Welcome to Greenwood Scaffolding

The Leading North West Scaffolding Specialists

Greenwood Scaffolding is a Salford based company, providing access scaffolding services in the North West. Our ethos is simple – we complete our projects safely, on time, on budget. This can be evidenced by the level of repeat business we enjoy from our satisfied customers.

The company has made significant investment into the revolutionary Plettac Metrix System. The speed, flexibility, strength and inherent safety of the system enables us to safely provide completed structures in a fraction of the time normally taken, offering many benefits to our clients.

We currently directly employ around 42 operatives, all of whom hold the relevant CISRS trade card. Accreditations held include CHAS, Constructionline, SSiP and RISQS. Simian Risk Management provide additional safety advice and support.

Recent projects are as diverse as 6 number high rise tower blocks fully scaffolded for full refurbishment; external access scaffold for new build timber frame and traditional construction houses and apartments; mobile cantilever scaffold for use in aviation; a scaffold “Maze”, as part of an art exhibition; and numerous smaller scaffolds for Responsive Maintenance / Emergency Repairs. See our Gallery for project specific information.


Greenwood Scaffolding specialise in high rise tower blocks. As seen on the video link, which has featured in Construction News, we recently erected a full scaffold to a 17 storey tower block in 12 days – rather than the 12-14 weeks allowed in the programme. This speed enabled our client to commence his works sooner, and also resulted in the reduction of costs due to the shorter on-site contract period.


Metrix scaffolding is the ideal access solution for new build housing, both traditional and timber frame construction. The strength, flexibility and speed of installation means that additional lifts or adaptions can be carried out in minutes rather than hours, ensuring trades have continuity of work.




Access for building refurbishment is provided quickly and safely, enabling our customers to commence their works at the earliest opportunity, reducing the overall time scaffolding is required. Safe access is maintained for residents, and any negative impact caused by loss of light is minimised.



Many clients in the responsive and planned maintenance sector prefer the speed of Plettac Metrix which means that scaffolds can be erected quickly when works are due to take place, and quickly removed when works are completed.



Such is the attitude of Greenwood Scaffolding staff, and the versatility of Metrix, applications and uses are endless.

On Behalf of xxx Construction and the construction team working on xxx, we would like to take this opportunity to express our satisfaction with the way the operations have been managed, good communication, a positive proactive both in erecting and striking of the scaffolds. I would have no issues with appointing Greenwood again on future projects based on their performance on this project.

I’ve just been pulled to one side by a couple of residents, they wanted to let me know how helpful and pleasant the scaffolders have been with them. This is excellent feedback and they are a credit to your firm.

Good morning Michael, thanks for the works over the weekend, great work. Regards D D Managing Director.

We have a very public location here at xxx UK and needed a company that could work to a high standard and with consideration for this busy and high profile location. The pre-planning, consultation and delivery of the complex scaffolding was excellent - our thanks to GSL for a great all round service.
