“We’ve been operating Volvo excavators since 2010 and more recently have added articulated haulers to our fleet,” comments Managing Director Andy Walker.“The bottom line is that we consider Volvo machines to be the most powerful for the type of operations we undertake, not with-standing their consistent reliability, performance and popularity with our operators,” he continues.
To underpin the mixed fleet run by Urban Regen, a new EC300E and the larger fifty tonne EC480E have recently been purchased along with a completely refurbished A30G articulated hauler. “We now currently run two EC300Es, an EC380E, two EC480Es and four articulated haulers which are used as our prime movers on our contracts,” explains Andy. “The EC480E is proving to be a good all round machine for demolition, earthworks, breakout and rehandling crushed and recycled material. All of our excavators are equipped with Oil Quick attachment brackets which means we can change from bucket work to hammer and demolition attachments without the necessity of removing pins, pipes etc and this goes a long way to reducing health and safety hazards on site whilst keeping our productivity up.”
Urban Regen was established in 2002, with Managing Director Andy Walker, taking over sole ownership in 2010. The company specialises in providing a comprehensive service to the private and commercial sector within the brownfield land development sector, which includes land remediation, demolition and civil engineering projects nationwide. More recently, the company has added demolition activities to further support its offering to its clients. “We are now able to take on a substantial demolition and programme alongside all our land remediation activities, including crushing and screening to produce recycled aggregates for re-use on site,” says Andy Walker. “We also have the capability of constructing roads and utilities within our package of site preparation services for our clients as required.”
All of which could not be possible without a strong and dedicated team of thirty-five currently employed by Urban Regen. “We have a great team working for us with a great work ethic irrespective of where we are undertaking projects throughout the UK and everyone is committed for the right reasons,” continues Andy. “This is partly why we take the opinions and considerations of our operators seriously when purchasing capital equipment and the reason Volvo products are definitely in focus.”
