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...

Multiple access units at Parkway Condominium Complex, 2601 Pennsylvania Ave.

Like many of the older buildings in Philadelphia this one needed a total masonry restoration. After years of being exposed to the elements parts of the masonry needed to be cleaned, repaired and even replaced. You’ve seen many of the before and after photos on our blog and it’s just truly amazing what these crews can do to revitalize and preserve an old building. Sometimes they make it look better than brand new. Joseph Dugan, Inc is one of the finest in the business and we are always proud to provide them with the equipment necessary to revitalize these older structures. When it...

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...

Higher ground, Penn Medicine Canopy, 34th & Convention Center Blvd

We’ve been all over this project and most of our work has seemed to come in and around the giant hole where Penn Tower once stood (and is now the home of the massive Penn Medicine Pavilion). But this bridge column canopy or overhead protection system at 34th and Convention Center Blvd really stood out. First, because it was on higher ground and second because it was a beautiful piece of work. Stretching 135’ long by 8’ wide with a 300 lb. per sq/ft rating this canopy ran parallel to Convention Center Boulevard and beneath the pedestrian walkway and new steel for...

Take me to Funky Town, Canopy & Suspended Scaffold, 25 S. Stockton St., Trenton, NJ

This funky building sits on the corner of S. Stockton and E. Front St. I liked how symmetrical it looked. I’m not sure what’s inside but just from the outside it reminded me of one of the old radio buildings from the thirties. Check out the crazy radio tower on the top. RKO came immediately to mind but I know that this is modern. So what was Superior Scaffold doing there? We provided roughly 150 feet of canopy or overhead protection on each side and a swing stage (suspended scaffold) so masonry restoration crews could get to every inch of the façade....

Judgement Day, Scaffolding 402 E. State St., Trenton, NJ

“I won’t run the guilt is mine. Too long denying all my crimes. Face what I deserve. Here comes Judgement Day!"  (song below) Lots of indictments lately so I thought this post and song would be fitting. Seems that nobody wants to admit guilt in anything anymore no matter how complicit. What happened to honesty, honor and integrity? Instead, it’s all about how can I cover my own butt and not spend one single day in jail. Now, we could have a huge philosophical discussion about how wealth and influence tends to sway the judicial system but I won’t go there. Let’s just hope that...

It’s a mystery to me. Scaffolding Conwyn Arms, Bryn Mawr, PA

I do know a Bronwyn… so I had to hit the google and see just what is the definition of Conwyn. Here’s what I found. _______________ Yep. Nothing. I couldn’t even get to the root of the word. So I looked up Bronwyn and this is what it said: English language feminine given name, which is an anglicized variant of the Welsh name Bronwen, meaning bron ("breast") and gwen ("white, fair, blessed)". Left with really no answer as to what exactly Conwyn Arms meant, I turned Superior Scaffold’s resident nerd, estimator, history buff, and garbage collector, Pat, to see what he knew. And I’ll...
