Scaffolding St. Agatha – St. James Church, 38th and Chestnut

Working on St. Agatha - St. James Church at 38th and Chestnut is one of those rare opportunities where we get to help renovate an historic landmark. St. James was the first Catholic Church on the west side of the Schuylkill River, founded 1850. St. Agatha, 3813 Spring Garden Street, was founded shortly thereafter in 1865. In 1976 after St. Agatha suffered a second fire the two churches were incorporated into St. Agatha-St. James.  So what does it take to be able to work on an historic structure like this? It takes skill, patience, customer service, more skill, and the ability to adapt...

Love, love, love… All you need is Love. Scaffolding St. Vincent de Paul Church

I saw a quote today that said, "I have decided to stick with love…Hate is too great a burden to bear," by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and it made me think. If you let hate build up over time it becomes toxic and can cause dis-ease in the body, as Wayne Dyer used to say, and destroy your health. Therefore the person we hurt the most with hate, resentment, grudges and dislike is ourselves. We are not always treated fairly or with respect, even by the ones we love but when we carry anger, hate or hurt we become...

Saint Mark’s Church, Philadelphia, Renovations & Scaffolding

Saint Mark's Church, at 1625 Locust St., is undergoing some renovations and called Superior for the scaffold support and access it needed. The church was founded in 1847 and actually built between 1848 and 1849 and as an historic building needed the utmost care when completing said renovations. Superior Scaffold has a long history of exemplary work on historic buildings and structures in the tri-state area so they were the logical choice. These upgrades were being done in phases and Superior needed a way to get the many disciplines (roofers, masonry crews, windows, painters, and the like) to their destinations. An elaborate...

Scaffolding support for facade and masonry restoration @ First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold is proud to be working on the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Philadelphia. We are providing scaffolding support for a complete facade and masonry restoration on this church constructed after the civil war. Superior was called in because of our experience working with historic buildings, especially ones that might have delicate or sensitive objects.  This particular church was no different - they have one of the most extensive stainded glass window collections on the east coast.  See it here. The First Presbyterian Church also has some beautiful artifacts and spires at the top of their steeples that required a special touch. We...

Temple University Performing Arts Center Dome Repair

In the heart of Philadelphia sits an incredible treasure - the Temple Performing Arts Center.   Purchased in 1974 by Temple University the Baptist Temple was designated as historic and a landmark building.  It underwent an extensive remodeling and has since hosted many great performing artists. Superior Scaffold was called in by Temple University to help with the renovation of the two copper domes on top of the center.  Over the years, the copper had oxidized and the wood beneath had fallen into disrepair. It was Superior Scaffold's job to get the crews up there to do the renovation. The first challenge...

Chapel inside of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, Camden, NJ

Here is another unique scaffolding job.  It just goes to show you that when you think you’ve seen it all - think again.  Here is a chapel inside of a hospital, and not just any hospital, mind you.  This is in the heart of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, Camden, New Jersey. And what makes this even cooler is that the altar literally sits directly below the statue of the blessed Mother.  It’s 6 floors beneath the giant statue but it’s very close to being directly beneath her; pretty darn cool if you ask me.  And you remember the Superior blog about saving...

Superior scaffolds St. Mary’s Ukranian Church, Mcadoo, PA

When  St. Mary’s Ukranian Church in Mcadoo, PA needed a scaffolding company to erect scaffold for painters to restore the exterior luster of their beloved church - they turned to Superior Scaffold.  Our experience with historic buildings, churches and structures has made us the tri-state leader in the scaffolding industry. The contractor wanted a stair tower to access the scaffold and a nice sized storage deck.  And to eliminate ascending the scaffolding from the ground each time, Superior constructed a special walkway across the roof. You will see the photos below but I think this Youtube video gives the best visual description. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_a1wYxucO8 At...
