Keyline Builders Merchants, a large, United Kingdom-based supplier of civils, heavy building materials and drainage products, has announced the establishment of a new geotechnics team. The enhanced focus on geotechnical expertise will be extended through all of Keyline’s UK branches.
In a July 16 announcement, the company notes:
The new team will specialise in providing geotechnical advice and a range of civils and drainage solutions to major rail infrastructure stabilisation projects; highway maintenance; slope engineering, subsidence and coastal protection; flood defences and water management projects….
Andrew Harrison, Keyline Managing Director, commented: “Geotechnical support and advice are an increasingly important capability that heavy building materials, civils and drainage suppliers must provide in addition to a wide range of products. The UK is facing a range of infrastructure challenges from flood prevention through to road and rail stabilisation issues. We now have in place the team which can offer the highest quality support and advice to customers who are dealing with these issues every day.”
