Scaffolding the new pedestrian bridge at the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)

As part of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia expansion project a very cool looking pedestrian bridge was built to allow easy access from the main hospital to the new Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care.  Crews needed to get to the exterior of the bridge at the corner of Civic Center Blvd and E. Service Drive in downtown Philly.  You have to admit that this is one great looking building. You can see from this shot what a unique pedestrian bridge this is and also where crews needed to be to to finish work. Superior Scaffold came in and erected a system...

Overhead protection for an icon at 6th and Walnut, downtown Philly

Now, if you’ve ever owned a white car you know what a royal pain it is to keep clean in the winter. That white paint shows every piece of dust, dirt, and grime that you pick up driving around. So, imagine if you are a white building, built in 1913, 7 to 8 stories tall, smack dab in the middle of hustling, bustling Philadelphia. There are cars, buses, trucks, trains and pedestrians all kicking up dust around your base. And when the wind and rain kick up all of that debris floats upwards and sticks right to your sides. And just...

St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children – Dual purpose scaffold bridge and canopy

When St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia needed to construct a pedestrian bridge from their new building to their existing parking garage – they called Superior Scaffold. We erected a scaffold bridge that had to serve two purposes, one, to get crews beneath the new pedestrian bridge so they could finish construction – without stopping traffic below, and two, to get pedestrians safely across the street from the parking garage to the main hospital. This was the main entrance so it had to remain open at all times. We came in at night and diverted traffic while we erected the scaffolding....

Passariellos Pizzaria Italian Eatery – Update in Moorestown, NJ

I promised to give you guys an update to the post we did a few months back. This is actually a temporary kitchen built on top of a giant platform that we erected out back of the Passariello's restaurant. You can see the original post here: It's not often that Superior Scaffold gets to construct a 16' X 50' platform that ties into the back of the restaurant - and then actually becomes their kitchen while the real one gets an update.  But that's exactly what happened here. Using system scaffold, shoring heads, aluminum beams, and plywood we built another platform that would hold...

Shoring & Scaffolding at Forever 21

An appropriate title for this post would be "Shoring Exposed" - because that's exactly what we are going to do here.  It's not often that we get to show a complicated shoring job because they are usually buried deep in some dark nasty place but this one had just enough light to show the details. http://youtu.be/joLUcTWduUM There were 2 phases of this job - the shoring and the scaffolding.  Let's start with the shoring first. Forever 21 is building out their new location on Chestnut street and decided to enlarge the entranceway and windows on the first few levels.  Look at how their...

Superior is on the cover of Scaffold & Access Magazine!

Lindsay Minard and the people over at the SAIA (Scaffold & Access Industry Association) did a great job featuring Superior Scaffold on the cover of their latest issue.

Iconic PNB letters come down in Philadelphia via helicopter

Sunday was a big day in downtown Philadelphia as the skyline was forever changed.  The giant PNB letters that adorned the top of the majestic, 28 story, Philadelphia National Bank building for almost a half a century were brought down via helicopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzqgEjetnj8 This isn't the first time crews tried to get the 16' tall, 3000 lb letters down.  They attempted it back in August but were only able to remove 3 letters in a four hour span.  This time they removed all of the remaining 9 letters in just around 45 minutes.  The helicopter landed the letters onto waiting trucks just...

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Chichester High School in Boothwyn, PA gets a new temporary press box. That’s right. You heard it right here in the Superior Sentinel. Chichester’s old press box is being replaced. The school that boasts the Eagles football team needed a way to broadcast their home games. The call went out to Superior Scaffold to help them build a temporary structure to get them through the season until a new permanent press box could be built. System scaffold was used because its adaptability with different elevations, especially while sitting directly on top of bleachers. See the pic of crews assembling the scaffolding above. Post...

Shoring Montgomery Mall (North Wales, PA) for an escalator drop

Not only was Superior Scaffold called in to provide shoring while new support columns were added - but then we had to shore up the bar joists and steel beams for 150 feet so crews could roll a 10,000 pound escalator into place on the floor above.  Pretty darn cool!  You can see to the left in this photo where crews cut a hole in the flooring for the new escalator. They were demoing a building and removing an old staircase.  That staircase was being replaced with that escalator. This job was done in phases. First step was adding new support columns so...
