Access and scaffolding specialists, Turner Access, are delighted to have recently been featured on the BBC One Show to highlight the expertise of the scaffolding industry. 

The popular magazine show, presented by Matt Baker and Alex Jones, featured the Glasgow Company on a segment called: “The Maths of Scaffolding” which took a behind the scenes look at the research, planning and design that is involved when building scaffolding. 

High profile projects were discussed, such as the Niagara Falls observation tower where a freestanding 65 metre structure was built to give access for essential repairs and maintenance. 

And Turner Access Design Engineer, Stephen Sherry, explained the importance of triangular designs within this structure and others as a means of improving strength and stability. 

Also on display was the expert knowledge and experience of the entire Turner team, with the Turner Group Chairman, Gordon Turner, helping to calm One Show presenter Marty Jopson’s nerves 20 metres up on the Whitecart Viaduct in Glasgow. 

Turner Access Managing Director, Ian Wilson, said: “We were very pleased to have been approached by the BBC One Show to contribute to their scaffolding feature, showcasing the impressive feats of engineering achieved everyday by the scaffolding industry.”
