Here's what they say about working with us...
Mabey Hire responded to our bespoke request promptly and efficiently, developing a shoring and jacking system which enabled us to lift the platforms onto the support towers and then hang them there as different loads and movements were trialled. Thanks to their support and equipment, we now feel confident in tackling the main bridge structure in the coming months.
FCBC Project Manager
Under Deck Operations
Having worked with Mabey Hire and MWP on several projects over the past few years, we drafted in their services feeling confident that they would be able to support this urgent and challenging excavation on a busy, utilities-heavy London street. Digging holes this depth must be approached with the utmost safety, which is why supporting the excavation with a reliable groundworks solution assured we could go as deep as possible, completely safe in the knowledge that the walls were supported throughout.
Mabey Hire presented a package which saved us the inconvenience of engaging numerous sub-contractors for the propping works. Had Mabey Hire not stepped in with such a comprehensive plan for the propping and monitoring, the alternative would certainly have been a more expensive option requiring temporary foundations. Furthermore, the ability to monitor the structure in real time enabled the M60 to remain open while the work was carried out, which was a huge advantage for the travelling public.
Structures Integrated Portfolio Manager
Balfour Beatty Mott MacDonald Joint Venture
We want to work with suppliers who are innovative, agile, collaborative and who always put engineering integrity first. Mabey Hire ticks all these boxes. We also want our suppliers to have local knowledge and expertise and, given the new tramline quite literally runs past the backyard of Mabey Hire’s depot, we knew they could help us accelerate the critical first stage of construction as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible.

Real time monitoring
When tunnelling in such complex locations as Central London, there is no room for error. It was vital that our construction and engineering teams had access to a complete real-time view of the state of surrounding structures, as well as the project itself, and any environmental impact. Mabey Hire's monitoring solution enabled the works to go ahead safely and efficiently as planned and provided assurance that the integrity of surrounding structures would not be compromised.

Mabey Hire provided an absolute first-class response. From the initial call, Mabey Hire engineers designed and delivered a solution that enabled us to re-open the road in little over 24 hours. The team worked tirelessly, and we are extremely grateful for their support.
