To whom it may concern,

I write this letter about the business I have personally had with SMS since first working with them in 2008, at the BHPB Ravensthorpe site. SMS were engaged as the principle scaffold contractor BHPB Ravensthorpe and performed duties on the Greenfield site, such as establishing site procedures, day to day scaffolding requirements and more complexed shutdown activities, which included total management of individual projects.

In 2014, I was working at Southern Port Authority, Esperance, and had a corrosion control issue on an iron pre-conveyor gallery which fed the Berth 3 ship loader. There were many constraints to this task, such as gallery load weights, access, and time restraints. I contacted SMS, and worked through the issues. Mark and the team, engineered a safe and cost effective solution which included the use of a aluminium type scaffold. Prior to site mobilisation, the SMS team engineered and trialled the scaffold installation in Perth, ensuring all issues were dealt with in a controlled manner. Consequently, the shutdown was a success with all tasks completed safely.

Throughout all my dealings with SMS, I have always found that they place a high priority on safety and customer service, with all issues dealt with in an honest, open, and timely manner. I have no issue recommending this company for projects and hope to use them myself again in the future.

Goodland Building Company would like to acknowledge the successful working relationship between our companies and the level of professionalism and conduct by yourself and the entire SMS team.SMS are currently providing all our scaffolding requirements on Stage 3 B21 & B25 and Stage 3 B17 components of the Stella Development in Success and are our preferred contractor for access solutions and scaffold options.

We find your willingness to negotiate in real terms as well as your approach to our cost considerations along with supply and demand necessities, an important factor in maintaining open dialogue and complete understanding.

We look forward to working with you and the team for all our upcoming project requirements and therefore happy to provide this reference

I would like to extend my thanks to all your people who worked on crane 7 on Monday and Tuesday. I understand conditions were less than ideal with the service crane being out of action and the weather closing in yesterday.This coupled with a tight time frame meant that the cooperation between the maintenance crew and your boys was essential.Please pass on my thanks on the all involved, it was appreciated.

Very successful project completed with Scaffolding Management Services, safely, on time, on budget, extremely pleased with service provided by supervision and tradesmen, would not hesitate to use them on future projects

The organisers of the Perth Night Jump (PNJ) would like to thank you for being a Product Sponsor for the above event over the last three years. SMS contribution helped promote Perth to a worldwide audience who speak highly of the event and it is considered a template for other cities to use.Working with Brad and his onsite scaffolders was an experience that others in the building industry could learn from and adapt. Obstacles were easily overcome and we were able to agree on a working time frame that was suitable for all.

The working platforms for media and TV cameras were commented on by visiting members of the IWWF as being the best they had seen in our sport.

The venue owners were very appreciative that the promised dismantling and removal of equipment off site was completed as scheduled, as they have had experiences in the past of being let down.

The PNJ organisers look forward to working with SMS in the future.

Over the course of more than 12 months, SMS was employed for all scaffolding works at our workshop facility in Henderson. The scope of works was to erect and dismantle safe scaffold for our civil works (pre-cast) and our mechanical works.SMS also was employed to undertake scaffolding works on the NAAN3 Expansion Project, CSBP site in Kwinana. The task here was to erect and dismantle safe scaffold, especially for the insulation trade.It is a pleasure for me to thank Mark and the team for the works which they performed:

  • In a safe manner without any LTI and all the time in accordance with the safety requirements
  • Responding in an effective manner to the needs and requirements of our works in civil and mechanical
  • Utilising the gear efficiently, and
  • Performing the works in a productive manner


If there is a need, I will be ready to give reference any time.

I wanted to commend your team on their professionalism in performing the erection of the scaffolding for our plastering work. The job was completed promptly and safely. All access points for the plasterers and painters were provided in compliance with the scope of works. They were also provided with clear, safe working conditions on all levels and this has contributed to an excellent finished product.Both trades commented on the ease of access and unhindered movement on both levels. They also commented the standard of work completed. All possible hazards had been covered by additional platforms, especially on the curved pillars.Please ensure your team is commended for their professionalism and safe attitude to all aspects of their trade. I will not hesitate to use your team again and would happily recommend you to any prospective client.

Thanks for installing this scaffold so quickly. The access and platform that you suggested are working perfectly. Building management are impressed!I mentioned to them that you installed the scaffold for us in the same building 18 months ago, through the 30m triangular void so we could install the air conditioning ducting.I have passed your details on. Thanks again.

This is just to thank you and your crews, once again, for the massive effort they put in during the November shutdown.Thanks to your team in Perth for their quick response in sourcing us the teams at such short notice, to the Administration staff for getting all the relevant documentation to our safety and travel teams in a timely and professional manner.

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on our appreciation to you and your team for all the takes undertaken during the recent Crusher Shut Outage.All planned tasks undertaken were done in a timely and safe manner with extra tasks prioritised and completed as well.Without the effort of these men this would not have been achieved, as nothing was too hard or too much trouble.

Well done and thanks, I look forward for the opportunity to work together again.
