Scaffold Artists at Bryn Mawr College

Years of designing, imagining and building has literally created a concrete playground of unlimited potential - and it’s taken the minds of our scaffold erectors to see it. Where stands architectural grandeur to the public eye – lies a concrete jungle to the guerrillas of the steel and stone.  Super heroes and artists do in fact inhabit the earth – maybe not in the forms you are used to seeing but in the sheer ability to see unique challenges and opportunities to scale buildings everyday. Staring through the stone arches at a maze of metal and brawn climbing the rock, once inhabiting...

Gonna’ Carry That Weight – Shoring Pennovation Works – Lab

Just the word Pennovation is inspiring. Maybe that’s why our crew took something as utilitarian as shoring and made it exceptional. Truthfully, they amaze me all the time. They might want to rent space at the new Lab. I’ll ask the boss. It might just be the place to be.  Let’s invent a new scaffolding system, shall we! You see, this is the home of future innovations that could shape the next decade. “The 23-acre property adjacent to Penn's campus (3401 Grays Ferry Ave) accommodates state-of-the-art facilities, researchers, entrepreneurs, and industry partners solving real world problems and translating inventiveness into viable...

Swarthmore College, Scaffolding Maxine Frank Singer Hall

This job started before the COVID-19 pandemic and was put on hold, like most construction in Pennsylvania. And when we came back to work – it was a NEW WORLD out there. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt and adopt a new way of doing business.   New regulations to prevent the spread of the virus on construction sites are now the norm. So much so, that when the Governor gave the go ahead for construction again we were called to install a second stair tower on the opposite end of this giant scaffold to follow the state’s new guidelines for...

Market Street Men of Steel – Cantilever Scaffold

The new owners of 1101 Market St. wanted to make some changes to the entryway and needed to give crews access to a hard to reach area. This section is literally cut into the entrance to the Aramark Tower (now the Jefferson Center) four stories up. Superior Scaffold was called in by GC, Clemens Construction, to create a cantilever scaffold where the base would sit inside the lobby of the building but would allow crews to work out under the section extruding from the building. Our cantilevered work deck had to support everyone from iron workers putting in the new steel,...

Scaffolding & Shoring – Working at the Car Wash

Everyone knows that I like to bring the cool jobs to light no matter how large or small they might be, and this one certainly fits. It’s pretty amazing to think that this car wash works around the clock 365 days a year. I had no idea that this rental car company (at Philadelphia International Airport) washed so many cars in a month.  It's non stop!  I guess it makes sense with cars constantly being rented and turned back in. If something were to happen to the building it would be nearly impossible to shut it down for repairs. Well, that’s exactly...

Scaffolding Philadelphia Museum of Art – Ceiling from the Zhihua Temple

It’s not fancy but this 15’ high, frame scaffold, rolling tower with a stair tower access instead of the usual hook on ladder had to be erected with the utmost care. Our scaffold was erected to help get Chinese researchers and their equipment up to the top of this 500-year-old, hand carved ceiling that was originally installed over a Buddhist altar from the Ming dynasty. The crew is using special equipment to map out the entire structure, inch by inch. Once completed, they will take their photos, data, maps, and bring them back to China where they can analyze the construction and...
