It’s awesome when I get to bring you stories off the beaten path. Most people don’t think art or beauty when they look at system scaffold. It tends to be a more utilitarian piece of equipment. But in the right hands it can be just as beautiful as a Rodin or a Donatello or even a Michelangelo.

Okay, maybe that’s a stretch…but look at what the artists at Grounds for Sculpture had us create for their exhibition Interference Fringe | Tallur LN

Ms. Faith McClellan had a vision and we were honored to help her carry it out. She had called several scaffold companies but none knew how to handle her ideas. “It was tough finding someone who could do what we wanted. I was happy to find your company,” she said.

And we, at Superior, love this kind of out of the box kind of challenge.

It was roughly 10 feet high with 2 levels. It was an odd shape roughly 28’ X 30’ in length. Most of the bays contained artwork by artist Tallur LN.

Only 3 of the bays were for personnel or visitors to view the installation. Those were on the top level. That level was decked solid with plywood for a smooth walking surface and had toe board and guardrails.

It was accessed via a stair tower made of system scaffold.

Grounds For Sculpture did the initial design but our team modified it where needed to work with their display. “The install team was fun to work with,” said McClellan. And we certainly love to hear that.

The installation will be open through January 5, 2020. It’s a wonderful display and we were proud to have been a part. It’s our little scaffold masterpiece – lol – to go along with their 42 acres of beautiful art! That’s right – a 42 acre sculpture park and museum in Hamilton, NJ.

Tommy can you hear me? Shoring parking garage at ACME Markets

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

How do you help a customer that needs to support the top deck of a parking garage while they repair a cut tension cable and repave?

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

You do what super Superior Scaffold estimator Tommy (can you hear me) Creighton did and that’s erect three system scaffold shoring towers to support the structure. Holy moly, you try saying that sentence three times really fast.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

The real challenge of this job was making sure that the areas that needed support were shored up so the folks at Structural Maintenance Systems could do their work. Thanks to Alternate Design Solutions for their calculations to make sure we did just that. Now, I know what you are all thinking… Given that we are learning Tommy is a savant or even a genius why didn’t he just do it?

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

Well, truthfully, he had other things to worry about like how to keep Keith Moon sitting upright on the drum thrown (no easy task, I might add), and figuring out how to lay out these towers so that delivery trucks could still get in and out to make their daily rounds.

“How do you think he does it? (I don’t know.) What makes him so good?”

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

Mission accomplished (for the towers) failed miserably with Keith Moon. Well, one outta’ two ain’t bad. OMG.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

So what did we learn from this job? Well, Tommy not only heard but he listened.

“He stands like a statue
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean”

He translated what the client needed into usable, pliable, materials and solutions. BAM! And with his “crazy flipper fingers” he and his intuition put together a mighty fine job. He’s still the “Bally table king”.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

And you thought he was deaf, dumb and blind. Heck, we all did. This guy has mad skills. He’s truly a Wizard – of some sorts.

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

When you need shoring, support, access, scaffolding or a good rock opera – call Tommy at (215) 743-2200 today and let him show you what he can accomplish with just his sense of smell. I promise he won’t show up with his Roger Daltrey, open shirted, Davey Crockety, tassled, fringed jacket contraption (unless you request it).

shoring, superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold rental, pa, Philadelphia, philly, garage

And you all knew it was coming. I fooled no one with this post. Okay maybe some…but “you won’t get fooled again” (not this album – I just had to do it) – this first clip is epic.

Now, here’s what you all were waiting for.

Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish – Wahoo’s, Swings, Overhead Protection System & Canopy Extravaganza

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

I love it when a client takes something that might not really belong at their location and makes it their own.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

That’s just what the good people at Wahoo’s on Chestnut Street did. Life gave them tilapia and they turned it into tuna.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy

Look at how they added their own decorative touches.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

Now, this wasn’t a walk in the park for our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, either. Watts Restoration was doing a total revamp of the exterior of building at 3180 Chestnut St. and needed a way to keep the pedestrians and the customers at the outdoor dining area safe while they worked high above on the many suspended scaffold rigs.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

A 200 foot long canopy down the sidewalk did the trick for the pedestrian traffic.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

That was built using system scaffold with steel and aluminum beams, overhead lighting and debris panels.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The real challenge was the outdoor dining area. This required something out of the ordinary. Bob sat down with Watts and the restaurant owner, ate his taco, looked around… and then devised a system scaffold roughly 50’ X 50’ and 14’ high that would cover the entire dining area.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The challenge was how cover the entire area and allow customers to eat outside during the restoration process. He used trusses, system scaffold, steel beams and the longest aluminum beams we had – and voilà.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

The most creative part came in the form of tying the scaffold down so it could withstand high winds. To do that, he used giant cement weight blocks (or dead man) and then boxed them in with scaffold and then put netting around them so customers wouldn’t even notice. Take a closer look at this photo.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

And then the client put giant banners on the guardrail at the top to give it their own touch.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

Mighty creative solutions on both accounts if I do say so myself.

Swings, suspended scaffold, scaffolding, overhead protection system, canopy, wahoos

When you need scaffold, scaffolding, swings, access, fish tacos, McAndrews, or creative solutions call “The King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian today and he will take care of you. Visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more info.

It’s only fitting that our musical selection today takes your some place tropical. Enjoy.

And I just couldn’t resist throwing this in as a bonus video.

Superior Scaffold provided the intricate scaffolding ramp at the Penn Museum to get the priceless, 3,000-year-old, 25,000 pound Sphinx of Ramses II to its new location 250 feet away.

It’s not everyday that you get a call to construct a ramp to move one of the world’s rarest objects 250 feet to its new exhibit location. And it’s even rarer when you have to take that 25,000 pound statue outside, through a window, across a courtyard and then back in through another window.

Superior’s crew the day of the move. Jim Anderson, Drew Watson and Matt Mahoney.

Quite the challenge if I may say so myself. But the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has used us on some other very delicate items (read about it here) so they had the confidence that we could deliver the goods.

Each piece of scaffold equipment had to be walked in because there was very little access to the courtyard.

Our crew shored up the floor beneath the giant Sphinx with hi-load frames and post shores, just as security measure, in preparation for the move to the exit ramp.

We then built an exit ramp out of system scaffold because we had height restrictions to elevate the Sphinx enough to get it through the window.

Concurrently, they removed a large window and opened the wall a bit so it would fit through the opening.

The outside ramp was constructed using hi-load shoring frames to hold the weight of the stone beast.

We started with wood sills on the entire run over the dirt/grass followed by steel beams and then a variety of hi-load shoring frames down the entire 250ft run.

Those frames had U-heads and steel beams crossed with aluminum beams then topped with solid plank and then ¾” plywood.

The plywood was then covered by a special surface that would help the air dollies float beneath the Sphinx. We also installed an elaborate maze of guardrails or stanchions along the entire route.

It took some creative layout to position our shoring frames around several pipes at the back end of the ramp.

Another window was removed to get the Sphinx into its new resting place.

And finally, we built another deck or loading platform out of system scaffold on the inside at the other end of the long ramp to receive the giant stone carving.

The Sphinx was first hoisted onto our ramp using a hydraulic lift and placed onto 4 air dollies that used compressed air and essentially floated it off the ground allowing crews to push it the entire distance.

The Sphinx is a lion with a human head and represents the power of the Egyptian king. It is carved out of a single block of red granite.

Alternate Design Solutions did the engineering on this job and they did magnificent work. John at ADS was given the weight and dimensions of the Sphinx and used soil compression test measurements to calculate the size and weight of the platform/ramp needed to make the move.  The resulting platform is something to behold.

It moved at a slow pace while hundreds of spectators watched the event.

Once to the other side of courtyard, there was only 1.5 inches of clearance on either side of the new opening for the stone statue to slide in between onto our second loading platform.

As a precaution we shored up the floor beneath the entry point as well using 20 kip shores. Penn Museum had a new floor designed and poured just to accommodate the weight of the ancient object in its new display.

A hydraulic lift removed the Sphinx from our platform and onto the concrete where it would be moved to its final resting spot.

The entire move went off as planned and it was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are thankful that the Penn Museum trusted Superior Scaffold with this priceless object.

The satisfaction of everyone involved was evident in this screen grab of our estimator, Pat McAndrew, just as the Sphinx passed the The Philadelphia Inquirer video camera.

Superior Scaffold provided our TP-2500 transport platform to crews at the historic Rodney Court apartment building (now Birchwood at Rodney Court) for a complete interior restoration.

This is a pretty cool job for lots of reasons. We had to use system scaffold to reach each level of this six-story building and then deck it in as a sort of landing platform for crews to get their materials in through windows on each floor.

To make it just a little more challenging, we mounted the mast for the transport platform directly to the building on one side and in between the scaffold to the building on the other!

It was a super creative solution to get the best use out of the large car size so sheets of drywall could be transported easily. It also allowed for access to all 3 doors on the transport platform.  In this configuration, 3,300 lbs of material or 7 men can be transported.

Crews are doing a total remodel of the inside units (kitchens, bathrooms, etc) and needed a way to get material inside the building at each floor.

This was once one of the premiere apartment buildings built before the great depression. Constructed in 1928 this six-story, L- shaped steel frame building is sheathed in cinder block and faced with light tapestry bricks. It features cast stone trimmings with a classically styled parapet.

It once had a large social hall adjoining a roof-top dance floor and garden. How cool must that have been?

Tony P took things a step further by building an elevated landing platform so equipment could be loaded on and off at two elevations and then he netted the lower level so it would be safer for everyone on the job.

He also put up netting on the surrounding fence to keep this project as non-invasive as possible for the day care next door.

He went even further by mounting the power box on the adjacent wall and then using a piece of scaffold to carry the power cable up and over the walkway keeping it safe and out of the way.

“What an incredible piece of equipment. It worked like a dream and saved us time and money on this resto,” said foreman, Hank Newburn of Ingerman Construction.  “And Tony P went above and beyond to accommodate us.” We love to hear that at Superior. Glad we could be of service.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced.

You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures.

When it opened in 1939, 2601 Parkway was a premier place to live. Archtectural Forum Magazine reported that with over 500 units, it was the third-largest apartment building in the United States and the first large residence of this scale in Philadelphia. The thirteen-story, three-tiered building featured an elegant restaurant, a beauty parlor, a florist, and other hotel amenities. It was one of the first multi-use buildings in Philadelphia.

In order to get masonry crews safely to the entire façade of this interestingly shaped building, Superior Scaffold had to provide a combination of scaffold, suspended scaffold and mast climber units.  Let’s talk about the Fraco mast climbing units first.

The old building’s power grid couldn’t provide enough electricity for a standard mast climber units so estimator Tony P recommended these gas powered Fraco units instead. Not only were they wide and stable enough to handle the crew and material to do a full masonry restoration but they also came with a crane arm that allowed material to be hoisted directly onto the unit itself.

The suspended scaffold or swing stages were the perfect choice to get crews into the recessed areas of the façade.

They are adaptable and easy to move around the hard to reach areas of the building.

System scaffold was used to create an overhead protection system or canopy for the safety of everyone passing beneath – especially the occupants of the building.

Walkways and openings had to remain open and accessible while the restoration work went on overhead.

We also used our system scaffold to build a platform and stair tower to access the Fraco mast climbing unit.

Unique Scaffold Applications, SEPTA Cantilever, Temple Rock Wall

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.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator, septa

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.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

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.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

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.

superior scaffold, scaffolding, scaffold, scaffold rental philadelphia, scaffold new jersey, scaffolding delaware, access, system scaffold, pa, nj, de, work platform, suspended scaffold, shoring, transport platform, buck hoist, elevator

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.

We’ve been all over this project and most of our work has seemed to come in and around the giant hole where Penn Tower once stood (and is now the home of the massive Penn Medicine Pavilion).

But this bridge column canopy or overhead protection system at 34th and Convention Center Blvd really stood out. First, because it was on higher ground and second because it was a beautiful piece of work.

Stretching 135’ long by 8’ wide with a 300 lb. per sq/ft rating this canopy ran parallel to Convention Center Boulevard and beneath the pedestrian walkway and new steel for the Pavilion.  We first erected 100′ of canopy and then were called back to add another 35′.

We used bridge columns here to match the giant walkway and overhead protection system we built next to the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology building. You can read about that here.

We also installed 4 foot debris panels and lighting. Client, LF Driscoll, used interlocking Jersey barriers for extra protection on the side facing the street.

Take me to Funky Town, Canopy & Suspended Scaffold, 25 S. Stockton St., Trenton, NJ

This funky building sits on the corner of S. Stockton and E. Front St. I liked how symmetrical it looked. I’m not sure what’s inside but just from the outside it reminded me of one of the old radio buildings from the thirties.

Check out the crazy radio tower on the top. RKO came immediately to mind but I know that this is modern.

So what was Superior Scaffold doing there? We provided roughly 150 feet of canopy or overhead protection on each side and a swing stage (suspended scaffold) so masonry restoration crews could get to every inch of the façade. They were brick pointing, caulking, cleaning and doing brick replacement.

We used our largest walk-through scaffold frames with steel beams, corrugated aluminum roofing, debris panels, lighting and capped it off with our lovely fluorescent warning banners on both ends.

It’s nothing fancy but I just liked the way it laid out around the building.

And our musical number today is for Pat who not only dances into work just like this but surprisingly still wears many of the clothes you will see here.
