Maze of Hi load shoring frames for Medford Leas Retirement Community

Superior Scaffold provided the shoring support for the new edition at the Medford Leas Continuing Care Retirement Community on Route 70 in Medford, NJ. This maze of hi-load shoring frames was needed to support an 8” concrete slab with a 1.5” thick Epicore metal deck. We supplied 200 shoring frames, 800 hi-load jacks and 150 10’ aluminum beams that supported the weight while the new concrete was poured on top. Our shoring was necessary to support the structure while the new cement to cured. The biggest challenge was getting the material into the area. We used a crane to load a trailer into...

Overhead protection for John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls High School

In honor of 40 years of SNL (Saturday Night Live) I thought I’d post some pics of our emergency services overhead protection job at Hallahan Catholic Girl’s School. Superior Scaffold was called in to provide overhead protection so crews could repair pieces of the façade that were falling off.  If you look carefully, on this photo, you can see some of the damaged masonry work covered by blue plastic. Superior quickly erected this canopy to protect students and pedestrians coming in and around the school.  Our emergency services line is open 24 hours a day and we specialize in getting crews out...

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...

Scaffolding the Philadelphia Museum of Art

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? Image from Reddit 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...
