Unlike the normal facelift, where you book an appointment with the doctor and they set a time and place for the procedure to take place.  And in this day and age you’d better get plenty of recommendations or you might end up like this….

Oh my…

I guess I never really understood why perfectly normal looking people feel the need to mess themselves up like this but then again – we are behind the scenes and can throw our stones from high atop our glass houses.  But I digress.

The point is that sometimes even the best laid planes don’t go as they should.  For what ever reason this job has been put on hold.  Could be that something didn’t pass inspection… The company is trying to figure out just what they are capable and willing to do to this glorious old building built in 1915.

But I do know that this is one great looking canopy (overhead protection).
It’s 8′ wide X 150′ long X 10′ high.

It’s decked in solid with 4′ high debris panels and carries a 300psf rating.

Sometimes waiting for a job to start up is like waiting in a room full of mirrors… You really never know where to look – you can only hope that someone smashes in and starts the project.  Just ask the Axis.


And a great version by my girl Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.

Safety is our number one priority

It’s true.  I was going through some recent pics of some posts (say that 10 times) and I noticed that they all had one thing in common.

I would hope it was pretty darn obvious.

Unfortunately, in this day and age with all of the social media, texts, cell phones, and constant distractions, the bright red frames weren’t enough to get people’s attention.  We had to design an even brighter attention getter to help people look up.   And unless you were absolutely blasted on Boone’s Farm or stumbling from a Ray Rice smash to the head you should be able to see these.

I certainly saw them.

So let it be known that we at Superior Scaffold are always trying to make it safer for the public out there.  Are we proud of these?  Not really.  But they do serve their purpose.  And if people are going to continue to meander the streets of everywhere with their heads down firmly planted in their mobile devices then this is what we will have to do to make sure something catches their eye to make sure they make it through safely.

So the next time you wander through a construction site in anywhere USA – take a moment to look up and actually see where you are going so you don’t trip over our BRIGHT YELLOW WARNING TRIPPING HAZARD signs.

Thank you.

Real Housewives of New Jersey haunt gets shored up – Shops at Riverside, NJ

The Shops at Riverside is a very high-end mall which caters to the affluent suburban areas surrounding Hackensack in Bergen, Essex, and Passaic Counties in New Jersey as well as Rockland County in New York State. In addition, a number of shoppers from New York City, particularly Manhattan, are drawn to the mall for its upscale offerings minus the New York sales tax on clothing.

The mall is known to have some Real Housewives of New Jersey guests from time to time.

Now, our trusted bargain hunter – shopper extraordinaire can vouch for this since he secretly IS an honorary member of the RHONJ and shares close ties with the other chapters.

But on this occasion he wasn’t hunting for the latest Manolo Blahnik’s or Versace he was helping shore up the parking structure next to Saks Fifth Avenue.

Even the prettiest of things needs a touch up now and then (just ask Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star – Camille Grammer).  But the deep underbelly of the parking garage needed some immediate attention.

It seems that 3 of the support beams (2 under the garage and one at the exterior of Saks Fifth Avenue) were compromised. The expansion joints that were put into the concrete encasement in 1977 were starting to fall apart. Water was getting into the masonry and rusting the columns.

Engineers thought it best to repair or replace these faulty supports. So the call went out to the ultimate shopper (Pat “Garage Sale” McAndrew) at Superior Scaffold to supply the shoring. Crews shored up the beams attached to the columns so they could be repaired or replaced.

You can see from the pics that this was more complicated than they first thought. A portion of the wall into Saks had to be removed to get at the 3rd support column.  And most of the work had to happen above the drop ceiling in the garage – yes, a drop ceiling inside the parking garage (that’s fancy).

Here you can see them shoring up the beams from the lower level of the parking garage. Engineers required steel beams on the floor to help distribute the load up above.

These are 20 kip shore posts and hi-load frames in the parking garage.

Let’s hope that Pat and his crack team of surgeons/scaffolders can help this mall age as gracefully as the fabulous Lisa Vanderpump.

This a glimpse behind the scenes of the glamorous facade.  Soon, Saks Fifth Avenue and the Shops at Riverside will be once again ready for their close up.

So if your building is in need of a nice lift and tuck – call  Pat at Superior scaffold (215) 743-2200 and he’ll bring the equipment to get it looking shiny and new.

The Shops at Riverside is a two-level enclosed upscale shopping mall, located in Hackensack, New Jersey, United States, off of Route 4, along the Hackensack River. The “lavishly appointed” mall opened on March 10, 1977 with 620,000 sq ft (58,000 m2) of retail space, which included a 237,000 sq ft (22,000 m2) Bloomingdale’s (expanded from an original freestanding site opened in 1959) and a 107,000 sq ft (9,900 m2) Saks Fifth Avenue.[2] Until 2005, the shopping center was known as Riverside Square.[3]

Positive customer reviews and why we do what we do

Positive customer reviews are the lifeblood of a business like ours.

For most of our guys it’s a thankless, rock and roll, solve the problem, on to the next job kind of existence.  So when we get an unsolicited customer review like this it makes our day.

I want to thank you for your partnership during the recent water treatment plant project. I set a very aggressive deadline of Friday, August 29th, which everyone said could not be achieved. What I saw was nothing short of perfection. Your employees worked seamlessly to execute a critical project in record time. What I saw was business partners acting in a safe and efficient manner to get the job done. It is partners like you that we need to be successful in this business environment. C. Douglas Brown, Executive Director — Major Projects and Technical Services Interim Refinery Manager Axeon Refining

How fitting is this?  A super tall canopy at Torre Big & Tall Men’s store at 1217 S. Broad St, Philadelphia, PA.  Now, I know what you’re thinking.  Did we erect this jumbo sized overhead protection system for all of the giant men that enter the store from the street?  Well, yes and no.  There are some very tall customers that shop at Torre’s (that boasts the biggest and best independent collection of tall designer fashions in the word) but it’s really to protect those clients from the demolition of the building next door.

Yes, they are tearing down the 3rd Regiment Armory building for a new apartment building and multi-use structure as part of the redevelopment of the area.  And what a great history and story on that old building…  You can read more about that at the bottom of this post.

So Superior Scaffold erected this is a double-decker aluminum overhead protection system.  It’s two stories tall! It’s not as long as most of the ones we erect but it’s taller than most. The dimensions are 28’ high X 10’ wide X 32’ long.

Only Superior builder/salesman, Pat “Laddy” McAndrew can answer why they decided the build this tall canopy the way they did.  He might also be able to answer why such a beautiful old structure had to be torn down next door as well.  Either way, for all of your scaffold, scaffolding needs call Pat at Superior Scaffold – 215 743-2200 today!

Love in an elevator – Mast Climber at Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia, PA

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia are joining forces to provide health care to children and adults in South Philadelphia. They are relocating two existing clinics, a CHOP-owned pediatric primary care practice currently located in South Philadelphia, and the City-owned Health Center, which serves children and adults into one new building.

They called Superior Scaffold to install mast climber work platforms inside the elevator shafts to assist the wall construction inside.

I know we’ve shown you one mast climbing work platform in an elevator shaft this summer (at Eagles stadium) but this one is a touch taller than that one. This one spans 300 feet from the ground to the top of the elevator shaft. Yep. That’s a tall order but what a smart way to construct the inside of an elevator shaft.

And just look at how snug that MC-10 is in there.  Like a glove.  So tight in fact, that crews often ask if it was designed for this very purpose.  It’s not but we can certainly say it’s becoming more common to use them in this manner.  It’s a match made in heaven.

There is plenty of room for workers, gear, and material. As you can see from these pics the bricks are already up and now crews are putting on the insulation board and getting them finished.

Superior provided two MC-10 mast climber platforms (one for each shaft). This is the inside of the new building – just to give you an idea of where they were located.

So the next time you think elevator shaft – think Superior Scaffold and mast climber. I know that’s a reach but seriously, look at what a perfect fit they are.

For all of your scaffold / scaffolding needs call Superior Scaffold at 215 743-2200 and ask for the king of swing – Bob Sarkisian.

Superior Scaffold is built Ford tough

Some jobs go off just as planned and then others…well, let’s just say need a little extra attention.  You see, from the outside a job looks one way and then from the inside it turns into an entirely different animal.

Pacific Ford was one of those animals.  A simple shoring job to create a large display room and offices overlooking the service center turned out to be more than anyone imagined.  But because we have the best guys in the business – it wasn’t anything we couldn’t handle.  Just like Ford trucks we can go anywhere and do just about anything.

Just giving you a peek of what’s to come…

Pacifico Ford, serving Springfield, PA & Camden, NJ, wanted to expand the working space for their service guys so they decided to remove an entire wall facing the drive-in service bay.  No problem.  Oh, and they wanted both the service bay to be open every day for business as well as the offices on the 2nd floor above.  Again, no problem.

In order to do that they called Superior Scaffold to shore up the wall so giant steel beams (headers) could be put in place to support the 2nd floor above the opening.

You can see the start of the job was to cut holes in the wall where the needle beams would go to help support the office on the second floor.  This is where the entire 40’ wall or span was going to be removed to make the new opening.

First obstacle – the electrical up in the ceiling hiding behind the ceiling tiles had to be moved.  Yes, moved.  We needed to get our high load frames and kip shores up there.

Ths is the start of the shoring.  Needle beams support the offices on the second floor while the demoliton goes on below.

The other end of these beams need to be supported as well.

Up on the 2nd floor, these are the other end of the needle beams that we saw sticking out of the wall at the service bay.  They are now part of an elaborate shoring system that also carries the weight of the roof.  I hope this makes sense.  It’s like a giant 3 layer cake all supporting each other.

The containment wrap is up and the wall is about to be removed.  Remember, this is all while the service bay remains open for business.

There were actually two areas in the service center that were being expanded and this was the second.  These walls were being removed as well to make an open area and offices.

The wall has been removed.  You can see the beams, frames, and post shores holding up the floors above.

This is where the real fun begins.  Second obstacle – After the wall was demo’d engineers realized that the standard support beams would not be enough for the new addition and crews were brought in to dig/remove/excavate enough room for helical piers.

What is a helical pier?  Well, glad you asked.  A helical pier is a steel shaft, usually square with helices, similar to a large screw that provides a foundation support for various types of structures. Helical piers are often used when challenging soil conditions prohibit a traditional foundation system. They are also commonly used to correct and support existing foundations that have settled or failed.

The purpose of a helical pier is to transfer the load of the structure through the unsuitable soil to a stronger, more suitable soil deeper in the earth. Helical piers are a deep foundation solution.

And that’s exactly what we had here – difficult soil conditions and the need to correct an existing foundation.   We had to make room for the excavators while still supporting the floors above.  Surprise – our small shoring job has just grown exponentially.

Here you can see where the crews took jack hammers to the existing floor and dug trenches for the helical peirs.  You can even see the helices in the dirt in the trenches.

Third Obstacle – Our biggest concern was that the crews digging and removing dirt and cement would compromise the integrity of the ground supporting the 2 floors above.

In the end, the new bay looks great and the offices on the right side are in and running smoothly.  Proving once again that Superior Scaffold is truly built Ford tough.  Crews and engineers overcame all of the obstacles and challenges thrown at them to get the job done right.

Call Pat for your next job – he promises to bend, shape, morph and adapt as needed – although, he’d prefer to have most of it worked out ahead of time.  Heck, wouldn’t we all.

The Texas Capitol building is surrounded by 22 acres of grounds and monuments and is well worth a visit.

There are many food vendors serving out of mobile trucks. You can find them all around the city and their food is surprisingly very good.

And for you late night revelers out there – Austin is home to its very own mini Mardi Gras every Friday and Saturday night on 6th street where they close down the street for several blocks and let people run wild just like in the old west. Double and triple stacks of bars and bands provide a cacophony of blues, rock, and hip hop.

And for those of you who wanted to get tattoo’d or pierced to commemorate the occasion – there were many opportunities.

And at 2:15am the aftermath of partying all night spills out into the streets where drunken 20 somethings flock to the many pizza parlors for a sobering slice of cheesy confection.  If scaffolding ever falls through there is a mint to be made in pizza on 6th street!

Now that you have a quick primer on downtown Austin, TX let’s get down to business – the SAIA annual convention and Expo. It’s the place where everyone in the scaffold industry comes to see the latest equipment, meet vendors, elect new board members, take classes, and attend awards ceremonies honoring a host of worthy candidates. This year it was held at the downtown Hilton, Austin.

He we are about to enter the SAIA Convention when I excitedly said, “we can check out the new equipment and get a free lunch!”  Then Shawn interjected with his dry wit, “even the chickens under the porch know that.”  To which I replied, “go cork your pistol mister, I’m just sayin’.”  Then Bob piped in, “even a dead snake can still bite.”  Then Shawn fired back, “Just because a chicken has wings don’t mean it can fly.” I think he must have been hungry. At that point I decided to stop with the Texas expressions and high tail it inside.

One of the largest displays, the Bee Access / Altrex booth where product demos where going on all day long. That’s Rudie building the MiTower in the background (A one man aluminum scaffold tower that is compact, lightweight and extremely easy to assemble and transport.) They had several cool pieces of equipment that caught our eye.

The first was an Aluminum Mobile Davit that integrates with existing their 5X5 beam system and is designed to eliminate traditional scaffolding to clear higher parapets. It features an adjustable height up to 8ft and an outreach of up to 4 ft with 1000lb load capacity. Shawn took one look at this and fondly named it, “the Up & Over beam”.

And second was a Hinging Porch Bracket or Rotating Porch Bracket, if you will.

It clamps to the swing stage and folds up so that crews can travel into position – and then it folds out into place allowing for ample room to access a facade or recessed area. It’s perfect for those places with varying surface extrusions.

A little further in we ran into the guys from Sky Climber who were showing off their latest and greatest. One of the coolest features we saw was their new motor with the voltage meter built right in.

Now, that might not seem like a big deal but to have the meter right there on the motor for crews to see is a giant asset.

And the always entertaining Harrold Giddish from H&E Equipment Services, Inc and SAIA.

There was so much to do and learn we can’t possibly list it all but we did manage to meet and greet with many of our industry peers from Jay at Strong Man to Lindsey and Johnathon at Access Lift & Handlers Magazine.

Live music, great food and awesome conversation greeted us there – as did marketing genius and SAIA award winner (William T. Ayres Founders Award for Membership Growth) Ms. Nicole Belmonte.

It wasn’t all business, we did cut out with a bunch of industry partiers and ended up at Pete’s Dualing piano bar on 6th St. for some singing and laughter.

Well, it’s time to put the chairs in the wagon and say goodbye to Austin, TX, another convention in the books. We made many new friends and got to visit old contacts as well as see new products and services for the scaffold industry. A success! We look forward to next year where it will be held right here in Philadelphia!

Anyway you want it – Renovations at Passariello’s Pizzeria & Italian Eatery, Moorestown, NJ

They say that making a great pizza starts with the crust.  Now, I have to disagree slightly – because I think that the foundation of a truly good pizza lies in the sauce.  But for hypothetical purposes just go with me here…

When Passariello’s called Superior Scaffold and asked if they could build a strong foundation out of the back of their restaurant for their renovation project we gladly accepted.  You see, the guys at Passariello’s Pizzeria – Italian Eatery had designs to renovate their bathrooms and their kitchen but had to remain open for business while doing it.  And just like on a pizza – they needed a strong platform to put their equipment (toppings) onto.  So we came up with a design that was exactly as they wanted it.

So how did they accomplish these renovatons?  Well, by breaking them into 2 phases.

Phase 1Bathroom Renovation – Build a platform out of the back of the restaurant where customers could walk to a very fancy portable restroom.

Passariello’s cleared out a section out of the back of their structure towards the parking lot.

Then Superior came in and used system scaffold with shoring heads and aluminum beams to construct the 16’ X 50’ platform that utilized the double doors out of the back of the restaurant. Then this platform was covered in ¾” fire retardant plywood and then topped with carpet. Like any scaffold job the biggest challenge was to get to the platform level on the uneven ground.

You can see the trailer that housed the very opulent rest rooms that was parked right next to the platform. Then the entire structure was covered with an enclosure to keep the elements at bay. The design allowed customers to exit the building through the double doors and safely walk on the very sturdy platform to the bathrooms while the ones inside were receiving a makeover.

Phase 2 – Kitchen Renovation.  Now, building a platform for customers to walk on to get to the rest rooms is one thing but moving the entire WORKING kitchen out back – is another.

Once the bathrooms were finished, Superior crews dismantled the platform and moved the entire operation over to utilize the double doors and make more room for the larger kitchen area. Using the same type design incorporating system scaffold, shoring heads, aluminum beams, and plywood they built another platform that would hold the kitchen and a Quonset hut type structure. This renovation was going to take much longer than the bathrooms so the entire platform needed a more permanent cover.

Needless to say that the building of the crust (foundation / platform) went off without a hitch and the sauce (the kitchen) was added to the customer’s satisfaction. All in all, Superior built a pretty good pizza platform for Passariello’s. I’ll add some pics of the kitchen on the platform when I get them.

As the band Journey once sang “Any Way You Want it” – is just what Superior Scaffold can do for you.  Give Pat a call at (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com and he’ll take care of you.

Some information on Passariello’s –

www.passariellos.com/

Pasquale Passariello’s idea was to combine several different food offerings, like in a food court, into a single restaurant concept. Thus the Passariello’s Pavilion idea was born! The Pavilion concept would provide a large variety of authentic Italian upscale pizzas, entrées, salads, sandwiches, and dessert options in a quick-service, casual dining format.

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center – New 178,000 square foot advanced care pavilion

Penn Medicine began construction on their new 178,000 square foot advanced care pavilion (Powelton Avenue and N. 38 Street) and called swing stage specialist Bob Sarkisian at Superior Scaffold to provide the suspended scaffold necessary to get the facade work done.

This is an enormous job with many phases. We have had as many as 25 swings on and around the building (including inside the elevator shafts) at any one time.

This is a three step process for our crews – first the vapor barrier had to be put up, then the blue board (panels) and then the final facade of the building.

The first was getting roof clearance by elevating the beams – and you can see from our on the job photographer, Charles “Chad” Larzelere, we did just that. It’s not often we show what the job looks like from the top when we talk about swings but these photos give you a bird’s eye view.

We also had to line up all of the platforms (in sequence) so the crews could complete the work without having to move the entire rig.

And last, we added porch brackets on the backside of the swing stages so the panels could be loaded on and moved to their specific locations.

If you look at the center of the swing staging you will see the bracket.

We will keep you updated as the building progresses.

So if you have a project that requires suspended scaffold – call Superior Scaffold at (215) 743-2200 and ask for the “Sultan of Swings” – Bob Sarkisian, he can design a system for your needs no matter how large or small.

And as a little treat for all of you swing fans out there…

Here are some details about the new building from the Penn Med website – as well as a video detailing their new pavilion.
