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...

Rodin College House at U Penn, Suspended Scaffold, Mast Climbers and Canopy

The sister skyscraper to Harnwell and Harrison House is getting a much needed facelift after forty years of weathering the elements. (You can read all about the Harwell renovation job we did here last year on our blog.) This uniquely shaped building at 3901 Locust Walk is a 25-story apartment complex that houses roughly 820 residents and is part of the university’s student housing. Superior Scaffold was called in to give masonry restoration crews total access around the entire structure. We did so by providing ten swing stages or suspended scaffold platforms on three sides of the building, and also by installing one...

3 Story Loading Platform & Debris Chute, Wilmington, DE

We normally talk about building a loading/work platform or a debris chute but not a combo loading platform and debris chute in one.  Well here it is - a combo platform at CSC (Corporate Service Company) in Wilmington, DE. Our customer called Superior Scaffold and asked if we could come up with a solution to load material into the building while at the same time allowing debris to be moved out.  And this is what we came up with. You see, this ain't our first rodeo folks (see below).  But this one is constructed from shoring posts and hi-load frames and not system...

Construction Today Magazine features an article by Superior Scaffold

Superior Scaffold is proud to have an article in the new Construction Today Magazine about our work with Vibration Mitigation at the Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.In a nutshell, the article details how Superior Scaffold was called in to provide access to help dismantle two giant, 16 foot tall, 14th/15th century Chinese Buddhist murals in preparation for the demolition of the building right next door. Click on any of the pics to read the article.These giant murals are just two of thousands of priceless artifacts that are being moved so the vibrations from the heavy equipment next door doesn't...

Jacob’s Ladder – Superior Scaffold’s material moving hoist system.

Now, we all know that the biblical version of Jacob’s Ladder is the bridge between earth and heaven as dreamt by Jacob and described in the Book of Genesis. The significance of that ladder was obviously greater than our version of Jacobs Ladder. But our ladder, if you will, or hoist at Jacobs Music (in Center City, Philadelphia, PA) moves heavy material from the earth skyward to its position on the façade of this structure and even to the roof of the building.Using a Patriot 1000 material hoist rigged atop of system scaffold at the top of our canopy and...

Shoring for Willow Grove Sears massive remodel

Superior Scaffold is providing the shoring for this massive 3 story renovation of the Sears store at the Willow Grove Park Mall. This enormous remodel is being done to open up the store, change the current layout and split it into two separate businesses.  But in order to do so they must move escalators, elevators and staircases. And because they have to cut through the concrete slabs on all 3 levels they are also having to beef up and add new structural steel, new footers and support columns to carry the weight.  And that's where Superior comes in.  (this is a view...

Scaffolding is our baby – 500 Walnut, Philadelphia, PA

We don’t just broadcast the giant jobs around here. They all have a very important place in our heart, like our children. We’ve designed them, traveled with them, built them, and then put them out into the world where they must stand alone.I thought I’d put this up because we normally show you a canopy or overhead protection system that is at the base of a building protecting pedestrians from the work going on overhead.But this is a little different. It’s a canopy at a new construction site. And it’s not on the sidewalk but in the street. And because...

Emergency Services to the rescue at 1805 Walnut St.

Crews were renovating the Alison Building, in Rittenhouse Square, and discovered a piece of the parapet was falling off.  The building was built in 1924 and is being revamped for 19 super high-end luxury apartments. Superior Scaffold got the call Friday afternoon and had a crew on the scene within hours. The decision was made to install a 40’ long, double-wide canopy (sidewalk overhead protection system) the next day.   The sidewalk shed was completed using our 767 Philly frames, steel and aluminum beams, and 3 foot high debris panels.  Barneys placed their placards on the panels to let customers know they were...
