CHESHIRE-BASED scaffolding contractor NSS has set up what it says is the first fully integrated roofing, cladding and scaffolding service in the UK.
NSS Roofing and Cladding was created on the back of a three-year contract to re-roof two repair sheds in Plymouth.
NSS was originally subcontracted on the project as access specialist but it took over the main contract after cladding f irm Fou r Seasons went bust.
'We now offer the full range of industrial roofing from single-ply and EPDM f lat roofs to profiled metal sheet and f lat-topitched conversions, ' said sales manager Richard Gibbs.
Contracts manager Mick Cox who, like Gibbs, is a former Fou r Seasons employee, added: 'As a cladding and roofing company, we're unique in having our own scaffolding expertise in-house. As 95 per cent of cladding and roofing jobs involve scaffolding, that gives us a competitive advantage.'
