Sheet Piling UK Equipped to Help UK Economy’s Recovery
As the UK’s leading specialist sheet piling contractor, here at Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd we have shown our commitment to our clients during the period of UK lockdown, by investing in improvements and equipment, rather than cutting back on our programme of innovation and service delivery.
We have invested over £1m in what was already an extensive fleet of specialist piling equipment fleet, as well as further extending our in-house staff training programme, to ensure we can continue to provide our clients with innovative and cost-effective solutions, aligned with the needs of contractors delivering projects that will help the UK economy with its economic recovery.
We have also invested in stock, with over 6000Te of both Emirates Steel and Arcelor Mittal sheet piles available. As a sheet piling project design and installation specialist we believe it important to maintain our exceptional levels of stockholding.
We have been fully operational throughout lockdown across all of our divisions – design, estimating and construction – whilst adhering to all COVID-19 protocols. Our health and safety manager has implemented new training programmes, to ensure all employees are fully aware of the new safety regulations, and additional steps have been taken to keep staff safe.
With the full commitment of our experienced head office and operational staff, we have been able to maintain an efficient level of productivity and a continuity with regard to our planned projects. In the past few months, whilst staying compliant, we have been able to carry out major emergency repair works at two reservoir projects and also play our part in the re-development of Fulham FC.
We have also continued to work on the installation of Emergency Rescue Areas as part of Britain’s smart motorway programme, retrospectively fitting ERAs on some motorways, in accordance with new safety measures being introduced by government.
With everything running as smoothly as normal, Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd is fit, prepared and ready to go, whatever a client’s groundworks or sheet piling requirements. Due to our extensive stockholding of steel sheet piles, as highlighted, we can also react quickly to any orders that need to be fulfilled or to the needs of projects requiring speedy and cost-effective groundworks solutions.
Andrew Cotton, our managing director says, “We have managed to maintain as much of our work schedule as normal, whilst demonstrating a responsible duty of care over our employees during very taxing times. We have adopted best practice with regard to screening, hygiene and working practices, having teams work as bubbles with the co-operation of clients and ensuring that inductions and briefings have been carried out outdoors, rather than inside buildings.
“With the great effort our staff have put in to enable us to enjoy such continuity within our operations, we have been able to further invest in the business with confidence and demonstrate our capacity for working on a wide range of public and private-sector projects. We wish to play a full part in the economy’s recovery and are very well placed to do so.”
