Cantilever Scaffold on 28 Floor, Philadelphia, PA

This is an update to our earlier cantilever post at 3601 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA (many more photos and a video tour).If you recall, Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the decorative steel structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street.But how could we get them and their equipment out far enough to work safely on this structure at the top of the building?A cantilever scaffold from the floor below.  For those of you not familiar with a cantilever system it's basically a way to use leverage to...

Saint Mark’s Church, Philadelphia, Renovations & Scaffolding

Saint Mark's Church, at 1625 Locust St., is undergoing some renovations and called Superior for the scaffold support and access it needed. The church was founded in 1847 and actually built between 1848 and 1849 and as an historic building needed the utmost care when completing said renovations. Superior Scaffold has a long history of exemplary work on historic buildings and structures in the tri-state area so they were the logical choice. These upgrades were being done in phases and Superior needed a way to get the many disciplines (roofers, masonry crews, windows, painters, and the like) to their destinations. An elaborate...

Stairway to Heaven (Hi-Load tower and Material Hoist)

Crews install new hand-cut, Golden Jerusalem Limestone stairs at the Rodeph Shalom synagogue. The challenge was how to get the 25 treads, at 800 pounds each and 8 feet long, from their shipping crates set onto the staircase inside the building. The solution, from Superior Scaffold, came in the form of two high-load scaffold towers with an 18’ long steel beam running in between them, then incorporating a Hi Tech Patriot 1000 cable hoist to do the lifting. The hoist was able to travel along the steel beam to pick up the heavy stairs and then move them over to the particular position...

Two tiered scaffold platform system – Academy House lobby

I love to see our guys get creative with a scaffolding design. Not because they want to but because the location dictates the layout.This multi-tiered, multilevel scaffolding in the lobby at the Academy House Condominiums was just that kind of project from the base all the way up four stories.Crews needed to get to up to the plaster ceiling, 4 floors up inside the entry way, as part of their new remodel. Sounds like an easy job – until you look at the contour of the atrium and the amount of access they needed.  You can see from the photos...

Cantilever scaffolding 28 floors up at 3601 Market Street

How would you describe working 28 floors up, protected by only your safety harness…?  I’ve seen it but luckily I don’t have to be the one assembling it. I have the utmost respect for our crew guys that do this everyday. It can get hairy “up air” so our guys have to be extra careful. Winds and elements can have a big effect on erection. Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the steel super structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street. If you look to the top right of...

Maze of Hi load shoring frames for Medford Leas Retirement Community

Superior Scaffold provided the shoring support for the new edition at the Medford Leas Continuing Care Retirement Community on Route 70 in Medford, NJ. This maze of hi-load shoring frames was needed to support an 8” concrete slab with a 1.5” thick Epicore metal deck. We supplied 200 shoring frames, 800 hi-load jacks and 150 10’ aluminum beams that supported the weight while the new concrete was poured on top. Our shoring was necessary to support the structure while the new cement to cured. The biggest challenge was getting the material into the area. We used a crane to load a trailer into...

Sparks fly at Bahama Breeze

This particular location in West Windsor, NJ used to be a large Barnes and Noble store – and now it’s being converted into a new Bahama Breeze. The 26-year-old MarketFair shopping center is in the middle of design changes and a rebirth that promises new stores and lots of food. Superior Scaffold provided the scaffolding and shoring to support the giant steel girders overhead. You can see the enormous beams that had to be supported while crews cut them down. They left the ridge beam but the lower 4 had to go (for a new addition). But getting to those girders wasn’t...

Scaffolding the new pedestrian bridge at the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)

As part of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia expansion project a very cool looking pedestrian bridge was built to allow easy access from the main hospital to the new Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care.  Crews needed to get to the exterior of the bridge at the corner of Civic Center Blvd and E. Service Drive in downtown Philly.  You have to admit that this is one great looking building. You can see from this shot what a unique pedestrian bridge this is and also where crews needed to be to to finish work. Superior Scaffold came in and erected a system...

Superior Scaffold helps expand network gateway for US and Europe

Yes, you heard correctly. Superior Scaffold is an integral part linking domestic network carriers and fiber routes on the east coast and also several transatlantic submarine cable systems.

What we really are is a company that makes these connections possible by providing scaffolding that allows crews to install new fiber,...
