Reassuring our clients

Message from our Managing Director

For our valued customers, I wanted to communicate the actions we have put in place in the last month to enable our operations to continue throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. We have taken the advice provided by the Government, revised our safe systems and risk assessments and put in place return to work plans to ensure we are protecting our employees on our sites and in our offices.

Three weeks ago, the Covid-19 situation rapidly accelerated as a wider issue. This became more serious in general on the 20th March when a partial lockdown was implemented by Government, quickly followed up on the 23rd March when the restrictions became tighter on the UK all round. At the same time the social distancing issues we faced ramped up rapidly which resulted in our practices, way of working and interaction with colleagues and family changing daily.

In amongst all of this, the hotels and accommodation also shut down, essentially closing our operations. In this time, we made the decision to shield our workforce and temporarily suspend our operations. This both gave us time and focus to roll out a health and safety focused plan to comply with the advice and guidance given.

Below is our Site Operating Procedure documentation, which have been created to protect our workforce on our sites. These have been split into each department of Aarsleff Ground Engineering,  including our sister company Centrum Pile Ltd.

With the measures in place we are encouraged by the responses we are gaining from our employees and clients – therefore ensuring our daily business is able to continue.

For those of us who are affected by Covid-19, I extend my support. If you have any concerns or further questions regarding our actions and how we can assist, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or on 01636 611140.
