Shoring Rental Division – Superior Scaffold

And for our final rental division - Shoring. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="537"] Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart[/caption] In simple terms, shoring is the act of propping up with shores.  Shoring is a general term used in construction to describe the process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed.

Shoring up Norristown, PA parking garage – concrete repair

Check out this cool shoring job at the Norristown, PA Main street parking garage in Montgomery County. The concrete beams were deteriorating and needed repair.  Superior Scaffold was called in to shore up 5 floors of the garage so crews could remove and replace the bad sections of concrete.  We shored up the supporting joists with our 2' X 5' Hi Load shoring frames so crews could work on the main cement beams.   The challenge here was that the parking garage only had a clearance of 6 feet so our normal deliver trucks wouldn't fit.   Crews had to unload the Hi-load...

Mast Climber Rental Division – Superior Scaffold, Philadelphia, PA

In the previous post we talked about our Suspended Scaffold Rental Division – and today we are going to look at our Mast Climber Rental Division – which is also a part of our Powered Access Division (along with Suspended Scaffolds). Mast climbing work platforms (MCWP) or Mast Climbers are particularly useful when access to a long span is needed so workers can quickly and easily move across the entire width of the wall or surface, at varying heights. [caption id="false" align="alignnone" width="609"] Marquis de Lafayette, Cape May, NJ[/caption] These powered access platforms are popular with masonry contractors because they provide a safe,...

Superior Scaffold Suspended / Swing Rental Division

In the last post we talked about our Scaffold Rental Division - but today we are going to look at our Suspended Scaffold or swing department – which is a part of our Powered Access Division. Suspended scaffolds or swing stages are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high-rise buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other large structures. Suspended scaffold is ideal for projects where traditional scaffolding is not practical or cost effective.  We carry the Altrex Modular Suspended Platform System that is super flexible and allows for access to the...

Toyota, Superior Scaffold, the Philly auto show and Vermont? An update.

I wanted to follow up on a post we did last month about the ramp we built for Toyota at the Philly Auto Show.  I didn't have the photos at the time but now I do and boy are you in luck!   These picks are after the skeleton was erected and just as the dirt was bing poured. It's not everyday that you get to see the behind the scenes workings of an auto show, especially one where they constructed a ramp and obstacle course to test their vehicles. The previous blog can be seen here (on how the ramp was constructed) Let...

Adapting to the building’s shape – innovative solutions at The Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia, PA

The angled exterior design of the Rittenhouse Hotel by architect Donald Reiff allows stunning views of Rittenhouse Square and the city below but poses an interesting challenge for crews that need to work on the facade of the building. Traditional wisdom would say hang a work cage and move it ten thousand times or a standard platform across the jutting corners and try your best to reach in to work on the windows.  But that's where traditional wisdom ends and sheer innovative genius begins. The guys at Superior Scaffold wanted something safer and more cost effective.  And sometimes when we come up...

Double Wide, frame vs. system scaffold – when to use

At first glance, what do you see?  A double-wide canopy spanning the entire sidewalk? If you did - you would be correct but there is more to it than meets the eye.  You don't think we would just toss up a double wide sidewalk shed using our famous 767-00 "Philly" frames would you?  Of course not.  What you have to remember is that this a large span we have to cover so the facade resoration can go on overhead.  And there are certain regulations that are mandated by our state as to the amount of weight this canonpy must support.  In...

Emergency Scaffold Services – Canopy and facade restoration

Here's the deal.  Nobody likes to hear the word emergency.  Not even us at Superior Scaffold.  But the truth of the matter is that life does happen and we can help. Sometimes things just wear out or a truck backs into something or water leaks in.  But when it happens to your building, property or project we are there.  We are one of the few scaffolding companies that have an emergency services line set up just for this type of event.   (215) 743-2200.  And in most times we can be onsite within hours assessing the situation and implimenting a plan to...

How to erect a canopy – Aramark Tower, Philadelphia

It's not every day that you get to see just how we erect a sidewalk shed (canopy).  We usually concentrate on the finished product and how well the client liked our work.  But today is another story.  You get to see just what it looks like before, during and after we install overhead protection on a job site.  We are going to look at the work done in the middle of one of Center City's busiest intersections at 11th and Market - the Aramark Tower. Crews usually start at night to avoid the massive traffic that will ensue during the daytime.  In this...
