Intricate planning for flexible high rise scaffolding solutions

With high rise scaffolding, the complexity of the scaffolding is proportionate to the complexity of your build. By intricately planning your high rise scaffolding from the onset, and having a comprehensive understanding of your project, we are able to accurately and cost-effectively provide the flexible scaffolding solution you need.

We have extensive experience in a wide range of high rise scaffolding projects including office buildings, apartment towers, hotels, bridges, churches and more.

High rise scaffolding typically utilises heavy-duty steel scaffolding, to maintain structural integrity at height. These systems provide a flexible modular design that allows us to build the structure according to your precise needs.

● standards
● transoms
● ledgers
● hop up brackets
● tube and coupler
● ladders
● aluminium stairs
● stretcher stairs
● tie bars
● anchored wall ties
● containment mesh
● hoarding components
● material hoists
When we prepare your quote, we’ll ask questions about the project to recommend
the right products to keep your site safe.


We like to know as much as we can about the project, the site and planned
processes so we can prepare the right scaffolding for your needs. We will ask
● the kind of project—new building, repairs, renovation, etc
● trades access to the scaffolding (formworkers, concreters, electricians,
painters, roofers etc)
● accurate floor plans, elevations, hydraulic, mechanical and structural plans
● style and number of access points
● disability ramps
● material hoists
● accommodation for pedestrians on foot passing or accessing access in
and around the site building
● local permits
● access to site utilities and what are the planning processes involved
(cranage, forklift, manitou etc)
If you aren’t sure what you need, we can help you decide what’s best for your

It depends on the size, staging and collaboration of your project. A typical high
rise scaffolding stage takes one to two days to construct.

It depends on the complexity of the project and the timeframe available to us.
Historically, we can usually start building within 1-2 weeks of quote approval,
however we advise providing as much notice as possible.

We invoice on completion and signed handover of the planned stages, no deposit
required. After handover, you pay staged labour fees, ongoing weekly hire fees
and transportation costs until the project is complete and we commence the
dismantle stage. Other typical charges can also include planned modification and
day labour charges for works outside the planned scope of works.
