It has to be said that digging out footings or creating trenches are two of the less popular, unglamorous jobs within the building process. It’s a critical process though and one where precision is the key if failure is to be avoided. For footings, ground needs to be stable and solid, and the footings have to be in the right place, plus there can be issues to contend with such as a slanting site. We offer a range of diggers of different sizes to complete each project, and many construction developers hire our equipment for this type of job.
Our portable post hole borers are ideal for smaller projects such as landscaping or gardening in Enfield, and can achieve neat and tidy results even where soil is loose. When hiring this kind of equipment, make sure you use a reputable company like Rhino, as there are several reviews online which don’t inspire confidence. One reviewer stated that although the post hole borer they rented, from a company in the US, did the job, there was a lax attitude towards maintenance and repair. Consequently some parts of the borer were secured with duct tape, and a damaged fuel cap meant it leaked petrol into their car boot.
We have a vast selection of tools for professional or DIY use, frequently hired for local authority work. Trench compactors are perfect for tasks involving trench and sewer line construction, earthwork, foundation and backfills. Many a tedious job can be completed in no time with these handy tools. Our trench compactors provide ease of operation even in demanding conditions, plus excellent mobility and manoeuvrability in every situation for a hassle free job.
Our range offers a comprehensive package of products whatever the requirement such as single lever control forward/reverse compactors for compaction of trenches, paving stones, landscaping and maintenance. We also have robust light duty compactors which deliver a repetitive impact on soil etc. Mechanical pokers are a powerful tool with minimum vibration for comfort of use, and high frequency pokers give excellent results with consistently smooth, hard set concrete.
Enfield is leading many parts of the UK when it comes to exciting development, and plans for construction projects abound throughout the area. The next few decades will see thousands of jobs created within the construction industry, thanks to initiatives like the Council’s Build Enfield campaign. This will engage students, residents and job-seekers in a variety of projects which will include skills and hands on activities like plumbing, carpentry, surveying and levelling. There will also be the opportunity to learn about technology in design and robotics.
Cllr Alan Sitkin, who is Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Business, said: “Enfield is in a very special position in London. We are constructing new homes, retail spaces and places of leisure for generations to come. But the success of these projects relies partly on engagement with the industry to help it grow and flourish. Events such as Construct With Us will help build on our already strong workforce in the building sector. For those looking for a career change or to enter the workforce, there are countless possibilities within the industry. In addition, the further education colleges in Enfield have hundreds of apprenticeship opportunities aimed at both younger and older participants across several skill levels. Ultimately, the sky’s the limit.”
Construction opportunities in Enfield are set to provide jobs, homes and will benefit businesses with numerous projects planned. One of these is the £6 billion Meridian Water project, which will bring 10,000 new homes to Enfield over the next 20 years. Jobs created by the project over this time It will include 10,000 construction industry jobs, and 6,700 permanent high quality jobs in the professional, creative, low-carbon, media, digital, hi-tech and engineering sectors.
It doesn’t stop there either as other work is on the agenda such as the regeneration of the Alma Estate, and the Electric Quarter in Ponders End.
