    how long does the client want the scaffolding for if you don't know perhaps you ought to consider how much hire.
    lets face it I don't know how many men you intend to hit the job with you may consider weather height materials labour fuel hire.
    get the sums right here fella and go for it .

    I'm not out of my depth and wouldn't take on anything I wasn't 100% comfortable with. Especially on a job like this. Hence why when he originally enquired about it whilst we scaffolded the surrounding buildings I said no. A couple years have passed since then and we are in a fantastic position now and I feel it's time to step up.

    In terms of hire, we don't know yet, it's still in the very early stages.

    I'm hiring a house worth in September to run along side one of my housing contracts, get trained and experienced in it then invest more after that.

    Yeh it would literally be wrote in the history books of our town it's that famous a chimney, it's just so well known. I'm thinking debris netting for the added colour

    This is basically the same as the actual stack I've been asked to do.

    It's by far the biggest job I've ever been asked to do. Basically I know the guy who owns it and it's mine to do if I want it. It's 38m high, boarded top to bottom for pointing. It's actually the highest point in my home town and would basically stick it to all the local firms lol

    I've got the gear and the lads who are capable of the job. I've sent off some pictures and drawings to a designer to get the scaff design today.

    I've never worked on such a high job or priced one for that matter. I don't really know where to start to include all the handballing etc to get the gear to the top (and back down).

    Any advice welcomed!!
    Sub it out piggy it's outside your capabilities.

    Have you got an official purchase Order off "the guy you Know" to cover at least the cost of the design? If not you could have lost out before you start!
    He could get your price and say fook me and then get another which could well be a cheaper one.

    Tbh he's prob already had a quote if not ask him to get one from a bigger company- that will set your priceing structure . Defo get a hoist as the cost will outwey lost hrs getting gear up looks like 1k per lift for the first 5- then £1.5 for the rest plus hoist cost.
