Scaffolding is most often used for creating a working platform for either building or maintaining structures, but because it is so adaptable, it can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

* Maintaining the exterior of an existing structure eg. painting. * Providing working platforms for workers building a structure. * Stair towers for access to other raised platforms such as flat roofs. * Suspended platforms, cradles or hanging platforms eg. for bridge maintenance. * Platforms on uneven ground for stages or marquees. * Stabilising or shoring a structure or tall object to keep it vertical. * Temporary roofs. * Temporary walkways. * Temporary bridges. * Temporary buildings eg. storage sheds. * River bank or lake-side reinforcement. * Ramps. * Sign-boards frames and advertising hoardings. * Bracing structural props. * Racking and storage bays. * Hand-rails and edge protection. * Masts for aeriels. * Stage sets for television, film and theatre.
