate the Augustinian ideals of truth, unity and love? Maybe another gigantic institution should revisit these? Did I just type that? Well, am I really that far off? Just like Villanova University, Superior crews embody these ideals and also help lift people every day.

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

Just look at this beautiful scaffold. Don’t get me wrong, the dome and cross are works of art too but what our guys did to get painting crews to the top is magnificent. The scaffolding is system scaffold approximately 50’ high up to the dome and the diameter around the dome was roughly 30’ by 25’ high. We erected the stair tower and then bridged across to the roof where crews built the scaffold around the dome and decked it in at every level. I just love way our guys can build all around a delicate object without touching it.  

scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, villanova university, philadelphia, PA, rental, access, work platform, masonry, painter

We gave crews access to the entire dome and cross and in turn they really knocked it out. We are proud of our relationship with Villanova University and always support the Wildcats. We thank everyone who has had a part in this job. We can’t wait for the official unveiling in the upcoming weeks.

Superior Scaffold does its part to help the rejuvenation of Wilmington’s central business district. We provided our TP-2500 transport platform and several mast climbing units to help BPGS construct this $75 million, 231 unit luxury apartment complex in downtown.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

The Residences at Mid-Town Park, located at 820 N. Orange St, are getting high end amenities such as 12,000 square feet of retail space, a 511 space parking garage, demonstration kitchens and dog-washing stations in each unit. The Residences also will feature an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and screening room.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

It’s all in the plan to create change in the struggling central business district to where people both live, work and play on Market Street. The once vibrant area is now getting a much needed shot in the arm with housing, restaurants and offices.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

Superior was brought in not only to give crews access with our multiple, heavy duty MC-3615 mast climbers but also provide equipment and personnel to each floor using our new TP-2500 transport platform. The combination of the two provided the necessary firepower to keep this job running on time and on schedule.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

Our transport platform went in first to provide crews and equipment to each floor. The Superior TP 2500 is a versatile, dual purpose, rack and pinion transport platform designed for the safe transportation of material and personnel both inside and outside of buildings.  The modular design allows our transport platforms to be adapted to customer’s needs with a variety of car sizes, loading capacities (up to 5,000 lbs), and variable speed configurations from 29.9 FPM to 80 FPM. It was brought in because of its versatility and the ability to safely deliver lots of equipment to each floor. And as the building grew we were able to add sections of the mast to get it to the new floors.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

The mast climbers were brought in to help the crews get access to install the new exterior wall panel system. It’s a pretty cool and innovative system. Take a look at the photos. We used the MC-3615 mast climbers because they are able to carry as much as 8,000 pounds on one unit and are perfect for this type of application. We chose these units so the crews could make repeated lifts up and down with the heavy sections of panels to be installed on the exterior of the building. Some traditional scaffold was used on the opposite side where crews were doing to lighter façade work.

All told we had 6 mast climbers around this two building structure all working simultaneously to complete it. It’s not the biggest project but given the amount of space and time we had to work with it’s a very cool building with awesome potential. And it gave us the perfect opportunity to use our brand new transport platform.

We have to give a shout out to the honorary Mayor of Wilmington, our very own estimator, Anthony Pini. For twenty-five years he has been helping the companies in this area with their access solutions. And with the new revitalization he is keeping us jumping and has earned his namesake – Mayor of Wilmington. All kidding aside, Superior is proud to be working with the Buccini/Pollin Group, one of Wilmington’s biggest developers, on this two-year project.

The revitalization of this historic area is something to see. We know this luxury apartment complex is just the beginning for further growth, change and development in the area.

And for our musical number we are going way back to 1985 – I couldn’t resist – as cheesy as it is.  Ha.
And yes, I’m back!

Multiple canopies at The Gallery Mall redevelopment, now known as the Fashion District Philadelphia

Hailed as the epicenter of Center City’s revival back in 1977, The Gallery Mall is finally getting its recognition as the preeminent shopping experience in downtown Philadelphia. It opened to the tune of $105 million; big bucks back in the day. But forty years has gone by and with it so has the sheen and promises on this old structure.

Jump forward to right now as three city blocks and roughly 1,000,000 square feet of redevelopment are occurring.  And when it’s all said and done it will be the largest retail repositioning project in the region.  Once called The Gallery Mall, developers are re-branding it as the Fashion District Philadelphia.  Sounds much better than the Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia doesn’t it?  It will be a more expansive mix of retail, entertainment and dining.  And it will finally give the mall the accolades that were supposed materialize all those years ago.  There are some great photos of the redevelopment here.

We don’t get involved with the politics of adding movie theaters in favor of outlet shops.  We just provide the best access and overhead protection systems and do our part as seamlessly as possible.  Superior Scaffold provided six, yes six, canopies around this three block area down Market St. from 8th to 10th and two of them were almost 400 feet long.

We had to do most of the erecting at night when there was a minimum of both pedestrian and automobile traffic.  It’s nice to see some night shots, courtesy of Mr. Pat McAndrew, our crack estimator.  (this is his job).

The overhead protection systems or canopies sat on top Jersey barriers.  The customer provided police for traffic control while our guys did their work.

Each canopy was constructed using system scaffold, steel and aluminum beams, corregated metal roofing, U-heads, cement anchors, lighting, debris panels, and even debris netting on one side.  I believe our engineer even added a few structural elements to give each more stability as they sat on top of the Jersey barriers.

We recently did a GBCA (General Building Contractors Association) hardhat tour and it’s quite an impressive redevelopment from GC ‘s Shoemaker/Skanska.  Here’s a link to that blogpost.

And you know the deal.  Treat everyone the way you want to be treated, tip your wait staff and call Superior Scaffold at (215) 743-2200 when you need scaffolding, scaffold, access or overhead protection!  Those are the three most important things in life.  😉  Oh, and ask for Pat – he’ll take you shopping.
