Scaffolding St. Agatha – St. James Church, 38th and Chestnut

Working on St. Agatha - St. James Church at 38th and Chestnut is one of those rare opportunities where we get to help renovate an historic landmark. St. James was the first Catholic Church on the west side of the Schuylkill River, founded 1850. St. Agatha, 3813 Spring Garden Street, was founded shortly thereafter in 1865. In 1976 after St. Agatha suffered a second fire the two churches were incorporated into St. Agatha-St. James.  So what does it take to be able to work on an historic structure like this? It takes skill, patience, customer service, more skill, and the ability to adapt...

Get up and take another step! Scaffolding First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia

First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, built in 1872 (at 21st & Walnut), needed a complete exterior renovation and the good people at Mara were just the ones to git ‘er done. They called Superior Scaffold to help them rock and roll the love all around this beautiful structure. It was complicated but nothing our backline badass builders couldn’t handle. We used system scaffold and decked it out at just about every level. Then we netted it for protection. LIFE IS GOING TO THROW IT AT YOU, PEOPLE. YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES – EITHER STAY ON THE GROUND AND LET THEM WIN OR...

Tommy can you hear me? Shoring parking garage at ACME Markets

How do you help a customer that needs to support the top deck of a parking garage while they repair a cut tension cable and repave? You do what super Superior Scaffold estimator Tommy (can you hear me) Creighton did and that’s erect three system scaffold shoring towers to support the structure. Holy moly, you try saying that sentence three times really fast. The real challenge of this job was making sure that the areas that needed support were shored up so the folks at Structural Maintenance Systems could do their work. Thanks to Alternate Design Solutions for their calculations to make...

Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish – Wahoo’s, Swings, Overhead Protection System & Canopy Extravaganza

I love it when a client takes something that might not really belong at their location and makes it their own. That’s just what the good people at Wahoo’s on Chestnut Street did. Life gave them tilapia and they turned it into tuna. Look at how they added their own decorative touches. Now, this wasn’t a walk in the park for our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, either. Watts Restoration was doing a total revamp of the exterior of building at 3180 Chestnut St. and needed a way to keep the pedestrians and the customers at the outdoor dining area safe while they...

Transport Platform for interior renovation at Rodney Court, Wilmington, DE

Superior Scaffold provided our TP-2500 transport platform to crews at the historic Rodney Court apartment building (now Birchwood at Rodney Court) for a complete interior restoration. This is a pretty cool job for lots of reasons. We had to use system scaffold to reach each level of this six-story building and then deck it in as a sort of landing platform for crews to get their materials in through windows on each floor. To make it just a little more challenging, we mounted the mast for the transport platform directly to the building on one side and in between the scaffold to...

Multiple access units at Parkway Condominium Complex, 2601 Pennsylvania Ave.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced. You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures. When it...

Higher ground, Penn Medicine Canopy, 34th & Convention Center Blvd

We’ve been all over this project and most of our work has seemed to come in and around the giant hole where Penn Tower once stood (and is now the home of the massive Penn Medicine Pavilion). But this bridge column canopy or overhead protection system at 34th and Convention Center Blvd really stood out. First, because it was on higher ground and second because it was a beautiful piece of work. Stretching 135’ long by 8’ wide with a 300 lb. per sq/ft rating this canopy ran parallel to Convention Center Boulevard and beneath the pedestrian walkway and new steel for...
