Reading Terminal Swing Solutions

When Premier Building Restoration needed access the to the side of the Reading Terminal Market building for restoration, they realized they had a big challenge on their hands.  There wasn’t much room and the lower roofs didn’t have the structural steel to support a big scaffold, or any scaffold for that matter. To top it off, the dome-like curved roof and jutting cornice wouldn’t allow traditional roof rigging. So how could they get their crew to the facade of the Reading Terminal Market to restore windows, masonry, pointing, caulking, you name it? They called Superior Scaffold. And as Bob, “King of Swing”, Sarkisian was...

Scaffold Artists at Bryn Mawr College

Years of designing, imagining and building has literally created a concrete playground of unlimited potential - and it’s taken the minds of our scaffold erectors to see it. Where stands architectural grandeur to the public eye – lies a concrete jungle to the guerrillas of the steel and stone.  Super heroes and artists do in fact inhabit the earth – maybe not in the forms you are used to seeing but in the sheer ability to see unique challenges and opportunities to scale buildings everyday. Staring through the stone arches at a maze of metal and brawn climbing the rock, once inhabiting...

Swarthmore College, Scaffolding Maxine Frank Singer Hall

This job started before the COVID-19 pandemic and was put on hold, like most construction in Pennsylvania. And when we came back to work – it was a NEW WORLD out there. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt and adopt a new way of doing business.   New regulations to prevent the spread of the virus on construction sites are now the norm. So much so, that when the Governor gave the go ahead for construction again we were called to install a second stair tower on the opposite end of this giant scaffold to follow the state’s new guidelines for...

Market Street Men of Steel – Cantilever Scaffold

The new owners of 1101 Market St. wanted to make some changes to the entryway and needed to give crews access to a hard to reach area. This section is literally cut into the entrance to the Aramark Tower (now the Jefferson Center) four stories up. Superior Scaffold was called in by GC, Clemens Construction, to create a cantilever scaffold where the base would sit inside the lobby of the building but would allow crews to work out under the section extruding from the building. Our cantilevered work deck had to support everyone from iron workers putting in the new steel,...

Scaffolding Philadelphia Museum of Art – Ceiling from the Zhihua Temple

It’s not fancy but this 15’ high, frame scaffold, rolling tower with a stair tower access instead of the usual hook on ladder had to be erected with the utmost care. Our scaffold was erected to help get Chinese researchers and their equipment up to the top of this 500-year-old, hand carved ceiling that was originally installed over a Buddhist altar from the Ming dynasty. The crew is using special equipment to map out the entire structure, inch by inch. Once completed, they will take their photos, data, maps, and bring them back to China where they can analyze the construction and...

Transport Platform for interior renovation at Rodney Court, Wilmington, DE

Superior Scaffold provided our TP-2500 transport platform to crews at the historic Rodney Court apartment building (now Birchwood at Rodney Court) for a complete interior restoration. This is a pretty cool job for lots of reasons. We had to use system scaffold to reach each level of this six-story building and then deck it in as a sort of landing platform for crews to get their materials in through windows on each floor. To make it just a little more challenging, we mounted the mast for the transport platform directly to the building on one side and in between the scaffold to...

Multiple access units at Parkway Condominium Complex, 2601 Pennsylvania Ave.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced. You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures. When it...

Scaffolding Firestone Library Lobby, Princeton University, NJ

We have been all over the exterior of the Firestone Library, on the Princeton campus, doing renovations so this time I thought I’d take you inside. Just like our work on the outside, Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Massimino Building Corp. to give access to the entire ceiling area at the entrance of the library. Crews needed to demo the old ceiling to replace and upgrade ductwork directly above the entryway and lobby. The biggest challenge was that the ceiling encompassed the entire entrance/exit of the library and it had to remain open for students the entire time work was being...
