Superior Scaffold was called in to help rescue the statue after the earthquake – and now 5 months to the day – she is going back up on top of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center. Congrats to all! Here’s the video story from NBC news in Philadelphia.
No one ever wants to receive the call that a Fed Ex truck backed into the scaffolding on a job, especially one that sits in middle of one of Center City’s busiest intersections. But that’s exactly what happened at the Aramark Tower. Somehow, Fed Ex backed their truck into the aluminum canopy that was around the building at 11th and Market. (Hey, accidents happen).
The call went out to Superior Scaffold and their 24-hour emergency services team was on the spot within hours to repair the damage, averting what could have been a very dangerous situation.
Superior’s Anthony Pini got the call at 6:00pm on Thursday evening and immediately sent out a crew to repair the broken scaffolding. Within hours everything was back to normal and the Aramark Tower was back in business. And the canopy looks great too!
That’s precisely why Superior has a 24-hour emergency services team. So if you ever have an emergency – don’t hesitate to call Superior. (215) 743-2200
Superior Scaffold was called in to assist with the renovations of the historic Strawbridge & Clothier building in downtown Philadelphia. The 100 year-old building was once the worlds largest dry goods building. Over the years it has sat in disrepair until they decided to bring it back to it’s former glory. They new center will be home for 100 businesses as 1000 residential units. They are doing a superb job of keeping the old style while giving the new structure nice upgrades.
The bank of 20 elevators, yes, I said 20 elevators, wow, are a glorious site to see, however, only 10 will remain in service. The other shafts will be used for vents, electrical, plumbing and other things. It’s really a smart use of space.
Superior was called in to help assist crews working in the elevator shafts. Aluminum beams were placed across the open shafts on specific floors and then planked so crews could work inside the actual shaft. The units were moved up each floor as needed.
I just find it fascinating the ways crews can use scaffolding to access different parts of jobs, all kinds of jobs, large and small.
Superior Scaffold has been there from the beginning, after the earthquake, through the dismantlement, and now the reassembly.
This story from the people of Philly.com really shows the delicate work involved with putting the statue back up on top of the Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, in Camden, NJ one piece at time. And of course, that’s our scaffolding all around her.
