If your project has either restricted load bearing, width or height conditions then Van Elle has the ideal piling solution. Our experience of these types of projects coupled with our investment in the latest bespoke rigs, continued expansion of our service offering and innovative techniques maintains our position as No.1 in this specialist market and ensures clients and competitors alike come back time and time again.
Van Elle has successfully completed some of the UK's largest and most challenging infrastructure projects and has experience of working across all sectors. We have developed a sound understanding of the specific requirements of clients such as Network Rail and the Highways Agency, ensuring that programme delays are avoided and the schemes run safely and efficiently. Our in-house design team is highly qualified and experienced in designing for such projects and work quickly and proficiently to overcome any unforeseen issues.
The restricted access building projects with which we have been involved vary greatly in complexity, services supplied and value. We regularly work within existing structures installing piles for mezzanine floors, tunnels and basements as well as in more open sites where the access was restricted. In areas where the ground is particularly poor and money and time can be saved by putting in a smaller piling mat, we can use our lighter rigs to carry out the works safely and efficiently.
Many clients, particularly those with experience of working with us, are confident in putting their reputation in the hands of Van Elle and for this reason, we have undertaken many high-profile projects including Cafe Royal, Tate Modern Gallery, Birmingham New Street, NaREC Development, Reading Station and the M1 widening scheme. Each brought different challenges but our experience, innovation, plant and in-house expertise enabled us to propose and implement the right solution in each case.
Owing to our ability in this market, we often work collaboratively on large and demanding schemes for competitors when they lack the expertise, capabilities or resources in-house to successfully carry out the work themselves.
Our restricted access rigs include:
By utilising our vast range of rigs and techniques, we ensure our customers always receive the most cost effective, bespoke solution to meet their foundation and site requirements, assuring them of a professional, no-fuss service from pre-start to completion.
