Aces High – Trash Chute at SugarHouse Casino

When it's time to take the trash out this baby will do it – in spades!Superior Scaffold was lucky enough to be able to go all in at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. As part of their $164 Million addition we doubled down and provided the debris chute and the scaffolding around it to keep it in place.This sleek unit was 5 stories tall with hoppers on each of the floors so the detritus could be moved out and into the trash dumpster at the bottom. Our scaffolding was secured to the exterior of the garage to keep...

North by Northwest – Scaffolding at Park Towne Place, Philadelphia, PA

Well, as we scour the city trying to bring you the greatest and most interesting feats of construction (using scaffolding of course) we find this.  And I must say, just when I think I’ve seen it all something comes along to tickle my fancy, stimulate my brain and restore my faith in creative construction techniques.Today we find ourselves on the roof of one of Center City’s premier apartment complexes. Park Towne Place premier apartment homes in the parkway museum district. Yes, just a stone’s throw from where Rocky ran up the steps at the art museum. I’m feeling rather nostalgic...

Jacob’s Ladder – Superior Scaffold’s material moving hoist system.

Now, we all know that the biblical version of Jacob’s Ladder is the bridge between earth and heaven as dreamt by Jacob and described in the Book of Genesis. The significance of that ladder was obviously greater than our version of Jacobs Ladder. But our ladder, if you will, or hoist at Jacobs Music (in Center City, Philadelphia, PA) moves heavy material from the earth skyward to its position on the façade of this structure and even to the roof of the building.Using a Patriot 1000 material hoist rigged atop of system scaffold at the top of our canopy and...

Shoring for Willow Grove Sears massive remodel

Superior Scaffold is providing the shoring for this massive 3 story renovation of the Sears store at the Willow Grove Park Mall. This enormous remodel is being done to open up the store, change the current layout and split it into two separate businesses.  But in order to do so they must move escalators, elevators and staircases. And because they have to cut through the concrete slabs on all 3 levels they are also having to beef up and add new structural steel, new footers and support columns to carry the weight.  And that's where Superior comes in.  (this is a view...

Scaffolding is our baby – 500 Walnut, Philadelphia, PA

We don’t just broadcast the giant jobs around here. They all have a very important place in our heart, like our children. We’ve designed them, traveled with them, built them, and then put them out into the world where they must stand alone.I thought I’d put this up because we normally show you a canopy or overhead protection system that is at the base of a building protecting pedestrians from the work going on overhead.But this is a little different. It’s a canopy at a new construction site. And it’s not on the sidewalk but in the street. And because...

Emergency Services to the rescue at 1805 Walnut St.

Crews were renovating the Alison Building, in Rittenhouse Square, and discovered a piece of the parapet was falling off.  The building was built in 1924 and is being revamped for 19 super high-end luxury apartments. Superior Scaffold got the call Friday afternoon and had a crew on the scene within hours. The decision was made to install a 40’ long, double-wide canopy (sidewalk overhead protection system) the next day.   The sidewalk shed was completed using our 767 Philly frames, steel and aluminum beams, and 3 foot high debris panels.  Barneys placed their placards on the panels to let customers know they were...
