Chasing Steam. Somewhere in Philadelphia…
Here’s the skinny. And I do mean “skinny” on this job, people. You’d have to be the size of our marketing director to squeeze into this steam tunnel buried somewhere under the city of brotherly love.
This utility tunnel, corridor or utilidor delivers steam to customers all around the city. Just like most things, me included, they need repair over time. It seems there were some leaks and actual damage to the cement above that needed to be fixed. So the call went out to the skinny guys at Superior Scaffold to give them access along two sections.
The first section was about 500 feet long and second section was 375 feet long. Now, normally, that’s not a huge deal but in this case look at where all the equipment had to come in from before the guys could even start erecting it. Yep, right through that little opening.
And then once it was below ground our crew had to move it along squeezing through the narrow passage ways and then maneuver back through what they had already set up to get more equipment.
Oh, did I mention it was an active steam tunnel and hot as heck down there? Extra water and Gatorade had to be provided while the guys rocked this one out.
We used system scaffold consisting of 6’ trees, 2’ spreaders and steel plank.
Is this super fancy, super big, super spectacular? Maybe not, but I wanted to show you all this because we really can provide access in even the smallest spaces.
So, if you need access in a tiny area or to an entire building exterior call Superior Scaffold today at (215) 743-2200 or visit www.superiorscaffold.com and ask for the Pat, the mad lad, and he’ll take care of you.
Since we are someplace we might as well be somewhere (in time) from Iron Maiden…
