Jody Parkin, operations director at Aarsleff Ground Engineering said: "Aarsleff already has extensive experience of working throughout the county, and it makes clear commercial and organisational sense for us to be extending our office presence here. We're seeing more and more projects that require having a much greater local focus and so having a dedicated team based in Yorkshire means we are now extremely well-placed to deliver those".
Aarsleff's MD Kevin Hague added: "We've always experienced a high level of activity in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas owing to the strong relationships we've built up with clients over the years. Most recently, we revisited the Grand Mosque in Bradford, of which we had piled its original foundations back in 1998. Here, we installed 120No. driven precast concrete piles over a five-day period for the Mosque's new community centre. Four months later, and we were back in Leeds drilling just over 10,000m at average depths of 11m and 27m and treating a total 5,200m2 area with approximately 1,400t of grout."
Aarsleff Ground Engineering has also expanded its geotechnical team with the recent appointment of Dr Dan Adams as senior geotechnical consultant. He joins Aarsleff's head of geotechnical Jonathan Proctor in the firm's new Yorkshire office.
