I would like to take the opportunity to praise / thank Aarsleff for the work completed. There were a few issues on site which they overcame with no problems. Everything that was planned and had to be changed daily was met with the timescales explained. The management of the works was fantastic and we were kept up to date with all changes that were required.

The operatives on site were also fantastic, they worked as expected and with no issues / complaints. nmcn have a number procedures in place that need to take place daily and the Aarsleff supervisor ensured these were completed on time. They were accommodating to the local residents when asked anything regarding their work and they also worked within the times required for the site area.

I would have no issues in recommending Aarsleff for any future work for nmcn or any other contractor who is considering using Aarsleff. Great work, great job, Thanks.

Great service from start to finish, credit to Sam Riley, his expertise was critical in driving an alternative piling process required due to a variant in our site conditions that was initially not taken into consideration. From early correspondence it was evident that a high level of service was guaranteed. Their attendance onsite to discuss a design issue led to their specialist knowledge being fully embraced by all involved in this project and proved to be a key driver in amendment of the piling design to reflect the issues we encountered onsite. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and hope there are many more opportunities ahead to once again reignite our working relationship.

We employed Aarsleff Ground Engineering to undertake the piling and retaining wall package on Rochdale Riverside. We have been impressed by the approach Aarsleff have taken to design, supply and install this package. They are very proactive when it comes to proposing solutions to problems that occur in design and on site. I would recommend Aarsleff to others as they have proven their capability in delivering a high value piling package that has had numerous issues in both design and whilst on site. Aarsleff always looked to resolve any design issues directly with our design team and proposed numerous solutions that worked well on site. This pro-active approach ensured we were able to mitigate any delays to the project. Commercial issues have been dealt with in a timely manner and have been easy to resolve. I look forward to working with Aarsleff again in the near future.

The Aarsleff team were faultless on all three visits to the site. The last project was at very short notice and they were with us within a week which meant that I could keep to my build schedule having got over the problems. Their crew was always neat and tidy and really got on with the job effectively and efficiently.

Of course being a brownfield site there were the inevitable problems caused by obstructions. But Aarsleff demonstrated a refreshing approach to these and simply relocated to an area where they could work whilst the matter was being dealt with. The result was that by working together the works were completed on programme and within budget. As a result of their performance on the JunXion, and also their specialist knowledge and experience of working in the Lincoln area, we contacted Aarsleff in the first instance with a mind to continue the good working relationship that had been built up previously.

Aarsleff’s team on site were professional throughout the entire duration of the project and their level of technical expertise became apparent with the works being completed well ahead of schedule and without any issues.

I was very impressed with the site crew, we had prepared the site which has a lot of made up ground, in line with the platform layout and specification. However it was found that the operating space was limited but the Aarsleff crew worked around this problem and did not lose any time.

Project Dalmuir Waste Water Treatment Works

The two abutments of the 64-metre span temporary bridge over the River Ure at Ripon City Quarry are each founded on 300mm square precast concrete driven piles, supplied and driven by Aarsleff. Ground conditions and persistent flood risk presented significant challenges. Piles were generally 12m long on the Southside and 25m long on the Northside. Aarsleff proved flexible in their approach and were able to install the piles when river levels were low but continually changing. The last launch of the bridge was successfully completed on 20 January 2014, in readiness, for the 50 Tonne Dump trucks it will carry.

We engaged Jon Harris of Aarsleff three months prior to works commencing, as with previous contracts, we have found his depth of knowledge in tidal conditions a great advantage in planning piling and new structure projects. The team placed on these works were a credit to Aarsleff, as their priority was Health, Safety and Quality throughout.


John Gallagher
Site Manager

Project Southend on Sea, Beach Access

Aarsleff has been absolutely fantastic, brilliant, I can’t fault them. There was only one week where the low tides would allow us to work on the beach and install the piles. Aarsleff didn’t need the working platform as the beach was able to support their rig and they completed the piling in just three tides, instead of the seven predicted. The line of the installed piles couldn’t be better and will help us when we come to reassembling all the additional timber bracing. Aarsleff has been extremely helpful right from the start of us contacting them from our search on Google. We saw on their website that Aarsleff had been involved with other marine piling projects. Aarsleff was also recommended to us, as they had successfully installed about 6000 greenheart piles for new groynes on the beach just along the coast at Eastbourne in the 1990s. There are some more piles to be replaced here on the southwest corner of the landing stage and if Aarsleff’s price is okay we would anticipate they could also install those.

We have worked with Aarsleff on many developments and as expected this project ran true to schedule. We had cleared the site a couple of years ago and were able to provide a good stable and level base for the rig to operate on. Fortunately we have plenty of easy access for the pile delivery and holding. The drive went well and the crew were meticulous in positioning the rig. We expect to be working with Aarsleff again soon.

I couldn’t fault the Aarsleff team who worked very hard on our project. They were well disciplined and courteous and managed the safety and deliveries procedures perfectly. They were a credit to Aarsleff and to the construction industry and they are just the type of team we would always wish to work with.

Sewell Construction Ltd

Martin Standley
Project Manager

Project Commercial Extension Hull

It’s essential to have an experience, dependable piling contractor geared up to supply and install piles and to work as quickly as they have. Aarsleff’s ability to feed the process in-house, make piles and install them is a big advantage. We had an initial stock of piles on site when we first started, but once we were up and running we moved onto a just-in-time basis, which worked really well. I was pleased with the piling operation, which was always ahead of the programme.

The piling job was spot on. The design was excellent and the production was first class. I was very impressed with the Aarsleff operation and will be happy to use them again when we need piling for a project in the future.

Steve Hart

Project Selby Leisure Complex

Aarsleff’s approach to their sub-contract works was completely refreshing. The Tower Wharf project required fast-track procurement to meet a strict planning restriction on piling operations. Both Aarsleff’s Commercial and Construction teams ensured the commencement date on site was achieved and their works delivered within the timeframe. Aarsleff has a truly professional approach in undertaking their works.

Eric Wright Construction

Simon Milligan
Project Manager

Project Tower Wharf, Birkenhead

It was encouraging to see how Aarsleff approached this project from the offset. Their team’s proactive mind-set of realising the important of pre-start planning and upfront technical advice was second to none. This positive approach was carried through to the site team’s attitude in dealing with the daily challenges of on-site activities throughout the project until completion. Some 10,000 piles overall, driven within a very tight programme, all without any fuss or complications. Aarsleff’s approach to Health and Safety is impeccable. Using fully serviced, modern machinery and up-to-date working practices, ensured this was one less challenge to overcome. We look forward to working with the Aarsleff team again.

Project NEXT Doncaster

We have a good working relationship with Aarsleff and worked closely together to come up with some viable options and agreed on a format to move forward using two different rigs with bigger hammers and different driving capabilities. I’m very impressed with Aarsleff’s professional manner in dealing with the unexpected and we will now work together on our next wind farm project in Bristol.


Simon Vince
Project Manager

Project Bambers Windfarm

Aarsleff Ground Engineering were employed as a subcontractor on the Wakefield Waste Project at South Kirkby to supply and install 906 precast driven piles to two areas on site, within a seven-week period. They completed the works seven days ahead of their scheduled date, in spite of an initial delay due to design testing requirements. Then, due to a design change to one of the areas of the project, Kier instructed Aarsleff to manufacture and install an additional 185 piles, which they did in just over three weeks from receiving the design information – almost two weeks quicker than our original planned duration for the works. We found Aarsleff’s’ management and site operatives easy to work with and very efficient with regards to design, installation and testing. Overall working with Aarsleff was a stress-free and pleasant experience and I would definitely consider them again for future works.
