Philadelphia Inquirer reports Superior Scaffold to erect Canopy at Amtrak’s 30th St. Station

Superior Scaffold will provide 10-foot-high canopies around the gigantic 30th Street Station.  This is no small feat.  (Look at the photos)  In fact, this is Amtrak's 3rd largest station - it's huge.   The renovation will take several years to complete at a cost of $60 milliion.  The scaffolding will be erected to not only protect pedestrians but allow business as usual during a planned restoration of the limestone facade of the 80-year-old neo-classical building.

Scaffolding support for Riddle Memorial Hospital $16.5M emergency department expansion

  Riddle Memorial Hospital has embarked on two-year expansion designed to increase its emergency-room capacity by 60 percent.  The two-phase project is anticipated to cost $16.5 million and will expand the emergency room by 4,000 to 5,000 square feet.  Riddle has 33,000 visits annually to the emergency department.  The hospital, which was built in the 1960's, was made to only accommodate 25,000 to 28,000 visits so this is a much needed expansion.     The restructuring caused the admissions and registration area to be relocated to the east of where it is now, and the main hospital entrance to move west.  So the call...

‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky – Scaffolding the New Dover High School Auditorium

Jimi Hendrix might have been thinking of other things when he wrote those lyrics but if he was around today in the new Dover High School auditorium (Dover, DE) he’d be singing about Superior Scaffold’s ability to get crews up to the ceilings of very tall structures, just like this state-of-the-art hall. And that’s just what we did on this very cool job.  Crews needed a way to get to very top of the new auditorium so Superior devised a system scaffold platform that was able to span the entire length and width of the space from the stage across the...
