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...

Adapting to the building’s shape – innovative solutions at The Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia, PA

The angled exterior design of the Rittenhouse Hotel by architect Donald Reiff allows stunning views of Rittenhouse Square and the city below but poses an interesting challenge for crews that need to work on the facade of the building. Traditional wisdom would say hang a work cage and move it ten thousand times or a standard platform across the jutting corners and try your best to reach in to work on the windows.  But that's where traditional wisdom ends and sheer innovative genius begins. The guys at Superior Scaffold wanted something safer and more cost effective.  And sometimes when we come up...

Suspended Scaffold & Overhead Protection at Rittenhouse Plaza, Philadelphia

Deep in the heart of Philadelphia’s most prestigious historic district (Rittenhouse Square) is this gem of a pre-war building called Rittenhouse Plaza at 19th and Walnut.  The historical structure of this building is being preserved to retain the integrity of the original design (1926). Superior Scaffold was called in to help get crews all around the perimeter of this 21 story art deco building while they give it an extensive exterior restoration.  Our experience working with historic buildings gave us the upper hand in designing a suspended scaffold plan to get crews onto the facade.  Bob Sarkisian, V.P. of Suspended Scaffolds...

Superior Scaffold hangs a whopper of a job at Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY

This is a monstor of a job.  We promised some photos and since we, at Superior Scaffold, keep our promises - here they are.   It's hard to believe that this all hangs 40 feet ABOVE the entire gaming room floor while people are hustling and bustling about underneath. They sit above the interior that is the size of 2 full length football fields.     These wings or fingers are 300 and 400 feet long!     What this project entails is getting crews up underneath the ceiling while the casino remains open for business as usual so they can get the...

How to have a positive experience with a setback – Porch brackets at 1900 Rittenhouse, Philadelphia

It’s time to pay tribute to the outsiders in our company.  Yes, it’s the swing department.  In fact, I hate to admit this but they came up with that very clever headline.  I wish I could take credit for it but I can’t. Is our swing department the “bad boys” of the company?  You tell me?  In their spare time all they do is race cars (fast cars) build hot rods, snowmobile through the frozen tundra (very fast) talk about driving fast, and taking chances.  Have you detected a theme here?  All except for the one VW building hippy who just...

Bend Me, Shape me – Superior Scaffold swings at the CityView Condos

Who would have thought that the 1960’s cult hit from the band The American Breed would have been a perfect fit for this suspended scaffold job at the CityView Condos.  But once you see what Superior Scaffold can do with modular swing stages you will understand the significance of,  “Bend me, Shape Me”.   Every now and then you run into a job that doesn’t have a flat surface – like here at 2001 Hamilton St, Philadelphia, PA 19130.  The building is unique, in that, it has 45 degree corners.  This poses a challenge for most contractors trying to do any...

Superior Scaffold and Mission Impossible at Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY

They said it couldn’t be done.  They said it was too far away.  They said it was too costly. But they were wrong.  Only the awesome staff at Seneca Niagara Casino and one lone salesman at Superior Scaffold had the vision for this $26 Million dollar remodel of their main casino floor.  And as part of the massive redesign the Casino is investing $6 Million toward a new HVAC system to greatly improve the air quality throughout the entire casino.  This will be the first major renovation of the original casino since it turned the old Niagara Falls Convention Center into...

New facade for hotel tower at Caesars Casino & Resort Atlantic City, NJ

Atlantic City, NJ is vying to become the destination spot of  choice on the East coast.  Much like the growth a few years back in Los Vegas, Atlantic City is pushing to modernize, update, and transform into the premier hotspot on the coast.

Superior Scaffold at the University of Pennsylvania, Market & 34th

University of Pennsylvania (U of P) is caulking and waterproofing the façade of their building at 3400 Walnut, (Market & 34th) Pennsylvania, PA  19104.    Superior Scaffold provided an intricate sidewalk canopy (sidewalk shed), with overhead protection, 2 blocks long that would allow construction work to go on above while keeping the businesses open underneath.    Superior also provided two suspended scaffolds (swings, swing-stage) to allow crews greater access to all areas of the façade. U of P turned to Superior because of the confidence they have for them to handle the safety requirements and guidelines set up by the city, state, and the university.  Superior...
