Gonna’ Carry That Weight – Shoring Pennovation Works – Lab

Just the word Pennovation is inspiring. Maybe that’s why our crew took something as utilitarian as shoring and made it exceptional. Truthfully, they amaze me all the time. They might want to rent space at the new Lab. I’ll ask the boss. It might just be the place to be.  Let’s invent a new scaffolding system, shall we! You see, this is the home of future innovations that could shape the next decade. “The 23-acre property adjacent to Penn's campus (3401 Grays Ferry Ave) accommodates state-of-the-art facilities, researchers, entrepreneurs, and industry partners solving real world problems and translating inventiveness into viable...

Market Street Men of Steel – Cantilever Scaffold

The new owners of 1101 Market St. wanted to make some changes to the entryway and needed to give crews access to a hard to reach area. This section is literally cut into the entrance to the Aramark Tower (now the Jefferson Center) four stories up. Superior Scaffold was called in by GC, Clemens Construction, to create a cantilever scaffold where the base would sit inside the lobby of the building but would allow crews to work out under the section extruding from the building. Our cantilevered work deck had to support everyone from iron workers putting in the new steel,...

Transport Platform at University of Delaware Stadium – “Super Responder”

I heard the term “Super Responder” today. It was in the context of being an Empath. They say that some empathic people have nervous systems that react more quickly and strongly to certain stimuli than others. I personally absorb other people’s emotions whether they are good, bad, anxious or stressed. There are times when I literally have to excuse myself and let them run off of me and get re-centered again. Growing up, my friends and family called me shy, overly sensitive, antisocial and even eccentric, when in truth, I just felt things more heavily than my cohorts. Psychologists use the term...

Scaffolding St. Agatha – St. James Church, 38th and Chestnut

Working on St. Agatha - St. James Church at 38th and Chestnut is one of those rare opportunities where we get to help renovate an historic landmark. St. James was the first Catholic Church on the west side of the Schuylkill River, founded 1850. St. Agatha, 3813 Spring Garden Street, was founded shortly thereafter in 1865. In 1976 after St. Agatha suffered a second fire the two churches were incorporated into St. Agatha-St. James.  So what does it take to be able to work on an historic structure like this? It takes skill, patience, customer service, more skill, and the ability to adapt...

Multiple access units at Parkway Condominium Complex, 2601 Pennsylvania Ave.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced. You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures. When it...
