Factors Affecting The Cost of Scaffolding

Some people prefer buying the scaffolds for their work while others prefer renting from scaffolding renting companies. Before the start of any project, the constructor should take note of the cost of scaffolding so as to plan for a budget that is sufficient.

Following are some main factors affecting the cost of putting up the scaffolds in their construction sites:

Z

Scaffolding materials. Metal scaffolds are more expensive compared to wooden scaffolds. However, because metal scaffolds can be used many times on different sites. Metal scaffolds are cheaper in the long run, while wooden scaffolds are more expensive in the long run.

Z

If you are considering to rent scaffolding, the length of the construction period will greatly affect the cost of scaffolding. Short term projects will cost less as compared to long term projects. Project managers should also try to keep the project on time so that the cost of scaffolding is not too high.

Z

The type of scaffold will also affect the cost of scaffolding. Tower scaffolds are always attached to the side (column) of building. They are stronger than the rest hence they need more steel. This in turn reflects to more money. The design of high rise tower scaffolds is also complicated and needs an expert to do so.

Z

If the contractor has many sites, he should consider buying his own as opposed to renting.

Z

New versus used scaffold. If you are considering to rent scaffolding, used scaffolds can be cheaper than new ones. It is now depending on the work you are carrying out. If they are low level works, then opt for the used scaffolds will be fine. High rise buildings require more precise and rust-less scaffolds due to the risks involved.

Z

Size of the project. Small scale projects will not require a lot of scaffold erection, while large projects require a lot of scaffold erections. Whether the scaffold system is labour intensive, easy to erect and dismantle will be the factors to take note.

Z

Load bearing capacity of the scaffolds. Scaffolds that can handle more workers are more expensive as compared to those that can carry fewer loads. Before buying or renting a scaffold, please consider how much load it is going to carry so as to avoid scaffold collapse.

Never the less, always have some technical advice before buying or renting of scaffolds. Involve both the civil engineer and safety experts. They will be of great help on the most preferred frame sizes to purchase or rent. Make sure that you have chosen the scaffold system that best fits the construction you are carrying out or risk slowing the progress of the project and incur losses.
