With some jobs it’s better just to let the pictures do the talking and this is certainly one of them!

Superior Scaffold provided the scaffolding for the new 22,000 square-foot atrium/lobby as part of the hospital’s expansion/addition at the Cherry Hill campus. And as of this month Kennedy Hospital will be known as Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital as part of a merger between Jefferson Health and Kennedy Health.

The cool thing about this job was the layout. We had to follow the curve of the atrium and unique design of the interior to erect this huge scaffold.

There were sections where we had to build up and through openings in lower floors to get crews, from multiple trades, to where they needed to be.

This is cool.  You get to actually see some photos of the guys erecting an overhead protection system.  Superior Scaffold has several canopies around this Bryn Mawr Hospital complex, but let’s focus on this one for now.  It’s at the emergency entrance where the ambulances pull up and drop off.  There is construction going on all around this place.

This overhead protection system probably seems quite normal but there a few unique features to it that I need to point out.  First, let’s describe some of it as we see the guys erecting it.

We start by having the equipment delivered to the job site via one of our trucks.  The guys then get to unload the material and start to lay things out according the drawings.

You can see where the footers/jacks are being laid out as they start the process.

You can see the skeleton is starting to take shape and the support steel is going up overhead.  You can also see where the canopy turns from the front door and runs down the sidewalk.  We need to give Mr. Pat McAndrew a shout out for providing these photos.

“Dead men”; I love the term for these giant chunks of concrete that help support or anchor the one side of the canopy.  We use these when we can’t anchor anywhere to the building or ground.  We could actually anchor to the concrete a bit further down (you will see that).

Not only did we have to make room for the ambulances but we put a soffit, fascia AND downspouts on the canopy as well.  (see the finished canopy below)

Here you get to see the dimensions of the sidewalk shed, 10’ wide by 135’ long by 10’ high.

And in this shot you can see two of the special features, the hard-wired light fixtures and the decorative fascia that will be painted and labeled at the clients request.

This shot gives you an idea of just what goes into erecting something like this.  All of the details from where the equipment has to live, to the amount of room it takes to put it up.

And BAM, the finished product!  One very functional, great looking overhead protection system.  In this picture, you can actually see the wide bays we created so the ambulances can back in the drop their passengers.

You can also see the painted fascia and labels for the ambulances.  It’s a good looking canopy that blends into the building very well.

If you look to the left you can see the white downspouts – not something we usually include but were a special feature on this one.  You can also see the hard-wired light fixtures instead of the usual work lights.

And it has been confirmed that the pipe next to the lights is in fact a sprinkler system!  You don’t see that often on a canopy.  How cool.

We have 2 other canopies on-site.  I will detail those later and put in a link.

If you need overhead protection or a canopy or sidewalk shed call Superior Scaffold today at (215) 743-2200 and ask for Pat (the Music Man) he’ll take care of you (and might even sing you a little song) or log onto www.superiorscaffold.com.

We were thrilled and honored to work with GC: HSC and Blasz Construction on this project. 

And for all of you rockers we have some good ole’ Iron Maiden. “Dead men tell no tales.”

When St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia needed to construct a pedestrian bridge from their new building to their existing parking garage – they called Superior Scaffold.

We erected a scaffold bridge that had to serve two purposes, one, to get crews beneath the new pedestrian bridge so they could finish construction – without stopping traffic below, and two, to get pedestrians safely across the street from the parking garage to the main hospital.

This was the main entrance so it had to remain open at all times. We came in at night and diverted traffic while we erected the scaffolding. We built support towers on each side of the road using system scaffold, and then we connected them with 26’ trusses.

We also skinned the decking with plywood and then put debris netting around the top for added protection.

We also built a stair tower to allow crews access to the new bridge construction while also keeping traffic flowing beneath. (Thanks to Pat for the Artsy photo – he’s turning into a regular Ansel Adams out there).

You can see the canopy we attached to the bridge that follows the sidewalk down perpendicular to the bridge tower.

This allowed pedestrians to travel from the parking garage, across the street, beneath the new construction and into the main entrance of the hospital.

How to have a positive experience with a setback – Porch brackets at 1900 Rittenhouse, Philadelphia

scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, swings, suspended scaffold, PA, DE, NJ, MD,

It’s time to pay tribute to the outsiders in our company.  Yes, it’s the swing department.  In fact, I hate to admit this but they came up with that very clever headline.  I wish I could take credit for it but I can’t.

Is our swing department the “bad boys” of the company?  You tell me?  In their spare time all they do is race cars (fast cars) build hot rods, snowmobile through the frozen tundra (very fast) talk about driving fast, and taking chances.  Have you detected a theme here?  All except for the one VW building hippy who just likes to putter around at 50 brake horsepower thinking he’s going really fast…  But then again, he’s got the pop-up camper lid and big screen TV in case he wants to take a nap.  He’s the exception. (Also the one who came up with the headline – not to name names) He actually said, “Some might think that in this day and age of airbags and crumple zones driving a vintage VW bus is kind of  living on the edge.”  He’s a rebel..

I just thought about it for a second – and maybe I’m bestowing too much onto their “bad boy” image.  It seems to me that the regular scaffold guys are just as loony.  I mean, you would have to be to climb around on the outside of buildings held on only by a harness and your brute strength.  At lest the boys in the swing department have a (sort of) cage to protect them AND motors to elevate them up and down whereas the scaffolding men have to climb up and down under their own power.  Hmmmm.

I guess this debate could rage on for pages.  Can we at least agree on one thing?  No matter what reputation our guys have off the job – they do some pretty incredible work and they won’t take chances with safety.

Which brings us to the actual job.

superior scaffold, philadelphia, philly, 215 743-2200

I posted this because this isn’t something you see everyday.  While doing facade restoration and window replacement at the high rise at 1900 Rittenhouse Square – our guys at Superior Scaffold used 3 foot and 6 foot porch brackets to allow contractors access to the setback facade of the building without having to reach out dangerously or make additional drops  in work cages.

What are porch brackets, you ask?  They are those unique pieces that so handily clip right into the Altrex staging that fill the gaps.   In the photo above you can see one single 3 foot section on the left and two (3’ sections side-by-side) to make the 6’ section. They not only save time and money but also make it much safer for crews while working on buildings with setbacks and bump outs.

This 50’ section of staging spans the entire façade and fits perfectly on either side of the window balconies.  The porch brackets allow workers direct access to the façade in one sweep.  This superior scaffold is also rigged with the Bisomac 210 hoist for super strength and reliability.  We can give a shout out to our supplier BeeAccees who provides us with all of these cool items.  This just goes to show how versatile accessories like porch brackets can be when planning out a restoration project.

In this photo you can see the guys working on the windows actually standing on the porch brackets.  Without them it would be an infinitely harder job and certainly more time consuming.

So, as the debate rages on – swing department = “bad boys” or not – we can be assured that the crews of this job at 1900 Rittenhouse had a positive experience with a few setbacks!

A bit of history on 1900 Rittenhouse:  1900 Rittenhouse Square Apartments is a historic high-rise building on Rittenhouse Square in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was built 1923–1926. The 58-meter-tall, 18-story building has been converted to condominiums.

Triple the action for Superior Scaffold at the Old Dublin Pike Bridge in Doylestown, PA.

The stone arch bridge was originally constructed back in 1875 and then rehabbed in 1947.  So it was time for a reconditioning – seems that this old bridge still has over 5,000 cars travel over her every day in Doylestown, PA.  Crews needed a way to support the structure and to get into the arches to repair the stones and masonry while keeping the road open above.

This was the challenge for Superior Scaffold.

First order of business was diverting the river through two of the arches so one could be fairly dry while the scaffolding was erected.  Then, once that was built, the water had to be diverted again so the second, and then third arch could be constructed.

The next challenge was how to best shore up the arches so work could be completed but also support enough weight for heavy machinery traveling the road over head.  Superior engineer Bob Robinson decided on 20k scaffold frames to hold up the shoring beams and wood supports.  It allowed the road to remain open for business while construction crews completed the work below.

It’s a unique way to solve the problem and keep a major thoroughfare open.

The job went off without a hitch and the mighty river is flowing once again and cars are happily traveling over the old bridge in Buck County.

Superior Scaffold and the historical Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ

This neat old church at 1064 Penn Ave, in Wyomissing, PA, that began its life in 1909, needed some repairs to the high vaulted plaster ceilings – so they called Superior Scaffold.

Superior is known for its skill working with historical buildings and the care it takes around one of a kind artifacts and structures.  This was no different.  We had to construct some cool system scaffolding up, over and around pews, alters, and priceless objects at Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ

The ceiling was divided into sections with flying buttresses, so the layout had to be spot on accurate.

We used system scaffold with joists and plank to not only get to the hard to reach places but to also build a solid platform or dancefloor for the workers.

The steep, sloped, plaster ceilings had new sheetrock added over the old plaster, and then they were textured and painted.

This gave the old girl the dress up she needed for the next 100 years.

We were proud to bring our skills and experience working with historic buildings to Bausman Memorial United Church of Chris.

Construction of a small church began in 1909 and it was dedicated in 1911. As the congregation grew, members decided to complete the church building with an addition begun in 1922. The completed building was dedicated in 1924.

Scaffolding support for Riddle Memorial Hospital $16.5M emergency department expansion

Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Riddle Hospital PA

Riddle Memorial Hospital
 has embarked on two-year expansion designed to increase its emergency-room capacity by 60 percent.  The two-phase project is anticipated to cost $16.5 million and will expand the emergency room by 4,000 to 5,000 square feet.  Riddle has 33,000 visits annually to the emergency department.  The hospital, which was built in the 1960’s, was made to only accommodate 25,000 to 28,000 visits so this is a much needed expansion.

The restructuring caused the admissions and registration area to be relocated to the east of where it is now, and the main hospital entrance to move west.  So the call went out to Superior Scaffold.
Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Riddle Memorial Hospital Canopy 12  Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Riddle Memorial Hospital 2
The entrance was relocated and it was Superior’s job to build a structure that would provide access and protection for incoming emergency patients.  “The challenge was to keep the emergency room open while all of the renovations were going on inside,” said Pat McAndrew, of Superior.  “We basically had to create an entirely new entry point for the emergency room.”
Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Riddle Memorial Hospital 14  Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, Riddle Memorial Hospital 4
The structure was built using system scaffold and aluminum trusses.  Riddle had limited room so we had to set legs of the canopy on top of jersey barriers on one side.  They wanted plywood on the construction side and debris netting on opposite side.  The Jersey barriers were set in place so customers could park in front of the new entrance.

But because it was on black top we had to use our patented trailer tie downs to anchor the one side.  We drilled and anchored into the jersey barriers on the other side.

In the end, we provided exactly what they needed so the rennovation could continue and the hospital remain open for business.   And a shout out to the hard working crew who consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty erecting these complicated jobs!

Going off the deep end with scaffolding…

The Princeton Medical Center at Plainsboro, NJ is adding on to their illustrious hospital with two new rehabilitation pools.   The crews needed to get access to the ceiling to do some repairs and additions.  Well, with swimming pools spanning the entire room it makes it a bit difficult to reach up that high.

So they called Pat McAndrew at Superior Scaffold and said, “Help.”   Since they had spent most of their budget on these incredible pools they were looking for a low cost alternative to just scaffolding the entire pools all the way up to the ceiling.   They also wanted to use Baker/Painter scaffolds to roll from one end of the pool area ceiling to another.

Superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, NY, NJ, PA, Philadelphia

So, they creatively devised a plan that would put an 8’ scaffolding tower down into the center of the large pool from the 3’ shallow end down to the 9’ deep end.  They used 8’ horizontal trusses at deck height and then ran aluminum joists from side walls to trusses at 16” centers.  The entire thing was then topped off with a deck of ¾” plywood.  This would allow the baker scaffold to roll freely around the entire room while allowing crews to reach to the ceiling.  You can see just how wide and deep this room is.

Scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, PA, NJ, NY, DE, MD, shoring, Superior scaffold

Now, the small pool was a bit different.  They rested aluminum joists on the concrete side walls at 16” centers and then topped that off with plywood.  Since it was only 18’ in diameter the aluminum joists would be able to support all of the weight put upon them.

Bingo, bango, bongo… another Superior solution and satisfied customer.  Superior specializes in creative solutions for scaffolding problems.  Call 215 743-2200 to see what Superior can do for you.

Scaffolding the Cancer Treatment Center of America, Philadelphia, PA

When they needed the best multi-trade scaffold to complete their renovation they called Superior Scaffold.
(215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, shoring, PA, Philadelphia, NJ, NYC, DE, MD
Not only did they need to get glazers, carpenters, painters and inspectors access to the exterior of the structure but they needed to wrap the top half of the building with weather protection so they could work through the winter elements.  It’s a pretty common practice for the cold months.  It really helps keep the elements out while keeping a warm, safe environment for the crews.  Superior also installed a stair tower and large debris chute.

The biggest challenge with this job was securing the scaffold to the structural steel.  It’s another shinning example of Superior craftsmanship.

We will have more  photos as the job progresses.
