The answer on the surface is ‘every time you need to accomplish works at height. But, indeed, the question is not as plain as this. To clarify, there are various height access solutions applicable for such works:
So, the decision about what access solution to choose depends on the project you intend to undertake. For example, rope access may suit simple building maintenance tasks. However, it is unsuitable for tasks that require frequent to-and-fro moving and dealing with heavy or bulky equipment, instruments, and materials. The platforms also have their limitations.
Moreover, most of the access technologies are not a good fit for large-scale and long-term projects.
Thus, you definitely need to scaffold your building when you undertake the following projects:
In theory, one can buy a scaffolding kit and build a structure by oneself. However, there are at least three aspects to consider:
To conclude, scaffolding is essential for construction, reconstruction, and demolition projects. Moreover, unless you have a competent person in your staff, you must turn your head to a scaffolding company. At last, even if the standard configuration option fits your project, hiring a contractor may be cheaper than building it yourself.
