Independence Hall is complete!

And boy does she look great.  As you all know by now Superior Scaffold got the opportunity of a lifetime to provide the system scaffold and scrim on the historic structure.  And now she’s ready for her close up.  I did notice a few spots that are waiting for some custom carpentry but for the most part she is back to her former glory. I won’t bore you with details – just have a look.    Congratulations to everyone involved with the Independence Hall renovation.  She looks great!  ...

It was a slightly different Saturday night in January at the Academy of Music's 155th Anniversary party.  But this year the honored guests didn't leave to enjoy the entertainment - they stayed for the entire event.

New Copper Swages or Ferrules for Suspended Scaffold wire ropes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkAl5lSL1Fo Our Superior Scaffold Suspended expert tells us about the new copper swages. Why they are stronger, safer, and better than traditional bolt on ferrules or fist grips for wire ropes and tie-downs. Very simply put - time and safety.  Traditionally, you had to make sure each of your fist grips were tightened sufficiently before getting to work.  With these new copper swages you are safe and secure and working the minute you hit the job site.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGyQT5xBYLs Here is a video tour of the scaffolding and the Mother Mary statue on top of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, NJ. It clearly shows the damage that the earthquake did to her as well as the necessary guy-wires to hold her down in case of aftershocks. Superior Scaffold had to transport all of the scaffolding materials through a maze in the hospital and even assemble most of the sections on a lower roof and then hoist them up where they could be put into place. You can see the difficulties in just getting to the statue...
