The 4 Crucial Roles of Scaffolding in Building Projects

scaffolding services

The scaffolding installation is one of the first steps in completing any building project or maintenance work. During the building process, it is a temporary platform that provides support and elevation and enables workers to move supplies and carry out their work; this can include but is not limited to repairs and cleaning.

Additionally, it enables workers to carry out their work during the process. It must be erected before any construction work can begin to secure the safety of the personnel maintaining or constructing the building. 

Continue reading to learn more about building projects’ four crucial scaffolding roles.

1. Provide Crucial Support During Construction Projects

Scaffolding is a vital part of the construction industry, as it offers essential support for workers. It is a temporary framework to hold up workers and building supplies during renovations or alterations to an existing structure. Most commonly, it is made from wood, metal or plastic.

Scaffolding can be seen on various buildings, ranging in size from construction projects to enormous skyscrapers. A diverse selection of scaffolding is available, each developed for a specific function.

2. Ensure the Safety of Construction Workers

During construction projects, scaffolding serve as an essential support system, assuring the employees’ safety and the structure’s continued integrity. Construction workers would risk injury from falling debris or unstable buildings if they did not have scaffolding to protect them. 

In addition, scaffolding offers a platform for workers to stand on while performing their duties, making it simpler to finish the project promptly and effectively.

3. Speed Up Construction Projects

While scaffolding are often thought of as slow and cumbersome to set up, they can help speed up construction projects. It is because they provide a safe and efficient way for workers to access the work site and move materials around. Scaffolding can also be used to create work platforms, which can be used to store materials or carry out work tasks.

In addition to being quick to set up, scaffolding are also very versatile. They can be adapted to suit the specific needs of a construction project and can be easily dismantled and moved to another location if required. 

4. Allow Access Difficult-to-Reach Areas 

For construction workers who need to access hard-to-reach regions, scaffolding are the ideal answer. Scaffolding can be moved easily. Because they offer a secure and stable platform and are simple to put together and take apart, they are perfect for use in various building projects.

It doesn’t matter what kind of scaffolding you go with; if you want your job to go well and without incident, you must always follow the manufacturer’s directions to the letter.


Scaffolding play a vital role in any construction project. They provide a safe and stable platform for workers to stand on and can be used to transport materials and equipment around the site. Scaffolding must be properly erected and maintained to ensure the safety of workers and passers-by.

Perth Major Project comes to an end for AEG

Temporary Access Perth

Over the past 2 years Access Engineering Group was engaged as the major temporary Access provider for the Clients major project in Subiaco.

From early 2020 Access Engineering Group was able to provide various types of access solutions to their clients’ major project in Subiaco. These solutions included Scaffold, Mastclimbers and Rope Access. During this time AEG was able to help their client not only reduce the time of the construction phase with their specialized Mastclimber Platforms, they also managed to do this safely and with a large saving to the client.

The project was able to test the vast majority of what AEG has to offer including:

  • Layher System Scaffold as the primary scaffold on hire
  • Specialized Aluminum Beams across the site
  • HEK Mastclimber system that was engineered and pre-assembled prior to arriving on-site and installed by our professional team
  • Pull testing on Anchors fitted on site
  • Formwork Propping
  • Rope Access works

Final Thoughts

During the time on the project, AEG was challenged many times over but AEG always rose to the challenge and helped the client and its subcontractors achieve their goals. AEG is looking forward to many more projects with their Client.

ScaffFloat System Floats in Australia


ScaffFloat has expanded overseas after launching its first scaffolding pontoon in Australia through one of its local partners, AEG Group.

Perth-based Access Engineering Group is the first scaffold firm in Australia to become an Approved Partner of the patented system that allows pontoons, barges and workboats to be built from standard scaffold components.

The firm last week launched an 8m x 4m ScaffFloat pontoon with a submerged access shelf cantilevered off the end to give bespoke access to their client who is carrying out maintenance works Barrack Street Jetty and needs access above and below the water.

Access Engineering Group offer services throughout Australia and the Pacific Rim Region, both on and offshore and has over 24 years of trading in the industry.

They approached ScaffFloat and applied to be an Approved Provider as they undertake projects in domestic and commercial construction, as well as utilities and infrastructure and could see that ScaffFloat would be of use to their clients.
