“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 carried out all the piling work in an efficient manner and in accordance with our build programme deadlines.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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,” says Martin Standley, project manager, Sewell Construction.  “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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.

“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.”

 “Aarsleff Ground Engineering were employed as a subcontractor on the Wakefield Waste Project at South Kirkby to supply and install 906 pre-cast 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.”
