Maintaining the Norfolk Broads

To help ease the navigation of boats through the Broads, we provided plant machinery to a well-known marine company. The Broads are a big part of what makes Norfolk, Norfolk and keeping the waterways clear is essential. We are proud to say that our machinery helped them dredge the river and remove that pesky silt. This has provided a much smoother access through the water.

Empowering New Housing

We supplied plant machinery to help construct a new housing project in Easton. With the help of our machinery, the construction teams were able to efficiently prepare the groundwork for these much-needed homes. We are committed to supporting local development where we can and help shape the future of Norfolk’s housing landscape.

Revitalising Old Structures

The old (and some would say iconic) Mercy Nightclub was transformed into modern flats. Thanks to our machinery this space was revitalised into much-needed residential units. Not only does this breathe new life into the existing structure, but it helps to address the housing needs of the community.
