Keltbray Sheet Piling has opened a new office and invested in new equipment in a bid to match the growing demand for flood risk mitigation work and infrastructure projects.
“On the back of our successful completion of a number of flood management solutions for clients across the country we have seen an increase in the demand for our expertise in this sector,” said Keltbray Sheet Piling managing director Andy Appleton.
“With government investing more in infrastructure we see the flood alleviation sector as a major area of growth in the coming years, and have decided to further expand our capacity geographically by opening a new office in Preston Brook. This means we will be strategically positioned for new opportunities in the midlands and the north of England.
“We have recently taken delivery of an ABI Telescopic Leader Rig TM14/17 VSL with ABI MRZV 20VV variable moment resonance free vibratory hammer and an ABI Earth Auger Drive MDBA 4500-2 and auger flights. With the telescopic leader rigs and pile presses we are able to offer technically advanced schemes to meet strict environmental and access constraints in sensitive locations using silent and vibration free methods.
“Going forward, we also plan to use this flood management capability as an opportunity to expand into other infrastructure work, such as highways, water and sewage works and urban basement construction.”
