Salix’s contracting division undertake works for Local Authorities, public bodies, Utility Companies, main contractors & private clients.
We take pride in working with our clients to produce solutions which offer long term value. Salix own & operate several specialist items of plant such as a walking “Spider” excavator, Truxor, amphibious floating excavator, long reach excavators & hydro-seeding rig.
This gives us the ability to undertake works in areas that cannot be reached by conventional plant and offer unique cost effective solutions to our clients.
We can operate on soft ground, over deep water or in ecologically sensitive environments.
We minimise the impact of heavy plant by using specialist floating equipment, long reach and low ground pressure machines. All our plant runs on biodegradable hydraulic oils. Our own experienced staff operate this plant, all of whom are alert to the special considerations presented by the environment we are working in.
All Salix’s installation site staff are trained to CSCS / CPCS standards & backed up by a management team which has a wealth of experience in our specialised fields plus several years of general civil engineering experience. We received this fantastic feedback from the Environment Agency “Can you pass my thanks on again to Jamie and team who added a lot of value to the project with their practical onsite recommendations, and hard work in harsh conditions.”
Our construction teams all work within our Integrated Management System (ISO: 9001, 14001 & 18001). We are CHAS and Achilles Verify certified.
