You can call on James Dunkerley Steel for civil engineering works, safe in the knowledge that we have supplied steel for civil engineering projects throughout the UK and Eire, with case studies and an extensive client base to demonstrate our capabilities.

We’re proud of our substantial blue chip client base, which serves as a testament to how trusted James Dunkerley Steel are for the supply of steel for civil engineering works, from king posts for retaining walls, to driven steel piling and foundations, and everything in between.

Our huge range of steel columns and universal steel beams includes the larger sizes required in civil engineering contracts, and we also have other structural steel sections to choose from, as well as steel plates.

Some of the most common civil engineering uses of steel include:

  • Basement propping during excavation work.
  • Cofferdam framing, waling, strutting and raking.
  • King posts and H piling.
  • Facade retention.
  • Temporary access.
  • General temporary and permanent works.

As always, we also offer our other steel services, such as painting and galvanising to protect exposed surfaces, specialist paint systems for specific applications, and general light fabrication to assemble structural steel elements off-site.
