Superior Scaffold adapts scaffold for shoring at CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia)
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the oldest and top ranked children’s hospital in the United States, called Superior Scaffold to first come out and scaffold in a stairwell for removal of lights and mechanicals in a research center building on their new campus.
The hospital, located next to the University of Pennsylvania, then called Superior to return to the stairwell to see if they could adapt scaffolding, already in place, to provide shoring so a portion of the 8” concrete ceiling slab could be cut out and removed. Estimator and scaffolding expert, Pat McAndrew, took one look at the job and said, “no problem”. And then quickly came up with a solution to adapt the existing scaffolding into a superior shoring device.
The resulting design allowed the scaffolding to shore up the slab so it could be removed. It’s this kind of quick thinking and customer service that makes Superior Scaffold number one in the Tri-State Area.
