What sets Brownes Scaffolding apart is the quality and expertise of our team

David Browne – Managing Director

I have worked in the scaffolding industry for 27 years, initially with a local company from Ashford, and progressed to working on large, complex scaffold structures in and around London where I learned how to run projects correctly.

I was later offered the opportunity to become a Contracts Manager for a large scaffold company in London. Utilising my skills, I quickly came to realise that I could run my own company.

After some careful consideration and planning, my wife Lorraine and I started Browne’s Scaffolding in September 2006.

Lorraine Browne – Accounts Director

Having previously worked as a Project Manager for various charities, using my skills in accounting and writing bids for charity in central government, I, along with my husband David, decided to start our own company, Browne’s Scaffolding. I now oversee all accounts along with Health and Safety and Transport, working closely with our Compliance Manager.

Lee Butler – Operations Manager

I have worked in the scaffold industry for over 30 years, starting initially as a trainee then working my way up to chargehand and then into the office with various roles from Regional and Divisional Management up to Contracts Director. At Browne’s Scaffolding, I look after the commercial aspects of each project and lend my experience to the operational team where required, to aid in the smooth running of our projects.

Darren Bond – Projects Manager

I have over 25 years’ experience in the scaffolding industry, initially working on small street works leading up to working in the marine sector and offshore works.

I have been working with Browne’s Scaffolding since 2017 and look after the residential works for the company. I currently work with teams of up to 50 operatives, spread over numerous locations, liaising closely with our clients on a daily basis regarding operational and commercial issues. 

Taylor Butler –  Trainee Quantity Surveyor

After previously working within the banking industry for a world leading bank, I decided to change careers and joined Brownes Scaffolding Ltd as a trainee quantity surveyor.

I work alongside all areas of the business from operational Health and Safety to transport, collating information and processing to aid the smooth running of the commercial process.

Gordon Davies – HSEQ Manager

With experience in Health and Safety in the Construction industry I am commited to health and safety in every aspect of our work. Nothing is more important to me than ensuring everyone returns home the same way they arrive at work. 

Andrew Milligan – Scaffold Inspector

I carry out the daily site inspections and electronic site audits on all aspects of our works, ensuring that we conform to the current guidelines and where possible, exceed industry best practices.

I have a wealth of experience and can be called upon to give sound advice on scaffolding and working at height.


We have a proactive attitude regarding the constant assessment of staff training and endeavour to go beyond industry best practice.

From our trainees to our Managing Director, all are trained to relevant qualification, with each member of staff supported through their training journey.
