About Brands Scaffolding
Brand’s Scaffolding began operations in 1982, and since then has become a well-established family business, within the North West of England’s construction industry. Our company's primary function is the erection and dismantling of safe, temporary working platforms to assist in the construction of new-build housing estates. However, we also provide access platforms for private customers to conduct general repairs and maintenance on existing properties.
As of 2017, We operate on over 20 new-build housing construction sites as subcontractors, under six of the nation’s top house building companies. We also have partnerships with smaller companies more local to the North West. We specialise in the erection of the Kwik-Stage System Scaffold. Kwik-Stage can meet all the requirements of traditional scaffolding for the work that our company undertakes, but can be erected, altered and dismantled safely in only a fraction of the time when compared to traditional scaffolding.
