After two years of postponements due to the Covid pandemic and travel restrictions organisers of the International Scaffolding Championships have officially announced the new date for the event.

Registration is now open for the championships that are set to take place on 1st April 2022 in Vilnius, Lithuania. The free registration is open to any teams with six persons who have the skills and knowledge of the Layher Allround System. To register please visit scaffchamp.com.

Scaffmag covered the successful event organised by the Baltic Scaffolding Association (BSA) in 2019. The event saw nine teams participated from five countries, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia. Each team had to safely erect and dismantle a designed freestanding scaffold within two hours. The teams were against the clock and the scrutiny of industry expert referees.

Lithuania based firm HOTREMA took first place in 2019, while Adelante Tellingud from Estonia was placed 2nd with Poland’s ARAD bagging a 3rd place spot.

Speaking after the 2019 Scaffolding Championships, Žaneta Baltreniene Head of Training at the BSA 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.”
