Our History



After spending 6 years working in house for one of the largest suppliers of scaffold and powered access in London, Rory created Node Scaffold Design alongside his partner Akua.

Node was created to provide modern, consistent and high quality design service to all clients. To keep up with demand Rory took on his previous trainee Derek to help with adhoc, freelance support when required.

Three months later with even more demand on the horizon, with his background in Civil Engineering and brilliant 2D and 3D design skills Johnathan joined Node. Within eight months Node had grown from the duo of Rory and Akua to the beginning of a team.



Entering into 2020 Node had seen year on year growth with a constantly expanding client base. As Node developed and grew the administrative work and accounting workload grew. To support this side of the business Ross (Rory's father) was brought on board. Having someone to trust with key business tasks was key for Node, and this enabled the company to provide an even smoother service for everyone.

With the restrictions brought in during 2020 Node was kept busy with ongoing key projects whilst also using this time to further develop our capabilities with new software and utilising the latest in available information to provide an improving design service. As a tumultuous 2020 ended along came a massive increase in upcoming projects. To ensure Node had the the capacity to cover these and future projects another hire was on the horizon.

Coming off the back of Gold and Bronze medals at World Skills, and with an extremely strong CAD background in mechanical engineering Ross was brought on to the team.


As we added to our systems we also added to our team again. Derek officially joined the company full time during peak lockdown. Being one of the early supporters of Node it was a long time coming, and a great step in building the teams capabilities.



The latter end of 2019 brought some complex projects with one standing out amongst the rest, Fulham Gas Works. The challenge represented by working on two Heritage Listed Buildings stood out as a real milestone in the development of Node, cementing our ability to deliver a project of this scope.

As Node took on more complex projects, our first in house designer was brought onboard. As our first ever full time employee.



After 3 years of high level growth and expansion, Node's 4th year looked to be another great and busy year.  To ensure Node continued in this vein and plan for the future Ed joined the team.


With a strong track record of business experience, having headed up international growth for a mammoth craft brewer, and European expansion for a distillery, Ed was brought on to manage and track Node's day to day analytics, and forecasts the companies growth so the team can always keep an eye on the future.
