About us

VolkerGround Engineering is one of the leading piling companies in the UK.

We provide:

  • driven steel and in-situ concrete piling
  • geotechnical services
  • foundation engineering solutions

With over 50 years’ experience in the industry, we pride ourselves on finding tailored solutions and excel in the delivery of complex projects.

Our inhouse preconstruction expertise allows us to develop bespoke solutions to suit the specific needs and requirements of our clients. We recognise and respect the fact that ‘one size does not fit all’ and we feel this inclusive, tailored approach suits our varied client base and sets us apart from other contractors.

We provide our clients with an advice service covering all aspects of design, value engineering and buildability. Our confident and varied expertise across land and water covers both temporary and permanent projects.

Once work begins, our clients receive a reliable and adaptable service that meets the changing needs of their schemes. We are conscious not to interrupt other stages of project roll outs. Alongside our exemplary service, we place a focus on communication and engagement from the get-go. This enables us to have strong working relationships with our clients, their representatives and their sub-contractors.

Our clear and focused business planning has allowed us to grow substantially from £3million turnover in 2011, to where we are now.

In 2018 our turnover was £19million This growth reflects our strong leadership team, prudent approach, expansion into the concrete market and an increased focus in highways and basement work.
