Edinburgh scaffold business launches specialist access division

EDINBURGH-based City Access Scaffolding (CAS) has launched a new specialist access division.

Headed up by divisional director David Ritchie, the move forms part of the firm’s strategic growth plan.

Established in 2014, CAS has reported consistent strong growth and secured significant contracts, with projects including Edinburgh’s Gleneagles Townhouse, work on Scottish Government HQ at St Andrew’s House, and a Historic Environment Scotland contract to provide scaffolding services for sites across Scotland including Edinburgh Castle.

The new specialist access division has been tipped to allow the firm to undertake additional projects, covering high level maintenance, repairs and installations in addition to full scaffold services.

Performance director Kirsty Allan said, “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome David to the team and to offer our clients these additional services. It’s become increasingly important as rope access allows our team to undertake inspections, surveys, installations and even repairs for projects where full scaffold services are not required or not possible.

“As we enter our tenth year in business with continued growth and expansion into our new headquarters, we’re really excited by the potential for our new division. David has a wealth of experience in the sector and he shares our ethos of providing exceptional customer service for every project, every time. He has a strong team in place who are already delivering great results and helping the business widen our reach and maximise our potential.”

David Ritchie added, “It’s a pleasure to be part of City Access Scaffolding. I’ve known the directors for several years and have been impressed with the way they’ve built the company, and particularly with their focus on customer service while also looking after the well-being of every member of their team.

“It’s a positive place to work and it feels like a great fit. Having worked in the sector for over 15 years it’s great to have a fresh challenge and the new division means the business now offers an unrivalled range of services.”
