NASC 2017 Yearbook Launch: Announcing A Surge in Contracting Membership

The NASC’s widely respected NASC 2017 Yearbook has launched – including confirmation of the highest level of NASC membership, since formation in 1945.

The Yearbook is packed with almost 100 pages of the latest UK scaffolding news, updates on new and revised NASC guidance, CISRS training and Britain’s premier access and scaffolding projects, as well as details of the activities of the confederation in 2016.

NASC Managing Director Robin James opens the popular publication with a welcome stating: “It’s boom time for the NASC and its members – as membership enquiries and applications peaked, sales of TG20:13 soared and the value of NASC membership reached scaffolding companies of all sizes in 2016.

“The NASC 2017 Yearbook testifies to a healthy and dynamic industry, and one that continues to astonish and amaze. The range and quality of work carried out by NASC member companies simply underlines the importance of maintaining the highest possible standards where requirements for NASC membership are concerned.”

NASC President, Alan Lilley – who launched the recent SME membership drive campaign at the 2015 AGM – added: “I am pleased to report the initiatives we undertook to attract new members have proved an unqualified success. I am eager for the NASC to be seen to represent the whole of the scaffolding industry and further initiatives by the confederation are being planned to broaden its appeal. Now is an opportune time to apply for contracting membership.”

The NASC 2017 Yearbook contains details of prestige projects from NASC members, showcasing scaffolding expertise, with examples of leading access and scaffolding jobs from across the UK – including the Battersea Power Station renovation project by QFS scaffolding, Carlisle Railway Station works by XERVON Palmers, Creamfields Steelyard by Acorn Scaffolding and the National Trust’s Clandon Park renovation after its fire, by Ideal Scaffolding (Southern), to name just a few.

Detailed reports updating from the various confederation committees are also included in the NASC Yearbook, including:

  • Audit and Membership report by outgoing Audit Committee Chair and current NASC President, Alan Lilley.
  • Access and Scaffolding Industry Training Organisation Committee report, by ASITO Chair, Mike Burr.
