Other than for very small contracts most contracts of any size have a pre-contract meeting. The primary purpose of the meeting is often for the parties to clarify specific points in the enquiry and quotation. This guidance outlines items to be covered in the meeting, pitfalls and a recommended strategy.
This guidance note sets out the information that the Scaffolding Company should seek from the Employer. This information will be used by the Scaffolding Company in order to produce their Quotation and will be the basis for their offer. It is important that the Scaffolding Contractor obtains as much information about the Project as possible prior to firming up their price in order to reduce the risk they are exposed to.
The purpose of this guidance note is to bring together, in one document, some of the more common qualifications used by members.

A licence is required in order to erect a scaffold on or above the public highway. The licence is issued under section 169 of the Highways Act 1980, generally by the highway authority responsible for the particular stretch of highway. This guidance indicates the type of information that may be required.
This guidance explains the differences between ‘supplementary’ and ‘check’ couplers and gives typical design applications where high coupler forces could be expected and where additional loadbearing capacity to connections may be required. It also contains guidance on coupler configurations and expected safe working loads (SWLs) where supplementary couplers are used. To ensure that SWL values are as accurate as possible, data provided within this document is based on practical testing rather than calculation.
BS2482:2009 defines both visual and machine strength grading standards for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.2m spans and 63mm x 225mm boards supported at 2.5m spans; and machine strength grading standards only for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.5m spans. This guidance is reviewed on the basis of removing A grade boards that should not exist. A visually graded board is still a BS2482 product and should be marked as such on the end band.
This guidance note is concerned with advice for the safe erection, use and dismantling of temporary suspended chutes intended for the conveyance of waste construction materials.
