Scaffold solutions in tight spaces – Bryn Mawr Hospital mechanical room

I wish that every job could be as expansive as Independence Hall, or Amtrak 30th St. Station or Citizens Bank Park / Philly Stadium but the reality is that a lot of the work we get is trying to come up with scaffolding solutions in very tight spaces. Our guys are some of the best at designing scaffold that will get crews access to just about any working space.

The mechanical room at the Bryn Mawr hospital is a perfect example. There was virtually no room in there to get the scaffolding in – let alone set it up.  Crews needed to get on top of this maze of equipment to install pipe for new HVAC and to run two new electrical lines above that massive green tank.  But how could they get “up air” safely to do it?

Superior scaffold devised a plan to navigate the spider web of equipment and get crews above it all where they could work safely and comfortably (check out the photos).

Superior used a combination of system scaffold, diagonals, decking, handrail and various other gear to create a safe working platform. In one picture you can even see that we had to cantilever one leg around the green monster to carry the decking above, very innovative solution in a tight space.

The job was a smashing success.  Crews got their work done safely and efficiently and the hospital was thrilled.

Shoring Rental Division – Superior Scaffold

And for our final rental division – Shoring.

In simple terms, shoring is the act of propping up with shores.  Shoring is a general term used in construction to describe the process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed.

Now, a little more clarificaton – from the SSFI (Scaffolding, Shoring, Forming Institute) Shoring is not scaffolding and scaffolding is not shoring.  The difference is in the use.

The American National Standards Institute describes scaffolding as “a temporary elevated or suspended work unit and its supporting structure used for supporting worker(s) or materials, or both,” while the same agency describes shoring as “ The vertical supporting members in a formwork system.”

Although scaffolding is not shoring and shoring is not scaffolding, remember that each system requires proper fall protection, access, and strength.  If layout work or load calculations are required, Superior has an in-house engineering staff available for customer support. For further information, call Superior Scaffold  at (215) 743-2200 and ask for Mike.

Shoring up Norristown, PA parking garage – concrete repair

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

Check out this cool shoring job at the Norristown, PA Main street parking garage in Montgomery County.

The concrete beams were deteriorating and needed repair.  Superior Scaffold was called in to shore up 5 floors of the garage so crews could remove and replace the bad sections of concrete.  We shored up the supporting joists with our 2′ X 5′ Hi Load shoring frames so crews could work on the main cement beams.

The challenge here was that the parking garage only had a clearance of 6 feet so our normal deliver trucks wouldn’t fit.

Crews had to unload the Hi-load shoring frames, jacks, and heads onto pickup trucks and deliver the equipment to each respective floor so they could then be put into place.

Mast Climber Rental Division – Superior Scaffold, Philadelphia, PA

In the previous post we talked about our Suspended Scaffold Rental Division – and today we are going to look at our Mast Climber Rental Division – which is also a part of our Powered Access Division (along with Suspended Scaffolds).

Mast climbing work platforms (MCWP) or Mast Climbers are particularly useful when access to a long span is needed so workers can quickly and easily move across the entire width of the wall or surface, at varying heights.

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, rent, rents, access, masonry, gc, pa, philly, philadelphia, NY, NJ, DE, MD, mast climber

Marquis de Lafayette, Cape May, NJ

These powered access platforms are popular with masonry contractors because they provide a safe, affordable, efficient access solution.  Superior Scaffold rents mast climbers that come in single, double or custom configurations depending upon the length and shape of the work platform needed.

By using different size platform decks you can erect a mast climbing work platform to fit the lengths of just about any facade being accessed.

Virtua Hospital, Voorhees, NJ

When to use Mast Climbers:

  • When working from the ground up is preferable
  • Supports from 2,000-8,000 pounds (from 2 to 8 times the capacity of a suspended scaffold)
  • Wheelable base unit allows for easy maneuvering and set up

Some places to use mast climbers:  Medical center, school, hospital, factory, silo, church, prison, residential project, casino, warehouse, super market and more.

Some uses for Mast Climbers:

  • Inspection

  • Bricklaying
  • Construction

Superior Scaffold Suspended / Swing Rental Division

In the last post we talked about our Scaffold Rental Division – but today we are going to look at our Suspended Scaffold or swing department – which is a part of our Powered Access Division.

Suspended scaffolds or swing stages are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high-rise buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other large structures.

scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, swings, suspended scaffold, PA, DE, NJ, MD,

Suspended scaffold is ideal for projects where traditional scaffolding is not practical or cost effective.  We carry the Altrex Modular Suspended Platform System that is super flexible and allows for access to the building at many locations simultaneously, allowing work to be done faster and more efficiently.

Scaffold Rental, Scaffolding Rental. Sales, Service, PA, Philly, Philadelphia, New Jersey, DE, NYC

Suspended scaffolds  (swing staging, suspended platforms) are great for working safely at heights.

Typical applications for our suspended scaffolds are:

  • Inspection
  • Construction
  • Maintenance
  • Renovation
  • Painting
  • Cleaning
  • Concrete repair
  • Cladding

suspended, superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, rent, rents, access, masonry, gc, pa, philly, philadelphia, NY, NJ, DE, MD (215) 743-2200

Altrex offers solutions for various complex access situations.  With the wide variety of components for the Modular Suspended Platform System many custom-made configurations can be built.   (see above)  The experienced Altrex user can design a platform for safe access to even the most complex contours of any structure and height.  For example maintenance platforms for football stadiums, oil-tankers and silo’s.  (see our blog on adapting to a building’s shape)

Scaffold rental, Scaffolding Rental, Swing, Suspended, PA, Philly, Philadelphia, NJ, New Jersey, DE, NYC

Benefits:

There are a multitude of accessories, such as corner and angle sections, double decker & double width kits that can be used to find a solution for almost any access situation.

Flexibility – The user can build any configuration necessary to fit the structure precisely and allow close access to the working surface.

Compact Transportation and Storage – The modular construction saves space and makes transportation easy.  A complete 40 foot swing stage fits in the back of a small truck!

Light Weight – High capacity – The smart design of the Altrex system results in high load capacities despite its light weight.

Fast Assembly and Disassembly – The complete Altrex platform can be disassembled quickly and without special tools.

Meets or Exceeds the most stringent Safety Standards.
