I am writing this testimonial regarding my experience over the last nine months with Scotia Access Systems.
Built Environs used their mast climbers for cladding, patching, painting, caulking and cleaning of all the facade works at the new 10 storey South Australia Police headquarters. There were initially 2 X 20 metre twin mast platforms which were dismantled and re-located several times during the project at various stages and in different locations. Scotia was extremely helpful in all aspects from design and engineering of the machines to relocating and punctual removal of materials from site.
Their machines were very safe, efficient and effective in getting the works done in a comparatively short period of time.
George Barbour and Chris Smith were a very professional and experienced team. They were always punctual and worked well within time frames given the restraints of working on an interstate project.

Walton Construction used 3 Mast Climbers from Scotia Access Systems to complete the first major high rise renovation on the Gold Coast. The renovation work to the Allawah apartments in Surfers Paradise was carried out by the use of 1/23m and 2/16m twin Mast Climbers. Works included the repair of concrete spoil, removal and replacement of all windows, render and painting of the building facade.
The use of these machines made working on the outside of the building safe and minimized downtime due to the weather. To save on the cost of cranes the Mast Climbers were also used in the erection and dismantle of 17 stories of scaffold that was erected on the north face of the building.
Steve and all his employees made the installation, maintenance and dismantle of the machines exceptionally safe and easy. I highly recommend the use of Scotia Access Systems.

I am writing to note my satisfaction with the performance of Scotia Access Systems on the above project.
The project for Scotia Access Systems involved providing access to enable BuildCorp Asset Solutions Pty Ltd and their sub-contractors to replace old aluminum balustrades for new Hi-Tech Glass balustrades to the 12-storey building situated at 5 - 15 Orwell Street, Potts Point.
BuildCorp Asset Solutions was extremely impressed with both the equipment provided by Scotia Access Systems and the professional service given by the Scotia Access Systems staff. Two twin mast climbers were erected on the western facade of the building, and George Barbour (NSW Manager) and his team erected these two machines over the space of four days. This efficient installation and the reliability of the Scotia Access Systems equipment greatly improved the efficiency and production of our workforce.
In use, the Scotia Access Systems mast climbers are reliable, and on the odd occasion when we required a service call out, Scotia staff attended site quickly and always on the same day. With a tight construction schedule, this level of service is greatly appreciated, as any down time with equipment costs is compounded by the large labour cost and loss of productivity.
Scotia Access Systems machines enabled safe access to the work front. The feed back I have received from our sub-contractors suggests they prefer the climbers over conventional access systems. Factors such as stability, safety, smoothness of movement, the ability to adjust the platform to any required hight and the fact the platform have GPO points all make for an excellent access system.
Buildcorp Asset Solutions look forward to working together with George when the opportunity presents itself.
