Construction Today Magazine publishes article by Superior Scaffold

Shawn MacDonald, Superior’s Safety & Training Manager, points out that many companies that rent scaffolding are unknowingly violating OSHA regulations.  He addresses the elephant in the room and offers a tremendous solution to all safety directors in the area. Read the article and learn why you must have a competent person inspect your scaffolding prior to each work shift. It’s an informative and entertaining read.  Let’s just hope that being a published author doesn’t go to his head.  A shout out to Lauren and the people at the GBCA for all of the great work they do! If you would like Competent Person...

Safety is our number one priority

It's true.  I was going through some recent pics of some posts (say that 10 times) and I noticed that they all had one thing in common. Can you see it? I would hope it was pretty darn obvious. Unfortunately, in this day and age with all of the social media, texts, cell phones, and constant distractions, the bright red frames weren't enough to get people's attention.  We had to design an even brighter attention getter to help people look up.   And unless you were absolutely blasted on Boone's Farm or stumbling from a Ray Rice smash to the head you should...

Scaffold solutions in tight spaces – Bryn Mawr Hospital mechanical room

I wish that every job could be as expansive as Independence Hall, or Amtrak 30th St. Station or Citizens Bank Park / Philly Stadium but the reality is that a lot of the work we get is trying to come up with scaffolding solutions in very tight spaces. Our guys are some of the best at designing scaffold that will get crews access to just about any working space. The mechanical room at the Bryn Mawr hospital is a perfect example. There was virtually no room in there to get the scaffolding in - let alone set it up.  Crews needed...

How to erect a canopy – Aramark Tower, Philadelphia

It's not every day that you get to see just how we erect a sidewalk shed (canopy).  We usually concentrate on the finished product and how well the client liked our work.  But today is another story.  You get to see just what it looks like before, during and after we install overhead protection on a job site.  We are going to look at the work done in the middle of one of Center City's busiest intersections at 11th and Market - the Aramark Tower. Crews usually start at night to avoid the massive traffic that will ensue during the daytime.  In this...

Superior Scaffold doing double duty

In this edition of "Scaffolding Philadelphia" we get to show you how we can do double duty with our scaffolding creations. This particular story was previously documented in the number 1 hit blog "Bend Me, Shape Me" that detailed the versatility of the altrex staging used by our suspeded scaffold division.  But this soon to be number one blog hit "Double Duty" (I can see Foreigner singing the theme song here or since this is a Tony P job - even Journey with Steve Perry) details the lower half of the job at City View. Not  only did this overhead protection have...

Philadelphia Inquirer reports Superior Scaffold to erect Canopy at Amtrak’s 30th St. Station

Superior Scaffold will provide 10-foot-high canopies around the gigantic 30th Street Station.  This is no small feat.  (Look at the photos)  In fact, this is Amtrak's 3rd largest station - it's huge.   The renovation will take several years to complete at a cost of $60 milliion.  The scaffolding will be erected to not only protect pedestrians but allow business as usual during a planned restoration of the limestone facade of the 80-year-old neo-classical building. The Philadelphia Inquirer (philly.com) reported the story Aug 17, 2013 and quoted our very own man about town, Pat McAndrew (of the naked, fighting McAndrew clan) who...
