Superior scaffolds St. Mary’s Ukranian Church, Mcadoo, PA

When  St. Mary’s Ukranian Church in Mcadoo, PA needed a scaffolding company to erect scaffold for painters to restore the exterior luster of their beloved church - they turned to Superior Scaffold.  Our experience with historic buildings, churches and structures has made us the tri-state leader in the scaffolding industry. The contractor wanted a stair tower to access the scaffold and a nice sized storage deck.  And to eliminate ascending the scaffolding from the ground each time, Superior constructed a special walkway across the roof. You will see the photos below but I think this Youtube video gives the best visual description. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_a1wYxucO8 At...

Superior Scaffold uses unique earth anchors to hold canopy in place.

So, not only did we help scaffold the building for the new support steel but we just installed the canopy at the entryway.  In the background, you can see the 5 story steel structure where our scaffolding used to be.  They are making great progress on the new addition at the Chester County Hospital, and we are grateful to be a part of such a unique project.  (See the original blogpost here.) And speaking of unique, this was a very cool and innovative way to tie-down a canopy.  It’s not something you see everyday.   Normally, there are many places to tie-down...

Superior Scaffold adapts scaffold for shoring at CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia)

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the oldest and top ranked children’s hospital in the United States, called Superior Scaffold to first come out and scaffold in a stairwell for removal of lights and mechanicals in a research center building on their new campus. The hospital, located next to the University of Pennsylvania, then called Superior to return to the stairwell to see if they could adapt scaffolding, already in place, to provide shoring so a portion of the 8” concrete ceiling slab could be cut out and removed.  Estimator and scaffolding expert, Pat McAndrew, took one look at the job and said, “no...

Superior Scaffold at Frick Laboratory, Princeton University, NJ

Superior Scaffold was called out to the Frick Laboratory at Princeton University to build scaffolding for crews to get access to the 3 floors of the structure.  Crews will then install trash chutes so they can demo the entire interior of the building.    Princeton University officials say that the former Frick lab will remain vacant until renovation funds become available. The Frick Lab is named after industrialist and art patron Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919).  The lab, built in 1929, housed the academic chemistry facilities for over 83 years making it one of the oldest functioning labs in the United States.

Superior Scaffold at the University of Pennsylvania, Market & 34th

University of Pennsylvania (U of P) is caulking and waterproofing the façade of their building at 3400 Walnut, (Market & 34th) Pennsylvania, PA  19104.    Superior Scaffold provided an intricate sidewalk canopy (sidewalk shed), with overhead protection, 2 blocks long that would allow construction work to go on above while keeping the businesses open underneath.    Superior also provided two suspended scaffolds (swings, swing-stage) to allow crews greater access to all areas of the façade. U of P turned to Superior because of the confidence they have for them to handle the safety requirements and guidelines set up by the city, state, and the university.  Superior...

Superior’s emergency scaffold services at Cooper Medical School, Camden, NJ

Superior was called out to scaffold the auditorium in the new Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, in Camden, NJ so lights could be repaired and installed. The challenge here was that all of the auditorium seats had been placed into their permanent locations prior to fixing the lighting issues so Superior designed rolling scaffold to access and repair the malfunctioning lights - and to work around the seating.     "Superior Scaffold and our emergency services team quickly assessed the problem and quickly came up with a mighty fine solution,” said estimator, Pat McAndrew. Rowan University and Cooper University Hospital have embarked on a unique...

How to adapt existing system scaffold (Thomas Jefferson University Hospital)

Even the best laid plans get interrupted from time to time.  So was the case at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. The Alumni Hall building on the Jefferson University Hospital campus in Center City has been undergoing some changes to the HVAC system. Superior Scaffold was called out to install scaffolding on the 6th floor rooftop spanning the entire 42 foot long section of roof all the way up the the 9th floor so workers could get up to make piping tie-ins and add insulation. The scaffolding was in place and functioning well when one of the contractors determined that he...
