Steel Coating Machine Foundation

Working in an extremely difficult environment in terms of space and around current production we installed piled foundations to service the new production line. 

“KDS Construction have recently completed a programme of civil works for a new generation of steel coating equipment at our Tata Steel, Shotton site.
It included extensive, heavily reinforced piled foundations, steel fixing, accurate excavation, formwork and concrete finishing to high degree of accuracy.
The project was to construct new coater house while the original line was still running in a very restrictive and congested environment. This required very high standards for management, workmanship, skills and communication.
KDS onsite supervisors attended daily meetings where safety, logistics and contractor interaction issues were discussed.
Communication, emergency preparedness, experience, training & competencies were sufficiently addressed during our site access briefing and a high standard of health and safety awareness was demonstrated during the project
I would therefore recommend KDS Construction & Civil Engineering for any similar construction/engineering projects and would have no hesitation in using KDS for future projects.”

Blending Plant

Acting as principle contractor, we constructed a new tank farm for an industrial chemicals company. This included 96nr piles, multiple containment areas using reinforced concrete bund walls. As part of the project we also installed steelwork and cladding for the new plant and installed a pipe bridge.


New Generating Plant

Acting as principle contractor, we undertook civil works for 4nr industrial generators, including steelwork and cladding to form new plant. We also constructed a substation, fuel storage bund and fuel pumping station as part of the project.


Steel Forge Site Development

A local steel forge based in Sheffield required a large extension to the current forge, including foundations, industrial hammer foundations and external works. 

“KDS Construction have been working on our site almost continuously for the last 8 years. Within that time they have undertaken projects ranging from forge hammer foundations involving heavy civil engineering works completed within tight areas to smaller projects including building foundations, drainage, retaining walls etc. They always work methodically through the whole project and keep to their plan to within a few days, subsequently the quality and especially the accuracy of the foundations are always first class.

Currently they are completing the forge extension works that include heavily reinforced piled forge hammer foundations and foundations for the building itself.

Due to the longevity of time they have been site we know the whole KDS team. They always keep the site tidy and above all safe, as well as being very knowledgeable and helpful in everything they do.

I have no hesitation in recommending KDS Construction to any other company.”

Service Yard

A reputable client required a large service yard to reduce storage and transport pressures. KDS undertook design and build of the project to convert derelict land adjacent to the main site, into a concrete service yard. Elements included drainage into adjacent ditch via headwall, attenuation tank, separator tank, septic tank, slabbing and fencing as well as providing detailed designs and information to aid in obtaining permits for planning and discharge consents with local authority.
