Transport Platform at Broad and Walnut, University of the Arts

This is one of those serendipitous situations where everything just falls into place. Our estimator, Tony P, was talking to C. Erickson & Sons about a job and they asked if we had an elevator, like a Buck Hoist, for their project at Broad and Walnut. They needed a way to get men and material in and out without using the interior elevators. “Well, actually we have something better,” said Superior’s Tony P. “We’ve got a TP-2500 transport platform that will let you bring personnel and material up and down without the need of a professional operator. It’s perfect for this...

Superior Scaffold tackles difficult Christiana Hospital Expansion in Newark, DE

Anyone who has been through an injury or watched a loved one struggle through a disease knows the incredible patience, love and support everyone must have. And this is especially true when trying to diagnose and treat someone. It takes patience as doctors experiment with treatments they have used in the past and patients see how their bodies react to those medications or modalities. Hospitals are an interesting mix of emotions for me. You see I’ve spent a fair amount of time in them. On one hand you have the very western medicine approach to saving, preserving, longing a life or...

Scaffolding Firestone Library Lobby, Princeton University, NJ

We have been all over the exterior of the Firestone Library, on the Princeton campus, doing renovations so this time I thought I’d take you inside. Just like our work on the outside, Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Massimino Building Corp. to give access to the entire ceiling area at the entrance of the library. Crews needed to demo the old ceiling to replace and upgrade ductwork directly above the entryway and lobby. The biggest challenge was that the ceiling encompassed the entire entrance/exit of the library and it had to remain open for students the entire time work was being...

Unique Scaffold Applications, SEPTA Cantilever, Temple Rock Wall

Now each of these could be its very own post but I thought I’d combine them into one article of cool scaffold jobs. The idea is to show two interesting applications for scaffolding that you might not have considered. Let’s start with this cantilever work deck at the newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center (originally the Margaret-Orthodox-Arrott station and formerly named Margaret-Orthodox station). Try saying that five times really fast. It is an elevated railway station on SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line, located above the intersection of Frankford and Oxford Avenues, in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As you can see from the pics we had to erect scaffold inside a decorative steel tower that would allow...

Superior starts work at Bryn Mawr Hospital, Bryn Mawr, PA

Superior Scaffold has assisted with this type of surgical maneuver in and around elevator shafts many times.  This time, it just so happens to be at the Bryn Mawr Hospital  where iron workers need to install and weld new structural steel as part of the new addition to the hospital. Some of these pics show what's going on in the 4th floor elevator shafts where crews cut holes into the shaft walls to install aluminum joists that would span the opening.  Then they had to deck in over the joists to make safe platforms so crews could complete their work. ...

The Renovation of Strawbridge & Clothier Building, Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold was called in to assist with the renovations of the historic Strawbridge & Clothier building in downtown Philadelphia.  The 100 year-old building was once the worlds largest dry goods building.  Over the years it has sat in disrepair until they decided to bring it back to it’s former glory.  They new center will be home for 100 businesses as 1000 residential units.  They are doing a superb job of keeping the old style while giving the new structure nice upgrades. The bank of 20 elevators, yes, I said 20 elevators, wow, are a glorious site to see, however, only...
