Akela wins contract to deliver piling for retail giant in Falkirk

Akela Ground Engineering (GE), part of the Akela Group, has secured a contract to deliver piling solutions for the extension of ALDI supermarket at Redbrae Road in Falkirk.  The project valued at £27k is the second project that Akela GE has secured with the retail giant in quick succession. It follows the successful completion of a large-scale refurbishment and extension of ALDI supermarket at Craig O’Loch Road in Forfar – worth approximately £70k.  The project will incorporate a number of sustainability features including using displacement piling which eliminates the need to dispose of soil offsite. Work is scheduled to begin on site this month and will be complete by March. Mark Markey, Akela Group Managing Director, said:  “This contract win closely follows our successful delivery of ALDI’s refurbishment in Forfar and is a shining example of the innovative solutions that we are using to deliver high quality and sustainable projects for our clients. “We are pleased to be working with ALDI again as we continue to grow our ground engineering and construction portfolio in the retail sector across Scotland.”
