Company History


Established in 2014, City Access Scaffolding has grown rapidly, and has developed a reputation for professionalism and reliability.

Although a relatively new entrant to the city’s construction sector, our founders have over 35 years’ experience in the industrial sector, with experience ranging from erecting complex designed scaffolding to the supervision of multi-million pound projects.

Whether working on offshore oil and gas installations, industrial construction or residential scaffolding projects, the founders of the company gained a strong foundation based on quality and reliability, with a particular focus on, and respect for, health and safety.

These values form the basis of our philosophy today, and are applied to all clients and projects, from the smallest roofing repair to the most demanding large-scale commercial construction site.

Founders Jonathan Allan and Mark Skinner bring technical expertise and industry experience, while co-founder Kirsty Allan focuses on business development and building on existing client relationships.  Kirsty is the driving force in creating a positive working culture, where staff at all levels share the desire to exceed customer expectations and demonstrate their willingness to  go the extra mile at all times.

The team’s commitment to delivering quality work and exceeding client expectations has paid off, with an exceptional rate of repeat business.  We aim to work with integrity and to develop long-term relationships with partners in the construction industry.

We pride ourselves in our knowledge, expertise and commitment to Health & Safety.  These values are held throughout the team and came from our experience of working within the following sectors:
