Mark has over 32 years of experience in contract scaffolding. Working as a scaffolder and gaining his advanced ticket through the 1980’s and 1990’s before forming his own contracting business M&M in 1995.

Most people within the industry however will know Mark from the many successful years leading Tiger Scaffolding in the North East, a company with a strong reputation for delivering complex structures in a safe and efficient way, time and again for their clients. 

Following the announcement 48.3 Managing Director, Ben Beaumont spoke to Scaffmag, he said: “I have personally known Mark for over 15 years, and we have worked together in various forms during that time, mostly as design engineers for Tiger. We have delivered some challenging and complex scaffolds and built a great working relationship. 

We all know how important buildability is to scaffold design and at 48.3 we’ve always employed and trained ex-scaffolders to work in our design teams. Bringing Mark into the business is fantastic for us and continues that successful strategy. He has seamlessly integrated with our design team and is providing additional practical, commercial and H&S related expertise across our projects.”

48.3 have a vision for delivering scaffolding and access design that is unique. We believe in a fully integrated solution that considers both the scaffold, the surrounding interfaces, temporary works and the permanent structure in harmony. This engineers value into every project and ensures a solution that is right for the project for its full life cycle.”

Ben also added: “This is the future of scaffold design, that we are delivering for our clients today. Mark will be helping us deliver this whilst also providing tender support, developing access strategies, project and commercial management services and site support to our clients.

We are all really excited about Mark joining and are looking forward to getting started on upcoming projects where we can fully engage his experience and expertise.”

Scaffmag has exclusively discussed the move with Mark, a long term supporter of the website and magazine, he told us: “When I was asked to join 48.3 & Richter I was really excited to become a valued member of a dynamic team of engineers. Their creative vision, ethos and management structure made this a perfect move.

I am looking forward to the challenges this role will bring and having the opportunity to utilise my experience in this way, whilst developing my own technical knowledge and skillset.”

48.3 have established offices in Redhill, Leeds, Gateshead and Glasgow as well as recently opening in Birmingham, Marlow and Exeter to cater for growing demand and to deliver their services to new and existing clients in those regions.
