Industrial Scaffolding

Industrial Scaffolding: Safe Work.
Solid Results. Every Time.

The role that scaffolding contractors play on worksites is increasingly critical to the success of that project. Whether work calls for ground-supported, structure-supported, or suspended scaffolds, the key to success is consistently safe, productive work. That type of performance is achieved only by professionals who are trained, tested, and qualified to complete scaffolding assignments safely and accurately.

We invest the time and resources to make sure our scaffolding professionals are trained to produce superior results every time. Our priority is to place only the best-trained, safest, most productive scaffolders in the industry onto a Southern District job site. Our well-trained, safety-minded scaffolders work well in the refinery, power generation, renewable energy, steel, petrochemical, civil infrastructure, industrial, and commercial construction industries.

Proven Ability Via Qualification Testing

Because of our training, our scaffolders are experts who put high value on working safely and productively. We stress teamwork, communications, technical proficiency, and more safety. We train, test, monitor, and train again. Scaffolders must complete rigorous training and then are tested to earn scaffold qualifications in:

Our Skills

Go Beyond Carpentry:

Experience. We know how to provide safe access and egress, build safe engineered structures, provide temporary facilities for work locations, and provide protection for other workers.

Expertise. We solve problems quickly by troubleshooting the issue and implementing a solution.

Flexibility. Disciplined crews are available to work non-traditional hours to keep projects on time.

Professionalism. We understand the importance of a good attitude and professional work ethic, and how to properly represent the contractor and the project owner on the job site. Our goal is to partner with project owners to solve problems and complete tasks to the customer’s satisfaction, and to address challenges that surface during a project in a manner that keeps productivity humming.

“All of the testing and certification procedures are second-nature to us. We keep our credentials current so that we are ready to go on a moment’s notice and not disrupt any schedules.” — Jason Engels
