Transport Platform, Mast Climbers, The Residences at Mid-Town Park, 9th & Orange, Wilmington, DE

Superior Scaffold does its part to help the rejuvenation of Wilmington’s central business district. We provided our TP-2500 transport platform and several mast climbing units to help BPGS construct this $75 million, 231 unit luxury apartment complex in downtown. The Residences at Mid-Town Park, located at 820 N. Orange St, are getting high end amenities such as 12,000 square feet of retail space, a 511 space parking garage, demonstration kitchens and dog-washing stations in each unit. The Residences also will feature an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and screening room. It’s all in the plan to create change in the struggling...

The Pavilion, Penn Medicine, Multiple Stair Towers

This is one of those jobs where I can let the pictures do the talking. It's a giant project and just seeing the scope is inspiring. The Pavilion will be a new hospital facility that will house 500 private patient rooms and 47 operating rooms in a 1.5 million square foot, 17-story facility. I’ll  include the finished rendering so you can see what it's going look like. I will say that we have had 8 – yes – 8 stair towers in this massive hole over the past year in various locations and we will be erecting the 9th this week. Several...

Send me your money – Overhead protection and suspended scaffold at 1900 Market St.

It goes like this. You take your hard earned cash and give it to a stock broker who promises to make you a rich man. He says, “stick with me son, you’ll be farting through silk.” And since you don’t know jack about stocks and bonds only that you’ve seen these arrogant young punks driving around in Maseratis, Teslas and Ferraris you assume that they know what they are doing. So, against your better judgment - you send him your money. Maybe you check in with him maybe you don’t, but a few months later he calls and says, "wow we are...

New Construction, The Alexander, 1601 Vine St. 14 swing stages!

New building construction.  That’s not something you see us writing about at Superior Scaffold.  We tend to show you the work we do renovating the classic old buildings.  But we actually do quite a bit of new building construction.  I just tend to focus on the old architecture because they make really pretty pictures.  Ha.  Don’t tell my boss. But when the guys at Armor Masonry brought us along for this job we thought it was a great opportunity to showcase some really complicated work on the Alexander – a new 32-story residential tower located on the North side of Center City. It’s...

Say Something. 1617 JFK Blvd., Canopy, Overhead protection around entire block!

Most of my posts are written and then I come up with the musical theme but this one was written the other way around.  I heard the song and thought it was fantastic but when I saw the video it just moved me.  It's one of the coolest combinations of film and music I've seen in a long time. (scroll to bottom) This is one beautiful job – you can’t deny.  When you see it you just know it is quality, love, and beauty.  Since this is a blog and the idea is to Say Something about the work we do and...

Cantilever landing deck at Bryn Mawr Hospital

These are the kind of jobs that intrigue me. It’s not huge but it’s very cool and was designed for a unique purpose. Superior Scaffold was brought in to help Philly D&M solve a problem. They needed more room to fly pre-fabricated wall panels up with a crane and then land them somewhere so there was enough room to lean them over and pull them inside onto the floor where they could be placed. We designed a 23’ X 12’ cantilever landing deck that protruded out of the seventh floor giving crews just the extra room they needed to maneuver the large...

Superior Scaffold congratulates the Super Bowl LII champion Eagles!

What an unbelievable game it was! And what a season this has been! I’ll admit I’m normally not a huge football fan but how can you not get fired up watching the Eagles overcome adversity and go on to win the Super Bowl! What made me an Eagles fan? Well, it started back in October with a special tour through the Link and an opportunity to meet resident badass, defensive end, Brandon Graham. https://youtu.be/msafVeGHaRc And it was his strip sack of Tom Brady that pretty much sealed the win! He’s a super nice guy and one heck of a player. And then we got a tour...

You want to keep those sidewalks open for all of the pedestrian traffic possible. I will...
