Safety Decking installed
JMSS were contacted by Avant Homes in Feb 2017 in preparation for the start of their new build site ‘Newton Wood’ in Guisborough. At the time, Avant were preparing to make the transition from fall bags to a safety decking system – a change which was necessitated by the HSE.
Avant Homes decided to proceed with our Macdeck system, using our supply and fit service. Using this service means we take care of the whole process for Avant Homes, we take the required materials to site, erect the Macdeck platform and return to site to dismantle on an agreed date. Our supervisors attend site on a weekly basis to ensure the quality, safety and timekeeping of our operatives work.
We’re still working with Avant Homes, planning how we can assist with our products on future phases and developments. They’re a great company to add to our portfolio and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the future.
“I’ve known JMAC as a scaffolding company for years, so when we were looking for a new safety solution – they were the obvious choice. The Macdeck system as exactly what we were looking for as a health and safety necessity for our staff and the team here were very pleased with the introduction of this product to our site. We have a good working relationship with JMAC, the delivery of the products is always on time and they’re great at keeping up with our programme whilst providing a safer working environment. The JMAC products are definitely in our plans for the future and, if I had any advice for them, it would be to keep doing what they are doing as a company in terms of keeping up with the supply and demand, they have a good work ethic and are always willing to help when things get tight or we need any last minute assistance.”
