Attendance for construction
Attendance is the main contractor’s mark up for specific services it has to provide for individual suppliers or sub-contractors. This might include items such as material handling, scaffolding and rubbish clearance.
Attendance can be ‘general’ or ‘special’.
- Welfare facilities.
- External scaffolding.
- Temporary power and lighting.
- Platform and passenger hoists.
- Tower crane lifts by prior arrangement.
- Site security.
- Waste disposal.
It is important to establish within the contract documents whether items that suppliers or sub-contractors require will constitute attendances that will be provided by the main contractor, or whether they will provide them themselves (such as their own specialist equipment).
