Keltbray Piling has announced that it has added mini piling capabilities to its portfolio in order to meet growing demand for the technique and bring a previously outsourced skill in house.
The new division will be led by Keltbray Piling operations director Lee Cain and the move has been backed by significant investment in resources.
Keltbray Piling managing director Stuart Norman told GE that the new business was aiming to achieve a turnover of £2.5M in the first year and that Keltbray Piling as a whole is on target to deliver a turnover of £70M this year.
“We have invested in more than £600,000 in state of the art restricted access hydraulic drill rigs and associated equipment, including Klemm 702 and 709 drill rigs,” said Cain. “These are compact and very lightweight – 4t and 16t, respectively – while still having great capacity and stability. They can be operated in very confined spaces and can access through openings no less than two metres in height and 750mm in width.”
Norman said: “I’m pleased to say the team and both rigs are already occupied on two London contracts, including one in the City and one in the West End, as well as having several contracts already in the pipeline.”
