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...

Breathing new life into 4601 Market St. – Negative Air Enclosures

A more appropriate title would be: Sucking Old Life Out of 4601 Market. Say what? The former Provident Mutual Life Insurance campus is going to be turned into a new headquarters for the Philadelphia Police Department, Philadelphia Health Department, and City Morgue. As part of the redevelopment, Superior Scaffold is providing scaffolding support for the negative air enclosures. Yep, you heard correctly.  Negative air enclosure – it essentially creates negative air pressure in the building while crews are doing asbestos abatement work.  The contaminated air in the building gets sucked out through these large chutes that Superior Scaffold erected (then skinned or wrapped) and...

Two tiered scaffold platform system – Academy House lobby

I love to see our guys get creative with a scaffolding design. Not because they want to but because the location dictates the layout.This multi-tiered, multilevel scaffolding in the lobby at the Academy House Condominiums was just that kind of project from the base all the way up four stories.Crews needed to get to up to the plaster ceiling, 4 floors up inside the entry way, as part of their new remodel. Sounds like an easy job – until you look at the contour of the atrium and the amount of access they needed.  You can see from the photos...

Mast Climber & Suspended Scaffold at Parkway Condos

The luxurious Parkway condos at 2601 Pennsylvania ave., Philadelphia, PA needed to give crews access to the entire façade of their building, for repointing, masonry and window work, so they called Superior Scaffold. This was a perfect time for our resident Mast Climber & swing stage expert, Bob Sarkisian, to snap some photos of just what goes into erecting a mast climbing job. This is our heavy duty twin mast climber (MC-3615) capable of holding as much as 8,000 pounds on one work platform. The mast sections are light compared to other heavy duty climbers, only 110 lbs. easily installed by two...

Cantilever scaffolding 28 floors up at 3601 Market Street

How would you describe working 28 floors up, protected by only your safety harness…?  I’ve seen it but luckily I don’t have to be the one assembling it. I have the utmost respect for our crew guys that do this everyday. It can get hairy “up air” so our guys have to be extra careful. Winds and elements can have a big effect on erection. Superior Scaffold was called in to help crews get to the steel super structure on the outside of the top of this new building construction at 3601 Market Street. If you look to the top right of...

Suspended Scaffold & Overhead Protection Watermark Building

The Watermark at Logan Square is a retirement community in Center City, Philadelphia providing independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care in a continuum of care. Crews were doing a mixture of façade repair, restoration, caulking, painting and patchwork. This was a multi-discipline set up for the Superior Scaffold Dream team. (Suspended scaffold & Frame divisions) We had to assemble an outrageous overhead protection system (canopy, sidewalk shed) at the base of the building on multiple levels so they could keep the business up and running while repairs took place overhead. And the swing stage team had to get...

Overhead protection for John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls High School

In honor of 40 years of SNL (Saturday Night Live) I thought I’d post some pics of our emergency services overhead protection job at Hallahan Catholic Girl’s School. Superior Scaffold was called in to provide overhead protection so crews could repair pieces of the façade that were falling off.  If you look carefully, on this photo, you can see some of the damaged masonry work covered by blue plastic. Superior quickly erected this canopy to protect students and pedestrians coming in and around the school.  Our emergency services line is open 24 hours a day and we specialize in getting crews out...

Scaffolding & Containment Wrap for Swimwear Company remodel

Superior Scaffold was called out to provide a system scaffold and containment wrap (enclosure) so crews could demo the front of this store and remodel it – during the winter months.   Containment wrap is great for keeping the heat in and the elements out when working in cold conditions. This was the old Cameo Water Wear store in Ardmore, PA specializing in swimwear and weekend wear. I can’t say if they are the ones doing the remodel or if there were actual swimsuit models in there  – sometimes we are privy to that information but not always. However, this scaffolding was unique, in...

Scaffolding the Philadelphia Museum of Art

A 117 foot tall stair tower inside an elevator shaft. Wow!   Here's a cool view before the the decks went in. Now that’s a seriously tall stair tower. (And inside an elevator shaft no less.) So that begs the question – Why? Image from Reddit Okay – so let’s shed a little light on this subterranean scaffold soiree. You see, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is commencing on a renewal and expansion of epic proportions. And it’s designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry (famous for the expressive sculptural forms of buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum in Spain). This new expansion is going...

Superior Scaffold provides mast climber for AQ Rittenhouse construction

The $33 million project is a redevelopment of the building at 20th and Chestnut that used to house the YWCA and will now be a 12 story, 110-unit first class luxury mixed-use multi-family apartment building with street level retail/restaurant and lower level full floor institutional tenant.And since this is in the heart of Center City and on a main thoroughfare – Superior Scaffold crews had to wait until the wee hours of the night to deliver and unload the equipment when there was diminished auto and pedestrian traffic. But I digress.The general contractor hired Superior Scaffold to provide a mast...
