Market Street Men of Steel – Cantilever Scaffold

Scaffolding, scaffold, cantilever scaffold, iron workers, carpenters, façade, system scaffold, Philadelphia, pa, nj, de

The new owners of 1101 Market St. wanted to make some changes to the entryway and needed to give crews access to a hard to reach area. This section is literally cut into the entrance to the Aramark Tower (now the Jefferson Center) four stories up.

Superior Scaffold was called in by GC, Clemens Construction, to create a cantilever scaffold where the base would sit inside the lobby of the building but would allow crews to work out under the section extruding from the building. Our cantilevered work deck had to support everyone from iron workers putting in the new steel, to carpenters, finishers, electricians and more – truly a multi-trade scaffold.

The system scaffold, cantilever was roughly 30’ long and 20’ high with a 5’ cantilever at the top and a work deck on top of that.

The tricky part was that we had to go out 5 feet from where the base was placed in the lobby. To support the weight we had to take it straight up – and then using jacks on the bottom of the standards – we literally jacked the scaffold up and pinned it to the ceiling to hold it in place.

I love it when a job comes together.  Needless to say, that it went off without a hitch and the new owners are happy with the remodeled entryway.

Scaffolding & Shoring – Working at the Car Wash

Everyone knows that I like to bring the cool jobs to light no matter how large or small they might be, and this one certainly fits.

It’s pretty amazing to think that this car wash works around the clock 365 days a year. I had no idea that this rental car company (at Philadelphia International Airport) washed so many cars in a month.  It’s non stop!  I guess it makes sense with cars constantly being rented and turned back in.

If something were to happen to the building it would be nearly impossible to shut it down for repairs. Well, that’s exactly what happened. Over time natural aging has caused the bar joists to pull away from the cinderblock walls causing concern for the roof, especially if a large snow were to fall.

They have contracted to do the permanent work in the spring but in the meantime they called Superior Scaffold to shore up those joists on both sides inside the car wash.

It’s basically a two-lane car wash that runs all the time. Our crew had to come in after 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (their only slow time) to erect the shoring scaffold one lane at a time.

They would shut one lane down on Tuesday night for our crew so they could erect the system scaffold that was acting as shoring. We used system scaffold because of the tight space they had to work with. The entire time they worked, the other lane would continue to wash cars! I wonder if they wore their rain gear?

And then on Wednesday night, they shut down the other lane so our crew could scaffold the opposite side.

The job went off without a hitch and she’s up and running two cars at a time – all day and night. Had no idea how busy these guys were.  Crazy.

Scaffolding Philadelphia Museum of Art – Ceiling from the Zhihua Temple

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

It’s not fancy but this 15’ high, frame scaffold, rolling tower with a stair tower access instead of the usual hook on ladder had to be erected with the utmost care.

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

Our scaffold was erected to help get Chinese researchers and their equipment up to the top of this 500-year-old, hand carved ceiling that was originally installed over a Buddhist altar from the Ming dynasty.

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

The crew is using special equipment to map out the entire structure, inch by inch. Once completed, they will take their photos, data, maps, and bring them back to China where they can analyze the construction and details to learn more about it and even recreate the work of art.

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

We’ve done several scaffold builds in the Philadelphia Museum of Art where we are trusted to never have any incidents. All of the scaffold materials had to be wheeled in, by hand, through a maze of corridors and elevators past ancient artifacts and priceless works of art and delicately assembled. It was definitely a white glove job.

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

The coffered ceiling comes from the Hall of Transforming Wisdom. This work of art is over 500 years old and was originally decorated with lustrous red lacquer and brilliant gilding. It’s one of the best-preserved examples of imperial Buddhist architecture from the early Ming dynasty (1368-1644)

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

It’s constructed entirely of wood using interlocking joinery instead of nails. The ceiling holds designs that incorporate imperial and Buddhist motifs to depict a heavenly realm. A dragon writhes in the center with phoenix-like birds, lotus plants, and Buddhist celestial beings filling the surrounding sections. Miniature pavilions, each originally containing a crowned Buddha, encircle the central dome.

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

The ceiling comes from the Hall of Transforming Wisdom, one of the main buildings within the Zhihua temple complex. The infamous eunuch Wang Zhen built the temple around 1444. It was originally installed over a Buddhist altar with Buddha figures flanked by eighteen Luohan (enlightened monks).

scaffolding, scaffold, rolling tower, pa, philly, philadelphia

Like me, you are probably wondering how on earth did it get to the Philadelphia Museum of Art? The Museum purchased it in 1928. The building that originally housed it – the Zhihua temple in Beijing – enjoyed imperial patronage until the mid-1700’s after which the structure fell into disrepair. The temple still stands today and the Museum is collaborating with the temple and researchers in the United States and China to find out more about this important monument. The detail is truly stunning to see up close.

We are always thankful and proud to work with the museum on these priceless works of art! This is just one of many fantastic pieces at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I urge you to go check them out.

Being present in the presence of beauty, 1800 Rittenhouse Square

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

Look up… Look around.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

See what’s out there. Beauty is everywhere.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

I think as a society we tend to focus on keeping our feet on the ground – bills, children, traffic, work, our future. I am a lucky guy. I get to walk through this illustrious city with my head towards the heavens. I don’t take for granted the beauty of this city or my position in it. I have a slight advantage over most because I actually get to see close up and even touch some of the greatest architecture.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

And each time it stirs something inside me. Ethereal as this might sound, it shows me just how much incredible energy and talent there is out there in the universe. It’s there from the simplest flowers to the most complicated masonry work.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

Philadelphia is full of the most incredible art, architecture, murals, woodwork and ornamentation. I guess what I’m getting at is that it’s inspiring.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

It does take time to stop and take it in but I think in the end it’s worth those few moments each day to keep your spirit lifted, your creative juices flowing, your amazement with human talent buoyed.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

I look up at this building at 1800 Rittenhouse square and I don’t see the suspended scaffold we provided crews but the talent of skilled artisans and craftsmen beautifying this old structure. And that goes for our crew that delicately installed these swing stages to do a complete window replacement.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

I also see the ornamentation around the windows at the top of the building. I see a structure standing at the south side of the square having an upgrade or facelift.  I see the decorative stone work and detailed masonry work around the entrance near our canopy (overhead protection) at street level.

Buddhists have a word for what the mind generates in its normal state: dukkha. Hindus call it maya. We call it misery, unsatisfactorines, stress. It’s all around us. Just turn on the news. Everyone is in a hurry, reactionary, filled with their own self perpetuating myths.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

I am guilty of this myself as I just try to get through each day. But I think that if you stop to look and even think about the achievements of humanity (they are impressive and immense like this building) then it just might motivate you to improve your current state, you could say, work towards enlightenment.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

Think about what it took to build this structure at the turn of the century without the advancements in modern construction. It’s pretty incredible.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

So my wish for this new decade is that everyone take a few moments to STOP, BREATHE, LOOK AROUND and revel in and absorb the incredible energy, talent and beauty that IS this city. The stillness will speak to you – if you listen.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

Maybe for a moment you will forget about the stress, fear, guilt, shame, or pressure that constantly bombards us and just BE… Feel the energy and enjoy some of the great works of art all around you.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

Be present in the presence of beauty.

suspended scaffold, masonry, window repair, swings, swing stage, canopy, philadelphia, pa

My wish.

And as always, if you need to get close to or repair some of this incredible art call Bob “The King of Swing” at 215 743-2200 today or visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more info.

Transport Platform at University of Delaware Stadium – “Super Responder”

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, buck hoist

I heard the term “Super Responder” today. It was in the context of being an Empath. They say that some empathic people have nervous systems that react more quickly and strongly to certain stimuli than others.

I personally absorb other people’s emotions whether they are good, bad, anxious or stressed. There are times when I literally have to excuse myself and let them run off of me and get re-centered again. Growing up, my friends and family called me shy, overly sensitive, antisocial and even eccentric, when in truth, I just felt things more heavily than my cohorts.

Psychologists use the term Emapth to describe a person who often will take on the pain of others at their own expense. Now, I’m not saying that all of our estimators are Empaths but they do have the keen awareness, intuition and wisdom to feel what their clients need and respond in a complimentary way.

Using the term in its literal sense, our complete business model is built upon the principle of being a “Super Responder”. We are family owned and operated and can respond faster than most of our competitors – AND – our guys actually FEEL and CARE about the projects they work on. Maybe they are empathic? Hard to say, but I can tell you that when a client is hurting or feeling stressed our guys feel it too and try to alleviate that burden.

Psychologists can call them Empaths, we call them good people who care. And one of our best “Super Responders” is Tony P (pictured in the Transport Platform). Clients, like the University of Delaware and EDIS, will tell you that when they need something immediately, they call Tony P. He responds faster than anyone in the business and he’s one of the rare few who actually answer on weekends.

What does this have to do with our TP-2500 Transport Platform we installed at the University of Delaware Stadium for the Fightin’ Blue Hens?  Nothing and everything. When EDIS called Tony P and said that the University of Delaware needed a way to get special needs or wheelchair bound fans into the stadium while it was under construction – he knew exactly what to do.

“Our TP-2500 is perfect. It’s designed for the safe transportation of material and authorized personnel both inside and outside of buildings. We can tuck it in the corner and it will give people easy access,” said Tony P.  “It’s protected from the elements and we can build a custom ramp to it.”  The Transport platform will act as a temporary elevator for the entire 2019 season while the new construction is being completed.

Working on St. Agatha – St. James Church at 38th and Chestnut is one of those rare opportunities where we get to help renovate an historic landmark.

St. James was the first Catholic Church on the west side of the Schuylkill River, founded 1850. St. Agatha, 3813 Spring Garden Street, was founded shortly thereafter in 1865. In 1976 after St. Agatha suffered a second fire the two churches were incorporated into St. Agatha-St. James.

So what does it take to be able to work on an historic structure like this? It takes skill, patience, customer service, more skill, and the ability to adapt quickly and think outside the box.

This particular job took three years to come to fruition. Yep. There are many unforeseen things that can happen when trying to negotiate a contract like this, changes in management, economic issues, ideas on how to best approach the job just to name a few.

But in the end, it’s all worth it. Superior Scaffold got to say that we were an integral part of bringing back an historic building to its former glory.

There are so many challenges on these old buildings like where to tie-in without damaging masonry, where to stage equipment and how to scaffold impossible alleys and chimney areas.

This was a 100% restoration including window repair, pointing, repairing damaged artifacts and more. Look closely at some of the photos.

We did have to move our equipment staging area at least 3 times to tidy up the place while they hosted these big events. We worked with the restoration crew and the Church when those events had to be put on.

We built a canopy out of bridge columns at the base of the structure to protect the pedestrians. We erected scaffolding around the entire building and then added debris netting and decked it in at every level to give crews complete access.

The really cool part was getting crews to the top so they could work on the giant stone artifacts. I just love seeing the tops of these old churches close up!

We used a patriot 1000 material hoist and a rack and pinion on one side. Crews used the Patriot to hoist stone and masonry up and down to the roof.

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.

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!

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.

I was blown away by Grounds For Sculpture. It’s got sculpture of all shapes and sizes, art, food, and lots of Peacocks wandering around. Click on the link for their address and hours. I encourage everyone to go check it out.

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.
