Deep Soil Mixing continues expansion with new office in Belfast

The unveiling of a new office this September marks continued growth for Deep Soil Mixing Ltd, the specialist ground remediation and soil stabilisation contractor who has opened an office at College House, Citylink Business Park, Belfast and has seen their turnover double in the last twelve months.

The Belfast office is the second new office for the company in the last 12 months following the opening of a research and development base in Staffordshire, England in May this year.

The latest office will be located in the heart of Belfast, to strengthen and expand on their already very strong presence in Northern Ireland having undertaken several soil stabilisation projects across Northern Ireland over the last five years including projects in Dromore, Downpatrick, Derry/Londonderry and R&D work with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and Queens University, Belfast.

To mark the opening of the Belfast office, Colin Critchlow Deep Soil Mixing Director will be speaking at the Northern Ireland Geotechnical Group Seminar on Soil Stabilisation; Design & Application at Queens University, Belfast on 6 September.

Robert McGall, Deep Soil Mixing Ltd MD, said: “Ireland is an important growth area for Deep Soil Mixing Ltd, as demonstrated by our work over the past few years in Downpatrick, Dromore and Derry/Londonderry, and I am confident that our permanent presence in Belfast will enhance our offering for new and existing clients.

The fact that we have been able to open our second office in less than a year, and continue our expansion despite the ongoing economic uncertainty, is testament to the fantastic work that continues to be done by everyone at Deep Soil Mixing Ltd.”

Colin Critchlow adds: “Our soil mixing ground remediation solutions are ideally suited to ground engineering projects in Northern Ireland with a large percentage of ground containing peat.

Soil mixing is an environmentally friendly civil engineering solution that can reduce projects costs, project time and carbon footprint compared to other more traditional ground engineering methods such as various types of piling, excavate and cart away, dynamic compaction, surcharge etc as there is no need to excavate, there is minimal spoil removal, a wider range of soils can be treated compared to other solutions, and there is no need to bring costly and bulky materials on site and with government pressure calling for a 50% reduction in construction excavation waste being sent to landfill. Soil Mixing would help to meet these targets.

This office presents us with greater opportunities to further expand our business, our technology, and our impact within and the value we can add to the construction and civil engineering sectors.   Our plan is to build on the success we have had in Northern Ireland in the last five years and we are looking forward to creating job opportunities locally.”

The company was established in 2012 in Greenfield, Bedfordshire, and has grown to become one of the world’s leading soil mixing ground remediation contractors with extensive experience of applying advanced soil stabilisation and deep soil mixing technology to a wide range of construction projects.
