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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The entire renovation is a site to see.

These are just two unique scaffold jobs in a vast array of fun and out of the box jobs Superior Scaffold erects all over the city. I will bring you more as I get approval.

And for today’s musical selection we present an oldie but goodie from local greats the Hooters. “You can’t get to heaven on the Frankford El…” Thanks for the selection, Patrick McCakes.

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.

If you have a multi-story commercial job with hard to reach places call Bob Sarkisian at Superior Scaffold, (215) 743-2200 and he’ll design a custom solution that meets your needs, just like he did here.

 

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.
