It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

Superior brings the Swings and Overhead Protection to 401 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA.The $70 Million dollar renovation at 401 North Broad continues. This time we provided 1100 lineal feet of canopy (overhead protection) all the way around the building and suspended scaffold everywhere to assist in the façade restoration.  We were here on another job - you can read all about it on our blog. Our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, has swing stages all around the exterior of this gigantic building.Let’s look at the suspended scaffold first. It’s pretty cool to see the different sized platforms on just...

Emergency Canopy & Scaffolding, 1503 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA

Superior Scaffold's emergency service team was called late Thursday afternoon.We had a crew on the job within 2 hours and a complete overhead protection system in place within 24 hours!Clemens Construction was demoing the building next door and when L&I (Licenses and Inspections) went out to examine they spotted a damaged parapet on the building next door.The canopy went up immediately to protect pedestrians and traffic below. The four story scaffolding went up 2 days later. Inspectors were not in any hurry to get to the façade so they gave us a few extra days to erect the scaffold.One of...

Look closely – Park Towne Place Apartment Homes, PA

In a world where even the smallest details get blow up on the interwebs it seems harder and harder to get someone’s attention or interest. But this was one of those cool jobs that seemed much less attention-getting from the outset but further digging proved just how creative our designers and crew had to be.What do you see when you look the picture of the debris chute sticking out from the side of the building? A plain debris chute?  Look again.It’s a 200 foot high debris chute with access on ALL 20 floors! And in order to have a hopper...

Shine on: Shoring at Bob’s Discount Furniture

This is a great opportunity to show you before and after shots.This is the new construction for Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Deptford Township, NJ. I’m not exactly sure if they took over a building that was designed for someone or something else but Bob’s decided, heck, they needed to open up the front and sides of this storefront to let light shine on through.Well, as you can see, they needed a way to support the building while they cut the giant openings out of the bricks (façade) for the new glass and headers.Superior Scaffold was called in to design...

Scaffold Bridge for Disguised Substation in Avalon, NJ

Now, what do I mean by disguised? Check this out.  This a rendering of what the new Peerman electrical substation in Avalon, NJ will look like.How cool is that? A house!!! Not some giant, nasty looking, electrical, transformer filled, barbed wire nightmare. No. This is a working substation/house with a balcony, windows, a garage, landscaping and more. This might be common practice but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. And I dig it, baby.So that leads us to just what is Superior Scaffold doing on this project? Well, take a look at the job site. This is a far...

Cantilever Scaffold on 28 Floor, Philadelphia, PA

This is an update to our earlier cantilever post at 3601 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA (many more photos and a video tour).If you recall, Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the decorative steel structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street.But how could we get them and their equipment out far enough to work safely on this structure at the top of the building?A cantilever scaffold from the floor below.  For those of you not familiar with a cantilever system it's basically a way to use leverage to...

Saint Mark’s Church, Philadelphia, Renovations & Scaffolding

Saint Mark's Church, at 1625 Locust St., is undergoing some renovations and called Superior for the scaffold support and access it needed. The church was founded in 1847 and actually built between 1848 and 1849 and as an historic building needed the utmost care when completing said renovations. Superior Scaffold has a long history of exemplary work on historic buildings and structures in the tri-state area so they were the logical choice. These upgrades were being done in phases and Superior needed a way to get the many disciplines (roofers, masonry crews, windows, painters, and the like) to their destinations. An elaborate...

Stairway to Heaven (Hi-Load tower and Material Hoist)

Crews install new hand-cut, Golden Jerusalem Limestone stairs at the Rodeph Shalom synagogue. The challenge was how to get the 25 treads, at 800 pounds each and 8 feet long, from their shipping crates set onto the staircase inside the building. The solution, from Superior Scaffold, came in the form of two high-load scaffold towers with an 18’ long steel beam running in between them, then incorporating a Hi Tech Patriot 1000 cable hoist to do the lifting. The hoist was able to travel along the steel beam to pick up the heavy stairs and then move them over to the particular position...
