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 it solid with plank and plywood for a super smooth, stable surface.
We provided stairs off to the side that allows crews to safely get their equipment in an out of the giant hole.
There is a gap in the platform on the left side and that is for an elevator that is to come in later.
This is going to be up for approximately 4 years.
Here’s a shot of our men who helped install this bad boy. (Jim Anderson, Nick Pantalone and Zach Campanelli).
We always love working with the University of Penn. If you should need access or scaffolding, scaffold, call Bob at Superior Scaffold today (215) 743-2200 and he’ll take care of you. You can visit www.superiorscaffold.com for more information.
And today’s musical number comes from Mr. Layne Staley and the boys from Alice in Chains. What a voice! Enjoy.
