AR Demolition relaunch earthworks and remediation division
Company also announces two key appointments as part of refreshed service offering
AR Demolition have strengthened their business with a revitalised earthworks and soil remediation team. The Nuneaton-based company has taken on new earthworks and remediation specialists to rejuvenate its offering in providing a full suite of demolition-related services.
The team will be led by AR Demolition’s operations director Matt Barrow (pictured), who formerly headed up the operational delivery of the remediation arm at Keltbray, following a decade in civil engineering and soil stabilization roles.
He is joined by compliance manager Felicity Barnard, an industry-proven remediation professional who brings an MSc in Environmental Science, alongside a certificate of technical competence to her new role. AR Demolition are also actively recruiting in other positions to support growth in this discipline.
Mr Barrow said: ‘Earthworks and remediation have always been part of AR Demolition’s armoury. Now that we have a dedicated team with a specialist skillset; we can relaunch our offering and communicate to current and future clients that we can provide a turnkey solution for construction-ready sites.
‘We will bring AR Demolition’s customer-focused, innovative approach across the board, from inception to planning, asbestos removal, demolition, right through to remediation and earthworks. What this specialist knowledge will provide is bespoke, collaborative, design-led solutions for our clients.’
He continued: ‘We have a comprehensive understanding of the relevant regulations and we can manage the process from planning and delivery to sign-off. As AR Demolition rejuvenates its business and offerings, it’s really exciting to be part of a genuinely innovative company, which wants to place clients first with plans on revolutionizing the image and work of the demolition industry.’
The latest appointments follow significant investment in new plant and machinery, including £1.5 million on three cutting-edge high-reach Kiesel machines in 2018 after previous investment of around £1 million in 2016.
According to Richard Dolman, managing director of AR Demolition, the company is keen to develop the business into a new type of demolition contractor, one where quality, safety and innovation – particularly in terms of sustainability and recruitment – are placed at the forefront.
He said: ‘Our revamped remediation service is another example of how we are looking to offer our clients a spectrum of services, where quality and innovation stand alongside sustainability and efficiency.
‘Matt [Barrow] and his team will provide a valuable service that we hope can play an important role, not just in providing our customers with the best possible service but also to help with urban regeneration.’
