Abstract
Scaffolds are temporary structures that are built to support workers and materials and facilitate direct work on construction sites. A considerable amount of man power resources are consumed by industrial construction scaffolding, which makes effective planning and estimation of the same very critical to the project. The present research attempts to analyze affecting factors for different stages of estimation and concepts in advance planning of industrial scaffolding, and presents useful observations and recommendations. A simulation tool for predicting scaffold erection man-hour values for individual equipment on site in an industrial project was developed in Simphony 4.0 and is based on mapping the geometry of equipment and other factors to man-hours of scaffold work. The stages and methods of estimation, their uses and an efficient scaffold flow process for industrial construction lays a solid foundation of new concepts and analysis in industrial scaffolding research work.
