This funky building sits on the corner of S. Stockton and E. Front St. I liked how symmetrical it looked. I’m not sure what’s inside but just from the outside it reminded me of one of the old radio buildings from the thirties.

Check out the crazy radio tower on the top. RKO came immediately to mind but I know that this is modern.

So what was Superior Scaffold doing there? We provided roughly 150 feet of canopy or overhead protection on each side and a swing stage (suspended scaffold) so masonry restoration crews could get to every inch of the façade. They were brick pointing, caulking, cleaning and doing brick replacement.

We used our largest walk-through scaffold frames with steel beams, corrugated aluminum roofing, debris panels, lighting and capped it off with our lovely fluorescent warning banners on both ends.

It’s nothing fancy but I just liked the way it laid out around the building.

Transport Platform, Mast Climbers, The Residences at Mid-Town Park, 9th & Orange, Wilmington, DE

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

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.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

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.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

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.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

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.

Scaffolding, scaffold, access, superior scaffold, transport platform, mast climber, Philadelphia, masonry, windows, pa, new jersey, nj, de, construction, rent, rental, rents

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.
And yes, I’m back!

Carry that heavy load: Shoring at New Jersey DOT Maintenance Building

scaffolding, scaffold, rental, rent, rents, scaffolding rentals, construction, ladders, equipment rental, swings, swing staging, stages, suspended, shoring, mast climber, work platforms, subcontractor, GC,

The NJ Department of Transportation is replacing 4 giant windows and lintels at their maintenance garage at 1959 S. Delsea Dr., Vineland, New Jersey and called Superior Scaffold to supply the necessary shoring equipment.

For those who don’t know what a lintel is – a lintel is defined as a structural horizontal block that spans the space or opening between two vertical supports often found over portals, doors, windows, and fireplaces.

 scaffolding, scaffold, rental, rent, rents, scaffolding rentals, construction, ladders, equipment rental, swings, swing staging, stages, suspended, shoring, mast climber, work platforms, subcontractor, GC,

So to do the job, there are 3 needle beams per 9’ X 9’ window to carry the roof and the wall above. There are two shoring towers per window, one on each side of the wall to carry the needle beams.

scaffolding, scaffold, rental, rent, rents, scaffolding rentals, construction, ladders, equipment rental, swings, swing staging, stages, suspended, shoring, mast climber, work platforms, subcontractor, GC,

You can see in the photos the exterior towers and the interior towers constructed from hi-load shoring frames. The needle beams pass directly through the building and are supported on each side by steel beams that sit on the u-heads on top of the towers.  This holds the weight of the building above it so crews can replace the lintels below.

 scaffolding, scaffold, rental, rent, rents, scaffolding rentals, construction, ladders, equipment rental, swings, swing staging, stages, suspended, shoring, mast climber, work platforms, subcontractor, GC,

Each tower is 4’ wide, 7’ long and 15’ high.

They are also in the process of re-roofing the building so our towers had the added weight of the crew and their equipment.

Beside the usual access challenges, the biggest was how to erect the tower around the flag pole out front of the building. In the end, it was decided to go right up next to it. Worked like a charm.

We not only protect the customers from the myriad of construction projects that can go on but we also allow businesses to remain open while said project rocks on.

Consider us the “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Scaffolders” of the tri-state area.

And how do we do it?  By composing the best scaffolding for the job.  Just like this overhead protection (canopy) at Jacobs Music in Center City, Philadelphia, PA. It’s not big, it’s not fancy but it looks great and, most importantly, it does the job. Not only did we provide a sidewalk shed (using scaffold frames, steel beams, aluminum beams and debris panels) but if you look carefully there is a small section of shoring as well.  It was all part of their facelift to give the storefront more exposure with new windows and entryway.

We also put a Jacobs Music banner on the ends of the canopy – insuring customers knew exactly which proprietor was behind the stage (so to speak).

You can see the finished results here.  On this job, you could say that we lived for the music.

In all fairness, they are a refined piano merchant so with that I give you…

Superior Scaffold hangs a whopper of a job at Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY

This is a monstor of a job.  We promised some photos and since we, at Superior Scaffold, keep our promises – here they are.

What this project entails is getting crews up underneath the ceiling while the casino remains open for business as usual so they can get the new HVAC and mechanicals installed.

The solution came in the form of what is called a multi-point suspended scaffold.  It’s not only wide, but stable enough to hold equipment, rolling towers, HVAC piping, etc.

These giant work platforms actually hang from chains from the arched trusses at the ceiling.  It’s netted in so nothing can fall off of the sides and its sturdy enough to support just about anything you can put onto it.

The ceiling has giant arches which of course curve and give different elevations along that curve.  So the challenge for our crews was to get the lengths of chains correct over the entire spans of this platform while they were assembling them to keep the platform perfectly level.

The segments had to hang at different elevations from the trusses to accommodate the particular ducting and venting going on up there.  Some lengths would be 20 feet while others would be 10 and so forth.  But once our guys go the proper lengths in place the platform was installed, level and sturdy.

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

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental  superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental

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

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental  superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental

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.

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental

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.

Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ is part of a denomination which is a merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches of the United States.

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.
