Our Expertise 

The senior staff at 48.3 come from an extensive, wide range of professional backgrounds covering all aspects of the scaffold engineering . From the most basic to the most complex scaffold engineering, our team are here to find solutions for our clients and then ensure that they are delivered to an exceptional standard. An industry leader within the UK, 48.3 offers solution-focused, exceptional scaffolding design engineering for complex projects.

The team at 48.3 are here to find solutions to your problems; to make new things possible for you and your project. the brand is built on over 100 years of experience; simplifying complex access requirements, transforming sites into safe, efficient, risk-mitigated working areas.

We have extensive experience with temporary marine works with our practice being called on for general harbour works, jetties, berthing dolphins, temporary bridge piers, and the Nab Tower project in the Solent.

If it isn't commercial, it isn't viable.

As well as the buildability of the structure, we’ll calculate the number of man hours you'll need to erect it. Erection time can make one solution commercially viable over another. It’s all part of our ethos to make a real difference, giving you greater control over your budget than ever before.

  • We deliver on TIME and can fast-track projects to deliver in ‘hours’ when needed! You decide when you need your project completed and we deliver it.


  • We save you MONEY by focusing on buildability and simplicity to make the scaffolds we design as labour efficient as possible. When it comes down to it, scaffold designs are all about buildability, the simpler we can make things, the better. Designs can look fantastic on paper, but if they don't consider how the scaffold team will erect the structure, they are useless.


  • Our designs are super-efficient, saving you MATERIALS. We check exactly what is needed and that’s all that goes in. We cut the nonsense – the over-engineered solutions and wasteful over-design – to produce efficient designs that are robust, compliant and clear.  We only use the materials you want to use; what’s in your yard at the time, what you like using, what you are familiar with, so you can deliver on your promises.
"We are the UK’s leading scaffolding design engineers, and we’d love to work with you. There’s so much we'd like to tell you, but let’s keep it simple. We transform sites into safe, efficient, risk-mitigated working areas"
