"Do you really need to be based in the same geographical location as your clients? The answer is No! "
Founded by Managing Director Lee Buckley in 2016, kNnect came to life through Lee's own experiences as a design engineer. After working closely with a local client over a five year period, Lee built up a professional and personal relationship. With no prior warning, Lee's customer decided to obtain designs from elsewhere. This happened to be a Design Engineering company based over 300 miles away! This got Lee thinking... "Do you really need to be based in the same geographical location as your clients?" The answer is "No"! Why can't a design engineer in Glasgow, compete for work in London? If it's more competitively priced and quicker, then great!
... And so kNnect was born!
kNnect is a platform for Scaffold Contractors to advertise their design requirements, to Design Engineers nationwide.
It also provides Design Engineers access to obtain work from hundreds of Scaffold Contractors nationally.
Our bespoke software will automatically filter our Design Engineers to suit the design brief submitted. Design Engineers will then receive notification of the uploaded tender, and request that they submit a quotation. Quotations can then be filtered by cost and/or lead time, as required.
From then, it's down to the Scaffold Contractor to select the most appropriate Design Engineer and proceed with the job.
All tenders and quotations are submitted on a 'blind bid' basis, meaning the details of both parties are anonymous until a successful quotation has been accepted. This provides security for the Scaffold Contractor, and provides fair quoting system for Design Engineers. This also displays that the contractor is following due diligence process.
Both Scaffold Contractors, and Design Engineers are vital to the success of kNnect. All our Design Engineers are fully vetted. Including a face to face interview, reference checking, and their most recent design projects inspected by our in house team. This ensures only the highest quality of both Scaffold Contractors and Design Engineers, thus creating a strong, long-lasting relationship, of quality and trust.
