Stroma Specialist Access Profile

About Us

Stroma Specialist Access offers expert difficult access support for our clients across UK infrastructure and building projects. Our technicians are highly trained and experienced working at height and in confined spaces for clients in the rail, highways and built asset sectors. We develop long term consultancy partnerships with our clients as trusted providers of inspection, examination and maintenance services managing all types of structure.

The company was formed from and continues the impressive legacy of HRS Services’ inspection and maintenance division. Founded in 1985, HRS Services led the way in providing clients with bespoke, cost-effective solutions using rope access and other means of working at height. Joining the Stroma Group initially in 2017, the company rebranded to become Stroma Specialist Access in 2019, whilst the environmental sustainability part of the HRS business also continues as Stroma Built Environment.
