Construction & Engineering Awards 2018

Build 2018 Construction & Engineering Awards 14 Best Family-Run Scaffolding Company - Northern Ireland Advanced NI Scaffolding is an established scaffolding company based in Belfast and committed to offering clients high quality solutions that meet their needs. Robert Andrews provides us with a fascinating insight into the firm and the services it offers. With the information supplied from MAC engineers we designed a bespoke scaffolding system using Layher Scaffolding to transfer the weight to ring beams due to a low loading capacity. “Advanced NI Scaffolding used the advanced versatile Layher Scaffolding system on this project due to the safety and speed that the Scaffolding can be erected whilst working to SG415 standards as set out within NASC guidance notes. The versatility of the Layher system compared to traditional tube and fitting or Kwickstage helped us to deliver the project on time and on budget. We worked closely with Layher design team to come up with a bespoke Scaffolding design to meet the individual needs of this project.” In his concluding comments Robert explores how his firm will continue to enhance its service offering over the years to come to ensure that it builds upon its current success. “Looking to the future, we are looking to grow from strength to strength over the next few years and we look to add more Layher and more clients in the civil sector. These developments offer us many exciting opportunities for further growth and success.” stablished in 2011, Advanced NI Scaffolding is a family run business and since then the firm’s portfolio of satisfied clients is ever increasing. With over 18 years of scaffolding experience, the team are committed to providing a high quality service, as Robert discusses. “Drawing on our vast industry experience, Advanced NI Scaffolding prides itself on providing the highest level of client satisfaction. We will provide the best possible solution for your project. All of our scaffolding is constructed in accordance with statutory regulations and the code of practice by trained CISRS qualified scaffolders. The teams’ overall mission is to be the safest and most reliable scaffolding company in Northern Ireland. To achieve this, we aim be the company where all scaffolders would like to work as we like to be one big family in everything we do. “At the start of every project, we always meet with the site team to assess what the process and sequence of works is to try and work out what adaptions would be needed on site before the project starts to try and keep costs for the project as tight as possible. This collaborative approach ensures success and minimises problems that may arise later in the project. Throughout the project we are very hands on and always want to help to get the project over the line as quick and efficiently as possible. We manage the sites very close so we do not let anyone down and have a designated supervisor looking after each site so the team always has that one point of contact.” To highlight the success of the firm’s client focused approach, Robert showcases one of the firm’s recent successful projects and explores how his team worked to create an outcome that met the needs of every stakeholder. “River House in Belfast is a 14-storey office building Advanced NI Scaffolding were tasked to erect scaffold to front and rear of building.
