TRS Group has been trading since 1991 (then as TR Scaffolding Ltd) as a joint venture project to the construction industry with the founders of TR Demolition and Alan Clark. The companies went their separate ways in the mid 1990’s with Alan continuing at the helm.
Alan initially grew the business on the basis the industry needed a fresh approach to scaffolding and temporary works where doing the job ‘right’ was more important than doing it as cheap as possible. Rather than limit the company to just pursuing traditional access scaffolding contracts, Alan set about diversifying the business by using his engineering design expertise and looking at ways of using scaffolding techniques and proprietary equipment to overcome customer’s problems. Customers would be delighted when enthusiastically presented with technical drawings to illustrate how problems would be solved and the business continued to grow in reputation through out the South West.
TR Scaffolding rebranded to TRS Group to allow additional services to be provided and target more specific areas within construction. Now providing design only services and consultancy work, TRS Group are looking to change the way temporary works are managed.
TRS Group are well known in the south west as the company that can solve problems. A professional, enthusiastic, pro-active and most importantly ‘can-do’ attitude ensured the growth of TRS Group and the attitude runs throughout the business from the site teams, design office and managers.

The scaffolding and temporary works industries have been subjected to radical shake up with many new working practices introduced over the past ten years.
The Working At Height Regulations 2005 has meant that the historical culture of installing scaffolding whilst being exposed to a fall (regardless of height) is well and truly over. Cultural changes take a long time to become normal practice, but with persistent and continuous awareness training our operatives now work to the most up to date working practices.
By taking a pro-active stance and communicating a positive message with regards to health and safety at work we help ensure that all operatives and staff arrive home safe at the end of each day.
