Transport Platform at University of Delaware Stadium – “Super Responder”

I heard the term “Super Responder” today. It was in the context of being an Empath. They say that some empathic people have nervous systems that react more quickly and strongly to certain stimuli than others. I personally absorb other people’s emotions whether they are good, bad, anxious or stressed. There are times when I literally have to excuse myself and let them run off of me and get re-centered again. Growing up, my friends and family called me shy, overly sensitive, antisocial and even eccentric, when in truth, I just felt things more heavily than my cohorts. Psychologists use the term...

Scaffolding St. Agatha – St. James Church, 38th and Chestnut

Working on St. Agatha - St. James Church at 38th and Chestnut is one of those rare opportunities where we get to help renovate an historic landmark. St. James was the first Catholic Church on the west side of the Schuylkill River, founded 1850. St. Agatha, 3813 Spring Garden Street, was founded shortly thereafter in 1865. In 1976 after St. Agatha suffered a second fire the two churches were incorporated into St. Agatha-St. James.  So what does it take to be able to work on an historic structure like this? It takes skill, patience, customer service, more skill, and the ability to adapt...

Get up and take another step! Scaffolding First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia

First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, built in 1872 (at 21st & Walnut), needed a complete exterior renovation and the good people at Mara were just the ones to git ‘er done. They called Superior Scaffold to help them rock and roll the love all around this beautiful structure. It was complicated but nothing our backline badass builders couldn’t handle. We used system scaffold and decked it out at just about every level. Then we netted it for protection. LIFE IS GOING TO THROW IT AT YOU, PEOPLE. YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES – EITHER STAY ON THE GROUND AND LET THEM WIN OR...

Tommy can you hear me? Shoring parking garage at ACME Markets

How do you help a customer that needs to support the top deck of a parking garage while they repair a cut tension cable and repave? You do what super Superior Scaffold estimator Tommy (can you hear me) Creighton did and that’s erect three system scaffold shoring towers to support the structure. Holy moly, you try saying that sentence three times really fast. The real challenge of this job was making sure that the areas that needed support were shored up so the folks at Structural Maintenance Systems could do their work. Thanks to Alternate Design Solutions for their calculations to make...

Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish – Wahoo’s, Swings, Overhead Protection System & Canopy Extravaganza

I love it when a client takes something that might not really belong at their location and makes it their own. That’s just what the good people at Wahoo’s on Chestnut Street did. Life gave them tilapia and they turned it into tuna. Look at how they added their own decorative touches. Now, this wasn’t a walk in the park for our “King of Swing”, Bob Sarkisian, either. Watts Restoration was doing a total revamp of the exterior of building at 3180 Chestnut St. and needed a way to keep the pedestrians and the customers at the outdoor dining area safe while they...

Transport Platform for interior renovation at Rodney Court, Wilmington, DE

Superior Scaffold provided our TP-2500 transport platform to crews at the historic Rodney Court apartment building (now Birchwood at Rodney Court) for a complete interior restoration. This is a pretty cool job for lots of reasons. We had to use system scaffold to reach each level of this six-story building and then deck it in as a sort of landing platform for crews to get their materials in through windows on each floor. To make it just a little more challenging, we mounted the mast for the transport platform directly to the building on one side and in between the scaffold to...

Unique Scaffold Applications, SEPTA Cantilever, Temple Rock Wall

Now each of these could be its very own post but I thought I’d combine them into one article of cool scaffold jobs. The idea is to show two interesting applications for scaffolding that you might not have considered. Let’s start with this cantilever work deck at the newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center (originally the Margaret-Orthodox-Arrott station and formerly named Margaret-Orthodox station). Try saying that five times really fast. It is an elevated railway station on SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line, located above the intersection of Frankford and Oxford Avenues, in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As you can see from the pics we had to erect scaffold inside a decorative steel tower that would allow...
