Miller squares up to rivals


Miller Piling has entered the market at a very competitive time, but has managed to secure more than £300,000 of work in its first six weeks of activity - all of it negotiated.

The company is targeting the housebuilding and development sectors, and anticipates turnover in its first year to reach £4M.

Managing director Ross Miller is not afraid of the competition.

'I know that as new entrants we will be seen as a threat by our competitors, because we're keen, ' he says. 'But I think competition drives innovation, competitiveness and efficiency.

It keeps your mind fresh to come up with innovative ideas and different solutions to the same old problems. Bring it on!' One of the company's first contracts is for Higgins Homes, which is currently redeveloping a former council depot in Hertford into 112 apartments.

Miller Piling has been contracted to design and install 450 CFA piles, all 450mm in diameter for a contiguous basement wall, and a further 440 CFA bearing piles of 400mm and 450mm diameter for the apartment block itself.

Piling has just started, using a SoilMec CM50 rig, and should be complete by mid-August.
