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...

Construction Today Magazine publishes article by Superior Scaffold

Shawn MacDonald, Superior’s Safety & Training Manager, points out that many companies that rent scaffolding are unknowingly violating OSHA regulations.  He addresses the elephant in the room and offers a tremendous solution to all safety directors in the area. Read the article and learn why you must have a competent person inspect your scaffolding prior to each work shift. It’s an informative and entertaining read.  Let’s just hope that being a published author doesn’t go to his head.  A shout out to Lauren and the people at the GBCA for all of the great work they do! If you would like Competent Person...

Je suis tombé amoureux de Montréal – Or Just Send Cash! SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition

Or as the French say, coup de foudre, roughly translated to thunderbolt or it unexpectedly and suddenly seduced you – or me in this case.  I fell in love with this city.  There was something about it that I’m sure the locals can verbalize better than I.  Montreal has an old world feel mixed with a modern charm and French accents.  Who could want more?  Did I mention those accents?  Is it just me or were they out of this world? (just listen to the music cuts at the end to see what I mean). Okay, maybe I’m biased about this particular...

500 Walnut St., Suspended Scaffold and Canopy, Ultra-Luxury Housing

There aren’t too many companies that can say they’ve had a hand in constructing one of the most expensive Ulra-Luxury housing buildings in Philadelphia. This property boasts one of the most expensive penthouses that has been sold (even before the building was completed) at almost $18 million dollars. Yes, that’s million. Wow. But I guess you get unprecedented views of the city like the Delaware River stretching up to the Betsy Ross Bridge - to South Jersey - to Independence Mall and more. Superior Scaffold was called to provide access to the exterior of this 26 story luxury building so crews could...
