Van Elle part of historic restoration project in Cornwall

When we were asked to provide a ground engineering solution for a 19th century Grade II listed building in Truro, Cornwall, it was the sort of challenge we relished.

The Hall for Cornwall project led by main contractor Kier Construction is regenerating a landmark building in Truro into a re-vamped theatre and performance centre. The Van Elle team were tasked with installing 42 low headroom piles while ensuring a safe working environment that had minimal impact on the historic building.

“These type of projects are bread and butter for our specialist engineers, however preserving the history and heritage of one of Cornwall’s leading tourist landmarks as well as community epicentre was top priority in our approach. The craftsmanship used to build such an iconic building is of the highest standard, therefore we demanded our team provided the right solution for the client to match. It was a pleasure to work collaboratively with Kier on such a great project.” Jon Bullock, Director Specialist Piling

We undertake many complex ground engineering projects through our specialist divisions, supported often by other parts of the wider Van Elle group. Please take a look at a few more of our case studies to understand the breadth of our capabilities and knowledge and experience we can offer within the sector.
