Access and Containment

Contract Scaffolding
Wood Group Industrial Services Limited is an established supplier of full turnkey access and scaffolding systems. Innovative and cost effective design solutions meet the demanding access and technical requirements of a wide range of projects in the construction, marine, transport infrastructure and civil engineering sectors.

An active member of the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation's Technical Committee, we have extensive expertise in the design, supply, and installation of all forms of access, containment and enclosure systems that meet the highest safety standards as well as complying with all regulatory and environmental controls.

A wide range of systems is provided:
•    Traditional tube and fitting systems
•    System scaffolding
•    Temporary formwork/falsework and roofs
•    Lightweight and Kwikform systems
•    Bespoke access systems
•    Rope Access

The Group designs, erects, hires and dismantles temporary scaffolding structures that allow access for ongoing maintenance, inspection, periodic scheduled shutdowns, capital improvements and emergency repairs. The vast majority of scaffolding services are performed on large, complex industrial sites, ships, oil rigs, bridges and pipe networks.

The Group designs the scaffolding or temporary access works to be erected, provides skilled labour for the erection and dismantling the scaffold and inspects such structures to ensure no unauthorised adaptions have been made and the temporary works structure continues to provide a safe working platform.

Wood Group Industrial Services Limited maintains stocks of 'system' and 'tube and fitting' type scaffolds to enable a wide range of structures to be accessed in the most cost effective and safe manner. As at 31 December 2012 the Group owned scaffolding with an estimated replacement value of £8.3million. In addition to traditional scaffolding services, the Group provides other specialist work access solutions such as rope access or mobile erected work platforms.

Much of the Group's equipment is located at customer sites and it is often erected and dismantled repeatedly as a part of the ongoing maintenance of a customer's facility or as part of providing access for an engineering project
