ROUGH ESTIMATE (Residential Construction)


Set of Scaffold = Slab Area / 4.66

= 18 SQM / 4.66

= 4 sets scaffold   (H:1700mm)


Pcs of U-head  = Set of Scaffold * 4

= 4 sets scaffold * 4

= 16 pcs u-head   (H:1500mm)


Pcs of Base Jack  = Set of Scaffold * 4

= 4 sets scaffold * 4

= 16 pcs base jack   (H:400mm)


At least 2 set scaffold (with u-head & base jack) per beam length under 6m

At least 3 set shoring jack per beam length under 6m

Note: for multistory construction consider the beam weight, slab weight, dead load of form material, construction live load, etc.
