The Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia comes to life!

The Metropolitan Opera House or Met located at 858 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia (yes, Philly has a Metropolitan – not just NY) is undergoing a $56 Million restoration as a new Live Nation concert venue. The beautiful building has been sitting vacant for years. The 39,200-square foot theater was built in 1908 by Oscar Hammerstein I and called the Philadelphia Opera House. When it first opened in it was home to the Philadelphia Opera Company and sat some 4000 people as the largest venue of its kind in the world. In 1910 Hammerstein sold it to the Metropolitan Opera of New...

Superior Scaffold congratulates the Super Bowl LII champion Eagles!

What an unbelievable game it was! And what a season this has been! I’ll admit I’m normally not a huge football fan but how can you not get fired up watching the Eagles overcome adversity and go on to win the Super Bowl! What made me an Eagles fan? Well, it started back in October with a special tour through the Link and an opportunity to meet resident badass, defensive end, Brandon Graham. https://youtu.be/msafVeGHaRc And it was his strip sack of Tom Brady that pretty much sealed the win! He’s a super nice guy and one heck of a player. And then we got a tour...

Superior Scaffold – Can’t Touch This!

  At first glance, this mixed bag of tricks seems as fresh as a pair of MC Hammer pants. It looks like they used as many different access disciplines as possible to protect and erect a structure. But further examination proves otherwise. When they decided to erect an apartment complex where the old parking lot used to be they didn't think they would have to work around one lone structure. And part of the deal was that they couldn't touch that building at all. So what do you do? You bust a move and call Superior Scaffold and we come up with a legit...

Suspended Scaffold & Overhead Protection at Rittenhouse Plaza, Philadelphia

Deep in the heart of Philadelphia’s most prestigious historic district (Rittenhouse Square) is this gem of a pre-war building called Rittenhouse Plaza at 19th and Walnut.  The historical structure of this building is being preserved to retain the integrity of the original design (1926). Superior Scaffold was called in to help get crews all around the perimeter of this 21 story art deco building while they give it an extensive exterior restoration.  Our experience working with historic buildings gave us the upper hand in designing a suspended scaffold plan to get crews onto the facade.  Bob Sarkisian, V.P. of Suspended Scaffolds...

Superior Scaffold hangs a whopper of a job at Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY

This is a monstor of a job.  We promised some photos and since we, at Superior Scaffold, keep our promises - here they are.   It's hard to believe that this all hangs 40 feet ABOVE the entire gaming room floor while people are hustling and bustling about underneath. They sit above the interior that is the size of 2 full length football fields.     These wings or fingers are 300 and 400 feet long!     What this project entails is getting crews up underneath the ceiling while the casino remains open for business as usual so they can get the...

How to have a positive experience with a setback – Porch brackets at 1900 Rittenhouse, Philadelphia

It’s time to pay tribute to the outsiders in our company.  Yes, it’s the swing department.  In fact, I hate to admit this but they came up with that very clever headline.  I wish I could take credit for it but I can’t. Is our swing department the “bad boys” of the company?  You tell me?  In their spare time all they do is race cars (fast cars) build hot rods, snowmobile through the frozen tundra (very fast) talk about driving fast, and taking chances.  Have you detected a theme here?  All except for the one VW building hippy who just...

Bend Me, Shape me – Superior Scaffold swings at the CityView Condos

Who would have thought that the 1960’s cult hit from the band The American Breed would have been a perfect fit for this suspended scaffold job at the CityView Condos.  But once you see what Superior Scaffold can do with modular swing stages you will understand the significance of,  “Bend me, Shape Me”.   Every now and then you run into a job that doesn’t have a flat surface – like here at 2001 Hamilton St, Philadelphia, PA 19130.  The building is unique, in that, it has 45 degree corners.  This poses a challenge for most contractors trying to do any...

Holy Erection, Batman – 13th & Chestnut Emergency Services call to Superior Scaffold

I love it when we can help someone out in a pinch.  That’s why we have the emergency services line.  (215) 743-2200.  Kind of like the Bat phone for scaffolding.  I’d like to think that our very own Bob Sarkisian is Batman (in a way).  But really, the only time he’s like the caped crusader is when he’s climbing the side of a building in one of his swing stages or answering the Bat phone, like this case. We say it – and we mean it.  We will have crews on-site within 24 hours and the problem solved or at least...

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...
