Major investment in construction offerings

Severfield has recently made a substantial investment of £2.48m for the purchase of four LTM1070 Liebherr mobile cranes for use in the construction of our projects.

These cranes, each with a lifting capacity of 70 tonnes, will be predominantly used on our Severfield (Design & Build) (S(D&B)) sites - as the majority of these projects require mobile cranes - rather than the tower cranes we use on projects where we are constructing in more built-up areas.

Major investment in construction offerings

Alongside this, the S(D&B) division has also enrolled 20 permanent steel erectors. Where previously we have sub-contracted much of this business unit’s construction – we will now be able to utilise the new cranes, steel erectors and trained crane drivers to construct around 20-40% of our steel on site going forward.

Major investment in construction offerings

This a huge investment for Severfield and means we are continuing to increase our skillset and offerings to our clients across the Group.
