Cantilever Scaffold on 28 Floor, Philadelphia, PA Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the decorative steel structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street.

It’s netted in so nothing can fall off of the sides and its sturdy enough to support just about...
