A bit of Cambridge culture

After a long day of construction in ‘Silicon Fen’ or restoration work at one of the many university buildings, make sure to take a breather in Cambridge. Grab a pint and sit by the famous River Cam. Go on, you deserve it.

Cambridgeshire plant hire. Done.

Rolling Out the Perfect Cricket Pitch

You know we mentioned that we cover all industries. Well, we really meant it. Did you know that we supplied rollers to a team in Cambridgeshire that allowed them to maintain a cricket pitch? That equipment helped prepare a level and match ready playing surface for the local cricketing community. How’s that… for a wicket?

Supporting Demolition Companies

Our plant not only helps to put construction projects up, sometimes it takes them down. Our machinery has helped professional teams ensure the safe and efficient demolition of many structures across Cambridgeshire. Not sure what you need for your demolition project?
