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...

Triple the action for Superior Scaffold at the Old Dublin Pike Bridge in Doylestown, PA.

The stone arch bridge was originally constructed back in 1875 and then rehabbed in 1947.  So it was time for a reconditioning - seems that this old bridge still has over 5,000 cars travel over her every day in Doylestown, PA.  Crews needed a way to support the structure and to get into the arches to repair the stones and masonry while keeping the road open above.   This was the challenge for Superior Scaffold.   First order of business was diverting the river through two of the arches so one could be fairly dry while the scaffolding was erected.  Then, once...

Superior Scaffold and the historical Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ

This neat old church at 1064 Penn Ave, in Wyomissing, PA, that began its life in 1909, needed some repairs to the high vaulted plaster ceilings – so they called Superior Scaffold. [caption id="attachment_1428" align="alignnone" width="300"] Photo courtesy of Ed Reneger[/caption] Superior is known for its skill working with historical buildings and the care it takes around one of a kind artifacts and structures.  This was no different.  We had to construct some cool system scaffolding up, over and around pews, alters, and priceless objects at Bausman Memorial United Church of Christ   The ceiling was divided into sections with flying buttresses, so...

Changing ceiling tiles is MMM MMM good at Campbell’s Soup Headquarters.

This is one of those, once in a lifetime, cool jobs that you just have to brag about.  Superior Scaffold was called out to the Campbell’s Soup Worldwide Headquarters in Camden, NJ to rig a special scaffolding in the boardroom. This is the same boardroom where one of  the original Andy Warhol Campbell Soup Can paintings lives. And even cooler was the job.  We had to come up with system to allow crews to change the ceiling tiles over the handmade wood table that resides in the boardroom.  Sounds simple, right?  Not really.  The table is 8 feet wide by 30 feet...

Superior Scaffold uses unique earth anchors to hold canopy in place.

So, not only did we help scaffold the building for the new support steel but we just installed the canopy at the entryway.  In the background, you can see the 5 story steel structure where our scaffolding used to be.  They are making great progress on the new addition at the Chester County Hospital, and we are grateful to be a part of such a unique project.  (See the original blogpost here.) And speaking of unique, this was a very cool and innovative way to tie-down a canopy.  It’s not something you see everyday.   Normally, there are many places to tie-down...

Scaffolding Sculpture

Artist Ben Long’s ‘Scaffolding Sculptures’ are series of three-dimensional constructions made from conventional scaffolding components.  By using these builder’s materials out of their everyday context, Long creates meanings and symbols an audience would not normally expect.  In this exhibit he creates the words Art and Work. The word ‘ART’ embodies the creative thought-process inherent in the conception of a piece as well as the practical skill required to physically make it. Likewise, the word ‘WORK’ describes not only the intellectual endeavor in pursuit of a final idea, but also the effort involved in an artwork’s construction. By separating the word ‘artwork’ into its...

Superior Scaffold at Frick Laboratory, Princeton University, NJ

Superior Scaffold was called out to the Frick Laboratory at Princeton University to build scaffolding for crews to get access to the 3 floors of the structure.  Crews will then install trash chutes so they can demo the entire interior of the building.    Princeton University officials say that the former Frick lab will remain vacant until renovation funds become available. The Frick Lab is named after industrialist and art patron Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919).  The lab, built in 1929, housed the academic chemistry facilities for over 83 years making it one of the oldest functioning labs in the United States. It has been...

Superior Scaffold at the University of Pennsylvania, Market & 34th

University of Pennsylvania (U of P) is caulking and waterproofing the façade of their building at 3400 Walnut, (Market & 34th) Pennsylvania, PA  19104.    Superior Scaffold provided an intricate sidewalk canopy (sidewalk shed), with overhead protection, 2 blocks long that would allow construction work to go on above while keeping the businesses open underneath.    Superior also provided two suspended scaffolds (swings, swing-stage) to allow crews greater access to all areas of the façade. U of P turned to Superior because of the confidence they have for them to handle the safety requirements and guidelines set up by the city, state, and the university.  Superior...

Renovation at Princeton University Firestone Library

The renovation is a long-term project that is being done in multiple phases and will take almost 10 years to finish, during which time the library will remain open, and its collections available during normal hours of operation.    Superior erected system scaffold allowing crews to get access to all areas of this monumental...
