Scaffolding Services

Image At Gilco Scaffolding Co., we are a full-service company dedicated to providing value-added scaffolding services to customers in all of the construction trades. Serving the Chicago area since 1938, we create successful partnerships with our clients throughout the entire construction process to ensure all of your scaffolding, shoring, and hoisting needs are met. We bring the commitment and dedication of a family owned and operated company to the forefront to exceed your expectations for safety and quality.

We provide professionally engineered and stamped drawings that meet all of your worksite access, protection, and support needs. Our in-depth knowledge of building codes ensures the design and installation minimize your liability. With our years of experience navigating through the permitting process, we offer expedited permit services for our scaffolding work within the City of Chicago. All equipment is erected in full compliance with all applicable fire codes, allowing full access to building exits.

Our large inventory of scaffolding equipment covers built-up, canopy, and suspended systems. We offer both electric and gas-powered mast climbers with work decks that adapt to the building profile, allow easy loading at ground level and provide fast movement up and down the building facade. Stair towers, heavy-duty shoring systems, and low and high capacity wall bracing, as well as items such as debris chutes and landing platforms, are available in many different configurations. We also provide modular concrete traffic barriers with optional fencing, screening, and gates.

Our goal is to provide quality products and services that ensure that your worksite is accessible, productive, safe, and secure. Contact us directly for more information about our expert scaffolding services.
