Triple the action for Superior Scaffold at the Old Dublin Pike Bridge in Doylestown, PA.

The stone arch bridge was originally constructed back in 1875 and then rehabbed in 1947.  So it was time for a reconditioning – seems that this old bridge still has over 5,000 cars travel over her every day in Doylestown, PA.  Crews needed a way to support the structure and to get into the arches to repair the stones and masonry while keeping the road open above.

This was the challenge for Superior Scaffold.

First order of business was diverting the river through two of the arches so one could be fairly dry while the scaffolding was erected.  Then, once that was built, the water had to be diverted again so the second, and then third arch could be constructed.

The next challenge was how to best shore up the arches so work could be completed but also support enough weight for heavy machinery traveling the road over head.  Superior engineer Bob Robinson decided on 20k scaffold frames to hold up the shoring beams and wood supports.  It allowed the road to remain open for business while construction crews completed the work below.

It’s a unique way to solve the problem and keep a major thoroughfare open.

The job went off without a hitch and the mighty river is flowing once again and cars are happily traveling over the old bridge in Buck County.

Bend Me, Shape me – Superior Scaffold swings at the CityView Condos

Who would have thought that the 1960’s cult hit from the band The American Breed would have been a perfect fit for this suspended scaffold job at the CityView Condos.  But once you see what Superior Scaffold can do with modular swing stages you will understand the significance of,  “Bend me, Shape Me”.

Every now and then you run into a job that doesn’t have a flat surface – like here at 2001 Hamilton St, Philadelphia, PA 19130.  The building is unique, in that, it has 45 degree corners.  This poses a challenge for most contractors trying to do any façade or window work.  But with our staging we helped the contractors configure this job with the least amount of suspended scaffold.

We have the ability to configure the swings to almost any shape.

Thanks to our friends at Logo-BeeAccess w Superior Scaffold who provide us with the necessary equipment to make that happen.  Take a look at some of these photos.

This particular building has a total of 8, 45 degree corners and is approximately 240 feet in length.  We were able to cover then entire building using 6 suspended scaffolds.

Superior scaffold also provided 400 ft of overhead protection.

So the next time you hear:

Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me
Long as you love me
It’s all right
Bend me, shape me
Anyway you want me
You got the power to turn on the light

Think about Superior Scaffold’s ability to custom fit any swing to access those hard to reach areas.
