Purpose & Values

Our Purpose

"Drive the Evolution of Scaffolding"

There’s so much we'd like to tell you, but let’s keep it simple.

48.3 has been built – from the ground up – to make life easier for our clients. We transform sites into safe, efficient, risk-mitigated working areas. Our aim is to help you to win more work, minimise costs and timeframes, and produce long-term competitive advantages.

We've had enough of the poorly conceived and cost-prohibitive scaffold designs that are common in this industry. A 48.3 design is not just a great drawing, but a complete solution that works as well on site as it does on paper.

We want to deliver better scaffolding solutions, so we decided to 'drive the evolution of scaffolding.'

Profit.  Fairness.  Round pegs in round holes.


Working with Our Values

"What this means to us" are the summary statements and explanations given by our team (all roles, all individuals) to explain what the values mean to them and how they go about living them every day.  We hold each other accountable to these values and everyone is accountable to each other. 

If you can relate to the values and what they mean to us, if you like the idea of working in this way, if you'd like to try them out? Then we'll likely be a great fit and we would love to hear from you and work with you. Either way, we welcome your thoughts and feedback.
