It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

The $70 Million dollar renovation at 401 North Broad continues. This time we provided 1100 lineal feet of canopy (overhead protection) all the way around the building and suspended scaffold everywhere to assist in the façade restoration.  We were here on another job – you can read all about it on our blog.

Our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, has swing stages all around the exterior of this gigantic building.

Let’s look at the suspended scaffold first. It’s pretty cool to see the different sized platforms on just one side of this structure.

This old building once home to North American Publishing and Packard Motor company is now a giant data center or carrier hotel.

The new owners pledged $70 million dollars to renovate the 11 story, 1.3 million square foot, block long pale brick building.

Crews needed access to the exterior for façade restoration and Superior provided them with the necessary equipment. The platforms are Altrex and the motors are a mix of PowerClimber PC1 and BisoMac 210. This combination gave the crews the necessary reach and exposure to every part of this enormous building.

Let’s talk about the overhead protection all the way around the building. It required a few special adaptations – that’s why you will see a combination of system scaffold and frame scaffolding .

There were a few large bays or loading dock areas that had special height and width parameters and the best way to accommodate them was to use system scaffold.

You can see just how long these canopies are. This is huge building.

However, on the front of the building frame scaffold was used. This particular view show a double-wide frame canopy using our heavy duty 767 or Philly frame.

Steel and aluminum beams along with corrugated steel roof and debris panels were used all away around the building allowing business as usual as the exterior renovation continued.

Our goal is to always keep the business up and running while work is going on overhead. This old building should look fantastic once the work is completed. I will post photos of the finished product once they are available.

Superior Scaffold’s emergency service team was called late Thursday afternoon.

We had a crew on the job within 2 hours and a complete overhead protection system in place within 24 hours!

Clemens Construction was demoing the building next door and when L&I (Licenses and Inspections) went out to examine they spotted a damaged parapet on the building next door.

The canopy went up immediately to protect pedestrians and traffic below. The four story scaffolding went up 2 days later. Inspectors were not in any hurry to get to the façade so they gave us a few extra days to erect the scaffold.

One of the cool things about this job is that this canopy is a custom size: 17’ tall and 50’ long. It was designed using system scaffold so the owner could keep his signage and awning up during the construction process. The other unique item of note is that the 4 decks of scaffold sit directly on top of the overhead protection. It also has debris netting all the way around for added protection.

They decided to scaffold the entire façade to give crews and inspectors access to the parapet and the entire face of the structure.

In a world where even the smallest details get blow up on the interwebs it seems harder and harder to get someone’s attention or interest. But this was one of those cool jobs that seemed much less attention-getting from the outset but further digging proved just how creative our designers and crew had to be.

What do you see when you look the picture of the debris chute sticking out from the side of the building? A plain debris chute?  Look again.

It’s a 200 foot high debris chute with access on ALL 20 floors! And in order to have a hopper on each level Superior Scaffold needed to encase the chute in a system scaffold structure that would support the weight of the debris system. So the actual chute is supported by the system scaffold and not just dangling off of the roof.

And then as an added precaution we encased the entire unit with debris netting to keep the dust and detritus contained.

And there’s even more. More, you say?  Yes, unbelievable.  Superior also designed an ingenious loading platform at the back of the building for safe access to the hoist and all of the material.

This is the new construction for Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Deptford Township, NJ. I’m not exactly sure if they took over a building that was designed for someone or something else but Bob’s decided, heck, they needed to open up the front and sides of this storefront to let light shine on through.

Well, as you can see, they needed a way to support the building while they cut the giant openings out of the bricks (façade) for the new glass and headers.

Superior Scaffold was called in to design compact system towers that would support our steel needle beams. And what a success it was. They were able to safely remove the needed façade and install the new headers and glass. These needle beams and scaffolding make for a great way to accomplish a job like this.  We’ve got many more examples you can check out on our website.

How cool is that? A house!!! Not some giant, nasty looking, electrical, transformer filled, barbed wire nightmare. No. This is a working substation/house with a balcony, windows, a garage, landscaping and more. This might be common practice but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. And I dig it, baby.

So that leads us to just what is Superior Scaffold doing on this project? Well, take a look at the job site. This is a far cry from the glory of the finished renderings – but in due time, my friends, due time.

They are currently constructing the new building and we were called in to erect a scaffold bridge from the old substation, up and over, into the new one. Crews working on this Atlantic City Electric job needed a way to get down into the new building safely.  If you look carefully at this photo you can see the trench, rebar, cement, dirt, and other obstacles that stood in their way.

We erected a scaffold bridge using system scaffolding that’s 4’ wide X 31’ long X 13’ high. It also incorporates a stair tower, deck, plank, guard rails, ladder and more.

The surrounding upscale residential area has grown substantially in the last several years and has caused the existing substation and transmission lines serving this area to be near their load capacity. This is a substation and we are subcontractor for Ray Angelini, Inc. who is installing the conduit in the new structure.

The existing 23kV substation must be re-built at 69kV to accommodate this load growth and to allow for continued growth in the area. The new substation will benefit the entire 7-mile Island and areas surrounding the causeways to the mainland.

If you recall, Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the decorative steel structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street.

But how could we get them and their equipment out far enough to work safely on this structure at the top of the building?

A cantilever scaffold from the floor below.  For those of you not familiar with a cantilever system it’s basically a way to use leverage to extend out so the weight of the new deck is  supported by the floor below.

The initial thought was a traditional cantilever system using aluminum beams, stringers and joists like we’ve done many times before… but smarter heads prevailed and proposed this system scaffold cantilever. It’s lighter, easier to set up, and more efficient. Crews needed to get to the outside of this super structure to skin it and finish it. You can see in the wide shot the shiny metal structure at the top of this building.  We’ve essentially created a new floor around the exterior of the top of this building that will allow crews to get up to the next level.

Sit back and enjoy the view.  It’s a pretty radical job that’s proving to be a win, win for all of the trades involved.

And from the ground you can really see just how large it was.  This was a U shaped design with a 220 foot long run on the 36th street side by a 40’ run or return on the Market Street side and then a 12’ run on the Filbert Street side. Each one of the decking planks also has to be tied down so it won’t shift or lift in the wind.

Saint Mark’s Church, at 1625 Locust St., is undergoing some renovations and called Superior for the scaffold support and access it needed. The church was founded in 1847 and actually built between 1848 and 1849 and as an historic building needed the utmost care when completing said renovations. Superior Scaffold has a long history of exemplary work on historic buildings and structures in the tri-state area so they were the logical choice.

These upgrades were being done in phases and Superior needed a way to get the many disciplines (roofers, masonry crews, windows, painters, and the like) to their destinations.

An elaborate combination of system scaffold & frame scaffold was used in this design.  I also wanted to show you a few pictures of our crew and truck(s) outside so you can get an idea of what to expect when they roll up to your location.

The truck(s) will pull up front and block off any unwanted access so that crews can take inventory and unload for the job.

The steep roofs and many angles of the church made it a challenge to scaffold.

Extra care was taken all around the job because of the delicate nature of the structure itself. Superior’s crews are very cognoscente of their surroundings and are skilled at keeping even the smallest items intact while erecting scaffolding.

Another challenging access point was the chimney. It sat very close to the sidewalk so Superior had to devise a way to get crews up while protecting the traffic down below. Engineer, Mike Leone, created a scaffold frame system that sat on top of the canopy. The canopy frames would provide the support for the 40’ tall scaffold system while also providing the walkway for pedestrians.

Two stair towers were also erected around the church to give crews access to different areas.

There was even a 70’ run of system scaffold down the South (Locust) side giving masonry and painting crews access.

The challenge was how to get the 25 treads, at 800 pounds each and 8 feet long, from their shipping crates set onto the staircase inside the building.

The solution, from Superior Scaffold, came in the form of two high-load scaffold towers with an 18’ long steel beam running in between them, then incorporating a Hi Tech Patriot 1000 cable hoist to do the lifting.

The hoist was able to travel along the steel beam to pick up the heavy stairs and then move them over to the particular position and then lower them down into place.

Each stair was dollied inside from the exterior staging area and set down near the hoist.

This setup was done in two stages: the first actually having one of the stair towers standing directly on the staircase to set the lower sandstone stairs and then the second stage was moved up above the staircase to set the upper stairs.

Yep, you heard correctly.  Negative air enclosure – it essentially creates negative air pressure in the building while crews are doing asbestos abatement work.  The contaminated air in the building gets sucked out through these large chutes that Superior Scaffold erected (then skinned or wrapped) and down through giant filters at the bottom.

The contaminated or bad air is removed from the building as crews work.  Superior erected a system scaffolding out of the side of the building, down to the ground, that was then skinned to create giant air ducts or chutes.

Crews needed to get to up to the plaster ceiling, 4 floors up inside the entry way, as part of their new remodel. Sounds like an easy job – until you look at the contour of the atrium and the amount of access they needed.  You can see from the photos that there weren’t many right angles in there, not to mention all of the pillars, beams, staircases, recessed balconies and more.

And to complicate the overall design there needed to be two decks (2 tiers) at two different elevations at the top for crews to reach the ceiling to complete their work.
