Rowan University, 5 story skylight scaffold and work deck

This is one of those jobs where I think I’ll let the photos do the talking. I will say, that when I went to take pictures, the building superintendent for Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, told me that our guys where extremely accommodating and that he was blown away at how they were able to build a five story scaffold in and around all of the obstacles and still allow students and faculty to get to their locations. [ngg src="galleries" ids="66" display="basic_thumbnail" thumbnail_width="300" thumbnail_height="300" thumbnail_crop="0" images_per_page="32"] I think his comment about sums it up. Thanks to Rowan University and W.J. Gross, Inc. for...

Reading Terminal Market (East Side) An intricate maze of scaffold

This is one of those jobs that blows my mind. It’s not huge, but it took a lot of ingenuity to get it done.  Premier Building Restoration is renovating the entire exterior of the Reading Terminal Market and this side has been challenging, to say the least.  We won the prestigious GBCA Scaffold Project of the Year award for our work a little to the left of this job.  You can read all about it here.  In that job, we had to create a suspended scaffold rig that sat on the parking garage next door.  On this job, we had to erect...

Scaffolding a legend. Lucy the elephant, Margate NJ

You can’t miss her. They say you can see her from eight miles away. She’s big, bold, beautiful and a survivor!  Lucy the Elephant, the six-story tall piece of zoomorphic architecture located in Margate, NJ, is a national landmark constructed of wood and tin sheeting featuring several rooms accessed through staircases in her legs. She was built in 1881 by James V. Lafferty to promote real estate sales and attract tourists to Margate and the Jersey Shore. And boy has she delivered. As the world’s oldest surviving example of zoomorphic architecture, she is getting a major facelift. Lucy the Elephant is having...

Scaffolding Drexel University Main Building – The “Great Court”!

This building is a fantastic example of old world craftsmanship. Completed in 1891 it features some the coolest artwork on the 35 foot tall archway entrance to the main building on Chestnut Street – known as the “Great Portal”.  Just look up and you’ll see 12 relief medallion portraits of leaders in their various fields, from Galileo to Newton, forever emblazoned on the building’s Italian Renaissance stucco representing the wide of array of disciplines taught at the university.  Now, with that said, we are doing work on the inside of the main Drexel University building on the Great Court that still...

Transport Platform at Broad and Walnut, University of the Arts

This is one of those serendipitous situations where everything just falls into place. Our estimator, Tony P, was talking to C. Erickson & Sons about a job and they asked if we had an elevator, like a Buck Hoist, for their project at Broad and Walnut. They needed a way to get men and material in and out without using the interior elevators. “Well, actually we have something better,” said Superior’s Tony P. “We’ve got a TP-2500 transport platform that will let you bring personnel and material up and down without the need of a professional operator. It’s perfect for this...

Superior Scaffold tackles difficult Christiana Hospital Expansion in Newark, DE

Anyone who has been through an injury or watched a loved one struggle through a disease knows the incredible patience, love and support everyone must have. And this is especially true when trying to diagnose and treat someone. It takes patience as doctors experiment with treatments they have used in the past and patients see how their bodies react to those medications or modalities. Hospitals are an interesting mix of emotions for me. You see I’ve spent a fair amount of time in them. On one hand you have the very western medicine approach to saving, preserving, longing a life or...

Scaffolding Firestone Library Lobby, Princeton University, NJ

We have been all over the exterior of the Firestone Library, on the Princeton campus, doing renovations so this time I thought I’d take you inside. Just like our work on the outside, Superior Scaffold was brought in by GC, Massimino Building Corp. to give access to the entire ceiling area at the entrance of the library. Crews needed to demo the old ceiling to replace and upgrade ductwork directly above the entryway and lobby. The biggest challenge was that the ceiling encompassed the entire entrance/exit of the library and it had to remain open for students the entire time work was being...

Train kept a’ rollin’ all night long – Amtrak Hamilton Station rocks a new platform

Superior Scaffold was called out to build an 1100 foot long temporary train platform at the Amtrak Hamilton Station in Trenton, NJ. Not only did crews have to work around the trains speeding past them at 85mph every 15 minutes but they had to work at night (in the dark) over a very busy weekend. (4,700 passengers per day) Imagine just getting your rhythm working when the whistle blows and you have to stop everything and wait for a passing train – every fifteen minutes. Ouch. But look at the work our crews did!  It integrates seamlessly into the existing platform. Had...
