Excellent planning and commitment
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf ADSL to complement you and your team for the exceptional way you undertook your recent works at the CATT Building. This was always going to be a challenging project from the outset due to the Buildings critical nature and the time frame you where required to undertake your works. But with excellent planning and commitment from all of your team you achieved, what many thought was an impossible task, with professionalism and a strong Health and Safety ethos. Please pass my comments on to all your team members, they deserve it. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future , hopefully on a less challenging project.

I could not fault the work your scaffolders did
I would like to say what a good job your two scaffolders did for me yesterday, very professional, polite and considerate of my needs.
As a civil engineer with many years experience on construction sites and having erected scaffolding myself, albeit many years ago, I could not fault the work your scaffolders did. Please pass my appreciated on to your men.
Very professional and courteous
I would like to pass on my gratitude to the two operatives that visited the site today, they were very professional and courteous and did a thorough job...Keep up the good work.
Bell Group UK were awarded the external refurbishment of Parkstone house, the building is used to house NHS staff working within the local hospital.
As part of the refurbishment works a full design scaffold was required to enable the refurbishment works to be undertaken.
Throughout the planning, implementation, and erection of the scaffolding a collaborative approach by both Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd & Bell Group UK has been required to ensure that the project is undertaken and completed by the client’s specified time frame. This has been essential due to the short frame of time to complete the works, along with sensitive nature of the building and restricted site space.
Due to an NHS library being adjacent to the building and under the working area a complex and ground breaking scaffolding system was required which is where Darren from Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd really stepped in an showed his industry time served knowledge & ingenuity to get to a point where the cantilever scaffolding could be erected.
It wasn’t an easy route to get to the point of erecting the cantilever scaffolding due to the lack of structural information provided by our client, this very much put us on the back foot as we did not know the sheer loadings to allow for the cantilever scaffolding to be installed. Despite several options being discussed between Bell Group UK & Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd, it was concluded that the cantilever scaffolding was the most practical and time efficient way forward.
As said above this is where Darren of Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd really came into his element co-ordinating between all parties involved from Bell Group UK through till the elected structural engineer ensuring that information and data was regularly communicated which allow Bell Group UK to keep our client in the loop and ensure that that they were happy with the installation of the scaffolding.
As a representative of Bell Group UK I can say from my personal experience It has been an absolute pleasure to work so closely and collaboratively with Darren & Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd on one of the most challenging project’s the Bell Group UK Wessex Branch have under taken.
I would certainly recommend and use Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd for future projects.
Whilst visiting the Churchill Shopping Centre in Brighton this afternoon, I noticed two scaffolding firms working near to one another.
The nearest scaffolding firms’ operatives were not working to recognised industries SG4 Preventing falls in the Scaffolding Industry, they had no safety gear, and no trade name was visible on their vehicle. However, a mere 50 yards away was Ideal Scaffolding showing the NASC logo on their truck. Both operatives were wearing the full safety gear that included the harness, which was being used by the scaffolding operative while working at height, as per the SG4 Preventing falls in the Scaffolding Industry. Both operatives were polite and a credit to the business and the scaffolding industry.
Parkstone House - 2022
As the main Contractor our task was the refurbishment of Parkstone House, a building used to house NHS staff working within the local hospital. It was always going to be challenging project due to the short frame time for completion of all works, along with sensitive nature of the building and restricted site space. The biggest challenge faced were two elevations above the flat fragile roofs of the hospital library, where initially the only solution available was to break through the library roof, erect towers internally, then span with beams and scaffold to full height.
After speaking to several scaffolding company's, we engaged with Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd who came up with a unique solution to bolt all the scaffolding to both elevations without disturbing the library roof. They were open and explained it hadn't been tried before, but subject to testing they gave us the confidence to push ahead with their proposal.
After both direct communication between Bell Group, Ideal Scaffolding (Southern) Ltd, Optima Design and JDL Consultants, the testing was carried out, the design approved, and the build commenced.
The scaffolding is now complete, and the refurbishment works well underway and although a little apprehensive at 1st, the finished product is quite incredible and will allow us to hit project on time and on budget as well as keeping the library fully operational during the works.
It has been a very good experience working with Ideal and we look forward to working together on future projects, although probably less challenging.
