Recent Projects

Take a look at some of the projects we’ve recently been involved with.

Groundwork Solutions 

Site Location: Chatham – North Kent

Length of Hire: 5 weeks

Contract Value: £12.5k

Our Client’s requirements for the installation of a large-scale Storm Water Attenuation tank was fulfilled using multiple bays of our H-Series Hydraulic Bracing system. Once the sheet piles were pre-driven into the ground and our system bracing installed, the Contractor was safely able to excavate down to the formation level and install their tank in several segments.

Falsework & Formwork Solutions 

Site Location: Bristol Stadium

Length of Hire: 2 Weeks

Contract Value: £3.4k

Our Client required a double-sided formwork system capable of forming the structure of both a new Retaining Wall and a Hydrotherapy Pool with some complex geometry. Our Design Team produced bespoke designs for each pour element using our new Frami Formwork System. We utilised many of the same panels on each pour which reduced the overall amount of equipment required. The Contractor was able to erect all the required formwork with a safe access system significantly faster than traditional timber methods.
