The purpose of this guidance note is to bring together, in one document, some of the more common qualifications used by members.

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.
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.
