Why use Hampshire scaffolding
Southampton Scaffold Erectors & Contractors
Southampton is a city that has been around since the Stone Age and is therefore steeped in history! It’s a popular location for tourists because of its setting amidst the beauty of the New Forest and just by the coast.
Southampton was the scene of the Roman settlement of Clausentum, an important site that was one of the last Roman towns to be abandoned. The ancient Romans would have used scaffolding to erect many of their buildings, but certainly not the type we are familiar with today! Most probably their tubes and poles would have been made from bamboo and other types of lightweight but strong material. Today’s scaffolding design really doesn’t differ that much, but it certainly is very much safer.
At Hampshire Scaffolding Ltd we don’t just supply the city of Southampton with all of its scaffolding needs, but also the surrounding towns and villages such as the areas of Maybush and Shirley with their many new builds and modern estates as well as the historical village of Ampfield with renovation projects and essential maintenance of the many ancient buildings.
As modern day scaffolders our tools may have changed but we have the same dedication and commitment to our work as the ancient Romans would have had. Only now we can offer a much wider range of services such as scaffolding supplies for sale as well as for hire, with a large variety of scaffolding for almost any jobs you can think of.
Our equipment is often seen on many building sites, helping to erect timber frames, temporary roofs and ensure the safety of workers who are busy modernising and bringing new families to cities such as Southampton. In fact safety is paramount to us and as an independent company we adhere to all the safety regulations as detailed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). As well as buying or hiring our basic scaffolding equipment we can also provide safety netting, crash decks, rubbish chutes, handrails and edge protection. For ease of access for workers we also have ramps, stages and ladders.
Scaffold Company Southampton
Industrial clients use us for their heras fencing and commercial clients have benefitted from powered access such as cherry pickers and gantry to fit advertising boards and shop signs to shop fronts. But our friendly, local team are also more than happy to hear from domestic clients who are increasingly turning to scaffolding to help with house extensions, loft conversions and conservatory builds and maintenance as we provide specialist scaffolding such as conservatory scaffolding and also indoor scaffolding like birdcages for painting and decorating.
Renovation work is made safer and easier with roof scaffold and chimney scaffold for chimney repointing and repairs and energy conscious householders who want solar panels can also buy or hire our scaffolding. Rendering, high double glazing and other external maintenance needs scaffold which will ultimately save costs as the job is finished quicker and more thoroughly than if just ladders were used.
Councils may be interested in our camera platforms which are useful for festivals or public events and because the area around Southampton is full of natural beauty, we offer full tree protection to protect our heritage for generations to come.
