The Story

We are delighted to announce the arrival of our new Business Development Manager, Mark Parkin. 

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 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.

48.3 Managing Director Ben Beaumont discusses the move: “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. 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.”
