Our Head Office and Scaffold Yard is strategically based at a four-acre site in Bromley-by-Bow E3, with a further seven-acre storage facility in Barking, the location of which enhances our ability to service both central London and all local Boroughs through the excellent infrastructure of the local area.
With the majority of projects undertaken within a 20 mile radius, with the exception of fixed site locations and major projects, our locations in East London are key to our ability to quickly respond to clients’ needs, frequently at very short notice; they are also ideal for our clients with operations outside this area in the South East. Additionally, having key departments and all major stock requirements on-site enables us to respond quickly to any request, many on a 24hr basis for projects, which can be a mandatory requirement for some projects.
Our Hire and Sales organisation, with 6 Nationwide Depots, further enhances our ability to service our major clients’ requirements nationally in situations where a specific team may be a prerequisite.
As one of the foremost scaffolding groups in the UK, we constantly strive to always be at the forefront of OH&S Compliance, innovation, and good practice, so that we can produce an even safer working environment for our employees, our clients’ operatives and the general public.
Our large, directly employed workforce are highly skilled and enjoy the benefit of extensive ongoing training, which is reflected in our impeccable and continually improving safety record. Indeed, Lloyds of London rank us amongst the top three safest scaffolding groups in the UK.
TRAD actively encourages recruitment of apprentices from local colleges and schools and maintains 10% of our total workforce in this capacity. Training is important to our business and one our key objectives is investing in people, assisting them to enable them to reach their full potential, the result of which they become a valuable asset to the company, while contributing to the wider local community.
Having 6 experienced scaffolding Engineers on a retained basis enables complete integration with the rest of the TRAD contracts team. Importantly, we are committed to offering best value through accurate planning, liaising with our clients and teams, all allied with our knowledge and expertise. Our objective is to achieve an exit price that is as close as possible to the entry price, protecting our customer’s financial position and ensuring repeat business.
