    What our customers say

    • Tony Posthuma
      Grace Builders have engaged Southern Lakes Scaffolding since 2010 with the relationship starting at Millbrook Arrowtown. They supplied and erected scaffolding to a large house we were building there and we quickly learned that Garrit had an eye for detail and knew exactly what was required. They also supplied propping for falsework as required. When Southern Lakes Scaffolds branched out to Christchurch, we engaged them exclusively to supply all our scaffolding requirements for both, commercial and housing builds undertaken. We have found the SLS team reliable, hardworking and a pleasure to have on site.

    • Toby
      We have been in business with Southern Lakes Scaffolding since 2012, and I would have to say they have transformed the way we build. We have worked closely with SLS and developed a build process which not only speeds up our build time, and delivers a safer work environment for our workers, but also has them onsite at a stage where they are the only sub contractor onsite. This significantly speeds up the process for SLS as well as our overall projects. SLS listen, understand plans and will do whatever it takes to ensure their scaffold is exactly what the builder requires. We highly recommend Southern Lakes Scaffolding to anyone needing scaffolding.

    • Southern Lakes Scaffolds have been our scaffold supplier throughout the build of the new Christchurch Central Library. The Southern Lakes crew have been on site every day for the last year and have done a fantastic job building a scaffold that ticks all our requirements. The staff and management are great to deal with and I would happily recommend Southern Lakes Scaffolds to anyone.
