Property & Construction | CLL Service and Solutions

Engineered solutions CLL Service and Solutions Limited recently invested in large and small new piling machinery to extend its capabilities and complete a broader range of projects. CLL are specialists in ground works, including bored, driven and sheet piling, retaining wall construction, slip stabilisation, ground anchor installation, seismic strengthening, site decontamination, and drainage and foundation work.

New high tech piling equipment CLL managing director Terry Donnelly says the company has taken possession of some technically advanced piling equipment. “We have a new Liebherr LB24 rotary drilling machine, which can drill 2.5 metre diameter holes, 50 metres deep, and can produce 22 metre deep

full-displacement piles and CFA piles, which has enhanced our previous capacity,” he says. “CLL has also purchased an ABI Mobilram rig from Germany. It makes the installation and removal of steel piles, and steel tubes very accurate and quick. On one day at the Wynyard Quarter on Building 5 for Hawkins, the machine installed 66, 12 metre deep sheet piles, and averaged 40 piles per day for the duration of the job.” CLL has imported recently a limited head room piling rig capable of drilling 600dia piles under 2.8m head down to 15m deep.

A bright future Terry says CLL has several big contracts lined up for 2017, when the company will be transitioning into a worker-owned co-operative business. “The current owner is vendor financing the ownership of the company to a large number of key staff,” he says.

“A further proportion of the company’s income will be distributed evenly between the long-term

staff going forward. In that way, CLL continues to have extremely low staff turnover and high staff retention. We’ve already started that process and it will be completed progressively over five years or so. “CLL enjoys a very good engagement by staff. Our people behave like they own the jobs, essentially of course, because they do. They are the face and the future of CLL.”
