New addition at Chester County Hospital calls for Superior scaffolding

Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA is embarking on a $45.2 million building project to increase inpatient bed capacity with 72 new private rooms and to install a new, state-of-the-art linear accelerator for the treatment of cancer.

As part of the plan, the Chester County Hospital and Health System called in Superior Scaffold to help work on the 93,000 sq. ft. Tower Project at 701 East Marshall Street.

The scaffolding, constructed on top of the first floor’s roof, allows crews to get to the floors above it to remove the skin (facade) and expose the steel to tie into.  The new addition will be 5 stories tall and as wide as the old section beneath it.

Those black squares you see on the lower roof are temporary coverings for the new steel columns that are underneath them.   “Once the facade is removed, horizontal steel will come out of building and connect to columns coming up and out of those holes,” said Superior estimator, Pat McAndrew.  Superior also provided a 70′ trash chute with a hopper on every level.

  1. Superior Scaffold uses unique earth anchors to hold canopy in place. « scaffoldblog says:

    […] So, not only did we help scaffold the building for the new support steel but we just installed the canopy at the entryway.  In the background, you can see the 5 story steel structure where our scaffolding used to be.  They are making great progress on the new addition at the Chester County Hospital, and we are grateful to be a part of such a unique project.  (See the original blogpost here.)
