SIDEWALK SHED & BRIDGE
Is a structure built over the sidewalk and around the exterior of a building, while work is occurring, to protect pedestrians from falling debris; also called a “Sidewalk Bridge”, “Canopy” or “sidewalk shed”.
sidewalk shed must be erected whenever materials will be hoisted over the sidewalk, regardless of building height or horizontal distance between building and sidewalk. Building owners may have to erect a sidewalk shed before beginning an inspection or renovation of a building facade, construction of a new building or demolition of an existing structure.
In Philadelphia and most other large cities, a permit is required prior to erecting a sidewalk shed from the department of Licenses and Inspections (L & I).
Superior Scaffold custom designs their sidewalk sheds for the each building, allowing for the greatest pedestrian mobility and safety.
There are many steps that must be taken prior to inspecting, building, or renovating. Superior can help you through the entire process, including picking an inspection team, permits, scaffold requirements, management, delivery, erection and dismantlement and many other specialized services. We are Philadelphia’s leader in sidewalk shed services. We want your business to continue as usual while being inspected or construction is under way.
