Scaffold specialist to deliver first project for housebuilder in Midlothian

JR Scaffold Services has marked the start of a new partnership with housebuilder Dandara East Scotland on a Midlothian development.

In its first job for the firm, JR Scaffold Services – a division of The JR Group – will deliver scaffolding services for the affordable homes part of Dandara’s Shawfair development.

Sitting alongside the development’s 38 private homes, the 18 affordable apartments will be housed within two three-storey blocks.

John Horne, MD of JR Scaffold Services, said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to be embarking on a new project with the team at Dandara East Scotland. A major part of our ethos is partnership working and, based on our early conversations with the Dandara team, we can see a long-term future working together.

“Scaffolding is a key division of The JR Group and is the foundation on which the business was built, so we’re keen to bring this expertise to the Shawfair development and to play a key role in facilitating the provision of affordable homes on behalf of Dandara. We hope this will be the first of many projects to come.”

Stuart Dallas, contracts manager at Dandara, added, “We are delighted to have JR Scaffolding Services – on board for its first development with Dandara, and look forward to working together now and in the future.”
