Civil Engineering Scotland – Check It Group

Civil engineers will always rely on scaffolding for their projects. Scaffolding allows access to areas that wouldn’t be accessible, allowing labourers to work safely. Over the years we’ve been able to work with hundreds of civil engineers on projects. This is what gives us such a good reputation with civil engineers across Scotland & the UK. We make sure we prioritise level of service & health & safety with our scaffolding. We don’t want to cut corners when we’re delivering a service that can injure people if done incorrectly. Check It guarantees absolute adherence to the strictest regulations with our industrial scaffolding. For more information about our Civil Engineering Scaffolding, visit our page on Civil Engineering Scotland

Our scaffolders have had decades of experience erecting industrial scale scaffolding between them. This makes them one of the most experienced teams in the industry. From roadside scaffolding to bridges, railways, over water structures to seaside docks, our teams have handled it all. It’s this level of expertise that allows makes us a leading provider of industrial scaffolding. We want to reassure civil engineers knowing that their scaffolding is in safe, experienced and very knowledgeable hands

What types of scaffolding does a civil engineer need?

Civil engineering will often require larger scale scaffolding due to the size of the project. Civil engineering usually consists of structures that need maintenance/repair. This is why Check It Scaffolding has been a go-to provider, as we’re industrial scaffolding specialists. The repair & maintenance of large structures is a huge part of civil engineering. We work with civil engineers to make sure that they’re given the support they need with their scaffolding. From restoring motorway bridges to railways, we’re able to accommodate for it all.

Because of the scale of most civil engineering projects, industrial scaffolding usually goes hand in hand. There aren’t many other ways people are able to access such irregular structures.  Scaffolding allows labourers to access difficult to reach areas, making it much easier to work on. We’re able to produce industrial scaffolding at an exponential rate, making sure deadlines are met. We make use of 3D CAD design to create our scaffolding plans as well as coming up with quotes. This allows us to render & visualise scaffolding designs much easier compared to traditional methods. It’s this design process that allows us to work with much more precision with our scaffolding. We can to scan real site plans & create 3D versions of them. This allows us to virtually model scaffolding so that we can spot any shortcomings we might not have noticed.

Types of civil engineering scaffolding:

Even with construction, scaffolding is an invaluable asset to civil engineers. There are many ways that scaffolding is able to aid an engineer. Temporary structures are a great tool for those involved with the refurbishment of a building. There are several types of scaffolding that an engineer can use. These types are:

  1. Single scaffolding
  2. Double scaffolding
  3. Cantilever scaffolding
  4. Suspended scaffolding
  5. Trestle scaffolding
  6. Steel scaffolding
  7. Patented scaffolding

Each type has its own uses & applications. Our scaffolding designers will use these where appropriate and devise a complete scaffolding design for your project. We’ll be able to use different styles of scaffolding to come up with the best solution. With scaffolding being inherently modular, we’re able to mix & match with different styles of scaffolding to suit your site.

We’ve been working with civil engineers for 20+ years, helping to provide scaffolding for a range of different jobs. We’ve worked with many commercial & industrial sites across Scotland.

Check-It are experts in their field and can provide bespoke scaffolding to many locations. Some of the areas we services regularly are listed below:
