About Us

BDS Ltd was formed in 2011 by Lee Buckley. Lee has been involved in the scaffolding industry for almost 20 years. Starting as a yard/depot operative in 1996, Lee has steadily worked his way up the industry ladder, from scaffolder, through to site supervisor, trainee design engineer, and is now a senior design engineer. This 'hands on' experience means that Lee has the understanding and knowledge, not only to relate to the technical aspects, but can also look at the practicalities on site, for the operatives involved. This invaluable experience truly sets us apart from other design companies.

We are located in the North West, however we can, and do, complete projects nationwide. With geographical locations ranging from Plymouths Royal Albert Bridge to Tay Bridge Scotland, no site or design is out of our capability.

Our aim is not only to provide scaffold design solutions, but to provide a professional and personal service, including design advice and guidance.
