To ensure the smooth and efficient running of your scaffolding project, it is imperative that you give in-depth and relevant information to your scaffolding contractor. Here are the main points to consider when gathering this information.
Scaffolding companies will need to know what type of project it is before agreeing to the job. This is because they will have to work out which scaffolding type is required, the equipment needed and the number of staff. Here are the four main project types:
- Building maintenance
- Restoration work
- Home or office renovations
- Window cleaning
Though you might not know exactly how long your project may take, any scaffolding company needs to know an approximate time estimate so that they can plan their business accordingly. It is also important to know what dates the project will cover as certain parts of the year are more expensive than others and forecasted weather is a factor. With this information, your scaffolding contractor will know how to estimate a price for you.
The location and geography of your project will help your scaffolding contractor prepare for the type of setting and environment that they’re expected to build, fix, inspect and dismantle the scaffolding in. There needs to be sufficient space to bring the required materials, vehicles and machinery to the location.
Height And Safety
One of the key concerns for a scaffolding contractor is the maintenance of sufficient safety levels for its staff – and the height of the required scaffolding is a factor in this. Different scaffolding heights can also affect what type of inspections and protocol is needed to comply with regulations. The height of the project also dictates what equipment and material will be required to erect the structure.
Regardless of your project’s size, type and location, if there is insufficient space to transport the materials and equipment to the place, the project will run into enormous problems immediately. From lorries to move the scaffolding, to convenient access times, you will need to provide as much information as possible to your scaffolding contractor so that they can plan accordingly.
