Superior Scaffold in ALH Magazine’s Top Mast Climber & Hoist Issue

ALH Magazine compiled their annual list of top mast climber companies in the US and once again Superior Scaffold made the cut! ALH Magazine also featured a quote from estimator extraordinaire, Tony P, about the current and future state of the market.  He says, "MCWPs offer customers flexibility, which in turn makes the machines suitable for a range of applications. Everyone is looking for a new cost-effective access solution and mast climbers and transport platforms fit the bill as an alternative to traditional scaffold,” Pini says.  “And of course, if it can save a little money, they’ll love it even more. ...

Bridging the Future

These two pedestrian bridges span Convention Avenue and connect the brand new patient Pavilion to the existing Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine – permanently linking two of the most advanced medical facilities on the campus of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. They will allow patients and doctors to cross easily between the two. We had a huge hand in dismantling the old building where the Pavilion now sits. (read about it here)  We also worked with Penn Medicine several times on the new building construction (read here) so it was only fitting that when CM, LF Driscoll, Balfour Beatty JV,...

Power Scaffold for a power couple – The Powel House

When you have visitors like Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and George & Martha Washington at your house – it’s important to keep up appearances.  And that’s exactly what the Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks is doing.  The entire facade from woodwork, masonry, roofing and windows is being renovated to make this luxurious mid Georgian 18th century mansion look its best. Superior Scaffold has a reputation for being the go to company for historic structures in the tri-state area.  Our crews are highly trained and take the best precautions to leave the site exactly as we found it.  The Powel...

Reading Terminal Swing Solutions

When Premier Building Restoration needed access the to the side of the Reading Terminal Market building for restoration, they realized they had a big challenge on their hands.  There wasn’t much room and the lower roofs didn’t have the structural steel to support a big scaffold, or any scaffold for that matter. To top it off, the dome-like curved roof and jutting cornice wouldn’t allow traditional roof rigging. So how could they get their crew to the facade of the Reading Terminal Market to restore windows, masonry, pointing, caulking, you name it? They called Superior Scaffold. And as Bob, “King of Swing”, Sarkisian was...

Scaffold Artists at Bryn Mawr College

Years of designing, imagining and building has literally created a concrete playground of unlimited potential - and it’s taken the minds of our scaffold erectors to see it. Where stands architectural grandeur to the public eye – lies a concrete jungle to the guerrillas of the steel and stone.  Super heroes and artists do in fact inhabit the earth – maybe not in the forms you are used to seeing but in the sheer ability to see unique challenges and opportunities to scale buildings everyday. Staring through the stone arches at a maze of metal and brawn climbing the rock, once inhabiting...
