Keller wins two Crossrail contracts worth £30m

Keller has announced it has won work worth £30 million under two joint venture Crossrail contracts.

The ground engineering firm has been awarded the compensation grouting works at Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street stations in a joint venture with BAM Ritchies.

The contract covers the installation of over 50 kilometres of specialist pipe, through which grout will be pumped whilst the tunneling works are in progress, to mitigate any ground movement and protect the existing infrastructure.

Keller has also been awarded a contract for structural monitoring, geotechnical instrumentation and surveying works, employing the Getec monitoring system which was originally developed by Keller in Germany and recently introduced into the UK.

The contract is a joint venture with geotechnical specialists itmsoil.

Work on both contracts will begin shortly and will run through to 2014.

Keller chief executive Justin Atkinson said: “Major infrastructure projects such as these, requiring complex solutions, play to our strengths as a global, high-capacity provider.

“These three contracts, which will draw on combined group resources and our considerable experience of large-scale tunnel stabilisation projects around the world, demonstrate the synergies between our businesses, particularly when it comes to co-operation on large projects.”

The contracts follow the award of a £37m contract in June for grouting works for the Victoria Underground Station upgrade, which will start in late 2011 and will be undertaken with support from other Group businesses in Europe.
