In Maryland, the Department of Natural Resources has identified the state’s green infrastructure. These are undeveloped lands that are critical to the preservation of diverse plant and animal populations. When choosing scaffolding in Maryland for construction projects near these areas, contractors should consult with experts to address the engineering challenges that come with efforts to preserve the land.

With a scaffolding engineer’s help, contractors don’t have to worry about field analysis, scaffold design, and proper erection. During consultation, engineers will have to assess and identify the hazards and challenges present in the construction site. Doing so will also help them ensure that the construction project has no or little impact to plant and animal life in the area.

Aside from complying with the Maryland’s preservation standards, ensuring that the natural landscape of an area is preserved during a construction project also paves the way for better natural and urban environment integration, which can add value to the finished project.
