Adapting to the building’s shape – innovative solutions at The Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia, PA

The angled exterior design of the Rittenhouse Hotel by architect Donald Reiff allows stunning views of Rittenhouse Square and the city below but poses an interesting challenge for crews that need to work on the facade of the building. Traditional wisdom would say hang a work cage and move it ten thousand times or a standard platform across the jutting corners and try your best to reach in to work on the windows.  But that's where traditional wisdom ends and sheer innovative genius begins. The guys at Superior Scaffold wanted something safer and more cost effective.  And sometimes when we come up...

Double Wide, frame vs. system scaffold – when to use

At first glance, what do you see?  A double-wide canopy spanning the entire sidewalk? If you did - you would be correct but there is more to it than meets the eye.  You don't think we would just toss up a double wide sidewalk shed using our famous 767-00 "Philly" frames would you?  Of course not.  What you have to remember is that this a large span we have to cover so the facade resoration can go on overhead.  And there are certain regulations that are mandated by our state as to the amount of weight this canonpy must support.  In...

Emergency Scaffold Services – Canopy and facade restoration

How to erect a canopy – Aramark Tower, Philadelphia

It's not every day that you get to see just how we erect a sidewalk shed (canopy).  We usually concentrate on the finished product and how well the client liked our work.  But today is another story.  You get to see just what it looks like before, during and after we install overhead protection on a job site.  We are going to look at the work done in the middle of one of Center City's busiest intersections at 11th and Market - the Aramark Tower. Crews usually start at night to avoid the massive traffic that will ensue during the daytime.  In this...

Superior Scaffold ramps up for Toyota at the Philly Auto Show

Toyota set up an indoor track complete with traction ramps, water hazards, sand traps and suspension bumps giving the user the ultimate car buying experience. Patrons are invited to ride along inside the new line up of Toyota vehicles to get a real world idea of how they will perform. Toyota contacted Superior Scaffold to build the ramp that would test the climbing and traction control of their vehicles. We jumped at the chance. The ramp is 8’ high by 14’ wide and 53’ long. ...

How to add floors to an existing building – high exposure cantilever scaffold

This is amazing to me.  How do you add 3 floors to an already existing building?  You probably haven’t thought about that before.  I know that I hadn’t but the people at Superior Scaffold have many times.  In downtown areas space is a valuable commodity so sometimes the only place to expand is up. But this leaves a myriad of challenges.  The biggest one being how do we do all of the necessary heavy work outside of the building that needs to be done?  Well, by creating working space outside of the area being built. And in this case at the Parc...
