Ashley Carter takes on new role within Aarsleff Ground Engineering

Aarsleff Ground Engineering, specialist ground engineering
contractor, is pleased to announce Ashley Carter’s promotion from Senior
Technical Estimator to Head of Preconstruction.

Ashley’s always been at the sharp end of Estimating, treating
every project with the same degree of interest and commitment, no matter of the
size or technical complexity. His technical know-how and expertise combined
with charismatic people skills and a positive outlook has made a significant
impression on the company and their clients, and he will now embrace a wider
role in the business.

Ashley joined the business in July 2016 with a very substantial mission
on his hands – to establish and grow the company’s sheet piling arm of the
business. Ashley’s input quickly strengthened their position in the
marketplace, and allowed it to capitalise on the many opportunities this sector
presented. Now known as the ‘Specialist Retaining Walls’ team, Aarsleff have
extended their product offering to design and deliver king post walls, propped
walls, anchored walls, contiguous pile walls and secant pile walls.

Looking ahead, Ashley voices how he would like to implement
changes in the wider industry in his new role at Aarsleff Ground Engineering:

“In comparison to other sectors, the adoption of technology and
smart systems are still majorly underutilised in the ground engineering
industry. I will implement those changes to make us a much smarter company
through the digitalisation of our processes – 
I know it’s something that our staff and clients will benefit from.
Fighting the on-going skills shortage and improving our green credentials is
also top of my list”.

As Head of Pre-Construction, Ashley will be representing the
Aarsleff brand. Working alongside the management team, Ashley will drive key
strategic goals, build customer relationships, identify business opportunities
and mentor teams where necessary across the company’s Estimating, Business
Development and Marketing teams.

Aarsleff’s Managing Director Kevin Hague commented:

“We look forward to seeing where Ashley will take the company in
his new role. As a business, the range of geotechnical techniques and
disciplines we can design and deliver in-house is enviable, and the ability to
deliver multi-discipline packages under one sub-contract is a key advantage for
our clients, but we are never complacent, and we can always do more. The board
and I agree he will be instrumental in promoting ours services and adding value
to our position as a market leader in Specialist Geotechnical Contracting”.
