Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Chichester High School in Boothwyn, PA gets a new temporary press box. That’s right. You heard it right here in the Superior Sentinel. Chichester’s old press box is being replaced. The school that boasts the Eagles football team needed a way to broadcast their home games. The call went out to Superior Scaffold to help them build a temporary structure to get them through the season until a new permanent press box could be built. System scaffold was used because its adaptability with different elevations, especially while sitting directly on top of bleachers. See the pic of crews assembling the scaffolding above. Post...

Shoring Montgomery Mall (North Wales, PA) for an escalator drop

Not only was Superior Scaffold called in to provide shoring while new support columns were added - but then we had to shore up the bar joists and steel beams for 150 feet so crews could roll a 10,000 pound escalator into place on the floor above.  Pretty darn cool!  You can see to the left in this photo where crews cut a hole in the flooring for the new escalator. They were demoing a building and removing an old staircase.  That staircase was being replaced with that escalator. This job was done in phases. First step was adding new support columns so...

Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino cashes in with Superior Scaffold

Photos courtesy of Karl Kalbach. Bally’s Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, turned to Superior Scaffold to get painting crews up to the high end of one of their buildings on the boardwalk. Crews needed to get all the way to the top of the building above world famous Harry's Oyster Bar and Sea Food restaurant to finish painting and refinishing, but their high reach couldn’t get them there. Superior erected a system scaffold around and in between the buildings and over the roof and since crews couldn’t tie in anywhere on the building, diagonal bracing was used throughout to keep everything leaning...

Safety is our number one priority

It's true.  I was going through some recent pics of some posts (say that 10 times) and I noticed that they all had one thing in common. Can you see it? I would hope it was pretty darn obvious. Unfortunately, in this day and age with all of the social media, texts, cell phones, and constant distractions, the bright red frames weren't enough to get people's attention.  We had to design an even brighter attention getter to help people look up.   And unless you were absolutely blasted on Boone's Farm or stumbling from a Ray Rice smash to the head you should...

Positive customer reviews and why we do what we do

Positive customer reviews are the lifeblood of a business like ours. For most of our guys it's a thankless, rock and roll, solve the problem, on to the next job kind of existence.  So when we get an unsolicited customer review like this it makes our day. I want to thank you for your partnership during the recent water treatment plant project. I set a very aggressive deadline of Friday, August 29th, which everyone said could not be achieved. What I saw was nothing short of perfection. Your employees worked seamlessly to execute a critical project in record time. What I saw...

Big and Tall Aluminum Canopy for Torre Men’s Store, Philadelphia, PA

  How fitting is this?  A super tall canopy at Torre Big & Tall Men's store at 1217 S. Broad St, Philadelphia, PA.  Now, I know what you're thinking.  Did we erect this jumbo sized overhead protection system for all of the giant men that enter the store from the street?  Well, yes and no.  There are some very tall customers that shop at Torre's (that boasts the biggest and best independent collection of tall designer fashions in the word) but it's really to protect those clients from the demolition of the building next door. Yes, they are tearing down the 3rd...

Love in an elevator – Mast Climber at Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia, PA

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia are joining forces to provide health care to children and adults in South Philadelphia. They are relocating two existing clinics, a CHOP-owned pediatric primary care practice currently located in South Philadelphia, and the City-owned Health Center, which serves children and adults into one new building. They called Superior Scaffold to install mast climber work platforms inside the elevator shafts to assist the wall construction inside. I know we’ve shown you one mast climbing work platform in an elevator shaft this summer (at Eagles stadium) but this one is a touch taller than...

Superior Scaffold is built Ford tough

Some jobs go off just as planned and then others…well, let’s just say need a little extra attention.  You see, from the outside a job looks one way and then from the inside it turns into an entirely different animal. Pacific Ford was one of those animals.  A simple shoring job to create a large display room and offices overlooking the service center turned out to be more than anyone imagined.  But because we have the best guys in the business – it wasn’t anything we couldn’t handle.  Just like Ford trucks we can go anywhere and do just about anything. Let’s take a look at...
