As a leader in our industry we recognise the importance of our clients' needs and always strive to surpass their expectations. In our quest for excellence, we have developed a service which aims to work with our clients as well as for them. VolkerGround Engineering is committed to partnering and believe this to be a fundamental part of our working relationships with our clients.

To turn this relationship into action, three essential goals are involved:

  1. To set down agreed mutual objectives 
  2. To create a methodology for the co-operative and rapid finding and implementation of solutions to problems
  3. To establish a culture of continuous, measured improvement

Where complex solutions are needed, we can adapt our geotechnical processes to suit your particular requirements, even customising our equipment to carry out the solutions efficiently and economically. That is where our ability to respond individually to our clients' needs makes the difference. As our client, you are invited to sit down with us and explore the most effective ways of raising your project out of the ground, from house foundations to motorway viaducts, storage tanks to container port quay walls. We can act as your partner, principal contractor, specialist subcontractor or project promoter. Whatever role you require, we can fit it economically, efficiently and expertly.

We have carried out in excess of 1,000 projects for over 400 clients for all sectors of the industry, including; developers, main contractors, house builders, government bodies and private householders.
