Shoring & Scaffolding at Forever 21

An appropriate title for this post would be "Shoring Exposed" - because that's exactly what we are going to do here.  It's not often that we get to show a complicated shoring job because they are usually buried deep in some dark nasty place but this one had just enough light to show the details. http://youtu.be/joLUcTWduUM There were 2 phases of this job - the shoring and the scaffolding.  Let's start with the shoring first. Forever 21 is building out their new location on Chestnut street and decided to enlarge the entranceway and windows on the first few levels.  Look at how their...

Iconic PNB letters come down in Philadelphia via helicopter

Sunday was a big day in downtown Philadelphia as the skyline was forever changed.  The giant PNB letters that adorned the top of the majestic, 28 story, Philadelphia National Bank building for almost a half a century were brought down via helicopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzqgEjetnj8 This isn't the first time crews tried to get the 16' tall, 3000 lb letters down.  They attempted it back in August but were only able to remove 3 letters in a four hour span.  This time they removed all of the remaining 9 letters in just around 45 minutes.  The helicopter landed the letters onto waiting trucks just...

Positive customer reviews and why we do what we do

Positive customer reviews are the lifeblood of a business like ours. For most of our guys it's a thankless, rock and roll, solve the problem, on to the next job kind of existence.  So when we get an unsolicited customer review like this it makes our day. I want to thank you for your partnership during the recent water treatment plant project. I set a very aggressive deadline of Friday, August 29th, which everyone said could not be achieved. What I saw was nothing short of perfection. Your employees worked seamlessly to execute a critical project in record time. What I saw...

Train kept a’ rollin’ all night long – Amtrak Hamilton Station rocks a new platform

Superior Scaffold was called out to build an 1100 foot long temporary train platform at the Amtrak Hamilton Station in Trenton, NJ. Not only did crews have to work around the trains speeding past them at 85mph every 15 minutes but they had to work at night (in the dark) over a very busy weekend. (4,700 passengers per day) Imagine just getting your rhythm working when the whistle blows and you have to stop everything and wait for a passing train – every fifteen minutes. Ouch. But look at the work our crews did!  It integrates seamlessly into the existing platform. Had...

Love in an elevator – Mast Climber at Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia, PA

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia are joining forces to provide health care to children and adults in South Philadelphia. They are relocating two existing clinics, a CHOP-owned pediatric primary care practice currently located in South Philadelphia, and the City-owned Health Center, which serves children and adults into one new building. They called Superior Scaffold to install mast climber work platforms inside the elevator shafts to assist the wall construction inside. I know we’ve shown you one mast climbing work platform in an elevator shaft this summer (at Eagles stadium) but this one is a touch taller than...

Put on your sittin' britches - the Superior Scaffold boys travel where it's so dry the catfish are carrying canteens - Austin, TX for the Annual SAIA (Scaffold & Access Industry Association) Convention and Expo.
