1818 Market – Canopy, Overhead Protection, Variations on a theme

I know. It’s a canopy, an overhead protection system, a sidewalk shed, something that protects pedestrians as work goes on overhead. But you know me, I always look for the uniqueness in everything I report on – and this is no different. Sure, if you are driving past or walking underneath you will just think, “wow, that’s a really clean, well built, thing of beauty.”  That’s what we hope everyone says.This 40-story skyscraper in downtown Philadelphia is undergoing some major renovations including a façade restoration and window enhancements, of which Superior Scaffold was a part.  But I wanted to point...

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.

The Philadelphian Suspended Scaffold & Canopy

This is a giant job at The Philadelphian, a luxury condominium building located (2401 Pennsylvania Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130) just off the Benjamin Franklin Parkway directly across from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Superior Scaffold provided restoration crews, from Joseph Dugan, with swing stages (suspended scaffold) necessary to get them all over the exterior of the building.  They were doing masonry repair, metal cleaning, balcony repair and railing revitalization.Those of you who know me (KT, GB, PM) all know what a jib-jabber I can be but I really think today I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking.Oh...

This office building between Rittenhouse Square and the new Comcast tower at 18th and Market is getting some window work done.Superior Scaffold provided the overhead protection system that runs down 18th and Market Street side of the building.  It’s a beautiful creation of system scaffold, steel and aluminum beams, topped with debris panels.  And it’s all for the protection of the many pedestrians that travel through that area daily.Superior also provided Premier Building Restoration crews with the Altrex swing stages (suspended scaffold) that allowed them to do the window caulking on both sides of the building.The building is getting a...

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...
