Now, if you’ve ever owned a white car you know what a royal pain it is to keep clean in the winter. That white paint shows every piece of dust, dirt, and grime that you pick up driving around.

So, imagine if you are a white building, built in 1913, 7 to 8 stories tall, smack dab in the middle of hustling, bustling Philadelphia. There are cars, buses, trucks, trains and pedestrians all kicking up dust around your base. And when the wind and rain kick up all of that debris floats upwards and sticks right to your sides. And just like your white automobile this giant structure gets dirty.

So every now and again you have to give her a bath to get her back to her former glory. And that’s just what happened here. Superior Scaffold was called to the iconic Penn Mutual Life Insurance Building (or Penn Mutual) to help out.

In order to get crews up to do the power washing necessary Superior Scaffold had to install some overhead protection (canopy) for the pedestrians below. This was a good sized canopy too – traveling from 6th and Walnut around to 6th and St. James.

It was a pretty level surface so crews used heavy duty frames to build the sidewalk shed. You can seen in the pics we’ve also got screw jacks and base plates, aluminum beams, U heads, our glorious red debris panels, and our wonderful yellow tripping hazard banners.

This is a good sized canopy and it helped crews get this old building back to her former glory.
