Look closely – Park Towne Place Apartment Homes, PA

In a world where even the smallest details get blow up on the interwebs it seems harder and harder to get someone’s attention or interest. But this was one of those cool jobs that seemed much less attention-getting from the outset but further digging proved just how creative our designers and crew had to be.What do you see when you look the picture of the debris chute sticking out from the side of the building? A plain debris chute?  Look again.It’s a 200 foot high debris chute with access on ALL 20 floors! And in order to have a hopper...

Scaffold Bridge for Disguised Substation in Avalon, NJ

Now, what do I mean by disguised? Check this out.  This a rendering of what the new Peerman electrical substation in Avalon, NJ will look like.How cool is that? A house!!! Not some giant, nasty looking, electrical, transformer filled, barbed wire nightmare. No. This is a working substation/house with a balcony, windows, a garage, landscaping and more. This might be common practice but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. And I dig it, baby.So that leads us to just what is Superior Scaffold doing on this project? Well, take a look at the job site. This is a far...

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...

Scaffolding the Philadelphia Museum of Art

A 117 foot tall stair tower inside an elevator shaft. Wow!   Here's a cool view before the the decks went in. Now that’s a seriously tall stair tower. (And inside an elevator shaft no less.) So that begs the question – Why? Image from Reddit Okay – so let’s shed a little light on this subterranean scaffold soiree. You see, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is commencing on a renewal and expansion of epic proportions. And it’s designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry (famous for the expressive sculptural forms of buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum in Spain). This new expansion is going...

Passariellos Pizzaria Italian Eatery – Update in Moorestown, NJ

I promised to give you guys an update to the post we did a few months back. This is actually a temporary kitchen built on top of a giant platform that we erected out back of the Passariello's restaurant. You can see the original post here: It's not often that Superior Scaffold gets to construct a 16' X 50' platform that ties into the back of the restaurant - and then actually becomes their kitchen while the real one gets an update.  But that's exactly what happened here. Using system scaffold, shoring heads, aluminum beams, and plywood we built another platform that would hold...

Big and Tall Aluminum Canopy for Torre Men’s Store, Philadelphia, PA

  How fitting is this?  A super tall canopy at Torre Big & Tall Men's store at 1217 S. Broad St, Philadelphia, PA.  Now, I know what you're thinking.  Did we erect this jumbo sized overhead protection system for all of the giant men that enter the store from the street?  Well, yes and no.  There are some very tall customers that shop at Torre's (that boasts the biggest and best independent collection of tall designer fashions in the word) but it's really to protect those clients from the demolition of the building next door. Yes, they are tearing down the 3rd...

Superior Scaffold Suspended / Swing Rental Division

In the last post we talked about our Scaffold Rental Division - but today we are going to look at our Suspended Scaffold or swing department – which is a part of our Powered Access Division. Suspended scaffolds or swing stages are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high-rise buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other large structures. Suspended scaffold is ideal for projects where traditional scaffolding is not practical or cost effective.  We carry the Altrex Modular Suspended Platform System that is super flexible and allows for access to the...

Double Wide, frame vs. system scaffold – when to use

At first glance, what do you see?  A double-wide canopy spanning the entire sidewalk? If you did - you would be correct but there is more to it than meets the eye.  You don't think we would just toss up a double wide sidewalk shed using our famous 767-00 "Philly" frames would you?  Of course not.  What you have to remember is that this a large span we have to cover so the facade resoration can go on overhead.  And there are certain regulations that are mandated by our state as to the amount of weight this canonpy must support.  In...

Superior Scaffold ramps up for Toyota at the Philly Auto Show

Toyota set up an indoor track complete with traction ramps, water hazards, sand traps and suspension bumps giving the user the ultimate car buying experience. Patrons are invited to ride along inside the new line up of Toyota vehicles to get a real world idea of how they will perform. Toyota contacted Superior Scaffold to build the ramp that would test the climbing and traction control of their vehicles. We jumped at the chance. The ramp is 8’ high by 14’ wide and 53’ long. ...
