What our clients say
Exemplary leadership skills
Damien Brennan of Kilkern has been known to me since 2010 when he was employed as a project manager to deliver civils works at Manchester airport. Throughout the project Damien demonstrated excellent programme, planning and leadership skills. Consequently the projects were delivered safely on time and to the clients satisfaction.
Excellent equipment and staff
Osborne hired a vacuum excavator and driver from Kilkern's specialist vacuum excavator business Vac Uk. Kilkern turned up on time at short notice with top of the range equipment and a highly skilled driver. We hired Kilkern because of their impeccable safety credentials and experience of excavating safely around live utilities. Prior to using Kilkern we had a number of cable strikes but since enlisting the services of Kilkern we have not hit any cables and we have also increased our production ensuring the project is finished ahead of programme with a better safety, cost and environmental record.
At very short notice and at a critical stage of our project Kilkern provided us with site management and a large workforce of skilled trades, to complete all the civil engineering, works as part of our £800m high profile project for Thames Water. Kilkern did an exceptional job and we look forward to working with them closely in the future.
