About the Scaffolding Association

The Scaffolding Association was formed in 2013 and through its provision of effective support to companies within the scaffolding and access sector has quickly grown to over 500 member organisations across the UK. The Association supports over 13,000 individual scaffolders, this number increasing every week. The Scaffolding Association is the largest trade association supporting operators within the scaffolding and access industry.

Free initial consultations for Scaffolding Association members

Scaffolding Association members can have a free initial conversation with a specialist construction solicitor at Holmes & Hills at the point of joining the Association and at the point of renewing. This conversation provides members with the opportunity to raise any general legal concerns with a specialist solicitor.

Fixed-fee contract reviews and drafting for Scaffolding Association members

Holmes & Hills offers members fixed-fee services for the review and or drafting of contracts. Whether you are wanting to understand the legal risks you will face and commitments you will be making as part of signing a new contract, or you wish to strengthen or introduce your own terms and conditions, Holmes & Hills can advise and assist you for a fixed, preferential fee rate. Fixed-fee contract reviews are a popular service among sub-contractors who wish to limit their legal and financial risk.

Preferential and success-linked fee structures

Holmes & Hills experience of dealing with operators within the scaffolding and access industry provides them a wealth of experience successfully dealing with the issues operators are presented with. This experience allows for, where appropriate, Holmes & Hills to agree with members a success-linked fee structure whereby, for example, a member only pays a legal fee in the event Holmes & Hills is successful in recovering monies owed.

Such arrangements are considered and agreed on a case by case basis and such arrangements will always be subject to consideration of the facts available.

Access to online legal guidance documents

Holmes & Hills has worked with the Scaffolding Association to produce a range of legal guidance documents which are available to members on the Association’s website.

Additional legal guidance documents will continue to be added to the Scaffolding Association website.

Access to legal training from specialist construction solicitors

Holmes & Hills Solicitors periodically provides a range of training to Scaffolding Association members, as scheduled by the Association. Members are contacted in advance of each scheduled training session with an invitation to join online, or in person. Members can contact Holmes & Hills Construction Division at any time, to arrange additional bespoke training.
