Chasing Steam. Somewhere in Philadelphia…

Here’s the skinny.  And I do mean “skinny” on this job, people.  You’d have to be the size of our marketing director to squeeze into this steam tunnel buried somewhere under the city of brotherly love. This utility tunnel, corridor or utilidor delivers steam to customers all around the city.  Just like most things, me included, they need repair over time. It seems there were some leaks and actual damage to the cement above that needed to be fixed.  So the call went out to the skinny guys at Superior Scaffold to give them access along two sections. The first section...

Bryn Mawr Hospital Office Building North – Canopy, Overhead Protection System

This is the second post of many about our overhead protection systems at Bryn Mawr Hospital.  As I mentioned in a previous post, Bryn Mawr Hospital is undergoing a massive $200 Million, 200,000sf Patient Pavilion addition and Superior Scaffold was called in to provide scaffolding support. This 205 foot long system scaffold canopy runs along the front side of the North Medical Office building to the garage entrance and provides a walkway for patients and pedestrians who would typically enter on the other side of the building. They are currently being re-routed from the other side of the building due to the...

1818 Market – Canopy, Overhead Protection, Variations on a theme

I know. It’s a canopy, an overhead protection system, a sidewalk shed, something that protects pedestrians as work goes on overhead. But you know me, I always look for the uniqueness in everything I report on – and this is no different. Sure, if you are driving past or walking underneath you will just think, “wow, that’s a really clean, well built, thing of beauty.”  That’s what we hope everyone says.This 40-story skyscraper in downtown Philadelphia is undergoing some major renovations including a façade restoration and window enhancements, of which Superior Scaffold was a part.  But I wanted to point...

Dancing & Scaffolding on Plymouth-Whitemarsh Swimming pool

Dancing on the swimming pool?  What?  Only if you have a retractable hardwood and steel pool cover like back in the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rha-6qG4OQ And unless you are Jesus, you are going to get wet.So what, pray tell, do we mean by this statement?  Well, have a look.Our scaffold geniuses, led by Nick Lazer, erected this massive rectangle of scaffold inside the giant Plymouth-Whitemarsh pool so work crews could tear down the old ceiling and mechanicals.Our crew delicately worked with the slope of the pool, from shallow to deep end, to provide an amazingly stable “Dance Floor” or work platform for the crew...

Shoring and scaffolding Dodge Hall, Princeton University

When the good folks at Princeton University decided to add a new elevator to Dodge Hall, and had to remove an entire interior support wall to install it, they called Superior Scaffold to shore up the entire inside of the building. Dodge is one part of Murray-Dodge Hall and was constructed in 1900. The two buildings are joined by a cloister. Not a term you hear much anymore - cloister. And for those who don’t know, a cloister is a covered walk, open gallery, or open arcade running along the walls of buildings and forming a quadrangle or garth. So...

Scaffolding for 14th/15th Century Buddhist Murals at University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology – vibration mitigation

It’s not often that we get a call for scaffolding one project right next to another but that’s just the case here.  We are currently providing scaffolding and shoring all over the demolition of Penn Tower for the new Patient Pavilion at the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.   It's a massive job that we will be blogging about soon. But the unique thing about this job isn’t just that it’s located directly behind Penn Tower at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology but it’s that we were called in to provide scaffolding services for restoration crews to dismantle...

Birds of a Feather. Scaffolding around nesting Peregrine Falcons

This is certainly a first for us in our 65 year history. We’ve erected scaffold just about everywhere and to all kinds of timetables. But we’ve never had to build scaffolding around the schedule of mating peregrine falcons.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="590"] Photo courtesy of Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC). The nest in Manayunk, PA looks very similar to this one.[/caption]It seems that the steeple of the Church of St. John the Baptist in Manayunk is the nesting place for a pair of peregrine falcons and also a protected sanctuary designated by the Pennsylvania Game Commission Bureau of Wildlife Management (say...

Scaffolding the massive front desk at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City

Superior Scaffold was proud to take part in the renovation of the 50 foot long front desk at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.  It was a great opportunity to provide a unique scaffolding platform for a renowned California artist to complete his work.  It's all part of the casinos $13 million revitalization.The artist, who will remain anonymous, was installing a series of delicate glass pieces behind the new front desk and we had to provide enough of a working platform to get the job done.  This job was done in two phases – this is the...

Shoring Peermont Substation, Avalon, New Jersey, Phase 2

This is phase 2 of a really unique electrical substation in Avalon, NJ. You really need to read the original story first to really grasp the “coolness” of this. Click on the pic or here:Phase two for Superior Scaffold entails shoring up the sub-floor or grating so that crews can drive their heavy machinery over it while constructing the structure of this building.  And by heavy machinery I’m thinking scissor lifts and such as they add the structural steel to the foundation. Obviously, this isn’t going to be just an ordinary house that sits near the beach.  In a nutshell, they...
