Superior helps Academy of Music keep its 155th-anniversary Concert and Ball – Rolling

It was a slightly different Saturday night in January at the Academy of Music's 155th Anniversary party.  But this year the honored guests didn't leave to enjoy the entertainment - they stayed for the entire event. Thanks in part to Superior Scaffold and grand sales master Tony Pini, a special stage was extended all the way into the house with a floor that was built from the stage level to the  low rise of the theater, over the orchestra seats.  And for the first time, this allowed the guests to spread out and party all in one location. Built using system scaffold, planking...

Adding Graphics, Banners, and Advertisements to your Scaffolding Project

A capacity crowd of 46,967 braved temperatures in the 30s and intermittent snow flurries to see the visiting New York Rangers edge the Flyers 3-2, when the NHL and Bridgestone Winter Classic came to Citizen's Bank Park, home of baseball's Philadelphia Phillies. But little did the capacity crowd know what it took to get that ice onto the ground.  Weeks of preparation, hard work, and yes, advertising. Advertising?  Yep.  All over the place.  And it's a brilliant way to cover up scaffolding that might be necessary for the "behind the curtain" workings of an event like this. If you recall, Superior Scaffold wrapped the...

Superior Builds “Ice Bridge” at 2012 Bridgestone NBC NHL Winter Classic @Citizens Bank Park, Philiadelphia, PA

It's a big game.  Some even say "a holiday tradition".   This year’s game features an intense rivalry between the top two teams in the Atlantic Division as the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers battle outdoors at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia, home of the Phillies. This is the fifth iteration of the NHL Winter Classic, an event created by both NBC Sports and the NHL. Superior Scaffold was brought in to build the "Ice Bridge" that spans the fan's walkway (concourse) down to the rink itself.  The scaffolding allows the pipes that bring in the water and chemicals to...

New Copper Swages or Ferrules for Suspended Scaffold wire ropes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkAl5lSL1Fo Our Superior Scaffold Suspended expert tells us about the new copper swages. Why they are stronger, safer, and better than traditional bolt on ferrules or fist grips for wire ropes and tie-downs. Very simply put - time and safety.  Traditionally, you had to make sure each of your fist grips were tightened sufficiently before getting to work.  With these new copper swages you are safe and secure and working the minute you hit the job site. Another helpful hint from Superior Scaffold.  Also see scaffolding...

Video Tour of the Virgin Mary Statue on top of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGyQT5xBYLs Here is a video tour of the scaffolding and the Mother Mary statue on top of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, NJ. It clearly shows the damage that the earthquake did to her as well as the necessary guy-wires to hold her down in case of aftershocks. Superior Scaffold had to transport all of the scaffolding materials through a maze in the hospital and even assemble most of the sections on a lower roof and then hoist them up where they could be put into place. You can see the difficulties in just getting to the statue...

Virgin Mary statue taken down for repairs

Superior Scaffold was called back to Our Lady of Lourdes to add another level of scaffolding to the existing structure so crews could more easily remove the sections of the statue of the Mother Mary. It has been taken down in sections and sent off for repair.  As you know, it was damaged in the earthquake.   I've compiled a few of the news stories here  - including a CBS news clip in which you can see the damage directly after the earthquake and the day before Superior's emergency response team raced in and secured her in place.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/65584817@N08/6322633281/   Virgin Mary Statue Atop Lourdes Hospital...
