Superior scaffolds St. Mary’s Ukranian Church, Mcadoo, PA

When  St. Mary’s Ukranian Church in Mcadoo, PA needed a scaffolding company to erect scaffold for painters to restore the exterior luster of their beloved church – they turned to Superior Scaffold.  Our experience with historic buildings, churches and structures has made us the tri-state leader in the scaffolding industry.

The contractor wanted a stair tower to access the scaffold and a nice sized storage deck.  And to eliminate ascending the scaffolding from the ground each time, Superior constructed a special walkway across the roof.

You will see the photos below but I think this Youtube video gives the best visual description.

At the front of the video you will see the newly painted surfaces.  Also, about halfway through you will see the scaffold going up and the freshly painted gold domes.  It’s quite impressive looking.

How to adapt existing system scaffold (Thomas Jefferson University Hospital)

Even the best laid plans get interrupted from time to time.  So was the case at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.

The Alumni Hall building on the Jefferson University Hospital campus in Center City has been undergoing some changes to the HVAC system.

Superior Scaffold was called out to install scaffolding on the 6th floor rooftop spanning the entire 42 foot long section of roof all the way up the the 9th floor so workers could get up to make piping tie-ins and add insulation.

The scaffolding was in place and functioning well when one of the contractors determined that he needed to get directly beneath one of the supporting legs of the scaffolding to install a new rooftop HVAC unit.  Normally, not a problem but this was directly in the middle of the already assembled and functioning scaffold – and to make matters worse – it was beneath one of the supporting legs.

So the call went out to Superior’s 24 hour emergency services line and within hours they came up with a solution.  See the reconfigured scaffolding below.

You can see how the weight was redistributed to free up the room for the new unit to be installed beneath the scaffold while still allowing work to continue safely overhead.

Who says you can’t adapt an already built system scaffold?

Superior Scaffold at (215) 743-2200 is the best at what they do.

New Copper Swages or Ferrules for Suspended Scaffold wire ropes

Our Superior Scaffold Suspended expert tells us about the new copper swages.

Why they are stronger, safer, and better than traditional bolt on ferrules or fist grips for wire ropes and tie-downs.

Very simply put – time and safety.  Traditionally, you had to make sure each of your fist grips were tightened sufficiently before getting to work.  With these new copper swages you are safe and secure and working the minute you hit the job site.
