Thrill of victory canopy (on Jersey Barriers) in Old City!

Spanning the globe to bring you constant variety of Scaffold.  And this is certainly the thrill of victory – because in the shadows of the Ben Franklin Bridge sits a unique feat of engineering.  A canopy!  All right, calm down all you adrenaline junkies out there (you know who you are – Bee) I’ll get to the point.  This isn’t just your ordinary canopy, no.  This one sits on top of Jersey Barriers.  “How you doin’?” Is this the first time we’ve ever done these?  No.  And it won’t be the last but it is unique and something fun to see to...

Put your weight on me (or Mirror Mirror) Shoring at Moorestown, NJ High School.

I’ll be the first to admit that among the scaffold disciplines, “shoring” isn’t necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing.  Most of the time it’s relegated to the dark dingy crawl spaces deep underground but every now and again we get to shed some light on this creature from the underworld.    This time, we have a mirrored image on the exterior so you can actually see what normally goes on in the inside!  Yes, this pillar of shoring, if you will, is replicated on the inside of the school - with the exception of the additional floor supports. Superior Scaffold was called out...

Divine Intervention – Access and Renovation of Biblical Proportions!

This is a giant job with many phases.  Just scroll through the pictures and you'll see its size and scope.  I'll do my best to condense all of the parts into a cohesive post.  So here goes!  Superior Scaffold was brought in, by General Contractor – Domus, Inc., to provide the scaffolding and shoring support to give crews complete access to the exterior of this 10-story structure for a massive renovation. This is part of the $44 Million redevelopment of the Divine Lorraine Hotel.  In a nut shell, this beautiful hotel is coming back to life.  And what a life its...

Superior Scaffold provides access to crews at Denbigh Hall, Bryn Mawr College

This is one of those jobs where we can let the pictures do the talking (well, for the most part).  As most of you know, I didn’t get the nickname “Jib-Jab” for no reason.  But I promise I’ll try to keep this to a minimum. Superior Scaffold does love to work on historic buildings and we’ve build a reputation for being one of the best at getting in, erecting and getting out without leaving a trace – and this job was no different.  We had to take the utmost care around this structure and the grounds built in 1891.  Denbigh is...

Upper Moreland High School Swimming Pool Deck and Rolling Towers

Now, this is the second way to scaffold a swimming pool so crews can get to the inside ceiling area for work, renovation or additions. The first way, as we showed you, in this article at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, was to scaffold the entire pool and then continue the scaffolding right up until just beneath the ceiling where we added a deck or dance floor.This way can be used when there are only sections of the ceiling that need to be addressed.  We scaffold the entire pool area and then deck it in using steel plank and ¾” plywood to...

Bryn Mawr Hospital Emergency Entrance Canopy

This is cool.  You get to actually see some photos of the guys erecting an overhead protection system.  Superior Scaffold has several canopies around this Bryn Mawr Hospital complex, but let’s focus on this one for now.  It’s at the emergency entrance where the ambulances pull up and drop off.  There is construction going on all around this place.This overhead protection system probably seems quite normal but there a few unique features to it that I need to point out.  First, let’s describe some of it as we see the guys erecting it.We start by having the equipment delivered to...

Superior Scaffold Races into Indianapolis for the SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition

Yes, it was scaffold convention and exposition time again and this year it was held in Indianapolis, Indiana, home of the Indy 500 and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  The SAIA (Scaffold & Access Industry Association) is a great way to see new equipment, connect with vendors, learn new things and have a great time.  Oh yeah, and our team of bad boy scaffolders came out to defend their title at the Scaffold Builder’s Challenge (I’ve already spilled the beans on that but I’ll recap it for you here).And then it culminated with a party at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and racing around the...

1818 Market – Canopy, Overhead Protection, Variations on a theme

I know. It’s a canopy, an overhead protection system, a sidewalk shed, something that protects pedestrians as work goes on overhead. But you know me, I always look for the uniqueness in everything I report on – and this is no different. Sure, if you are driving past or walking underneath you will just think, “wow, that’s a really clean, well built, thing of beauty.”  That’s what we hope everyone says.This 40-story skyscraper in downtown Philadelphia is undergoing some major renovations including a façade restoration and window enhancements, of which Superior Scaffold was a part.  But I wanted to point...

Construction Today Magazine features an article by Superior Scaffold

Superior Scaffold is proud to have an article in the new Construction Today Magazine about our work with Vibration Mitigation at the Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.In a nutshell, the article details how Superior Scaffold was called in to provide access to help dismantle two giant, 16 foot tall, 14th/15th century Chinese Buddhist murals in preparation for the demolition of the building right next door. Click on any of the pics to read the article.These giant murals are just two of thousands of priceless artifacts that are being moved so the vibrations from the heavy equipment next door doesn't...

The Philadelphian Suspended Scaffold & Canopy

This is a giant job at The Philadelphian, a luxury condominium building located (2401 Pennsylvania Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130) just off the Benjamin Franklin Parkway directly across from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Superior Scaffold provided restoration crews, from Joseph Dugan, with swing stages (suspended scaffold) necessary to get them all over the exterior of the building.  They were doing masonry repair, metal cleaning, balcony repair and railing revitalization.Those of you who know me (KT, GB, PM) all know what a jib-jabber I can be but I really think today I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking.Oh...
