Archway Services PLC


Based in the Thames Valley and founded over three decades ago, Archway Services PLC is a major force in the CONTRACT SCAFFOLDING and TEMPORARY ACCESS MARKET. Our expert scaffolding and temporary access teams can advise and support you all the way from SCAFFOLDING DESIGN through PRE-PLANNING and TENDERING to EXECUTION.

Our success is built on the delivery of the highest standards of scaffolding service by committed, fully qualified management and a conscientious, CITB certified contract scaffolding and temporary access workforce. The result is a scaffolding service you can rely on.


All Archway's traditional scaffolding and temporary access contracting equipment is manufactured to BS EN74 quality standards. Our contract scaffolding and temporary access equipment includes built-in safety and reliability; it also offers one of the most cost efficient solutions to any access, protection and support problem.


Layher System scaffold and temporary roofing systems meet fully the requirements of the British Standard BS EN 12811-1:2003 [Temporary Works Equipment - Part 1: Scaffolds - Performance Requirements and General Design], and its interpretation in the NASC guidance booklet: TG20.

Fast gaining popularity in the UK, Layher is an established German modular scaffolding system used across Europe. Its ingenious connector technology and greater rigidity have superseded conventional scaffolding. It offers cost and time effective solutions in the construction and refurbishment sector, and its advanced guardrail system provides safer erection and breakdown for scaffolders.


Using a team of experienced scaffolding specialists that adapt to the requirements of each sector quickly, Archway has completed an impressive portfolio of maintenance contracts within the food, petrochemical, defence and pharmaceutical industries.

During construction projects we fit into our clients' work programmes seamlessly. We help them achieve their targets through meticulous scaffolding planning, constructive discussion and a reliable, effective and safe performance on site.

Archway provides on-site services and packages designed to meet all project-specific and general legal requirements. For each contract or project we always ensure:

  • The employment of competent and responsible scaffolding operatives, who are overseen by experienced site supervisors working in a safety-first way
  • Implementation of reliable and affective management to achieve the main objectives of safety, quality and cost effectiveness
  • The allocation of management responsibility to ensure that all cost and time objectives are met without compromising safety


More and more organisations require scaffolding designs. To ensure that our clients' scaffolding design criteria are met, and that the scaffolding design is not compromised in the construction phase, we provide a team of scaffolding design professionals.

Our scaffolding design teams use the latest CAD TECHNOLOGY that complies with both BS5973 and BS EN 12811-1:2003 scaffolding design standards. We offer scaffolding design solutions and proven engineered concepts that ensure optimum PROFITABILITY for our client. We also provide advice on potential cost or TIME SAVING OPPORTUNITIES.


On-site Assessment and Training (OSAT) helps experienced scaffolding and temporary access workers get the qualifications required to prove they can do the job. It turns their existing skills and scaffolding experience into a NATIONALLY RECOGNISED qualification such as an NVQ or SVQ.

Training courses all the way from BASIC SCAFFOLDING through to ADVANCED SCAFFOLDING level with an NVQ attached are available through the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) and approved training centres
