About Us

C&W Scaffolding was started in 1980 by my late father who at the time was scaffolding in Fawley Oil Finery and the rigs in Scotland back then there was only less than a handful of scaffold firms operating in Southampton.

My dad at the time started doing little jobs outside of working in Fawley doing evening and weekend soon saw a demand for good reliable scaffold firm to operate in Southampton.

At this time he and a friend decided to start C&W scaffolding. Within a couple of years he bought out his partner and went it alone. By the late 80’s C&W Scaffolding became one of the biggest scaffold firms to operating out of Southampton and by now covering most of Hampshire and even going as far as London. At this time I was still at school but ever minute I had spare I went to work along side my dad.

However, by the early 90’s he took on a contract to do a biggish block of flats in Bournemouth which after the clients company went bankrupt nearly took us to the wall.

We went back to our roots small domestic and light industrial work, this in turn in our opinion makes us feel to you the customer a more personal service.

Family run with family values we understand out clients and customers needs. Allowing you to be able to put your trust in us, knowing you have made the right decision. By 24 I was pretty much running the business with a little help and input from my father. Sadly he passed away in 2008 and I made the decision to carry the family business keeping my mother on board with still the same family values and putting you our customers at easy knowing that you have made the correct decision by choosing C&W Scaffolding.

Today after some 35 years we feel we must be doing something. Having many repeat customers C&W Scaffolding are extremely proud of our 100% safety record with not a single accident or damage to property and aim to continue this.
