A word from our sponsor
All of our work, from the engineering of landmark buildings and critical infrastructure to the spatial planning and economic evidence in support of development, is evidence based and informed by a deep understanding of what it takes to deliver construction.

We have a strong reputation for taking the initiative to extend our knowledge, seek out opinions, and challenge our methodologies. This open-minded approach to our work is embedded in our culture and our values.

PBA is active across all key markets in the UK and Central Europe, including office and commercial, urban regeneration, infrastructure, education, energy, public sector, residential, retail and town centres, tourism and leisure, waste and water.

The main services we offer are Buildings, Civil Engineering, Environment, Planning and Transportation, and our clients include commercial companies, architects, landowners, property developers, local authorities, government departments, regeneration agencies, retailers and contractors.

We have 700 staff with a depth of technical skills spread across 15 regional offices in the UK and three Central European offices.

We value each employee as an individual and we think this is one of our greatest differentiators. We invest heavily in learning and development, focussed on both the technical skills as well as the softer, personal development skills needed to ensure we grow multi-skilled consultants. Everyone from Apprentices to Partners within the Practice participates in learning and development activities as we appreciate that to be a great consultant, we need to ensure we continuously develop ourselves in order for us to grow the Practice and delight our clients.

Berryrange Ltd is rightly considered to be one of the UK’s leading specialist contractors for Sheet Piling, and all forms of steel pile installation. Our offices are based in the Medway area of Kent, close to our piling yard, where our equipment and pile stocks are stored. We can offer a well-maintained fleet of the latest piling equipment, ideally suited to safe and efficient installations. From initial concept discussions and budget prices through to contract completion and the production of a comprehensive O&M manual, we have the capability to tailor our experience and expertise to suit your exact requirements.
