Superior Scaffold adapts scaffold for shoring at CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia)

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the oldest and top ranked children’s hospital in the United States, called Superior Scaffold to first come out and scaffold in a stairwell for removal of lights and mechanicals in a research center building on their new campus.
