We are Progressive
Aarsleff Ground Engineering challenge perceptions. Whilst the UK Construction industry may default to large diameter rotary bored piles; in Europe and beyond, the use of precast concrete driven piles are often the Engineers choice. Aarsleff specialises in driven piling because it is a robust and cost-effective piling solution for many civil and structural engineering projects. From small slope retention in a back garden, through to multi-million-pound installation projects, Aarsleff brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to any project. Aarsleff Ground Engineering works closely with its client partners from concept and planning stage through to delivery and handover. Speed and efficiency, both major considerations for today’s built environment, are designed into operations, but always against a backdrop of safety and good working practice. With all major accreditations held, Aarsleff is the ground engineering partner of choice for any construction project.
We are Adaptable
Aarsleff has an impressive UK based fleet plant and equipment for all of its services and also access to Europe’s largest fleet of driven piling and drilling rigs and ground engineering machinery. Both Aarsleff’s Junttan and ABI rigs types are highly manoeuvrable, modern piling rigs with low noise levels. All of Aarsleff’s equipment is fitted with the latest and most efficient hydraulically operated drop hammers. Aarsleff’s impressive range of equipment/techniques (inclusive of vibration and noise limiting techniques) and its offsite manufacturing facility are unrivalled. Aarsleff’s full in-house technical estimating, design, manufacture and installation teams, gives Aarsleff the capability to design and install various types of solutions for a variety of clients and projects.
We are Sustainable in our Manufacturing Facility
Aarsleff is aware that all its activities influence its surroundings, both environmentally and socially. In its sister manufacturing facility, the Harvester collects all the rainwater from its curing chamber roof that can hold up to 75,000 litres of rainwater. All the fresh water used daily to wash out the mixers is recycled. One typical day can see Aarsleff use 13,000 litres of recyclable water. Furthermore, all the rainwater off its concrete floor area runs into the waste pits around the Batching Plant and will be used as recyclable water going into its mix. In the manufacturing process, all the waste concrete blocks go for crushing to be used as hard-core. Aarsleff’s state-of-the-art Centrum Factory also enables it to manage materials onsite, and in turn reduce the number of deliveries to and from the site, thus reducing Aarsleff’s carbon footprint.
We are Sustainable on-site
It cares about the environment in all its forms and recognises that preservation of the environment should be an integral and fundamental part of its operations, whether its installing sheets, driving piles or stabilising slopes.Aarsleff continuously monitors and adapts working practices and equipment to improve the environmental impact of noise and vibration in its working practices. It is able to operate in sensitive locations. The piling hammer can be shrouded to reduce sound emissions at source and where adjacent structures are sensitive to vibration, the hammer fall height can be finely controlled to minimise the effects of pile driving; alternatively, pile positions can be pre-bored or steel tubes driven. Categorised as a Modern Method of Construction (MMC), precast piles use less natural materials and less cementitious materials per unit load carried than an Insitu formed none cased pile. The offsite manufacture of Aarsleff’s products provides a number of benefits with respect to QA, reduced energy and carbon consumption, durability and low waste, while their driven installation benefits from low spoil production. Aarsleff’s geotechnical engineering practises are sustainable for a number of reasons, including the use of alternative, environmentally friendly materials, and the reuse of waste materials. Furthermore, the geotechnical department investigates and implements innovative and energy efficient ground improvement techniques.
We are Responsible
Corporate Social Responsibility also plays an integral role in Aarsleff’s business operations, choosing to support and fundraise various charity organisations throughout the year. Aarsleff consistently builds its position as a responsible Employer, enjoying a good reputation among both its employees and local community. It is committed to act in a socially responsible way in its dealings and strives to eliminate discrimination on any grounds and to promote equality of opportunity.
