Scaffolding support for Riddle Memorial Hospital $16.5M emergency department expansion

  Riddle Memorial Hospital has embarked on two-year expansion designed to increase its emergency-room capacity by 60 percent.  The two-phase project is anticipated to cost $16.5 million and will expand the emergency room by 4,000 to 5,000 square feet.  Riddle has 33,000 visits annually to the emergency department.  The hospital, which was built in the 1960's, was made to only accommodate 25,000 to 28,000 visits so this is a much needed expansion.     The restructuring caused the admissions and registration area to be relocated to the east of where it is now, and the main hospital entrance to move west.  So the call...

‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky – Scaffolding the New Dover High School Auditorium

Jimi Hendrix might have been thinking of other things when he wrote those lyrics but if he was around today in the new Dover High School auditorium (Dover, DE) he’d be singing about Superior Scaffold’s ability to get crews up to the ceilings of very tall structures, just like this state-of-the-art hall. And that’s just what we did on this very cool job.  Crews needed a way to get to very top of the new auditorium so Superior devised a system scaffold platform that was able to span the entire length and width of the space from the stage across the...

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...

Nothing’s easy – The Road from Israel to South St. Philly for the famous LOD Mosaic

On January 26th, Superior Scaffold was proud to help bring to the East Coast one of the most incredible Roman Mosaics ever unearthed.  The challenge to get them inside the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology was something of an engineering marvel taking scaffolding teams, crane operators, art curators, engineers, and scores of people. But first…      A real-life “Cover up”. In 1996, workmen constructing a new highway in Lod, Israel (near modern-day Tel Aviv), made a shocking discovery: a 1,700 year old Roman mosaic under the surface of the road. At that time, the Israel Antiquities Authority conducted a rescue...
