The alliance means that Northern Piling will continue piling within Scotland, with Aarsleff Ground Engineering providing the geotechnical services and/or retaining structures, to complete the foundation package offering. The companies have also entered into an agreement that they will offer their joint service for ground beam and foundation solutions in Scotland only.
Kevin Hague, director at Aarsleff Ground Engineering, said: "We see key opportunities in Scotland for both our organisations' services to be used here, and, as an alliance, we wish to work closer together to win and deliver that work. Our unique offering allows us to provide tailored packages to our clients, often multidisciplinary, specific to the relevant sector, known by others as a one-stop-shop solution."
Cameron Burns, operations director at Northern Piling, commented: "Through this alliance, Northern Piling are now able provide a tailored, technically excellent service that best suits our clients' needs, whether its providing a driven precast piling and precast ground beam package for a residential development, driving large-diameter steel tubes for a new port, installing soil nails for a small slope stabilisation scheme, or internally too, by investing in our staff's training and development."
