Reading Terminal Market, Giant Work Platform and Overhead Protection System, Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold installed a 580 foot long work deck or platform on both sides of the barrel shaped Reading Terminal Market (RTM) to give crews access to replace the roof.

Known as The Thomas Great Hall, this beautiful building has been designated a National Historic Landmark and has been one of Bryn Mawr College’s most important spaces since it opened in 1902.  It’s a monument to the second president of the college.  Superior Scaffold prides itself on being the best in the business when it comes to erecting scaffolding in and around historic structures without leaving a trace - and we did just that.  This may...
