Inside Out at the Kaiserman Jewish Community Center in Wynnewood, PA

I love it when I can detail a unique job and this was a perfect example.  Superior Scaffold was called into the Kaiserman JCC to help shore up the ceiling joists so crews could repair the support brackets up against wall. There were a couple of challenges – the first being that the scissor lift had to get in behind the scaffolding so crews could get to the brackets for the repairs.  Check out the picture and look to the bottom left – you will see the lift parked inside our scaffold. The second challenge was also the water – anytime you work...

SWING, SWING, SWING, at The Sterling House, 18th & JFK (pt. 3)

As Louis Prima once sang, “Swing, swing, swing” – oh wait, close… “Sing, Sing, Sing – (with a swing)” so we just added the W.  Sounds better this way.

The Sterling House (part 2) – “Can’t you hear me knocking?”

We showed you the brilliant landing platform on the 30th floor of the Sterling House Apartments (18th & JFK) in our previous blog.  See it here: It's a bird.  It's a plane.  No, it's a crane landing platform?  (part 1)  and I promised to bring you the second part.  So here it is… Overhead sidewalk protection all around this building. It's a multipurpose overhead protection system (as you will see in the following pics) not only did it have to provide protection for the pedestrians around this busy apartment building but it also had to provide support for our swing staging all...
