“A small, committed and clearly focused company with a very strong long- term ambition”

“Our company aims to achieve perfection in our industry.” This was the closing sentence

of the impressive awards entry for Chris Sedgeman Scaff olding, which took the coveted Special Award 2012 – the overall winners’ winner. Having never entered CN’s Specialist Awards before, the family fi rm saw their hard work and high ambitions rewarded. Representatives from all three

ourselves. My method has always been if you’re going to do something, do it right – and that’s been proved right. “I decided to have a selection of

the family present as this was such an honour for a small Cornish company.” The business started trading in

1996, doubling its turnover within its fi rst two years. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, establishing a fi rm customer base that has included Tate St Ives, Midas Construction, the Minack Theatre and the Ministry of Defence’s Project SLAM, South-west region. Its growth and ambition are matched by a fi rm commitment
