Every job is different, and we usually prefer to have a week’s notice for adequate planning. We can provide a rough estimation of erection time when we quote for the work. In addition, we can attend to your project immediately if it is an emergency.

Our professional scaffolding teams do everything possible to ensure that no damage is caused to the Brighton property being worked on. This includes designing a precise plan taking into account vulnerable features on the property and following a careful approach to the erection itself. Because gardens are usually soft ground, there is always the small possibility that some damage can result from heavy scaffolding erected on it. We take all possible steps to protect your garden and minimise damage to your trees, shrubs and lawns. But if you have any concerns, please discuss them with us before we begin work on your property. Please keep in mind that we are not responsible for any damage caused to your property by workers using our scaffolding.

You might be surprised to learn that scaffolding is highly flexible and adaptable – it simply requires an experienced scaffolder who knows the products and can manipulate them to provide the best results. We can erect scaffolding to suit incredibly complex areas using a variety of methods. Sometimes, this can mean making use of additional pieces and fittings to access the desired area. For strangely shaped buildings, we’ll simply make allowances in our plans taking the unique design of your property into consideration.

The most popular materials used for scaffolding are aluminium and steel. Because of its durability, aluminium is more expensive but is the best choice if your scaffolding is going to be in use for a long period of time. We therefore recommend this material for larger or more time-consuming projects. On the other hand, steel is the material of choice for customers who only require scaffolding for a short amount of time.

It’s necessary to inspect all working platforms and edge protection before each use and after significant alterations as the strength and security of the scaffold can become compromised. Your scaffold should also be checked after adverse weather conditions such as heavy snow, rain and strong winds for the same reason. Regular checking once a week is recommended to ensure that the scaffold is still safe for use. You can be sure that at Ace Scaffolding, we thoroughly and regularly inspect all our scaffolding.

According to our terms and conditions, removing or altering the scaffold must be performed by an Ace Scaffolding operative. This is to ensure that the project is safely carried out by our qualified staff and is covered by our insurance. Any alterations made by unqualified personnel could make the structure unsafe and result in someone being badly injured or worse. Should you need any aspect of your scaffold adjusted for any reason, give us a call. We pride ourselves on great customer service and as we’re based in Brighton, we can quickly reach your property to make the necessary changes. Afterwards, we’ll inspect the scaffold to ensure it is still safe for use and you can continue with your building or renovation.

When it comes to our scaffold erection in Brighton, safety is our number one priority. No matter how big or how small the job we’re working on may be, we maintain a strict health and safety policy and environmental policy with all our operations. This means we can offer you HSE compliant service that is professional and efficient, whilst ensuring that your site is as safe as possible for the tradesmen you’ve hired to work on your project. Your scaffold erection and dismantling will only be handled by members of our own qualified and highly experienced team. We also offer ongoing supervision and inspections and with Ace Scaffolding, you can rest assured that your site and contractors are well taken care of.

It’s never a good idea to do so. At Ace Scaffolding, we would advise you to use qualified and experienced scaffolding specialists instead of attempting to erect your own scaffolding. There are so many dangers involved when working at height and only an expert with the required training can safely assess such risks and provide effective scaffolding. Using a professional scaffolding contractor such as Ace Scaffolding is also recommended because we are fully insured with employer, public and product liability insurance, as well as professional indemnity.

In the majority of cases, you don’t need a permit. However, you may require a permit if your scaffolding is going to be erected on a public right of way, such as a pavement or a footpath. As your scaffolding contractor, we will first find out whether you need a permit and put in the application for you, ensuring the necessary permit is available before any work commences.

Yes. Uneven or sloping grounds around Brighton rarely prevent our experienced scaffold experts from erecting a sturdy structure. We can provide scaffolding with adjustable components to tackle all bumps and lumps in the ground. We’ll take steps to ensure that the scaffold doesn’t get destabilised by uneven ground. If necessary, we can also create an even surface to work on by securing a large baseplate at ground level. This is why it’s a good idea to have scaffold erection by professionals. If you have any concerns about the ground where you need to erect scaffolding, just contact us to discuss this.

It’s important to use the correct scaffolding for any project and usually, it is to your advantage when this decision is left to the experts. At Ace Scaffolding, we are happy to guide you on the best kind of scaffolding you need for the work you’re undertaking on your property.

Since scaffolding has a more stable triangular or square base and is placed flush to the floor, it is much safer for use than ladders. Unlike scaffolding, ladders are propped up against the wall or buildings and aren’t as safe or reliable. In addition, scaffolding provides more space to work from rather than a narrow step on a ladder. To ensure safety with ladders, another person is often needed to hold them in place which is not required with scaffolding so that more work can be accomplished in a shorter period of time.

The operative in charge of the direct supervision of the working foreman, leading hand and other members of a scaffolding gang must meet the minimum requirement of CISRS Scaffolder grade. Supervision of more complex scaffold structures required a CISRS Advanced Scaffolder qualification. In addition, the supervision of a scaffolding site or project including deploying operatives, H&S issues, liaising with client, inspecting, and so on, must be carried out by a competent person. However, the individual may not be required to hold a CISRS qualification.

According to law, individual operatives are required to be competent and highly efficient in the erection, alteration and dismantling of scaffolding. The easiest way to ensure that a scaffolder is competent is to request their Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) Card. Ability to provide a CISRS card proves the holder as a competent part of a scaffolding gang in charge of scaffolding erection, dismantling or alteration. Our scaffolders at Ace Scaffolding are used to working across a range of different domestic and commercial projects and can provide a valid CISRS card upon request.

If the scaffold has a working platform height of 4 metres or less, it can be erected by any physically sound and capable person. However, with scaffolds measuring above 4 metres in height, the person erecting it must be qualified and have a certificate of competency. At least 2 people are required to safely erect a scaffold up to a height of 6 metres, while a larger crew size is required to erect a scaffold above 6 metres.

There are some serious and life-threatening safety risks involved in scaffold erection. Even whilst following required rules, workers can experience falls, scaffolding tip-overs, or be struck by falling objects. Some risks associated with scaffold erection also occur due to platforms that have been overloaded beyond recommended capacity and poorly supported work platforms. These scaffolding accidents during erection and dismantling can be avoided or minimised by following required regulations such as using personal protective equipment, ensuring proper footing of scaffolds and use of scaffolding inspection tags at the various scaffold access points.

Safety risks during scaffold erection can be minimised with proper scaffold inspection and training. These issues can be identified during inspection and fixed to reduce the risk of falling from the structure and other dangers such as unsound or insufficient bracings and points of access to the building being incorrectly or inadequately secured to the scaffolding. Another necessary level of risk prevention is to have a qualified person available to provide inspections and supervise work. They can use scaffolding tags to mark faulty scaffolding as unsafe for use, and block them off until the issues have been fixed.

Our scaffold erection is available for domestic, commercial and industrial properties. Whether you’re a local council in need of scaffolding for a big project, a contractor or a homeowner in need of scaffolding for a home maintenance project, we can provide you with scaffold erection in Brighton tailored to your needs. We specialise in providing edge protection, alloy towers and access scaffolding and if necessary, our team can also design customised scaffold systems to help reach difficult places.
