Problem Arising? Scaffold/ access issues in and to historic buildings
RIBA, October 2006
Depsite the importance of the historic fabric, the means of access can often be unspecified, undesigned and can have a significant influence on tenders. This well attended meeting was directed towards sharing good advice and gathering information on current technology, good practice, commercial management and specification.
