Superior Scaffold in the latest issue of ALH Magazine

Access, Lift and Handler's, Lindsey Anderson investigates the affect COVID-19 is having on the MCWP (mast climbing work platform) and hoist market.  Superior's very own, estimator extraordinaire, Tony P, lays it out in simple terms, "adapt and keep moving." Read what else he has to say by clicking on any of the photos for a high resolution version. Thanks to Lindsey and her crew at ALH for putting together such a great article. Let's rock!

Judgement Day, Scaffolding 402 E. State St., Trenton, NJ

“I won’t run the guilt is mine. Too long denying all my crimes. Face what I deserve. Here comes Judgement Day!"  (song below) Lots of indictments lately so I thought this post and song would be fitting. Seems that nobody wants to admit guilt in anything anymore no matter how complicit. What happened to honesty, honor and integrity? Instead, it’s all about how can I cover my own butt and not spend one single day in jail. Now, we could have a huge philosophical discussion about how wealth and influence tends to sway the judicial system but I won’t go there. Let’s just hope that...

It’s a mystery to me. Scaffolding Conwyn Arms, Bryn Mawr, PA

I do know a Bronwyn… so I had to hit the google and see just what is the definition of Conwyn. Here’s what I found. _______________ Yep. Nothing. I couldn’t even get to the root of the word. So I looked up Bronwyn and this is what it said: English language feminine given name, which is an anglicized variant of the Welsh name Bronwen, meaning bron ("breast") and gwen ("white, fair, blessed)". Left with really no answer as to what exactly Conwyn Arms meant, I turned Superior Scaffold’s resident nerd, estimator, history buff, and garbage collector, Pat, to see what he knew. And I’ll...

Scaffolding at Bryn Mawr College, M. Carey Thomas Library

Superior Scaffold was called upon once again to Bryn Mawr College.  This time we are providing restoration crews access to the facade of the venerable M. Carey Thomas Library. Known as The Thomas Great Hall, this beautiful building has been designated a National Historic Landmark and has been one of Bryn Mawr College’s most important spaces since it opened in 1902.  It’s a monument to the second president of the college.  Superior Scaffold prides itself on being the best in the business when it comes to erecting scaffolding in and around historic structures without leaving a trace - and we did just that.  This may...

Thinking outside the box: Princeton Firestone Library Phase 3

Yes, we are already on phase 3 of the renovations at the Firestone Library on the Princeton University campus. Crews are replacing the entire parapet around the top of this floor of the library.Each time we do a phase it presents a new set of challenges. This was a unique scaffolding job, in that, we literally had to design and build it from the top down. That was because of the glass windows or façade on the North side of the building, directly over the library.Crews needed access to the entire parapet and that included the portion over the glass...

North by Northwest – Scaffolding at Park Towne Place, Philadelphia, PA

Well, as we scour the city trying to bring you the greatest and most interesting feats of construction (using scaffolding of course) we find this.  And I must say, just when I think I’ve seen it all something comes along to tickle my fancy, stimulate my brain and restore my faith in creative construction techniques.Today we find ourselves on the roof of one of Center City’s premier apartment complexes. Park Towne Place premier apartment homes in the parkway museum district. Yes, just a stone’s throw from where Rocky ran up the steps at the art museum. I’m feeling rather nostalgic...

Jacob’s Ladder – Superior Scaffold’s material moving hoist system.

Now, we all know that the biblical version of Jacob’s Ladder is the bridge between earth and heaven as dreamt by Jacob and described in the Book of Genesis. The significance of that ladder was obviously greater than our version of Jacobs Ladder. But our ladder, if you will, or hoist at Jacobs Music (in Center City, Philadelphia, PA) moves heavy material from the earth skyward to its position on the façade of this structure and even to the roof of the building.Using a Patriot 1000 material hoist rigged atop of system scaffold at the top of our canopy and...
