Scaffolding is our baby – 500 Walnut, Philadelphia, PA

We don’t just broadcast the giant jobs around here. They all have a very important place in our heart, like our children. We’ve designed them, traveled with them, built them, and then put them out into the world where they must stand alone.I thought I’d put this up because we normally show you a canopy or overhead protection system that is at the base of a building protecting pedestrians from the work going on overhead.But this is a little different. It’s a canopy at a new construction site. And it’s not on the sidewalk but in the street. And because...

Emergency Services to the rescue at 1805 Walnut St.

Crews were renovating the Alison Building, in Rittenhouse Square, and discovered a piece of the parapet was falling off.  The building was built in 1924 and is being revamped for 19 super high-end luxury apartments. Superior Scaffold got the call Friday afternoon and had a crew on the scene within hours. The decision was made to install a 40’ long, double-wide canopy (sidewalk overhead protection system) the next day.   The sidewalk shed was completed using our 767 Philly frames, steel and aluminum beams, and 3 foot high debris panels.  Barneys placed their placards on the panels to let customers know they were...

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

Superior brings the Swings and Overhead Protection to 401 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA.The $70 Million dollar renovation at 401 North Broad continues. This time we provided 1100 lineal feet of canopy (overhead protection) all the way around the building and suspended scaffold everywhere to assist in the façade restoration.  We were here on another job - you can read all about it on our blog. Our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, has swing stages all around the exterior of this gigantic building.Let’s look at the suspended scaffold first. It’s pretty cool to see the different sized platforms on just...

The four story scaffolding went up 2 days later. Inspectors were not in any hurry to get to the façade so they gave us a few extra days to erect the scaffold.One of...

Look closely – Park Towne Place Apartment Homes, PA

In a world where even the smallest details get blow up on the interwebs it seems harder and harder to get someone’s attention or interest. But this was one of those cool jobs that seemed much less attention-getting from the outset but further digging proved just how creative our designers and crew had to be.What do you see when you look the picture of the debris chute sticking out from the side of the building? A plain debris chute?  Look again.It’s a 200 foot high debris chute with access on ALL 20 floors! And in order to have a hopper...

Shine on: Shoring at Bob’s Discount Furniture

This is a great opportunity to show you before and after shots.This is the new construction for Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Deptford Township, NJ. I’m not exactly sure if they took over a building that was designed for someone or something else but Bob’s decided, heck, they needed to open up the front and sides of this storefront to let light shine on through.Well, as you can see, they needed a way to support the building while they cut the giant openings out of the bricks (façade) for the new glass and headers.Superior Scaffold was called in to design...

Scaffold Bridge for Disguised Substation in Avalon, NJ

Now, what do I mean by disguised? Check this out.  This a rendering of what the new Peerman electrical substation in Avalon, NJ will look like.How cool is that? A house!!! Not some giant, nasty looking, electrical, transformer filled, barbed wire nightmare. No. This is a working substation/house with a balcony, windows, a garage, landscaping and more. This might be common practice but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. And I dig it, baby.So that leads us to just what is Superior Scaffold doing on this project? Well, take a look at the job site. This is a far...
