Keltbray Piling, which is part of Keltbray Group, has won this year’s covetedConstruction News Ground Engineering Specialist Award on the back of what was an exceptional year for the company, which delivered 107% growth.

Keltbray Piling won the day in competition with eight other strong contenders for combining outstanding growth with the delivery of geotechnical excellence and the safe and successful completion of increasingly complex schemes.

The award was presented to Keltbray Piling’s Managing Director, Stuart Norman, who said: “This year saw us securing our largest ever piling contract at Chelsea Barracks (£10m) for Qatari Diar, our outstanding levels of growth meant we boosted our team with 30 additional members of staff. Our growth has been delivered through collaborative working, technical excellence and, above all, safe and successful delivery.

“We take great pride in our innovative thinking and focus on providing best value solutions through close integration of our works with associated site activities such as demolition and groundworks. The sustainable solutions that we provide aim to minimise environmental impact by reducing carbon emissions and waste to landfill. We see this award as verification that our philosophy of working in a transparent way ultimately leads to satisfied clients. We have a commitment to being the best in our sector and have a passion for delivery above and beyond our clients’ expectations”.

Keltbray was also awarded highly commended in the Training Excellence category.
