Van Elle completed their first top feed vibro stone column installation at a site in Wigan for a major house builder. Vibro stone columns will improve the bearing capacity of the existing ground to support standard strip footings.
The site is just 15 miles away from Van Elle’s newly opened office in Birchwood Warrington. This is the base for our ground improvement team offering vibro stone column solutions UK wide.
The opening represents our commitment to the new Vibro team that will be based at Birchwood looking to build on the current contracts already secured and utilise the new plant we have invested in recently.
Newly appointed Ground Improvement Director, Claire Garrett commented, “The launch of the new office will increase our presence within the North West and will enable us to respond effectively to the growing needs of our customers.”
With a large concentration of major housebuilders located in the North, the new base provides the perfect epicentre to build relationships, and in turn improve our credibility to deliver within the North, and in techniques such as Vibro stone columns.
