“I have used TAD on recent projects and it’s fair to say they are a breath of fresh air. Unlike many Scaffold Design organisations, TAD has a real understanding of scaffolding, allowing them to produce practical designs that are realistic and buildable. I have found them extremely easy to work with and they have represented both themselves and my company very well. I look forward to using them in the future”

Paul Smith - CEO - SHS Scaffolding Ltd

“TAD is a very well organised, professional company that have been a pleasure to work with. They have provided me with an uncomplicated service that has produced some innovative designs. As well as having designs, I have contacted TAD for advice on many occasions and found their knowledge of the rules and regulations extremely useful. I highly recommend this impressive Engineering Company."

Tom Gent - Director - Cass Hire and Sales
