SCAFFOLDING BEST PRACTICE #23: Don’t let the accountants become scaffold designers!
Charging out industrial access scaffolds BY THE CUBE encouraged builds that were more “airy” with bigger spans and increased sail and surface areas. Then, a move to accounting for scaffolds BY THE POUND has encouraged a tendency toward overbuild and increasing operational risk. Now, a move toward charging BY THE LEG is creating its own operational challenges, very different from the other practices. The solution is simple: BUILD THE RIGHT SCAFFOLD! The most profitable scaffold you can build is one that gets you a repeat customer. Strength. Stability. Safety.
