Two tiered scaffold platform system – Academy House lobby

I love to see our guys get creative with a scaffolding design. Not because they want to but because the location dictates the layout.This multi-tiered, multilevel scaffolding in the lobby at the Academy House Condominiums was just that kind of project from the base all the way up four stories.Crews needed to get to up to the plaster ceiling, 4 floors up inside the entry way, as part of their new remodel. Sounds like an easy job – until you look at the contour of the atrium and the amount of access they needed.  You can see from the photos...

Mast Climber & Suspended Scaffold at Parkway Condos

The luxurious Parkway condos at 2601 Pennsylvania ave., Philadelphia, PA needed to give crews access to the entire façade of their building, for repointing, masonry and window work, so they called Superior Scaffold. This was a perfect time for our resident Mast Climber & swing stage expert, Bob Sarkisian, to snap some photos of just what goes into erecting a mast climbing job. This is our heavy duty twin mast climber (MC-3615) capable of holding as much as 8,000 pounds on one work platform. The mast sections are light compared to other heavy duty climbers, only 110 lbs. easily installed by two...

Cantilever scaffolding 28 floors up at 3601 Market Street

How would you describe working 28 floors up, protected by only your safety harness…?  I’ve seen it but luckily I don’t have to be the one assembling it. I have the utmost respect for our crew guys that do this everyday. It can get hairy “up air” so our guys have to be extra careful. Winds and elements can have a big effect on erection. Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the steel super structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street. If you look to the top right of...

Suspended Scaffold & Overhead Protection Watermark Building

The Watermark at Logan Square is a retirement community in Center City, Philadelphia providing independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care in a continuum of care. Crews were doing a mixture of façade repair, restoration, caulking, painting and patchwork. This was a multi-discipline set up for the Superior Scaffold Dream team. (Suspended scaffold & Frame divisions) We had to assemble an outrageous overhead protection system (canopy, sidewalk shed) at the base of the building on multiple levels so they could keep the business up and running while repairs took place overhead. And the swing stage team had to get...
