B&W Tunnelling Ltd

Since being founded in 1985, B&W has established itself across the UK and Ireland as a leading specialist trenchless & shaft contractor.

In the early years B&W’s reputation was gained from our vast experience of using traditional hand excavation techniques, constructing tunnels from 900mm to 2100mm diameter. In 1999 B&W invested in mechanised equipment and by 2002 owned one of the largest fleets of mechanised pipejacking equipment in the UK.

Working on the Dwr Cymru Welsh Water scheme in St Brides in 2002 B&W achieved a World Record for a 1500 TBM, pipejacking 55m of pipe in a 12-hour shift.

B&W continue to invest in new equipment, recently adding Microtunnelling to their arsenal. We can offer our clients a wide range of trenchless techniques to suit their needs and the ground conditions.

B&W Tunnelling are a highly motivated technical company continually updating their portfolio of tunnelling techniques. With a dedication to customer service we build long term relationships with clients and help identify solutions to their particular needs.

Capabilities include: TBMs, EPB TBMs & Microtunnelling; thrust boring, rock boring & guided auger boring; shaft sinking; timber & steel headings; grouting; in house fabrication for bespoke solutions; specialist plant hire.
