BDS Ltd was formed in 2011 by Lee Buckley. Lee has been involved in the scaffolding industry for over 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, and overseas. With geographical locations ranging from the UK, Middle East, & as far as New Zealand, 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.

Our engineers have experience within many sectors of the construction industry, including, Rail, Industrial, Commercial, Restoration, Domestic and Events Structures.

“Lee and his team are considered an asset to our company, their professional approach and ‘can do’ attitude means any design integration with our clients is practically seamless “

Wayne Connolly

Managing Director

“Personally, I have had numerous schemes delivered off BDS and on no occasion have I had any issues. Speaking to Lee it is evident he fully understands all aspects of scaffolding. Our customers are impressed with the presentation of the schemes, which is superior to the designs we receive off a larger competitor”

Mike Ward

Operations Director

“Working in the Heritage restoration sector requires a different way of thinking, due to the nature of the buildings and potential problems with ties, and more often than not, the complexity of the works. BDS never fails to interpret exactly what I need from them, and deliveries designs time after time, that both meet my expectations and are delivered within the set time scale”

Warren Birnie

Operations Manager

“I have struggled with designers in the past, until I discovered BDS. I’m always dropping jobs on them with very little notice and they never let me down. Great feedback from the scaffolders and clients on site with regards to the quality of designs. Big thank you to Lee and his team from all of us at Bryndulais Scaffolding, South Wales.”
