Positive customer reviews and why we do what we do

Positive customer reviews are the lifeblood of a business like ours. For most of our guys it's a thankless, rock and roll, solve the problem, on to the next job kind of existence.  So when we get an unsolicited customer review like this it makes our day. I want to thank you for your partnership during the recent water treatment plant project. I set a very aggressive deadline of Friday, August 29th, which everyone said could not be achieved. What I saw was nothing short of perfection. Your employees worked seamlessly to execute a critical project in record time. What I saw...

Big and Tall Aluminum Canopy for Torre Men’s Store, Philadelphia, PA

  How fitting is this?  A super tall canopy at Torre Big & Tall Men's store at 1217 S. Broad St, Philadelphia, PA.  Now, I know what you're thinking.  Did we erect this jumbo sized overhead protection system for all of the giant men that enter the store from the street?  Well, yes and no.  There are some very tall customers that shop at Torre's (that boasts the biggest and best independent collection of tall designer fashions in the word) but it's really to protect those clients from the demolition of the building next door. Yes, they are tearing down the 3rd...

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...

Love in an elevator – Mast Climber at Children’s Hospital, Philadelphia, PA

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia are joining forces to provide health care to children and adults in South Philadelphia. They are relocating two existing clinics, a CHOP-owned pediatric primary care practice currently located in South Philadelphia, and the City-owned Health Center, which serves children and adults into one new building. They called Superior Scaffold to install mast climber work platforms inside the elevator shafts to assist the wall construction inside. I know we’ve shown you one mast climbing work platform in an elevator shaft this summer (at Eagles stadium) but this one is a touch taller than...

Superior Scaffold is built Ford tough

Some jobs go off just as planned and then others…well, let’s just say need a little extra attention.  You see, from the outside a job looks one way and then from the inside it turns into an entirely different animal. Pacific Ford was one of those animals.  A simple shoring job to create a large display room and offices overlooking the service center turned out to be more than anyone imagined.  But because we have the best guys in the business – it wasn’t anything we couldn’t handle.  Just like Ford trucks we can go anywhere and do just about anything. Let’s take a look at...

Superior Scaffold at SAIA Annual Convention & Expo, Austin, TX

Put on your sittin' britches - the Superior Scaffold boys travel where it's so dry the catfish are carrying canteens - Austin, TX for the Annual SAIA (Scaffold & Access Industry Association) Convention and Expo. I have a ten gallon mouth about this show because there was lots of cool equipment (some of which might be on your next job) great people to mingle with and awesome BBQ to eat.   Now, don’t sit on your spurs, I’ll get to the details of our visit.  And you can hang your hat on that!  But if you can’t wash off your war paint and...

Penn Presbyterian Medical Center – New 178,000 square foot advanced care pavilion

Penn Medicine began construction on their new 178,000 square foot advanced care pavilion (Powelton Avenue and N. 38 Street) and called swing stage specialist Bob Sarkisian at Superior Scaffold to provide the suspended scaffold necessary to get the facade work done. It’s fun for me to see an illustration and then show some photos of what it looks like along the way. Check these out. Image Courtesy of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center This is an enormous job with many phases. We have had as many as 25 swings on and around the building (including inside the elevator shafts) at any one time. The new pavilion is...

Inside Out at the Kaiserman Jewish Community Center in Wynnewood, PA

I love it when I can detail a unique job and this was a perfect example.  Superior Scaffold was called into the Kaiserman JCC to help shore up the ceiling joists so crews could repair the support brackets up against wall. There were a couple of challenges – the first being that the scissor lift had to get in behind the scaffolding so crews could get to the brackets for the repairs.  Check out the picture and look to the bottom left – you will see the lift parked inside our scaffold. The second challenge was also the water – anytime you work...

SWING, SWING, SWING, at The Sterling House, 18th & JFK (pt. 3)

As Louis Prima once sang, “Swing, swing, swing” – oh wait, close… “Sing, Sing, Sing – (with a swing)” so we just added the W.  Sounds better this way. But that’s just what Superior Scaffold did on the third phase of this project. (See part 1 – and part 2). The Sterling House Apartment Homes is a unique building at the corner of JFK blvd and 18th in downtown Philly. Superior had 2 36’ foot straight platforms on the front and sides of this building so crews could polish the metal on the facade. Very cool. Here you can see crews working directly...
