The art of scaffolding at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA)

 What a great looking building this is, smack dab in the middle of downtown. This is the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. It’s a historic Victorian museum and Art school (offering 19th & 20th century American works). I would have loved to enter that place everyday to learn.

Crews are replacing the entire parapet around the top of this floor of the library.Each time we do a phase it presents a new set of challenges. This was a unique scaffolding job, in that, we literally had to design and build it from the top down. That was because of the glass windows or façade on the North side of the building, directly over the library.Crews needed access to the entire parapet and that included the portion over the glass...

Aces High – Trash Chute at SugarHouse Casino

When it's time to take the trash out this baby will do it – in spades!Superior Scaffold was lucky enough to be able to go all in at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. As part of their $164 Million addition we doubled down and provided the debris chute and the scaffolding around it to keep it in place.This sleek unit was 5 stories tall with hoppers on each of the floors so the detritus could be moved out and into the trash dumpster at the bottom. Our scaffolding was secured to the exterior of the garage to keep...
