How Custom Scaffolding Engineering Powers a Profitable EPC Project

How Custom Scaffolding Engineering Powers a Profitable EPC Project

Scaffolding engineering services allow you to tailor parts to fit your unique needs. Here is a strange question, but answer it honestly:

Have you ever purchased a garment labeled “one-size-fits-all” that you truly loved? Did you get plenty of gushing compliments on how well it suited you? Were you loath to give it up when it was so worn out from use that you could not possibly wear it anymore?

The answer is no. Guaranteed. And there is good reason for that.

“One-size-fits-all” products and services are inferior to custom-designed, tailored solutions, whether you are talking about clothing, medical care, or scaffolding.

The last thing an Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) contractor with complex projects should rely on is a one-size-fits-all scaffolding solution. No two job sites are exactly alike. Every project is completely unique with a host of individual features and challenges. Trying to retrofit general scaffolding equipment to an EPC project is not only frustrating, but can ultimately cost more in the end.

Scaffolding engineering services provide optimal solutions for projects with unique requirements. Scaffolding engineering services typically include a consultation to determine project scope, 2d & 3d layout drawings based on customer requirements, PE stamped drawings and calculations (as required), material takeoff, and product manuals and user guides including technical manuals.

How Scaffolding Engineering Services Deliver Positive ROI for EPC Contractors

1. Reduces the chances for change

Trying to retrofit a general use scaffolding set-up to your unique EPC project typically results in complications like having to alter materials and purchase additional modules. reduces the chance of having to go back to your scaffolding supplier for new parts and pieces along the way.  is always appreciated.

2. Streamlines the process to stay within budget

It is much more challenging to retrofit a scaffolding system with custom accessories than ordering all of the pieces and parts needed from the start. A custom approach enables you to get scaffolding up and working quickly to eliminate wasted time, resources and, money.

What to Look for in a Successful Scaffolding Design Process

Of course, achieving an optimal EPC project arrangement through custom scaffolding design is not an overnight process. The first key is partnering with the right scaffolding manufacturer, and the second is ensuring they are involved from the initial planning stages of the project so that a solution can be both time- and cost-effective from the start.

The best scaffolding engineering processes follow this basic outline:

  1. Consultation
  2. Design a customized solution
  3. Provide initial 2d & 3d designs for review
  4. Modify designs based on review
  5. Submit drawings, calculations & material takeoff for project
