Superior Scaffold adapts scaffold for shoring at CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia)

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the oldest and top ranked children’s hospital in the United States, called Superior Scaffold to first come out and scaffold in a stairwell for removal of lights and mechanicals in a research center building on their new campus.

The hospital, located next to the University of Pennsylvania, then called Superior to return to the stairwell to see if they could adapt scaffolding, already in place, to provide shoring so a portion of the 8” concrete ceiling slab could be cut out and removed.  Estimator and scaffolding expert, Pat McAndrew, took one look at the job and said, “no problem”.  And then quickly came up with a solution to adapt the existing scaffolding into a superior shoring device.

The resulting design allowed the scaffolding to shore up the slab so it could be removed.  It’s this kind of quick thinking and customer service that makes Superior Scaffold number one in the Tri-State Area.

Superior Scaffold at Frick Laboratory, Princeton University, NJ

Superior Scaffold was called out to the Frick Laboratory at Princeton University to build scaffolding for crews to get access to the 3 floors of the structure.  Crews will then install trash chutes so they can demo the entire interior of the building.

Princeton University officials say that the former Frick lab will remain vacant until renovation funds become available.

The Frick Lab is named after industrialist and art patron Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919).  The lab, built in 1929, housed the academic chemistry facilities for over 83 years making it one of the oldest functioning labs in the United States.

Superior Scaffold’s swing stage department was called in to help with the EIFS facade replacement on the towers.  On this multi-phase job, Superior had to install a roof perimeter guardrail, duct protection and system scaffold beneath the swings.  Superior used 3 full Swings, 2 Corner Swings, 1 C shaped swing (4 hoist platform), System scaffold and 1 material hoist.

The major challenges faced on this job were the odd shapes and capacity swings that had to be built to allow crews access to all areas of the exterior of the building.
