“Osborne Infrastructure selected The Reinforced Earth Company Ltd due to their reputation and expertise. They delivered on both. They provided both the design and the fabrication of the reinforced earth abutments for the M27 Romsey Road bridge on time and within budget. Design changes due to unforeseen site conditions were dealt with efficiently with expert advice on hand to ensure we produced the right solution for our client Highways England.

I would be more than happy to recommend RECo and would make them my go to specialist for this type of work.”

M Whale, Senior Site Manager , Osborne Infrastructure

“The RECo product was manufactured to a high standard, and delivered timely in accordance with the agreed programme for site installation.  Throughout the design process RECo worked collaboratively with the lead designer and MPact Thales to provide a solution which achieved the contract specification, and sat within the limited available footprint.  The appearance of the RECo solution and the variety of shapes, features and finishes available within the standard solution aided planning approval by the Local Planning Authority.  In short, MPact Thales have been impressed with the performance of RECo throughout the project lifecycle, from design to the finished product”

B Flutter, Project Manager , Laing O’Rourke Infrastructure

“Excellent Service, system and simple to build – would always recommend”

J Millar, Project Manager , Osborne

“The design and materials supplied by RECo for the new Velindre Cancer Centre bridge was excellent, providing a high-quality product at a competitive price. The technical assistance with both the design and installation was highly commendable leading to a very high standard structure upon completion.

We would thoroughly recommend RECo for any retained earth projects and will recommend early engagement on future projects to utilise their vast technical knowledge for value engineering.”
