Superior Scaffold doing double duty

In this edition of “Scaffolding Philadelphia” we get to show you how we can do double duty with our scaffolding creations.

This particular story was previously documented in the number 1 hit blog “Bend Me, Shape Me” that detailed the versatility of the altrex staging used by our suspeded scaffold division.  But this soon to be number one blog hit “Double Duty” (I can see Foreigner singing the theme song here or since this is a Tony P job – even Journey with Steve Perry) details the lower half of the job at City View.

Not  only did this overhead protection have to protect the general public from all of the window and facade work going on above them but it also had to become the platforms for the swings to sit on at the end of the day.

This is a fairly extensive canopy that had to allow for the entire walkway, entryway, and even shops to remain open during the entire phase of renovation.

The people at 2001 Hamilton St, Philadelphia, PA 19130 were more than gracious while Superior Scaffold erected this sidewalk shed out front.  Here’s a shot of the  job as it is being built.

Here’s a shot from the roof where you can see the outrigger for the swings dangling below.

And this is a shot of the building’s setback that the swing department had to negotiate.  See the shots below on how they managed that – or read the “Bend Me, Shape Me” blog.

The day I was “up air” super salesman, Anthony Pini, provided coffee and donuts for the crew.  It obviously paid off because not only did the overhead protection do the job but it looked great as well.

You can see the extensive work crews did to keep this patio restaurant open for business.
