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...

Emergency Canopy & Scaffolding, 1503 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold's emergency service team was called late Thursday afternoon.We had a crew on the job within 2 hours and a complete overhead protection system in place within 24 hours!Clemens Construction was demoing the building next door and when L&I (Licenses and Inspections) went out to examine they spotted a damaged parapet on the building next door.The canopy went up immediately to protect pedestrians and traffic below. 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...

Suspended Scaffold & Overhead Protection Watermark Building

The Watermark at Logan Square is a retirement community in Center City, Philadelphia providing independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care in a continuum of care. Crews were doing a mixture of façade repair, restoration, caulking, painting and patchwork. This was a multi-discipline set up for the Superior Scaffold Dream team. (Suspended scaffold & Frame divisions) We had to assemble an outrageous overhead protection system (canopy, sidewalk shed) at the base of the building on multiple levels so they could keep the business up and running while repairs took place overhead. And the swing stage team had to get...

Overhead protection for John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls High School

In honor of 40 years of SNL (Saturday Night Live) I thought I’d post some pics of our emergency services overhead protection job at Hallahan Catholic Girl’s School. Superior Scaffold was called in to provide overhead protection so crews could repair pieces of the façade that were falling off.  If you look carefully, on this photo, you can see some of the damaged masonry work covered by blue plastic. Superior quickly erected this canopy to protect students and pedestrians coming in and around the school.  Our emergency services line is open 24 hours a day and we specialize in getting crews out...

Overhead protection for an icon at 6th and Walnut, downtown Philly

Now, if you’ve ever owned a white car you know what a royal pain it is to keep clean in the winter. That white paint shows every piece of dust, dirt, and grime that you pick up driving around. So, imagine if you are a white building, built in 1913, 7 to 8 stories tall, smack dab in the middle of hustling, bustling Philadelphia. There are cars, buses, trucks, trains and pedestrians all kicking up dust around your base. And when the wind and rain kick up all of that debris floats upwards and sticks right to your sides. And just...

St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children – Dual purpose scaffold bridge and canopy

When St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia needed to construct a pedestrian bridge from their new building to their existing parking garage – they called Superior Scaffold. We erected a scaffold bridge that had to serve two purposes, one, to get crews beneath the new pedestrian bridge so they could finish construction – without stopping traffic below, and two, to get pedestrians safely across the street from the parking garage to the main hospital. This was the main entrance so it had to remain open at all times. We came in at night and diverted traffic while we erected the scaffolding....

Iconic PNB letters come down in Philadelphia via helicopter

Sunday was a big day in downtown Philadelphia as the skyline was forever changed.  The giant PNB letters that adorned the top of the majestic, 28 story, Philadelphia National Bank building for almost a half a century were brought down via helicopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzqgEjetnj8 This isn't the first time crews tried to get the 16' tall, 3000 lb letters down.  They attempted it back in August but were only able to remove 3 letters in a four hour span.  This time they removed all of the remaining 9 letters in just around 45 minutes.  The helicopter landed the letters onto waiting trucks just...

Safety is our number one priority

It's true.  I was going through some recent pics of some posts (say that 10 times) and I noticed that they all had one thing in common. Can you see it? I would hope it was pretty darn obvious. Unfortunately, in this day and age with all of the social media, texts, cell phones, and constant distractions, the bright red frames weren't enough to get people's attention.  We had to design an even brighter attention getter to help people look up.   And unless you were absolutely blasted on Boone's Farm or stumbling from a Ray Rice smash to the head you should...
