This updated version includes amended schedules of Rates taken from the NASC's recently updated guidance note CG11:17 Preparation of Schedules of Rates and updated references to TG20 Good Practice Guidance for Tube and Fitting Scaffolding.
The document was originally developed by the NASC (National Access & Scaffolding Confederation) in conjunction with the CLG (Contractors Legal Group), which is the umbrella group for main contractors, and was first published by CIP in 2014.
It is set out as a form of contract for the erection, hire and dismantling of scaffolding, and is considered appropriate for use by contractors working in construction.
The 2018 version includes amended Schedules of Rates tables taken from the NASC’s recently updated guidance note CG11:17 Preparation of Schedules of Rates, and the opportunity has also been taken to update references to TG20 Good Practice Guidance for Tube and Fitting Scaffolding.
The contract is gaining traction with contractors in the construction industry who are increasingly recognising it as a default document when agreeing terms and conditions with scaffolding contractors. It provides an alternative to the long and complicated contracts produced by some professional bodies. Anyone commissioning scaffolding works will find the Scaffolding Contract a welcome whether being used on small jobs or larger projects.
The document also includes conditions covering items such as the scaffolding contractor and the main contractor’s responsibilities. It deals with the period of hire required for the scaffolding, dates of commencement and dismantling of the scaffold, costs for any extra hire, health and safety considerations, instructions for any changes to the scaffolding structure and the basis for pricing those changes, payment to the scaffolding contractor and ending the contract. In addition there is an agreement to have any disputes decided by an adjudicator as well as the right to go to court. It clearly list each parties rights and responsibilities and is in an easy to follow format.
