Scaffold solutions in tight spaces – Bryn Mawr Hospital mechanical room

I wish that every job could be as expansive as Independence Hall, or Amtrak 30th St. Station or Citizens Bank Park / Philly Stadium but the reality is that a lot of the work we get is trying to come up with scaffolding solutions in very tight spaces. Our guys are some of the best at designing scaffold that will get crews access to just about any working space. The mechanical room at the Bryn Mawr hospital is a perfect example. There was virtually no room in there to get the scaffolding in - let alone set it up.  Crews needed...

Shoring Rental Division – Superior Scaffold

And for our final rental division - Shoring. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="537"] Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart[/caption] In simple terms, shoring is the act of propping up with shores.  Shoring is a general term used in construction to describe the process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed.

Shoring up Norristown, PA parking garage – concrete repair

Check out this cool shoring job at the Norristown, PA Main street parking garage in Montgomery County. The concrete beams were deteriorating and needed repair.  Superior Scaffold was called in to shore up 5 floors of the garage so crews could remove and replace the bad sections of concrete.  We shored up the supporting joists with our 2' X 5' Hi Load shoring frames so crews could work on the main cement beams.   The challenge here was that the parking garage only had a clearance of 6 feet so our normal deliver trucks wouldn't fit.   Crews had to unload the Hi-load...

Mast Climber Rental Division – Superior Scaffold, Philadelphia, PA

In the previous post we talked about our Suspended Scaffold Rental Division – and today we are going to look at our Mast Climber Rental Division – which is also a part of our Powered Access Division (along with Suspended Scaffolds). Mast climbing work platforms (MCWP) or Mast Climbers are particularly useful when access to a long span is needed so workers can quickly and easily move across the entire width of the wall or surface, at varying heights. [caption id="false" align="alignnone" width="609"] Marquis de Lafayette, Cape May, NJ[/caption] These powered access platforms are popular with masonry contractors because they provide a safe,...

Superior Scaffold Suspended / Swing Rental Division

In the last post we talked about our Scaffold Rental Division - but today we are going to look at our Suspended Scaffold or swing department – which is a part of our Powered Access Division. Suspended scaffolds or swing stages are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high-rise buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other large structures. Suspended scaffold is ideal for projects where traditional scaffolding is not practical or cost effective.  We carry the Altrex Modular Suspended Platform System that is super flexible and allows for access to the...
