Each efficient scaffold has vertical posts or pillars in addition to horizontal planks—the mix makes the entire construction secure and safe. The scaffold rises on the identical tempo because the constructing. It’s wider on the early “tales,” offering that stable basis that permits for power and progress. It turns into much less essential because the constructing rises ever increased.

If a chunk of the constructing falls off, the scaffolding is there to catch it and make quick repairs.
