Scaffolding & Containment Wrap for Swimwear Company remodel

Superior Scaffold was called out to provide a system scaffold and containment wrap (enclosure) so crews could demo the front of this store and remodel it – during the winter months.   Containment wrap is great for keeping the heat in and the elements out when working in cold conditions.

This was the old Cameo Water Wear store in Ardmore, PA specializing in swimwear and weekend wear. I can’t say if they are the ones doing the remodel or if there were actual swimsuit models in there  – sometimes we are privy to that information but not always.

However, this scaffolding was unique, in that, we had to make a U shape out in front of the store so the crews would have room behind the containment to work. We brought the scaffold away from the building 6 feet and then down the front 43 feet and then back into the other end of the storefront 6 feet. And then crews had to position the containment wrap around the scaffolding locking it in place and keeping the elements out.

The entire scaffold was 26 feet high. And if you look up you can see that we pitched it for the rain and snow to run off. We also installed several sections of decking (some next to the building and some out 6 feet) so crews would have access to all parts of this project.

The before shot shows what the storefront looked like in the summer. It also shows several of our biggest obstacles on this job – the giant trees out front.

But we delivered and installed it with aplomb, ever mindful of the landscaping.  The client installed the plywood barriers out front.

A 117 foot tall stair tower inside an elevator shaft. Wow!   Here’s a cool view before the the decks went in.

Now that’s a seriously tall stair tower. (And inside an elevator shaft no less.)
So that begs the question – Why?

Okay – so let’s shed a little light on this subterranean scaffold soiree. You see, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is commencing on a renewal and expansion of epic proportions. And it’s designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry (famous for the expressive sculptural forms of buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum in Spain).

This new expansion is going to utilize space that has never been used before – mainly the lower, levels and two top floor areas. Guests will be able to enter from the north (Kelly Drive) and the south (Schuylkill River) sides of the building to get to these new spaces.  In total the renovation is estimated to cost about $350 million.

Surprisingly enough, there just happened to be an elevator shaft that was designed into the original building but was never used. So as part of their master plan, designers and contractors wanted to seal off the top two floors of the elevator shaft for new cement up there. (to expand exhibit space)

This project is two fold, really. First, to get crews up to the top (or bottom of the new floors) to build the steel forms for the new concrete (pocketing steel beams into the shaft walls) that support the floor slabs of concrete that will be poured from above. And two, to get crews, subcontractors, contractors, and workers inside the shaft to lay in all of the mechanicals, conduit, electrical, HVAC, and new elevator rails to make this fully functional.

Superior Scaffold came in and assembled this giant 117’ stair tower inside the elevator shaft using system scaffold.

These shots are from beneath the Museum of Art and showed just how crews had to enter and move the equipment to the job site.

But the cool thing is that all of this is part of the new construction design and will be utilized for art space and events. Just take a look at some of the renderings they have created to show what the final concept will look like.

This vaulted underground walkway, long closed to the public will become a space for art and events, with entrances at the north (Kelly Drive) and south (Schuylkill River) sides of the building.

This awesome renovation will be a massive and beautiful once it’s all complete. A total of 80,000 square feet of new public space—a 60 percent increase—is anticipated. We are excited to have been a part of this new expansion and renewal. Even Rocky Balboa would be proud to run up these steps to gain entrance.

Sparks fly at Bahama Breeze

This particular location in West Windsor, NJ used to be a large Barnes and Noble store – and now it’s being converted into a new Bahama Breeze. The 26-year-old MarketFair shopping center is in the middle of design changes and a rebirth that promises new stores and lots of food.

Superior Scaffold provided the scaffolding and shoring to support the giant steel girders overhead. You can see the enormous beams that had to be supported while crews cut them down.

They left the ridge beam but the lower 4 had to go (for a new addition).

But getting to those girders wasn’t an easy feat. You can see a large utility closet that would have to be used to hold 1 of our 4X4 shoring towers.

And to boot, we had to assemble them all around the spider’s web of electrical conduit and machinery.

Even on the outside of the utility room there wasn’t much room for our shoring, scaffolding or contractors to reach the upper steel beams.

These are all good shots to show you just what our estimators look at when they are determining the best solution for a scaffolding problem.

In total, we had 4 shoring towers. 1 in the mechanical room, 1 outside the mechanical and then 2 outside.

You can see our 4X4 hi load frames and shoring towers.

But when we did shore up all 4 of those giant beams, girders, rafters – the sparks really began to fly!

Crews used a scissor lift to get high enough to cut the giant girders.

The job went off without a hitch and we were proud to be a part of the MarketFair redevelopment project.
