17th & Locust Overhead protection and Suspended Scaffold

Here is a very tall canopy that Superior Scaffold provided for the restoration project at 17th & Locust on the back side of the Radisson Blu Plaza Warwick Hotel.  Now that’s a mouthful… Whew…And not only did we erect the overhead protection but we also provided Joseph Dugan the swing stages necessary to complete the total restoration of the exterior.I love it when we can show just a few shots of our crew assembling the job so you can see just want goes into a system canopy like this one.I will get shots of the canopy traveling all the way...

Step right up. Step right up. You won’t believe your eyes…

This is a unique one. Take a close look at the photo.  What do you see?This classic looking building was built in 1830. Or was it? Wait. The façade of the building, known as the Pennsylvania Building (Pennsylvania Fire Insurance Company), was built in 1830 but the actual building was demolished in 1971 and the façade was preserved as a screen in front of the newer office building.But that’s not all folks. Step right up and tell me what else you notice about this building?  Got it?Look at the address. 508-10 Walnut St., crazy – it takes up two spaces...

All the World’s a Stage – St. James at Washington Square, Philadelphia, PA

All the world’s a stage at the St. James in Washington Square, PA. At one time Superior Scaffold had 8 suspended scaffolds (swing stages) on the exterior of this 45 story high-rise.This good looking apartment complex sits along Walnut St. and W. Washington Square and is the 12th tallest building in Philadelphia.  With it's massive glass windows it has great views of the entire city.Using our Altrex modular staging with BisoMac 210 and PC1 hoists we got crews access to all levels of the exterior for concrete patch work and repainting.If you look carefully, you will see that the first...

Scaffolding the massive front desk at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City

Superior Scaffold was proud to take part in the renovation of the 50 foot long front desk at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.  It was a great opportunity to provide a unique scaffolding platform for a renowned California artist to complete his work.  It's all part of the casinos $13 million revitalization.The artist, who will remain anonymous, was installing a series of delicate glass pieces behind the new front desk and we had to provide enough of a working platform to get the job done.  This job was done in two phases – this is the...

Shoring Peermont Substation, Avalon, New Jersey, Phase 2

This is phase 2 of a really unique electrical substation in Avalon, NJ. You really need to read the original story first to really grasp the “coolness” of this. Click on the pic or here:Phase two for Superior Scaffold entails shoring up the sub-floor or grating so that crews can drive their heavy machinery over it while constructing the structure of this building.  And by heavy machinery I’m thinking scissor lifts and such as they add the structural steel to the foundation. Obviously, this isn’t going to be just an ordinary house that sits near the beach.  In a nutshell, they...

The art of scaffolding at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA)

 What a great looking building this is, smack dab in the middle of downtown. This is the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. It’s a historic Victorian museum and Art school (offering 19th & 20th century American works). I would have loved to enter that place everyday to learn. Incidentally, it’s the first and oldest art museum and school in the United States.I’m going to put a link to some pics from their website to show you just how cool the structure is beneath our scaffolding.  Check out the giant paintbrush just to the right. I love it.Okay, enough about the...

Thinking outside the box: Princeton Firestone Library Phase 3

Yes, we are already on phase 3 of the renovations at the Firestone Library on the Princeton University campus. Crews are replacing the entire parapet around the top of this floor of the library.Each time we do a phase it presents a new set of challenges. This was a unique scaffolding job, in that, we literally had to design and build it from the top down. That was because of the glass windows or façade on the North side of the building, directly over the library.Crews needed access to the entire parapet and that included the portion over the glass...

Aces High – Trash Chute at SugarHouse Casino

When it's time to take the trash out this baby will do it – in spades!Superior Scaffold was lucky enough to be able to go all in at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. As part of their $164 Million addition we doubled down and provided the debris chute and the scaffolding around it to keep it in place.This sleek unit was 5 stories tall with hoppers on each of the floors so the detritus could be moved out and into the trash dumpster at the bottom. Our scaffolding was secured to the exterior of the garage to keep...

North by Northwest – Scaffolding at Park Towne Place, Philadelphia, PA

Well, as we scour the city trying to bring you the greatest and most interesting feats of construction (using scaffolding of course) we find this.  And I must say, just when I think I’ve seen it all something comes along to tickle my fancy, stimulate my brain and restore my faith in creative construction techniques.Today we find ourselves on the roof of one of Center City’s premier apartment complexes. Park Towne Place premier apartment homes in the parkway museum district. Yes, just a stone’s throw from where Rocky ran up the steps at the art museum. I’m feeling rather nostalgic...
