There is snow stopping Camfaud
In common with most of the construction industry, we have done very little paid work this week due to the snow and cold weather. We have used this quiet time to continue with our ongoing programme of staff training.
We have, over the past few months, been getting many of our operators through their PTS (personal track safety) and ICI (Industry Common Induction)tests and the recent weather has allowed us to accelerate this process.
We now have nearly 30 concrete pump operators with Sentinel cards and so are well placed to carry out concrete pumping works on Network Rail and London Underground contracts.
VolkerFitzpatrick is the principal contractor on the Ely Southern Bypass project. We are currently working for their subcontractor, Sword Construction. Here are some photos of one of our M42 boom pumps, placing concrete for the 300m long river bridge.

Here’s hoping that we will all be at full stretch in 2018!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
We would like to thank all of our customers for their business in 2017.
This year has been an exciting one for Camfaud as we have continued to build the business and can now offer our concrete pump hire service in all areas of England, Scotland and Wales.
We look forward to serving you on sites around the country in 2018 but, in the meantime, enjoy your well deserved holiday break!
The Sun has published a great photo of a Camfaud pump working at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The photo is being used to illustrate a story about the rising cost of building the new stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium
We, and our sister companies, have been privileged to work on many new stadiums and stadium upgrades, most notably Twickenham, Old Trafford, Wembley and the London Stadium (formerly the Olympic Stadium).
