A renovation for the ARCH Building at University of Pennsylvania

Superior Scaffold salesman, Anthony Pini rocked the house on this job at the University of Pennsylvania’s ARCH Building (Arts, Research and Culture House) in Philadelphia, PA.   Not only did he meet the client’s needs on every phase, but he went so far as to bring the crews coffee and donuts on several occasions.  He’s is certainly the king of customer service for Superior Scaffold.

This is a very deceptive job from the outside because it’s shrouded from trees, signs, and netting.  It masks the major renovation going on both inside and outside of this historic building.  Built in 1929, it was in desperate need of a renovation.  This $15 million redo will add new flourishes while preserving the original ornate structure.

The job was unique because it required Superior to scaffold half of the building so crews could get to the roof, façade, gables, balconies, windows, and even interiors all at the same time.  It was truly a multi-trade scaffolding job.  But the truly challenging part was that Superior crews had to take it all down and put it back up again when the work moved to the other side of the building.

You can see here that intricate woodworking around the ceiling also needed to be addressed, so Superior provided the University of Pennsylvania with several rolling towers for the inside of the massive structure.

The U of P had strict deadlines and timeframes for each phase of the job which Pini and Superior Scaffold met and exceeded.
