Alwyn Richards - Senior Engineer/ Proprietor

After gaining an HNC in the early '70's and working as a design draughtsman in both heavy & precision engineering companies, Alwyn started his scaffolding related career when he joined Deborah Services as the Group's first Design Engineer in 1973.

In the following decades Alwyn gained extensive experience throughout the Industry, leaving Deborah as Head of the Design Department to take up the position of Technical Director at Macspan Ltd (a Scottish-based scaffolding contractor), then Group Technical Director of the Whitlam Group of Companies.

During his period at Whitlam's he was responsible for all scaffolding design required for the Morecambe Bay Hook-up & Commissioning (at the time, the largest offshore scaffolding contract ever awarded in UK waters).

Alwyn left the Whitlam Group in '86, to become one of the founding Partners in Richmore Engineering Services, a design & draughting service specialising in Scaffolding, Pressure Vessels & Mining Equipment, before forming Temporary Works Design in 1998.
