What our clients think of us

  • Absolute Scaffold were contracted to erect a scaffold system which would allow safe and easy access into the archaeological excavations behind the Castletown Nautical Museum. Oxford Archaeology North were on site to reduce the ground level within the enclosed courtyard with the aim of exposing a stone slipway and allowing the historic armoured yacht "The Peggy" to be removed for much needed conservation works. Due to the complex nature of the archaeological excavations and the discovery of a dock rather than the anticipated slipway, the scaffold required frequent alteration and Absolute scaffold provided a safe and simple design each time. The work was carried out in a quick and professional manner, frequently in difficult conditions as the site floods at high tide! They were able to staff the site at extremely short notice, allowing us to keep on programme and were a very necessary part of the "Peggy Crew".
    Caroline Raynor, Site Director, Oxford Archaeology North
  • Dear Andrew

    This letter is to express my thanks for the high quality service from Absolute Scaffolding, both with regard to the way in which the scaffolding was erected and dismantled and the speed with which my request for a later modification to it was attended to.

    I shall have no hesitation in using your company again, and will recommend it to others.
    Peter Murcott
  • Absolute Scaffolding were appointed sub-contractor to Wates Retails Evergreen House Project in Douglas, Isle of Man. They were tasked to provide design, supply, erect and dismantle services for a scaffold structure for a difficult operation incorporating the removal of a defective external skin to a cavity gable wall followed by a rebuild of the wall. Absolute carried out all phases of the works tasked them and proved to be responsive, reliable, efficient and cost effective. The workmanship, subsequent supervision and inspection regime can only be described as exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending Absolute Scaffolding for undertaking scaffolding works and in the provision of a professional attitude to all aspects associated with scaffold structures.

  • Absolute Scaffolding constructed the temporary station platform at School Hill, Castletown, in a very short timeframe. They were able to provide everything that we needed, including non-slip surfacing and also managed the on-site load testing of the structure prior to it being brought into use.

    Absolute Scaffolding have also provided scaffolding for us on a number of other projects, including Ballure Bridge near Ramsey. On each occasion, their approach has been both flexible and professional.

  • The stage looked fantastic and the scaffolding really made a difference. The children were all desperate to appear on the 'bridge' and we had to re-write several scenes to include them.

    Your team did a great job and the result was perfect.
    Mr Jackson, Headteacher
  • Absolute Scaffolding Ltd were our chosen partner on a prominent Douglas, Isle of Man based project and attended to all requirements in a timely, efficient manner with due consideration of the stringent Health & Safety at Wates. Works were performed within our required timescales and all technical aspects were clarified at each stage of the works. I look forward to working with Absolute again on my next project.
    Richard Hollings, Project Manager Wates Group

    Mr Quayle, Port St Mary
  • Many thanks for the use of the scaffolding, we were very impressed with the service we received from you and when we are ready to scaffold again, Absolute will be our first choice.
    Ian Hodgkinson
  • We were delighted with the efficient and polite way they carried out the work and managed to have the area cleared before the sitting even commenced, which was down to very hard work on their behalf.

    I think it is important in this day and age to give credit where it is richly deserved and please accept our thanks for excellent service.
    Paul Dougherty, Office of the Clerk of Tynwald
  • I was most impressed with Absolute Scaffolding, both the management and the scaffolder's were very helpful and good at keeping me informed.
    Steve Willmott, Barclays
  • ...attentive, helpful and understanding staff, fast response, very reasonable...
    Jonathan, Sutcliffe Contruction
  • Just a few words of thanks to you and your team for all the help and assistance during our time at the Sita Waste Management on the Isle of Man. All the requests made of you and your team were carried out exactly to requirements and made working in some very awkward places a lot less hazardous.

    The standard of scaffolding was first class, housekeeping was excellent, coupled in with extra signage to highlight any hazards was refreshing to see. Some of the other scaffolding companies we have had to work with in the past and no doubt the near future could learn from yourselves on how to carry out scaffolding in a safe and professional manner.
    Dave Roberts, Health & Safety Advisor, AJS Contracts Ltd.
  • Thank you again for all your help during TT, in Douglas and down South.

    Your lads were really great and I wanted to let you know how much it was appreciated.
    Martin, Bushy's
