Best Specialty Contractor Project 

Superior Scaffold Services, Inc. | Reading Terminal Market Swing Solution

Project Description

Accessing the side of the Reading Terminal Market building to restore windows and masonry seemed impossible. The lower roof was too weak to support a traditional scaffold, the curved roof and jutting cornice wouldn’t allow a suspended scaffold, and the alley was too narrow to use a high reach. The innovative solution was to swing the scaffold from the parking garage 15 feet away. By creating an extended swing beam, Superior Scaffold Services was able to span the gap between the buildings and safely place suspended scaffold platforms close enough to the Reading Terminal Market façade for workers to get the access they needed.
