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...

Scaffolding Firestone Library Lobby, Princeton University, NJ

We have been all over the exterior of the Firestone Library, on the Princeton campus, doing renovations so this time I thought I’d take you inside. Just like our work on the outside, Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Massimino Building Corp. to give access to the entire ceiling area at the entrance of the library. Crews needed to demo the old ceiling to replace and upgrade ductwork directly above the entryway and lobby. The biggest challenge was that the ceiling encompassed the entire entrance/exit of the library and it had to remain open for students the entire time work was being...

Unique Scaffold Applications, SEPTA Cantilever, Temple Rock Wall

Now each of these could be its very own post but I thought I’d combine them into one article of cool scaffold jobs. The idea is to show two interesting applications for scaffolding that you might not have considered. Let’s start with this cantilever work deck at the newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center (originally the Margaret-Orthodox-Arrott station and formerly named Margaret-Orthodox station). Try saying that five times really fast. It is an elevated railway station on SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line, located above the intersection of Frankford and Oxford Avenues, in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As you can see from the pics we had to erect scaffold inside a decorative steel tower that would allow...

The Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia comes to life!

The Metropolitan Opera House or Met located at 858 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia (yes, Philly has a Metropolitan – not just NY) is undergoing a $56 Million restoration as a new Live Nation concert venue. The beautiful building has been sitting vacant for years. The 39,200-square foot theater was built in 1908 by Oscar Hammerstein I and called the Philadelphia Opera House. When it first opened in it was home to the Philadelphia Opera Company and sat some 4000 people as the largest venue of its kind in the world. In 1910 Hammerstein sold it to the Metropolitan Opera of New...

Superior Scaffold congratulates the Super Bowl LII champion Eagles!

What an unbelievable game it was! And what a season this has been! I’ll admit I’m normally not a huge football fan but how can you not get fired up watching the Eagles overcome adversity and go on to win the Super Bowl! What made me an Eagles fan? Well, it started back in October with a special tour through the Link and an opportunity to meet resident badass, defensive end, Brandon Graham. https://youtu.be/msafVeGHaRc And it was his strip sack of Tom Brady that pretty much sealed the win! He’s a super nice guy and one heck of a player. And then we got a tour...

Forrest Theatre restoration makes the pages of Construction Today Magazine!

There comes a time in every man's life when they reach the pinnacle of their career and this is it for Superior Scaffold's very own estimator, Pat McAndrew. The good people at the GBCA and Construction Today Magazine have published an article about one of  his jobs!  Admittedly, this is one really cool project.  We've got scaffolding 5 stories high inside the Forrest Theater erected around the audience seats.  We provided the painting and restoration crews with a work deck to access the entire perimeter and the ceiling. We also provided scaffold and access in the attic - above the plaster ceiling...
