J.Mac Scaffolding

Our Approach


At J Mac Scaffolding we understand that our Yard and Logistics are a fundamental factor in the success of any scaffolding company.

Being able to transport our materials to and from sites safely requires stringent procedures and management and is just as important to get correct as the Scaffolding itself. One of the Key Success factors is the Transport and Yard Teams co-ordination with the Operations Team on daily basis.

At J Mac we have a mixed fleet of HGV’s including Hiab, Hook Loaders, flatbed and small vans.

Materials are a fundamental part of any scaffold and at J Mac we understand that only by using the best scaffolding materials we can invest in long term Quality and the long-term Safety of our clients.

J Mac Scaffolding Specialises in Traditional tubes and fittings this type of materials can offer a cost advantage for certain projects, however we can also provide specialist Systemised tube and fitting systems using Structural transom units, and various system scaffolding products such as Layher, Haki & Plettac Metrix. System Scaffolding can offer an advantage where the type of scaffolding required needs to be erected and dismantled in a short period of time due to time constraints. System Scaffolding also offers a higher load capacity than basic configuration scaffolding built using traditional tubes and fittings to TG20.


At J Mac Scaffolding we encompass the Use of the NASC TG20 E-Guide to provide all clients with either a Compliance sheet showing that the Scaffolding erected complies with TG20 or a bespoke Scaffolding design with supporting Calculations, Designs are identified at Tender / Surveying stage for each project. J Mac Scaffolding has created relationships with a range of Design Engineers whom support the Team on a daily basis.

‘It is a requirement of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 that unless a scaffold is assembled to a recognised standard configuration, e.g. NASC Technical Guidance TG20 for tube and fitting scaffolds or similar guidance from manufacturers of system scaffolds, the scaffold should be designed by bespoke calculation, by a competent person (Scaffolding Design Engineer) , to ensure it will have adequate strength, rigidity and stability while it is erected, used and dismantled.’

SMART Scaffolder

J Mac Scaffolding use Smart Scaffolder CADS software, this software allows the engineers and Scaffolding Management Team to produce scaffolding designs, Quotations, Material Load Lists and test the Designs to Current TG:20 Legislation as per the Requirements of the Working at Height Regulations 2005.

All Scaffolding Projects are planned and Co ordinated in line with Industry Scaffolding Guidance notes and Technical Guidance Notes, J Mac’s ability to create 3D Visual Models of a Scaffolding structure Prior to Works starting on site is part of the requirements laid out in the Construction Design Management (CDM) regulations with particular emphasis on the pre planning of construction related works.

Knowing that everything we produce is compliant to industry standards isn’t just for peace of mind, it can realistically prevent disaster and save lives.

Following the rendering and testing of the 3D design, we produce 2D working drawings. These demonstrate the plans and elevations of every aspect of the project, including loading bays, staircases, birdcages and internal walls. By seeing how everything fits together and works in unison, under different circumstances and during a range of scenarios, you benefit from the confidence of knowing that you’re receiving a bespoke system.
