Caldwell Construction

Investment

GD0B7103As a business we have invested heavily in plant and equipment to ensure we have a reliable and efficient fleet of machinery that enables us to meet our client environmental and productivity needs. These are maintained by our internal Plant & Operations Department with dedicated in house plant and equipment maintenance fitters.

Within the company’s portfolio of over 2000 items of plant and equipment, we operate and maintain 250 excavators that range from 1.5 tonne mini excavators to 35 tonne large excavators, 350 material handling dumpers that range from 3 tonnes to 25 tonnes, and a large range of smaller plant and equipment from Bomag rollers to Stihl cutting saws.

With this combination of construction plant and equipment, we can provide a complete package of civil engineering and groundworks services to our clients that range from major works of deep drainage and bulk earth works to housing development operations of plot foundations, drainage and groundworks to meet our Clients expectations and delivery programme requirements.

We not only invest in plant and equipment but also in our workforce, whereby numerous employees undertake further education to develop their careers within the business, many of whom take their site experience into both management and the office environment. One example is that of a young bricklayer who with the support of the Company undertook a Construction Management and Surveying degree and joined our team of engineers as a trainee, assisting in setting out and surveying duties. He is now a fully qualified engineer and has achieved a BSc in Construction Management and Surveying.
