I first saw the quick rig aluminium and steel scaffolding being used here three years ago. Far better option than 3x3 and washing line.

Dusak you should see the performance we now have to go through just to put up the ordinary sectional tower scaffolding, even worse is building scaffolding which has to have a certificate once it is erected, if you wish to remove say a single tube in order to get at something, then the whole thing has to be certified all over again.
Nice to see you back posting, I miss hearing about the cats. ;)

All my team at the Uni had to go on scaffolding certification courses. Best bit was once certified they had a duty of care if they saw another scaffold that was not safe. They could red tag it and make the builders reassemble it until they were satisfied.
Caused no end of mayhem when outside contractors were on site during the Summer vacation. Many had not done the certification courses as required by the new laws.

I've noticed where I live, they will stick up scaffolding up to three stories high, leave it there for upto three months, each week some one comes along to inspect the condition, then finally the required work is done in one day,........who pays for all this ? Us clowns who live here on our service charges,.....can not wait to sell this joint. :wi .

Thats correct A4, normally scaffolding the client pays to have it errected and pays a rental on it for while ever it is required, the client then pays to have it taken down. By law the scaffold has to be inspected periodically and a SCAFTAG is put on it to say it is safe to use. All SCATAGS have to be signed and if the inspector finds it to be unsafe he will turn the SCAFTAG inside out to the Red Section telling people the scaffold is unusable. Anyone caught using U/S Scaffold gets fired.

Pardon me if I’ve missed the point but surely if you’ve erected scaffolding on your property you are responsible for paying for it!

And if it’s in erected by your landlord or the owner of your freehold (if you have a leasehold property) in order to carry out repairs or maintenance, then you would expect to find the cost reflected on your rent or service charge.

It's funny you mentioned the SCAFTAG, they have to be signed each week, that was how I was able to prove that we, the lease holders were being ripped off by the leasehold management, and that some one was on the 'back hander'.

The big problem with property in London today is that leasehold charges rise by double inflation each year, plus the so called new extras. This is the first flat I have ever owned, never again, will go back to buying a house when I leave London. Must admit I can not complain about the profit I'm making. :wi .
