New York, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2016
Michael "Terry" Marks, with his many years of experience with scaffolding, has completed his new book “Scaffolding - the Handbook for Estimating and Product Knowledge”: a rich informational book on the matter of scaffolding, for any person needing to gain better product knowledge on all types of built-up scaffolding equipment and detailed information on how to calculate cost estimates for proposal and design.
The author, Michael “Terry” Marks, started out in London, England, in 1967 as a scaffolding laborer/apprentice, where he became a charge-hand scaffolder and steeplejack. The author moved to San Francisco in 1973 and has worked in the scaffolding and steeple jacking business as a scaffolder, scaffolding foreman, supervisor, manager, vice president, and owner in the USA until this day. The author has trained many scaffolders, foremen, supervisors, engineers, sales staff, and managers, and it was one of the author’s ambitions to write this book to pass on the knowledge that is contained here.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Michael "Terry" Marks’s astute work provides extensive information on the subject of scaffolding, with emphasis on product knowledge and how to estimate the resources necessary for construction.
This book serves as a guide to any person involved with scaffolding in any way so that they will have a training and reference book that they can refer to for both scaffolding product knowledge and for estimating. The first ten chapters of this book include historical data and background information including product knowledge on all types of built-up scaffolding, suspended cradles, and swing-stages. The eleventh chapter and fourteen sub-chapters of this book are dedicated to the procedures that are used for estimating; preparing proposals, bids, and contracts, including systematic instructions on how to calculate the formulas that are most commonly used for estimating materials and labour outputs for scaffolding. Additionally, there are several sections of this book dedicated to temporary enclosures, built-up shoring and false work, as well as manual and motorized suspended swingstages and cradles.
Readers who wish to experience this instructional work can purchase “Scaffolding - the Handbook for Estimating and Product Knowledge” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
