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.

Gordon Rogers – Contracts Manager

I have over 26 years’ experience in the scaffold industry and joined Browne’s Scaffolding in 2009, initially as a scaffolder. I then progressed to supervisor, gaining a wealth of experience along the way working in various sectors from marine orientated works to industrial works and confined space environments.

I became the company Contracts Manager in 2017 and now oversee all aspects of the operational business working alongside the other members of the team, whilst constantly gaining further experience and knowledge.

Lee Butler – 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 – Contracts Supervisor

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. 

John Goodson – Health, Safety and Logistics Manager

I have been working in the scaffold industry for 23 years and predominantly in the industrial sector for 18 years of my time scaffolding. More recently, I have been tasked with the management of the scaffold inspections for the company and due to my ongoing studies, have been promoted to the role of Health, Safety and Logistics Manager where I believe I can help maintain our excellent attitude towards Health and Safety.

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.
