Under Armour needed sidewalk overhead protection

When the Under Armour corporation needed protection – who did they call?  Yup, Superior Scaffold. The company that makes heat protection and sun protection sport and fitness wear called Superior to erect an overhead protection system or canopy or sidewalk shed, whatever you’d like to call it, at their new store in Center City at 1529 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA.  And we gladly obliged.  Hey, they protect us everyday with our Superior Scaffold logo shirts so it was the least we could do for them. This was kind of unique too, in that we erected our canopy with one leg sitting on...

Scaffolding at Bryn Mawr College, M. Carey Thomas Library

Superior Scaffold was called upon once again to Bryn Mawr College.  This time we are providing restoration crews access to the facade of the venerable M. Carey Thomas Library. Known as The Thomas Great Hall, this beautiful building has been designated a National Historic Landmark and has been one of Bryn Mawr College’s most important spaces since it opened in 1902.  It’s a monument to the second president of the college.  Superior Scaffold prides itself on being the best in the business when it comes to erecting scaffolding in and around historic structures without leaving a trace - and we did just that.  This may...

Bringing baby back (Bell, not ribs) 1631 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA

This great looking old structure was known as the Bell Telephone Building back in the day.  But in the early 1980's the government broke up what was one of the largest monopolies in US history.  This effectively took what was the Bell Telephone System and split it into entirely separate companies that would continue to provide telephone service.  They would be known as baby Bells.  But we are here to talk about our suspended scaffold on this Baby Bell Building. Click on that link to see what it looked like as restoration started. This 17 story high-rise was built in 1915 and showcases that good old fashion...

A house of many colors… Declaration (Graff) House, Jefferson House Scaffolding

This is the house where Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, that all important document that would birth a nation.  Jefferson rented several rooms at the home of Jacob Graff, Jr, a local bricklayer - thus, the one of many names for this house.  And what’s crazy is that it’s a reproduction!  The original structure was built in 1775 and then torn down at some point.  This red-brick house at Seventh and Market streets was reconstructed in 1975. Superior Scaffold was called in to provide scaffold support and overhead protection so crews could repaint and repair all of the woodwork...

Suspended Scaffold & Canopy at Kennedy House

  It’s 2017 people and we are “swinging” for the fences.  Yes, I just said that.  We are just glad that the weather is good and we can keep our clients happy. We’ve written about our work at the Kennedy House several times before, once for another canopy for some exterior repairs (you can read about it here) and the other time for our emergency services team protecting pedestrians (read about it here). This time we are here about the swing stages and canopy for the masonry repair and painting going on the exterior of this building.  MPG (Masonry Preservation Group) has been doing a great job diligently bringing...

Superior is featured in Scaffold & Access Magazine!

Scaffold & Access Magazine's latest issue features an article exploring the dynamics of working with family in the scaffold industry. Superior Scaffold is honored to be one of 3 companies featured. You can read the article here or click on the photos below. Look at a young Albert!  The physical similarities to our CEO, his son, Guy are staggering.  It's from Albert's original vision that Guy was able to continue to grow and build Superior into the customer-centric, quick responsive, scaffold company that it is today. A big shout out to Miss Cathee at Scaffold & Acess Magazine for her work on the article and featuring us.  And...

4601 Market Street (Phase 2 – Scaffolding) Access

We are back for phase two of the renovation process.  This time around we are providing restoration crews access to the top portion of the building, including the 7 foot long wind vane ship.  Yes, incredibly, that IS a giant wind vane. I wish I could have gotten a close up shot of that old ship but as you can see the scaffold crew was just erecting the base portion when I got there. Look at the corrosion that has built up over the years on the dome and the ship.  Those will be brought back to their former glory.  We’ve blogged...

Chasing Steam. Somewhere in Philadelphia…

Here’s the skinny.  And I do mean “skinny” on this job, people.  You’d have to be the size of our marketing director to squeeze into this steam tunnel buried somewhere under the city of brotherly love. This utility tunnel, corridor or utilidor delivers steam to customers all around the city.  Just like most things, me included, they need repair over time. It seems there were some leaks and actual damage to the cement above that needed to be fixed.  So the call went out to the skinny guys at Superior Scaffold to give them access along two sections. The first section...
