The second International Scaffolding Championship (ISC) is scheduled to take place in April this year. The competition, organised by the Baltic Scaffolding Association (BSA), will now happen annually, following the unprecedented success of the first ever ISC event last year.
System scaffolders from all over Europe are preparing to take part in ISC 2020, competing against one another in a closely-monitored challenge. Though exact details of this year's challenge are yet to be revealed, it is thought that it will be similar to ISC 2019, in which teams had to safely erect and then dismantle a specially-designed freestanding scaffold structure. The nine competing teams (representing Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia) were up against the clock, with just two hours to complete the challenge before industry experts judged the results.
At ISC 2019, Lithuanian company HOTREMA took the coveted first place award, closely followed by Estonia's Adelante Tellingud in second place and Poland's ARAD in third. Commenting on ISC 2019, BSA's head of Training Žaneta Baltreniene said: "The championships were a big challenge: to have nine teams from five different neighbouring countries and to make everything run smoothly was not easy. We are proud to host such an event for the first time in Baltic states.”
Registration for ISC 2020 is now open to any six-person team with knowledge and experience of using the Layher Allround System. The event will take place on April 24th 2020 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
