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 in Philadelphia comes to life!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here’s a rendering from the other end of the project.  If you need access, scaffolding, scaffold or anything just call Tony P (honorary Mayor of Wilmington) and he’ll take care of you.  (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com.

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

eagles, super bowl, philadelphia, scaffolding, scaffold, link,

Superior Scaffold congratulates the Super Bowl LII champion Eagles!

What an unbelievable game it was! And what a season this has been!

philadelphia eagles, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, access, 215 743-2200

I’ll admit I’m normally not a huge football fan but how can you not get fired up watching the Eagles overcome adversity and go on to win the Super Bowl!

What made me an Eagles fan? Well, it started back in October with a special tour through the Link and an opportunity to meet resident badass, defensive end, Brandon Graham.

And it was his strip sack of Tom Brady that pretty much sealed the win!

philadelphia eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, access, 215 743-2200

He’s a super nice guy and one heck of a player.

And then we got a tour of the locker rooms.

I love this shot!

philadelphia eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, scaffolding, scaffold, superior scaffold, access, 215 743-2200

We also got to see the media room and someone got to pretend they were in charge!

And it all culminated with walk down the ramp onto the field with the lights and music cranking. I got so caught up going down the chute I went right out onto the field and almost got tackled and escorted out. Doh.

But the Eagles organization was very cool, realizing that it’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement.

And in a nutshell, that’s how it started and I’ve been an Eagles fan ever since!

Thanks to the Eagles organization who allowed us to run around in the Link. And thanks to Santander bank who set up the event for their clients.

Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them doggies rolling
Rawhide
Rain and wind and weather
Hell bent for leather
Wishing my girl was by my side
All the things I’m missin’
Good victuals, love and kissin’
Are waiting at the end of my ride

It’s our job at Superior Scaffold to keep things rollin’. What do I mean by that? Well, when you have a business smack in the middle of the busiest part of town and you have a complete restoration going on overhead – you don’t want anything to stop. You want to keep those sidewalks open for all of the pedestrian traffic possible.

I will admit I had to look up the term victuals, since it’s just not something you hear much anymore. But every one of those people walking on the sidewalk is going somewhere and some are going to get some good victuals and we need to give them a throughput and protection when they do.

Canopies are a huge part of our business and we do it well. Heck, on this job we also designed and provided the double-wide swing stages or suspended scaffold that masonry crews used while doing a compete exterior renovation on this building at 13th and Market. So, we kept the crews rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ above at the same time we had pedestrians moving below.

This particular overhead protection system features roughly 800 linear feet of system scaffold – wide enough to stampede a whole ton of people through. It’s also tall enough to do some calf roping in – if you had to. AND it’s lit up so you can find your way down that long winding trail of concrete in the jungle of life.

Golly, we’ve also got 4’ debris panels on the top when those doggies are kicking up dust and special tie-downs to keep it mighty secure when those bad fellas role through town.

All-in-all it’s been a hoot and a success. Several trades were able to use our suspended scaffold and our overhead protection system did exactly what it designed to do.

Superior Scaffold – Can’t Touch This!

At first glance, this mixed bag of tricks seems as fresh as a pair of MC Hammer pants. It looks like they used as many different access disciplines as possible to protect and erect a structure. But further examination proves otherwise.

When they decided to erect an apartment complex where the old parking lot used to be they didn’t think they would have to work around one lone structure. And part of the deal was that they couldn’t touch that building at all.

So what do you do? You bust a move and call Superior Scaffold and we come up with a legit solution to get crews access to the facade with out touching the small building right next door.

How – you say?  By needle beaming several 30′ long steel beams through the existing structure and then supporting them with hi-load shoring frames, anchored to the concrete, and spanning directly over the building so it can support the necessary scaffold and masonry materials to complete the job.  Too hype – Can’t touch this!

And then we decided that the safest way to give crews access on the front of the building was to use a swing stage or suspended scaffold.

Crews completed the job without a hitch and the original structure remained untouched in the process. So you see, call a company that’s hyped and tight to get it done right.

So move out of your seat and wave your hands in the air.  Call Superior Scaffold today if you have a hard to access project – (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more samples of our work.  Ask for “Iron” Mike and give him a song or a rhythm and he’ll break it down!

And of course, what time is it?  That’s right.  It’s Hammer time!
