Superior Scaffold – Can’t Touch This!

  At first glance, this mixed bag of tricks seems as fresh as a pair of MC Hammer pants. It looks like they used as many different access disciplines as possible to protect and erect a structure. But further examination proves otherwise. When they decided to erect an apartment complex where the old parking lot used to be they didn't think they would have to work around one lone structure. And part of the deal was that they couldn't touch that building at all. So what do you do? You bust a move and call Superior Scaffold and we come up with a legit...

Let the Pictures do the talking! Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital Expansion/Addition

5 stories of system scaffold. Odd shapes and customized layouts on every elevation. Giant dance floor at the top. One incredible job! With some jobs it’s better just to let the pictures do the talking and this is certainly one of them!

Down by the Riverside

It’s always nice to be a part of a revitalization project, especially one that propels the westward expansion of Center City along the Schuylkill River. Superior Scaffold was called in to provide sidewalk overhead protection for the Locust on the Park luxury loft-style apartments, retail and office space.  This once abandoned publishing plant that was previously home to the Lanston Monotype Company and then the National Publishing Company is being transformed into an artful mix of original architecture and modern finishes that will house 152 apartments. Superior provided 5 canopies around the building. (One large canopy up front 2 small and 2 large...

Construction Today Magazine publishes article by Superior Scaffold

Shawn MacDonald, Superior’s Safety & Training Manager, points out that many companies that rent scaffolding are unknowingly violating OSHA regulations.  He addresses the elephant in the room and offers a tremendous solution to all safety directors in the area. Read the article and learn why you must have a competent person inspect your scaffolding prior to each work shift. It’s an informative and entertaining read.  Let’s just hope that being a published author doesn’t go to his head.  A shout out to Lauren and the people at the GBCA for all of the great work they do! If you would like Competent Person...

Championship Scaffolding & Work Platform at Villanova University Swimming Pool

Back to school and back to winning championships!  It was the Wildcat men’s basketball program that got most of the glory for winning the 2016 NCAA Championship but this time it’s the three-peat BIG EAST champion Wildcat women who are looking for their fourth consecutive swimming and diving championship in 2017.  That’s quite a feat!  Coach Rick Simpson and his team deserve a hand! And Superior Scaffold wanted to do its part to lend a hand.  We were called in to provide access to the cieling of the swimming arena so new mechanicals and HVAC could be installed.  We erected three...

Je suis tombé amoureux de Montréal – Or Just Send Cash! SAIA Annual Convention & Exposition

Or as the French say, coup de foudre, roughly translated to thunderbolt or it unexpectedly and suddenly seduced you – or me in this case.  I fell in love with this city.  There was something about it that I’m sure the locals can verbalize better than I.  Montreal has an old world feel mixed with a modern charm and French accents.  Who could want more?  Did I mention those accents?  Is it just me or were they out of this world? (just listen to the music cuts at the end to see what I mean). Okay, maybe I’m biased about this particular...

500 Walnut St., Suspended Scaffold and Canopy, Ultra-Luxury Housing

There aren’t too many companies that can say they’ve had a hand in constructing one of the most expensive Ulra-Luxury housing buildings in Philadelphia. This property boasts one of the most expensive penthouses that has been sold (even before the building was completed) at almost $18 million dollars. Yes, that’s million. Wow. But I guess you get unprecedented views of the city like the Delaware River stretching up to the Betsy Ross Bridge - to South Jersey - to Independence Mall and more. Superior Scaffold was called to provide access to the exterior of this 26 story luxury building so crews could...
