Down in a hole – Penn Tower Walkway and Overhead Protection

Superior Scaffold installed a 200 foot long walkway/loading dock with overhead protection right next to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology building.  It is adjacent to the massive hole where the old Penn Tower used to sit. It serves a dual purpose; giving access to the loading docks of the museum and also providing a way in to the new structure coming out of the ground.  We erected a bridge column canopy or overhead protection system. The GC laid down the pilings and structural steel foundation for us to build upon.  We put our aluminum beams down and then decked...

Pulling back the curtain for opening night. Restoring the Forrest Theater.

The Forrest Theater is a beautiful, classic, playhouse built in 1928 and located at 1114 Walnut Street in the Center City area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Built at a cost of $2,000,000 it was one of architect Herbert J. Krapps more elaborate theaters. The interior is intricately decorated with gilt detailing (silver gilded with gold) and silk fabrics.  And that’s exactly why Superior Scaffold was brought in.  We provided the painting and restoration crews access to the entire perimeter of the theater, including the walls, ceiling and all surfaces, so they could restore it to it's former glory.

Reading Terminal Market, Giant Work Platform and Overhead Protection System, Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold installed a 580 foot long work deck or platform on both sides of the barrel shaped Reading Terminal Market (RTM) to give crews access to replace the roof. The platform is 6 feet wide by 8 feet high by 580 feet long and allows crews to roll their equipment and material from the mast climber at one end to their location anywhere along building. Reading Terminal Market is a sprawling, somewhat chaotic, indoor farmer’s market and food haven where over 100 merchants offer culinary treats, fresh produce and unique merchandise.  It occupies an old train shed that was built in 1893 and is located at...
