Now each of these could be its very own post but I thought I’d combine them into one article of cool scaffold jobs. The idea is to show two interesting applications for scaffolding that you might not have considered.

Let’s start with this cantilever work deck at the newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center (originally the Margaret-Orthodox-Arrott station and formerly named Margaret-Orthodox station). Try saying that five times really fast.

It is an elevated railway station on SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line, located above the intersection of Frankford and Oxford Avenues, in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

As you can see from the pics we had to erect scaffold inside a decorative steel tower that would allow crews to get to the upper level so they could install 500lb pieces of glass. But the unique part is how our guys had to design a cantilvered work deck out from underneath the structure to allow the crew to work above. It was 7’ wide X 8’ long X 33’ high system scaffold with one top deck level with 6’ side brackets. Pretty cool.

We came back and did the same thing at a lower elevation and then a complete second tower. The client was US Glass & Metal working for SEPTA.

The second – is a job we did around the rock climbing wall at Temple University Pearson McGonigle Hall. It’s part of their newly expanded recreational facility.

Patrons pass through the large glass entryway to see 12000 sq/ft retail space and the rock wall.

Superior was called upon to build a scaffold up and over a large section of climbing wall so crews could install/finish drywall over the top. It’s unique because our crew used system scaffold to build up to the top of the wall and then stepped over with one of our legs and rested it on top of the wall itself. They then erected a work deck spanning over the section of climbing wall so crews could easily work close to the ceiling.

The entire renovation is a site to see.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shoring & Scaffolding at Forever 21

An appropriate title for this post would be “Shoring Exposed” – because that’s exactly what we are going to do here.  It’s not often that we get to show a complicated shoring job because they are usually buried deep in some dark nasty place but this one had just enough light to show the details.

There were 2 phases of this job – the shoring and the scaffolding.  Let’s start with the shoring first.

Forever 21 is building out their new location on Chestnut street and decided to enlarge the entranceway and windows on the first few levels.  Look at how their neighbor Sephora did it. They want theirs to look similar with lots of light coming in the front of the store.

Initially the people at Forever 21 needed scaffold out front for the work on the façade. But once it was up they realized the amount of shoring required and asked if there was there anyway we could add shoring without removing the scaffolding.  So we came up with a solution where we only had to take the the decking off and remove some frames to get the shoring into place.

The shoring was needed to support 2’ thick brick walls, steel and concrete 5 stories tall!  This is a great job to show as an illustration because we have so many different pieces of equipment on the scene.  We have everything from hi-load frames, steel beams, aluminum beams, kip shores, screw jacks, shoring heads, adjusting screws, etc.

On the first floor, there was an existing steel beam we had to work up and around by stacking post shores onto the high load frames.

Crews had to work around the existing standard frames with high load shoring frames to pickup the steel beams on the outside. And since the scaffold went up before the shoring it was tricky.

We had to carry the entire building load down to the second floor then down to the 1st floor.

Here are 6” steel beams rated at 12 lbs per lineal foot that were placed 4 side-by-side at 28” centers on the third floor.

Part 2 is the scaffolding.  Let’s start with what was required inside to support the crews.  We erected a system scaffold on the first level to get crews up the second floor ceiling above the escalator for demo work and for new mechanicals (electrical, HVAC, lighting, etc.).

You can see where we continued the system scaffold all the way up to the ceiling on the second floor giving crews safe access above the escalator.

The job initially started out front using regular J frames – 5’ wide X 6’6” high.  These are a quick and easy alternative to system scaffold when the ground is very level and you aren’t going up too many floors.

Crews then decked the top 3 levels and added debris netting.

The client asked for 16′ high wood panels out front to help block the view of the work being done inside – so we gladly obliged.

One challenge: the scaffolding for the sidewalk out front was done at night.   Crews waited for vehicular and pedestrian traffic to subside and then they went to work.
