Quality & Safety First
It is company policy to take Health & Safety and the temporary structure regulations very seriously to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and the public.
All parties have a duty of care to both the public and the crews working on site. This includes the venue owner/operator, the event organiser, the marquee structure contractor and other contractors working on the same site.
Whilst we appreciate that there is always a “cheaper” contractor, we want our customers to know that our prices will reflect not only the cost of hiring or buying first class equipment but also first class safety.
Rest assured we guarantee your temporary structure is built in accordance with the highest safety standards
