We work closely with our clients from design to installation

  • NSS scaffold systems and services are tailor-made for the client's need. A typical access contract involves a number of specialist phases, all handled in-house.
  • First, our engineer conceives a solution to the problem, followed by a preliminary design to check feasibility.
  • At this stage we normally erect a test scaffolding rig in our engineering workshops for clients to evaluate.
  • Structural aluminium, with a pre-fabricated panel, forms the heart of our special access scaffold systems, accounting for around 95% of the equipment.
  • The remainder is the adaptive part, manufactured in our workshops on an individual contract basis.
  • Our clients are provided with comprehensive costing and project management information, and consulted throughout the contract.

We have an uncompromising commitment to efficiency and workplace safety

  • We operate to high standards of efficiency and productivity, saving clients' time and money.
  • Over the years, we have developed safety policies which are rigorously applied.
  • Our scaffold teams include highly experienced scaffolders, managed by senior foremen and supervisors.
  • All scaffolding is designed and erected to international standards.
