Design process

At EA Scaffolding & Systems we take design matters seriously.
We employ qualified Engineers to ensure our proposals offer unrivalled innovation, deliver best practice and accord with current legislation.

Additionally our team of highly experienced contracts managers receive specific training in design/technical issues to ensure a detailed understanding of design related project implications.

* We value engineer all proposals to ensure cost efficient solutions.

Drawings

In line with our design process protocol we prepare engineering and valuation drawings for each project.

We use a range of industry standard design/drafting software to produce solutions in 2D, 3D and animation. All our software is licensed, maintained and regularly updated to ensure publishing and distribution is seamless across our client base.

Web access drawing deposit is offered for larger projects, enabling clients to download latest project specific documents on a self serve basis at any time.

Calculations

Due to the introduction of European standards and the withdrawal of many historical and established British Standards it is now necessary to design and calculate the majority of scaffold structures. The NASC and HSE provide specific guidance on this issue.

EA Scaffolding & Systems use a range of industry standard structural analsyis software. All our software is licensed, maintained and regularly updated to ensure publishing and distribution is seamless across our client base.

Event, roofing and scaffold structures are analysed using non-linear and 2nd order theory calculations within a limit state approach. We undertake 2D and/or 3D structural analyses of all designed scaffold structures and bespoke components.

We undertake rigorous analyses to facilitate the value engineering of our proposals. Additionally, we provide to our clients detailed structural reports and load summaries, clearly indicating safe use criteria and what impacts our structure will have on the fabric of the existing building or area where it is planned.

Design Risk Assessment

EA Scaffolding & Systems Limited produce in-house design based risk assessments for key projects, although this is not a legal requirement under CDM regulations, we beleive this enables us to identify hazards and conflicts at an early stage within a project and therefore enables us to engineer projects in such as to maximise user/erector/public interaction safety and avoid costly changes at a later date.
