Dancing & Scaffolding on Plymouth-Whitemarsh Swimming pool

Dancing on the swimming pool?  What?  Only if you have a retractable hardwood and steel pool cover like back in the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rha-6qG4OQ And unless you are Jesus, you are going to get wet.So what, pray tell, do we mean by this statement?  Well, have a look.Our scaffold geniuses, led by Nick Lazer, erected this massive rectangle of scaffold inside the giant Plymouth-Whitemarsh pool so work crews could tear down the old ceiling and mechanicals.Our crew delicately worked with the slope of the pool, from shallow to deep end, to provide an amazingly stable “Dance Floor” or work platform for the crew...

Shoring and scaffolding Dodge Hall, Princeton University

When the good folks at Princeton University decided to add a new elevator to Dodge Hall, and had to remove an entire interior support wall to install it, they called Superior Scaffold to shore up the entire inside of the building. Dodge is one part of Murray-Dodge Hall and was constructed in 1900. The two buildings are joined by a cloister. Not a term you hear much anymore - cloister. And for those who don’t know, a cloister is a covered walk, open gallery, or open arcade running along the walls of buildings and forming a quadrangle or garth. So...

Emergency Scaffolding – Why you need Overhead Protection!

I wanted to show this job because it’s very important to see why we erect overhead protection systems.Our emergency services team was called out to install this canopy around the entire perimeter of the building. Engineers and inspectors had seen that the façade was actually pulling away from the structure and wanted this sidewalk shed put into place while they booked crews for the repair work.It’s a good thing they called us. Because a few days after we installed it, there was a storm with pretty high winds and it actually blew sections of the façade off of the building...

Scaffolding for 14th/15th Century Buddhist Murals at University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology – vibration mitigation

It’s not often that we get a call for scaffolding one project right next to another but that’s just the case here.  We are currently providing scaffolding and shoring all over the demolition of Penn Tower for the new Patient Pavilion at the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.   It's a massive job that we will be blogging about soon. But the unique thing about this job isn’t just that it’s located directly behind Penn Tower at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology but it’s that we were called in to provide scaffolding services for restoration crews to dismantle...

Birds of a Feather. Scaffolding around nesting Peregrine Falcons

This is certainly a first for us in our 65 year history. We’ve erected scaffold just about everywhere and to all kinds of timetables. But we’ve never had to build scaffolding around the schedule of mating peregrine falcons.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="590"] Photo courtesy of Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC). The nest in Manayunk, PA looks very similar to this one.[/caption]It seems that the steeple of the Church of St. John the Baptist in Manayunk is the nesting place for a pair of peregrine falcons and also a protected sanctuary designated by the Pennsylvania Game Commission Bureau of Wildlife Management (say...

An article by Superior Scaffold is featured in Construction Today Magazine!

It's official.  Someone's ego is sufficiently inflated.  It seems that our very own marketing director has been moonlighting for the GBCA (General Building Contractors Association).  The latest issue features an article written by him - no pen name, no alias, no nom de plume to hide his identity just 3 big pages of well written prose and nifty photos crafted around the concept of "Like a Thief in the Night."The article details just how a scaffolding company (Superior Scaffold) goes about working on historic structures, erecting thousands of pounds of aluminum and steel without damaging the existing facade or outlying...

17th & Locust Overhead protection and Suspended Scaffold

Here is a very tall canopy that Superior Scaffold provided for the restoration project at 17th & Locust on the back side of the Radisson Blu Plaza Warwick Hotel.  Now that’s a mouthful… Whew…And not only did we erect the overhead protection but we also provided Joseph Dugan the swing stages necessary to complete the total restoration of the exterior.I love it when we can show just a few shots of our crew assembling the job so you can see just want goes into a system canopy like this one.I will get shots of the canopy traveling all the way...

Step right up. Step right up. You won’t believe your eyes…

This is a unique one. Take a close look at the photo.  What do you see?This classic looking building was built in 1830. Or was it? Wait. The façade of the building, known as the Pennsylvania Building (Pennsylvania Fire Insurance Company), was built in 1830 but the actual building was demolished in 1971 and the façade was preserved as a screen in front of the newer office building.But that’s not all folks. Step right up and tell me what else you notice about this building?  Got it?Look at the address. 508-10 Walnut St., crazy – it takes up two spaces...

All the World’s a Stage – St. James at Washington Square, Philadelphia, PA

All the world’s a stage at the St. James in Washington Square, PA. At one time Superior Scaffold had 8 suspended scaffolds (swing stages) on the exterior of this 45 story high-rise.This good looking apartment complex sits along Walnut St. and W. Washington Square and is the 12th tallest building in Philadelphia.  With it's massive glass windows it has great views of the entire city.Using our Altrex modular staging with BisoMac 210 and PC1 hoists we got crews access to all levels of the exterior for concrete patch work and repainting.If you look carefully, you will see that the first...
