First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, built in 1872 (at 21st & Walnut), needed a complete exterior renovation and the good people at Mara were just the ones to git ‘er done.

They called Superior Scaffold to help them rock and roll the love all around this beautiful structure. It was complicated but nothing our backline badass builders couldn’t handle. We used system scaffold and decked it out at just about every level. Then we netted it for protection.

LIFE IS GOING TO THROW IT AT YOU, PEOPLE. YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES – EITHER STAY ON THE GROUND AND LET THEM WIN OR GET BACK UP AND TAKE ANOTHER STEP! YOUR CHOICE.

I could tell you about many obstacles that could have kept most crews down – but not ours. They are the unsung heroes behind the scenes. They come in, keep their heads down, walk through the fire and make it back again. They take that extra step and keep taking it on to the next job. Just think how far you can go with that attitude!

Normally, what you get to see is the exoskeletal remains that support a small village of people working on the building.

Art and Scaffold blend at Grounds For Sculpture, Hamilton Township, NJ

It’s awesome when I get to bring you stories off the beaten path. Most people don’t think art or beauty when they look at system scaffold. It tends to be a more utilitarian piece of equipment. But in the right hands it can be just as beautiful as a Rodin or a Donatello or even a Michelangelo.

Okay, maybe that’s a stretch…but look at what the artists at Grounds for Sculpture had us create for their exhibition Interference Fringe | Tallur LN

Ms. Faith McClellan had a vision and we were honored to help her carry it out. She had called several scaffold companies but none knew how to handle her ideas. “It was tough finding someone who could do what we wanted. I was happy to find your company,” she said.

And we, at Superior, love this kind of out of the box kind of challenge.

It was roughly 10 feet high with 2 levels. It was an odd shape roughly 28’ X 30’ in length. Most of the bays contained artwork by artist Tallur LN.

Only 3 of the bays were for personnel or visitors to view the installation. Those were on the top level. That level was decked solid with plywood for a smooth walking surface and had toe board and guardrails.

It was accessed via a stair tower made of system scaffold.

Grounds For Sculpture did the initial design but our team modified it where needed to work with their display. “The install team was fun to work with,” said McClellan. And we certainly love to hear that.

The installation will be open through January 5, 2020. It’s a wonderful display and we were proud to have been a part. It’s our little scaffold masterpiece – lol – to go along with their 42 acres of beautiful art! That’s right – a 42 acre sculpture park and museum in Hamilton, NJ.

Tommy can you hear me? Shoring parking garage at ACME Markets

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

How do you help a customer that needs to support the top deck of a parking garage while they repair a cut tension cable and repave?

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

You do what super Superior Scaffold estimator Tommy (can you hear me) Creighton did and that’s erect three system scaffold shoring towers to support the structure. Holy moly, you try saying that sentence three times really fast.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

The real challenge of this job was making sure that the areas that needed support were shored up so the folks at Structural Maintenance Systems could do their work. Thanks to Alternate Design Solutions for their calculations to make sure we did just that. Now, I know what you are all thinking… Given that we are learning Tommy is a savant or even a genius why didn’t he just do it?

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

Well, truthfully, he had other things to worry about like how to keep Keith Moon sitting upright on the drum thrown (no easy task, I might add), and figuring out how to lay out these towers so that delivery trucks could still get in and out to make their daily rounds.

“How do you think he does it? (I don’t know.) What makes him so good?”

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

Mission accomplished (for the towers) failed miserably with Keith Moon. Well, one outta’ two ain’t bad. OMG.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

So what did we learn from this job? Well, Tommy not only heard but he listened.

“He stands like a statue
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean”

He translated what the client needed into usable, pliable, materials and solutions. BAM! And with his “crazy flipper fingers” he and his intuition put together a mighty fine job. He’s still the “Bally table king”.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

And you thought he was deaf, dumb and blind. Heck, we all did. This guy has mad skills. He’s truly a Wizard – of some sorts.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

When you need shoring, support, access, scaffolding or a good rock opera – call Tommy at (215) 743-2200 today and let him show you what he can accomplish with just his sense of smell. I promise he won’t show up with his Roger Daltrey, open shirted, Davey Crockety, tassled, fringed jacket contraption (unless you request it).

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

And you all knew it was coming. I fooled no one with this post. Okay maybe some…but “you won’t get fooled again” (not this album – I just had to do it) – this first clip is epic.

Now, here’s what you all were waiting for.

Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish – Wahoo’s, Swings, Overhead Protection System & Canopy Extravaganza

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

I love it when a client takes something that might not really belong at their location and makes it their own.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

That’s just what the good people at Wahoo’s on Chestnut Street did. Life gave them tilapia and they turned it into tuna.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

Look at how they added their own decorative touches.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

Now, this wasn’t a walk in the park for our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, either. Watts Restoration was doing a total revamp of the exterior of building at 3180 Chestnut St. and needed a way to keep the pedestrians and the customers at the outdoor dining area safe while they worked high above on the many suspended scaffold rigs.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

A 200 foot long canopy down the sidewalk did the trick for the pedestrian traffic.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

That was built using system scaffold with steel and aluminum beams, overhead lighting and debris panels.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The real challenge was the outdoor dining area. This required something out of the ordinary. Bob sat down with Watts and the restaurant owner, ate his taco, looked around… and then devised a system scaffold roughly 50’ X 50’ and 14’ high that would cover the entire dining area.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The challenge was how cover the entire area and allow customers to eat outside during the restoration process. He used trusses, system scaffold, steel beams and the longest aluminum beams we had – and voilà.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The most creative part came in the form of tying the scaffold down so it could withstand high winds. To do that, he used giant cement weight blocks (or dead man) and then boxed them in with scaffold and then put netting around them so customers wouldn’t even notice. Take a closer look at this photo.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

And then the client put giant banners on the guardrail at the top to give it their own touch.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

Mighty creative solutions on both accounts if I do say so myself.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

When you need scaffold, scaffolding, swings, access, fish tacos, McAndrews, or creative solutions call “The King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian today and he will take care of you. Visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more info.

It’s only fitting that our musical selection today takes your some place tropical. Enjoy.

And I just couldn’t resist throwing this in as a bonus video.

Superior Scaffold provided the intricate scaffolding ramp at the Penn Museum to get the priceless, 3,000-year-old, 25,000 pound Sphinx of Ramses II to its new location 250 feet away.

It’s not everyday that you get a call to construct a ramp to move one of the world’s rarest objects 250 feet to its new exhibit location. And it’s even rarer when you have to take that 25,000 pound statue outside, through a window, across a courtyard and then back in through another window.

Superior’s crew the day of the move. Jim Anderson, Drew Watson and Matt Mahoney.

Quite the challenge if I may say so myself. But the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has used us on some other very delicate items (read about it here) so they had the confidence that we could deliver the goods.

Each piece of scaffold equipment had to be walked in because there was very little access to the courtyard.

Our crew shored up the floor beneath the giant Sphinx with hi-load frames and post shores, just as security measure, in preparation for the move to the exit ramp.

We then built an exit ramp out of system scaffold because we had height restrictions to elevate the Sphinx enough to get it through the window.

Concurrently, they removed a large window and opened the wall a bit so it would fit through the opening.

The outside ramp was constructed using hi-load shoring frames to hold the weight of the stone beast.

We started with wood sills on the entire run over the dirt/grass followed by steel beams and then a variety of hi-load shoring frames down the entire 250ft run.

Those frames had U-heads and steel beams crossed with aluminum beams then topped with solid plank and then ¾” plywood.

The plywood was then covered by a special surface that would help the air dollies float beneath the Sphinx. We also installed an elaborate maze of guardrails or stanchions along the entire route.

It took some creative layout to position our shoring frames around several pipes at the back end of the ramp.

Another window was removed to get the Sphinx into its new resting place.

And finally, we built another deck or loading platform out of system scaffold on the inside at the other end of the long ramp to receive the giant stone carving.

The Sphinx was first hoisted onto our ramp using a hydraulic lift and placed onto 4 air dollies that used compressed air and essentially floated it off the ground allowing crews to push it the entire distance.

This is the first time it had seen light since it was moved into the museum back in 1926, when the gallery was built around it. (see the pic from the museum’s website by clicking here).

The red granite, or stone of kings, as it was called, sparkled in the sunlight.

The Sphinx is a lion with a human head and represents the power of the Egyptian king. It is carved out of a single block of red granite.

Alternate Design Solutions did the engineering on this job and they did magnificent work. John at ADS was given the weight and dimensions of the Sphinx and used soil compression test measurements to calculate the size and weight of the platform/ramp needed to make the move.  The resulting platform is something to behold.

Once to the other side of courtyard, there was only 1.5 inches of clearance on either side of the new opening for the stone statue to slide in between onto our second loading platform.

As a precaution we shored up the floor beneath the entry point as well using 20 kip shores. Penn Museum had a new floor designed and poured just to accommodate the weight of the ancient object in its new display.

The entire move went off as planned and it was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are thankful that the Penn Museum trusted Superior Scaffold with this priceless object.

This is a pretty cool job for lots of reasons. We had to use system scaffold to reach each level of this six-story building and then deck it in as a sort of landing platform for crews to get their materials in through windows on each floor.

To make it just a little more challenging, we mounted the mast for the transport platform directly to the building on one side and in between the scaffold to the building on the other!

It was a super creative solution to get the best use out of the large car size so sheets of drywall could be transported easily. It also allowed for access to all 3 doors on the transport platform.  In this configuration, 3,300 lbs of material or 7 men can be transported.

Crews are doing a total remodel of the inside units (kitchens, bathrooms, etc) and needed a way to get material inside the building at each floor.

This was once one of the premiere apartment buildings built before the great depression. Constructed in 1928 this six-story, L- shaped steel frame building is sheathed in cinder block and faced with light tapestry bricks. It features cast stone trimmings with a classically styled parapet.

Tony P took things a step further by building an elevated landing platform so equipment could be loaded on and off at two elevations and then he netted the lower level so it would be safer for everyone on the job.

He also put up netting on the surrounding fence to keep this project as non-invasive as possible for the day care next door.

He went even further by mounting the power box on the adjacent wall and then using a piece of scaffold to carry the power cable up and over the walkway keeping it safe and out of the way.

“What an incredible piece of equipment. It worked like a dream and saved us time and money on this resto,” said foreman, Hank Newburn of Ingerman Construction.  “And Tony P went above and beyond to accommodate us.” We love to hear that at Superior. Glad we could be of service.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced.

You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures.

When it opened in 1939, 2601 Parkway was a premier place to live. Archtectural Forum Magazine reported that with over 500 units, it was the third-largest apartment building in the United States and the first large residence of this scale in Philadelphia. The thirteen-story, three-tiered building featured an elegant restaurant, a beauty parlor, a florist, and other hotel amenities. It was one of the first multi-use buildings in Philadelphia.

In order to get masonry crews safely to the entire façade of this interestingly shaped building, Superior Scaffold had to provide a combination of scaffold, suspended scaffold and mast climber units.  Let’s talk about the Fraco mast climbing units first.

The old building’s power grid couldn’t provide enough electricity for a standard mast climber units so estimator Tony P recommended these gas powered Fraco units instead. Not only were they wide and stable enough to handle the crew and material to do a full masonry restoration but they also came with a crane arm that allowed material to be hoisted directly onto the unit itself.

The suspended scaffold or swing stages were the perfect choice to get crews into the recessed areas of the façade.

System scaffold was used to create an overhead protection system or canopy for the safety of everyone passing beneath – especially the occupants of the building.

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.

Superior Scaffold tackles difficult Christiana Hospital Expansion in Newark, DE

Anyone who has been through an injury or watched a loved one struggle through a disease knows the incredible patience, love and support everyone must have. And this is especially true when trying to diagnose and treat someone. It takes patience as doctors experiment with treatments they have used in the past and patients see how their bodies react to those medications or modalities.

Hospitals are an interesting mix of emotions for me. You see I’ve spent a fair amount of time in them. On one hand you have the very western medicine approach to saving, preserving, longing a life or repairing a body – albeit sometimes in a very clinically carbon copy, practicing medicine approach but at the same time you have these amazingly smart doctors and nurses who, when pushed, all want the same thing: a cure, a solution, a better way to help their patients.

I think that like all of us we can settle into a routine and just do our job without searching out the best alternative, the best methodology for the patient. And thus we get what I call repetitive or insane healthcare where the cookie cutter solution doesn’t work (for everyone). So every now and then someone needs to come shake the box, turn it upside-down, inside out, rip it apart to get everyone to rethink the obvious, then and only then can real change happen. Actually listening to the patient is key. And if that person is tuned into their body they will help give the doctor the solution that is optimal for them.

In essence, this is what we offer our clients. We aren’t saving lives like doctors or actors (for Guy – ha) but we do keep people alive when we erect scaffold projects that have hundreds of people, trades, and equipment on them. They have to meet the strictest safety guidelines to protect everyone on the job.

And just like a doctor seeing a patient – we have to look at each job individually and come up with the best solution for our client (patient). If you were to look at this job on the outside it might appear standard fair but that’s not the case. You can see how awesome it looks with our red frame scaffold… But why use that and not the standard system scaffold?

And digging deeper would also reveal the massive challenge on this job…

That’s the elaborate shoring system below the surface that is holding up the weight of the entire scaffold above.

When Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE decided to expand their South wing they called on trusted masonry experts, Joseph Rizzo & Sons. But Mark Rizzo, being a good production manager, took one look at this patient and realized that it was a little out of their normal scope – so he called Tony P at Superior Scaffold for assistance.

Superior had to design and build a heavy duty, elaborate shoring system below the main level to hold the load of the entire frame scaffold, all the equipment and crews above it.

Mark Rizzo, Tony P, and the engineers at Alternate Design Solutions put their heads together and came up with an answer. They took long steel beams and spanned the structural steel of the building so the entire load above would be dissipated through the columns of the building and not the roof below. They then used hi-load shoring frames to add support to the beams. It’s really quite an engineering feat.

It allowed crews to load men and material onto multiple levels of scaffold at the same time while also giving them complete access to the entire façade. This in turn saved time and money for the GC and the hospital.

They also realized that frames were the perfect solution because the base was really flat and the height of each deck level worked perfectly to give crews access to every inch of the façade. They erected a 300’ long X 90’ high X 5’ wide frame scaffold that was decked in at every level. It also included a 2000 pound material hoist and 3 stair towers so crews could get access from the sides or center.

The second biggest challenge was the scheduling and timing for everything to happen. Like a good doctor we listened to the patient, anticipated their needs and took action to get the job erected on-time and within budget.
