About Us

DH Scaffold Services Ltd was established in May 2011 on the back of some 21 years in the engineering sector beginning with civil and structural engineering, branching off into the design of scaffolding structures some 18 years ago. Based from our Head Office in Sheffield, we are ideally placed to reach all corners of the UK within a few hours.

DH Scaffold Services Ltd understand that the cost of a design is something which may be overlooked and therefore before we commit to producing a design drawing, we provide a free quotation service which details the project in question so the design cost is agreed between ourselves and you, our customer. We can also assist with advice, guidance and any technical issues at no cost to you.

We also have full Professional Indemnity Insurance along with Public Liability Insurance, copies of certificates are available upon request.

Managing Director

Background

In May 2011, I established DH Scaffold Services Ltd following a long career in engineering since leaving school (long and distant memory school…!). I was involved in designing structural concrete, structural steelwork then moved across into scaffold design in 1999.

Why I Love What I Do

Every day provides me with new challenges with each and every project having different problems which need to be tackled using different methods.

Interests outside work

I take our dog, Teddy, for walks most evenings and also like to fit in a jog now and again when I get time. I also like a few beers on the weekend, then again, who doesn’t…!!

Favourite drink

A simple pint of lager is all I ask for with the occasional southern comfort and coke. I used to drink snakebites many years ago but if I sniffed one of those these days, id be on my back..!

I like the big ‘Chelsea taxis’ like Range Rover Sports, Audi Q7’s and Porsche Cayenne Turbo’s.. I don’t want to pollute the atmosphere but I love em…!
