Emergency Scaffolding – Why you need Overhead Protection!

I wanted to show this job because it’s very important to see why we erect overhead protection systems.Our emergency services team was called out to install this canopy around the entire perimeter of the building.

An article by Superior Scaffold is featured in Construction Today Magazine!

It's official.  Someone's ego is sufficiently inflated.  It seems that our very own marketing director has been moonlighting for the GBCA (General Building Contractors Association).  The latest issue features an article written by him - no pen name, no alias, no nom de plume to hide his identity just 3 big pages of well written prose and nifty photos crafted around the concept of "Like a Thief in the Night."The article details just how a scaffolding company (Superior Scaffold) goes about working on historic structures, erecting thousands of pounds of aluminum and steel without damaging the existing facade or outlying...

Aces High – Trash Chute at SugarHouse Casino

When it's time to take the trash out this baby will do it – in spades!Superior Scaffold was lucky enough to be able to go all in at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. As part of their $164 Million addition we doubled down and provided the debris chute and the scaffolding around it to keep it in place.This sleek unit was 5 stories tall with hoppers on each of the floors so the detritus could be moved out and into the trash dumpster at the bottom. Our scaffolding was secured to the exterior of the garage to keep...

Shine on: Shoring at Bob’s Discount Furniture

This is a great opportunity to show you before and after shots.This is the new construction for Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Deptford Township, NJ. I’m not exactly sure if they took over a building that was designed for someone or something else but Bob’s decided, heck, they needed to open up the front and sides of this storefront to let light shine on through.Well, as you can see, they needed a way to support the building while they cut the giant openings out of the bricks (façade) for the new glass and headers.Superior Scaffold was called in to design...
