Aspin: Civil Engineering & Piling Solutions

Aspin deliver high quality foundation, civil, geotechnical and structural engineering products,  consultancy, design, inspection and investigations to give comprehensive engineered solutions to infrastructure clients

Aspin was originally founded in 2000 and grew organically and by acquisition into the organisation it is today.

We are specialists in foundations and piling, working with our clients to implement innovation solutions in often difficult and challenging environments.  Our piling techniques involve the installation of structural elements to transfer foundation loads through the underlying ground to support a multitude of superstructures.

We offer a wide range of piling solutions using low headroom and restricted access plant and equipment, which has clear advantages when working close to live carriageways, on embankments or under bridges.

As one of the leading UK suppliers for the rail industry, we specialise in the design and installation of foundations for trackside structures on the rail network, working directly with Network Rail through our Principal Contractors and Plant Operators licences.  We also have "link up" approval for working in the rail environment, and our management and site operatives are PTS qualified. 

Whatever the industry, we have the expertise to provide bespoke ground and site investigation, foundations and piling, civil engineering, training and plant services at the highest level.

On the consultancy side, we pride ourselves on our drive to meet our company’s key objective of being ‘Engineered Solution Providers’.


From advisory and design to compliance and delivery, we provide tailor made solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

Following on from successes in Railway Engineering, we expanded our innovative and cost-effective design services into commercial industries including highways, waterways and general infrastructure.

Collaboratively with Aspin Foundations, we have developed a number of products and designs that offer significant benefits over traditional solutions. Examples of these are:

Station Platforms

A modular system using precast concrete units with all finishes either cast in using a variety of coloured concretes and surface preparations. The exact specification can be tailored to suit the clients’ requirements. These are supported on frames that are designed to suit the site specific ground conditions.


An alternative to a traditional reinforced concrete gravity pad that requires no wet trades and that can be installed ‘green zone’.

LOC Staging

Fully redesigned from first principles to allow a LOC staging to be founded on a single pile.  We have taken our expertise, developed within the group, and offered the same level of service to external clients.

Designs are undertaken using the latest versions of software and the packages used are reviewed to ensure they provide the optimum solutions for our clients.


We offer the following services:




Collaborative working on all aspects of civil engineering for the public sector on all types and sizes of projects. From one-off site inspections to fully integrated solutions.



Nationwide design and consultancy services led by Chartered Civil, Structural and Geotechnical engineers. As award-winning survey, investigation and design teams, they produce innovative solutions.



Long established as a leading provider of piling and foundations for high integrity support of above ground structures. Delivering performance that suits the application, ground and environmental conditions.



Aspin is unique in the industry to own and operate an extensive fleet of specialist plant and equipment including award-winning solutions that save time and money on site. A FORS Accreditation gives extra assurance of a first class service.



Geological analysis, full structural assessments and asset lifecyle management. Ground investigations, inspections and surveys, special inspections, non-destructive testing, design assessments and more besides.



Investing in skills development across the business is key to Aspin’s quality commitment. With accreditation from the National Skills Academy for Railway Engineering (NSARE), there’s a dedicated training division and centre.
