This is one of those serendipitous situations where everything just falls into place. Our estimator, Tony P, was talking to C. Erickson & Sons about a job and they asked if we had an elevator, like a Buck Hoist, for their project at Broad and Walnut. They needed a way to get men and material in and out without using the interior elevators.

“Well, actually we have something better,” said Superior’s Tony P. “We’ve got a TP-2500 transport platform that will let you bring personnel and material up and down without the need of a professional operator. It’s perfect for this type of multipurpose project. The rental is less than an elevator and it’s easier to install.”

He explained how it would work, how much time and money it would save them and just like that, it was done. Up it went at 211 S. Broad St., in Center City.

“It was an absolute job saver,” said Scott Kahan, Project Manager for Erickson. “Everything was great. It was a pleasure working with the entire Superior Scaffold team from the salesman to the installers.”

The car on the platform itself has a modular design that allows it to be adapted to customer’s needs with a variety of car sizes and Erickson chose the largest configuration with almost 13 feet in length and the ability to hold roughly 3300 lbs of material or up to 7 people. It also has three access doors, one in the center and one on either end. The 8’ long version of this platform can carry over 5,000 lbs.

But let’s take a minute to address a couple of unique challenges this job presented us before we even started. First, how do you fit a transport platform that’s 14 feet long on a 10-foot wide sidewalk? That was easy, turn the unit sideways. Which led us to our next big challenge.

How do you rotate a cart, loaded with 12 foot sheets of drywall 90 degrees, 100 feet in the air to push it through a window?

You erect two 15’ run-back platforms literally out over Walnut Street, one hundred feet in the air. That is really pretty cool.

Originally, they only wanted it for two levels but it worked so well they recently added a third.

Because of the architectural design elements, we used system scaffold to build out and away from the building and allowed us to deck in the levels where debris and material needed to be taken in and out. Then we mounted the transport platform directly to the building for a super secure structure.

We also built a loading dock at the bottom with a ramp and cordoned off the sidewalk below at that busy intersection. We added an overhead protection system so the WaWa on the southeast corner could remain open for business while work went on overhead.

We love it when a job just works. And of course there are always a few issues but at Superior we pride ourselves on being ready to solve any problem. Just ask Scott at Erickson. It was a pleasure working with him on this job and helping them bring their project in on time and on budget.

And since this job involved the renovating floors at University of the Arts, Terra Hall, today’s musical number is fitting.

A little more about the job: University of the Arts

3½ floors of Terra Hall at Broad and Walnut are currently being renovated with a $1 million recording studio and space to accommodate music school functions.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Scaffold, scaffolding, scaffolding, rent, rents, scaffolding rental, construction, ladders, equipment rental, scaffolding Philadelphia, scaffold PA, philly, building materials, NJ, DE, MD, NY, renting, leasing, inspection, general contractor, masonry, 215 743-2200, superior scaffold, electrical, HVAC, swing stage, swings, suspended scaffold, overhead protection, canopy, transport platform, lift, hoist, mast climber, access, buckhoist, welsh, conwyn arms

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. _______________

Scaffold, scaffolding, scaffolding, rent, rents, scaffolding rental, construction, ladders, equipment rental, scaffolding Philadelphia, scaffold PA, philly, building materials, NJ, DE, MD, NY, renting, leasing, inspection, general contractor, masonry, 215 743-2200, superior scaffold, electrical, HVAC, swing stage, swings, suspended scaffold, overhead protection, canopy, transport platform, lift, hoist, mast climber, access, buckhoist, welsh, conwyn arms

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.

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.

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)

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

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.

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.

ALH Magazine featured two of Superior Scaffold‘s recent jobs.  The first was our work with Metropolitan Opera House – or Met.  It was quite a large project culminating in a work deck that was approximately 75 feet high.  Click here or on either picture to read the entire article or here to see our original blogpost.
