Farewell to Scaffolding ‘Legend’ Richard Brodie

December 2019

The Millcroft team said a fond farewell to a valued colleague and friend recently following the death of Richard Brodie; a former Millcroft foreman who was a talented and inspirational part of the business for 20 years.

Richard was a true scaffolding legend and well-respected by both colleagues and clients for his technical skill, his meticulous approach to getting the job done and his patience in nurturing junior colleagues.

Over the years, he was responsible for managing sites on some of our most prestigious projects, including the Supreme Courts of Justice, the Adelphi Building and the former Daily Mirror building on New Fetter Lane.

Richard’s contribution to developing the skills within the Millcroft team will provide a lasting legacy, and he was instrumental in supporting the apprentices that have gone on to build their career within the company.

A life-long West Ham fan and rugby supporter, he left the Millcroft team to start a new part time career as a gardener just a couple of months before he died, hoping to spend more time with his wife and two daughters. We a very sorry for the family’s loss and saddened by the news of his passing at just 63.
