Scottish expansion for Keltbray Sheet Piling


KELTBRAY Sheet Piling has announced an expansion of its services to Scotland.

The business was first launched last year from its headquarters in Surrey and is now also operating from the Keltbray Structures offices in Bathgate as part of a planned business growth strategy.

The firm also plans to open an office in the north of England in the New Year to offer a “truly nationwide service”.

Keltbray said the provision of driven steel piling services was a progressive expansion of the firm’s geotechnical services and that Keltbray Sheet Piling is now “well established” in the market place; offering sheet piling as part of the Group’s portfolio, as well as a stand-alone service for external clients.

Andy Appleton, managing director of Keltbray Sheet Piling said, “This combination allows us to provide a unique offering through the integration with Keltbray’s own engineering design consultancy, Wentworth House Partnership, Keltbray Structures, Keltbray Piling and the other Keltbray Group services.

“Our UK-wide offering now includes all aspects of driven steel piling, including; temporary and permanent works design, supply, installation and extraction of steel sheet piles, welded steel framing, anchors and other associated works.

“Our intention was always to grow this business into a nationwide venture. We have now appointed a new contract manager, Jamie Miller to grow the business in Scotland.”

Following a “considerable investment” in new and modern equipment, Keltbray Sheet Piling said it is one of only six operators in the country that operates using the WP150 Stillworker.

Recent high profile projects include works at Battersea Power Station. The firm has also landed the subcontract at Crindau Pill, Newport, to install around 17,000 square metres of sheet piling for Galliford Try on behalf of  Natural Resources Wales.
