Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them doggies rolling
Rawhide
Rain and wind and weather
Hell bent for leather
Wishing my girl was by my side
All the things I’m missin’
Good victuals, love and kissin’
Are waiting at the end of my ride

It’s our job at Superior Scaffold to keep things rollin’. What do I mean by that? Well, when you have a business smack in the middle of the busiest part of town and you have a complete restoration going on overhead – you don’t want anything to stop. You want to keep those sidewalks open for all of the pedestrian traffic possible.

I will admit I had to look up the term victuals, since it’s just not something you hear much anymore. But every one of those people walking on the sidewalk is going somewhere and some are going to get some good victuals and we need to give them a throughput and protection when they do.

Canopies are a huge part of our business and we do it well. Heck, on this job we also designed and provided the double-wide swing stages or suspended scaffold that masonry crews used while doing a compete exterior renovation on this building at 13th and Market. So, we kept the crews rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ above at the same time we had pedestrians moving below.

This particular overhead protection system features roughly 800 linear feet of system scaffold – wide enough to stampede a whole ton of people through. It’s also tall enough to do some calf roping in – if you had to. AND it’s lit up so you can find your way down that long winding trail of concrete in the jungle of life.

Golly, we’ve also got 4’ debris panels on the top when those doggies are kicking up dust and special tie-downs to keep it mighty secure when those bad fellas role through town.

And jeepers paw, we erected up and over multiple loading doors and parking garage entrances.

All-in-all it’s been a hoot and a success. Several trades were able to use our suspended scaffold and our overhead protection system did exactly what it designed to do.

Superior Scaffold – Can’t Touch This!

At first glance, this mixed bag of tricks seems as fresh as a pair of MC Hammer pants. It looks like they used as many different access disciplines as possible to protect and erect a structure. But further examination proves otherwise.

When they decided to erect an apartment complex where the old parking lot used to be they didn’t think they would have to work around one lone structure. And part of the deal was that they couldn’t touch that building at all.

So what do you do? You bust a move and call Superior Scaffold and we come up with a legit solution to get crews access to the facade with out touching the small building right next door.

How – you say?  By needle beaming several 30′ long steel beams through the existing structure and then supporting them with hi-load shoring frames, anchored to the concrete, and spanning directly over the building so it can support the necessary scaffold and masonry materials to complete the job.  Too hype – Can’t touch this!

And then we decided that the safest way to give crews access on the front of the building was to use a swing stage or suspended scaffold.

Crews completed the job without a hitch and the original structure remained untouched in the process. So you see, call a company that’s hyped and tight to get it done right.

So move out of your seat and wave your hands in the air.  Call Superior Scaffold today if you have a hard to access project – (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more samples of our work.  Ask for “Iron” Mike and give him a song or a rhythm and he’ll break it down!

And of course, what time is it?  That’s right.  It’s Hammer time!

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.

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.

Are you ready for some football? Mast climber in elevator shaft – Lincoln Financial Field (Eagles Stadium) expansion

“Are you ready for some football?”  Well, the Philadelphia Eagles will be this year with some incredible upgrades to their stadium during the off season.  And Superior Scaffold is proud to have played a part.

#scaffold#scaffolding#rental#rent#superiorscaffold#restoration#inspection#contstruction#facade #masonry#canopy#protection#howto#erection#install#emergencyservices#masonry#suspendedscaffold #mastclimber#canopy#philly#philadelphia#pa#electrical#2157432200#pa#de#nj#ny#md#rents #sales#design#erection#dismantle#deliver#swingstaging#swings#stages#shoring#USA #nationwide#national

The Eagles are transforming the game day experience by placing nearly 1,600 more seats in the stadium. The Eagles and Panasonic have also teamed up to install the highest-definition LED video boards in the entire NFL. In all, 9,400 square feet of video and ribbon boards will make the in-game experience almost as visually stunning as the action on the field.

Superior was brought in to provide a Mast Climber (MC-10) work platform to help construct the new elevator linking the lower section with the new sky bridge that links the top sections together. Now, putting a mast climber work platform inside an elevator shaft is nothing new – but it’s not something you get to see everyday, especially in such a revered place like Lincoln Financial Field. This particular platform was used to construct the entire shaft from the ground up.

The second phase of this project is about three times the size of last year’s undertaking. In addition to the seats and the video boards, a bridge is being built to connect the East and West sides of the stadium – and the club levels are being renovated. There are 200 construction workers on site for the first of two shifts each day and up to 50 workers for the second shift.

Mast climbing work platforms come in handy to get to those hard to reach places . You can transport materials and quickly gain access to various levels inside the shaft without having to use cumbersome traditional scaffolding.

At this phase, you can see the steel was in place and crews were adding insulation board and just starting to enclose the elevator shaft using cinderblocks.

A second larger twin mast climber (MC-3615) was brought in to help finish the outside wall behind the new seating area. (I will add pics when I get them). But it looks like this guy right here.

Adding the 1,626 seats to the formerly open corners of the stadium brings the new total seat count to 69,176. The idea is to keep more noise in during the home games, eliminate the blowing wind through the stadium and of course, sell more tickets. It is an incredible expansion and really pumps up the volume for Eagles fans at the game.

And yes, I prefer the Faith Hill version of the “Are you ready for some football” theme to the Carrie Underwood or Pink versions, but you be the judge.

Truth be told, I kinda miss Hank. This one really summed it up.

Superior Scaffold ramps up for Toyota at the Philly Auto Show

The Philadelphia Auto Show runs from February 8 – 16, 2014 at the The Pennsylvania Convention Center, 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia PA 19107

Toyota set up an indoor track complete with traction ramps, water hazards, sand traps and suspension bumps giving the user the ultimate car buying experience.  Patrons are invited to ride along inside the new line up of Toyota vehicles to get a real world idea of how they will perform.

Toyota contacted Superior Scaffold to build the ramp that would test the climbing and traction control of their vehicles.  We jumped at the chance.  The ramp is 8’ high by 14’ wide and 53’ long.  (see pic)

The challenge here was that the ramp not only had to support the weight of the cars driving up and over it but also the 100 tons of dirt that would be put on top of it.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc, auto show, auto, cars, trucks

Superior engineers put pen to paper and calculated weight ratios and all of their super mathematical formulas and came up with a superior design (which was stamped and authorized).

Work set out using beams, system scaffold, and shoring materials to construct the ramp.

Details: 14’ aluminum beams on 2’ centers were used at the ramps, 14’ steel beams at 2’ centers were used at the top (flat) section.  3’ and 4’ spans were used going side to side, and 2’ spans going ramp to ramp.  They also used U-Heads on the flat sections and swivel U-Jacks on the ramps.  Then they crossed everything with 18’ aluminum beams on the ramps at 1’ centers and 12’ aluminum beams at 1’ centers on the top section.  And then the entire thing was skinned with 3/4’” plywood.

It’s a wild looking design that ultimately holds ton’s of weight. It’s so sturdy in fact that Superior Estimator, Pat McAndrew, and foreman, Kenny Foreman were putting finishing touches on beneath the ramp and Pat said, “We were under there for at least 20 minutes and unbeknownst to us – cars had been driving over it the entire time.  We never felt a thing.  It’s that sturdy.”

We were glad to help Toyota show off their new line up of vehicles.  Now, if we can get a test ride around the track a few times we will be happy.

How to add floors to an existing building – high exposure cantilever scaffold

This is amazing to me.  How do you add 3 floors to an already existing building?  You probably haven’t thought about that before.  I know that I hadn’t but the people at Superior Scaffold have many times.  In downtown areas space is a valuable commodity so sometimes the only place to expand is up.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

But this leaves a myriad of challenges.  The biggest one being how do we do all of the necessary heavy work outside of the building that needs to be done?  Well, by creating working space outside of the area being built.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

And in this case at the Parc Rittenhouse – there needed to be enough room and support to handle all of the weight for construction materials and the guys laying the bricks, facade and masonry work on the new addition.

Check out how Superior Scaffold engineers solved the problem.  It wasn’t from scaffolding from the ground up (impossible on this job – the lower roof wouldn’t support it) but from beneath the floors that were being added onto.  They used a high exposure cantilever scaffold system with giant weight supporting aluminum beams.  Check out the photos!

These huge beams are levered inside the floors below and stick out the windows.  They are then counter-balanced with another set of aluminum beams up against the ceiling joists to hold the weight outside of the building.  The ceiling beams are shored up and the system is balanced.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

It’s a crazy system but makes total sense.  Let the existing building take the weight and leverage to support anything outside on the beams.  See the photos.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

In some cases, like on the corners, crews had to actually cut holes into the brick to stick out the aluminum beams.  And then, they would deck them and add scaffolding.

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

Then, the crews deck it and put any scaffolding onto it to get up the next level.  I don’t know the weight ratio of what it can hold (I’ll have to ask the engineers and get back to you) but it’s a tremendous amount.

Superior  then erected a 45′ high systems scaffold to allow worker access to each of the floors as they were constructed.  They also added several man material hoists to get building materials and equipment up to the top.  There are suspended scaffolds on the job too helping install the new balconies.

Superior also had to install overhead protection all of the way around the building. This was quite an extensive job.

The building exterior also underwent a makeover bringing it back to its former glory of almost ¾ a century ago.

Here are a few (never before seen) shots of what the additional floors and subsequent penthouses looked like in their finishing stage.  If you look carefully, you can still see some of the cantilever beams sticking out through the brick.

Superior Scaffold doing double duty

In this edition of “Scaffolding Philadelphia” we get to show you how we can do double duty with our scaffolding creations.

This particular story was previously documented in the number 1 hit blog “Bend Me, Shape Me” that detailed the versatility of the altrex staging used by our suspeded scaffold division.  But this soon to be number one blog hit “Double Duty” (I can see Foreigner singing the theme song here or since this is a Tony P job – even Journey with Steve Perry) details the lower half of the job at City View.

Not  only did this overhead protection have to protect the general public from all of the window and facade work going on above them but it also had to become the platforms for the swings to sit on at the end of the day.

This is a fairly extensive canopy that had to allow for the entire walkway, entryway, and even shops to remain open during the entire phase of renovation.

The day I was “up air” super salesman, Anthony Pini, provided coffee and donuts for the crew.  It obviously paid off because not only did the overhead protection do the job but it looked great as well.

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.
