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...

Forrest Theatre restoration makes the pages of Construction Today Magazine!

There comes a time in every man's life when they reach the pinnacle of their career and this is it for Superior Scaffold's very own estimator, Pat McAndrew. The good people at the GBCA and Construction Today Magazine have published an article about one of  his jobs!  Admittedly, this is one really cool project.  We've got scaffolding 5 stories high inside the Forrest Theater erected around the audience seats.  We provided the painting and restoration crews with a work deck to access the entire perimeter and the ceiling. We also provided scaffold and access in the attic - above the plaster ceiling...

Multiple canopies at The Gallery Mall redevelopment, now known as the Fashion District Philadelphia

Hailed as the epicenter of Center City’s revival back in 1977, The Gallery Mall is finally getting its recognition as the preeminent shopping experience in downtown Philadelphia. It opened to the tune of $105 million; big bucks back in the day. But forty years has gone by and with it so has the sheen and promises on this old structure. Jump forward to right now as three city blocks and roughly 1,000,000 square feet of redevelopment are occurring.  And when it’s all said and done it will be the largest retail repositioning project in the region.  Once called The Gallery Mall, developers...

Names can be deceiving. Canopy at Tattooed Mom on South Street

Hey, I thought awesome here’s a post for all the Moms I know who are just dying to get tattoos for Christmas.  ;)   But I was in for a little surprise when I started digging. Seems it's not a tattoo parlor at all but one of Philly’s most instagrammed eating, drinking and gathering places.  In terms of followers it's right up there with South Street’s Magic Gardens, the largest work from local mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar. Sorry all of you Moms who wanted Christmas ink but there are places down the street. All we knew was that we had to help...

“I feel pretty…oh so pretty”

“We may lose and we may win but we will never be here again. So open up I’m climbing in to take it easy.” “Dreamer I know what you're thinkin'.” “Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me.  Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee.” I’m just going to mix a whole bunch of musical lyrics today and why?  Well, I’m in a good mood and it's always fun to see if you know the songs where they came from.  Life is short people.  It really is.  So love your kids and your family and be sure to tell them.  Remember to say hello to everyone. ...
