We get this call quite a bit. And even though it’s a smaller job, we wanted to show you what can be done when there doesn’t not seem to be an easy solution.
The good people at Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy were installing a new HVAC unit and couldn’t figure out how to make the tie-in at the top safely using their ladders and scissor lifts, so they called Superior Scaffold.
Superior estimator and creative guru, Pat McAndrew, quickly devised a solution that put system scaffolding on either side of the unit and then added an access ladder and 2 decks for workers on the top so they could span the section across the apex of the HVAC unit. Crews were then able to safely tap into the duct work up top and then down into the HVAC unit itself.
It looks simple, but trust us, it takes an expert designer to devise a safe and simple solution like this.

This is one of my favorites. Yes, it’s technically under a building – the Philadelphia VA Medical Center but it’s still underground.
Superior Scaffold set this up so crews could get to the electrical underneath the floor of the hospital.
But that’s not the half of it. Getting the equipment into and beneath the hospital building was the major challenge. Check out the video for what was involved.
Superior salesman Tom Creighton did a bang up job estimating the layout and materials to make this happen. Not only is it under the building but it’s on a radical inclined as well.
Crews had to lug all of the materials through a maze beneath the hospital and then out a tiny door and then climb up a rope just to get to the bottom of the bottom. And then they had to assemble the scaffolding; all of this intricate craftsmanship to run new conduit from one electrical box to another!
In the end, the client was happy. The job was completed. And we got another story to tell.
