Stakeholder - CMP THAMES Ltd
Onshore sheet piling
CMP owns and operates a fleet of hydraulic piling rigs that provide powerful and efficient machines for installing steel sheet piles.
The Company has specialised in sheet piling design and installation for more than 20 years and it is common to see the trademark colours on construction sites across the country.
CMP’s modern equipment and installation methods allow 21st century environmental challenges to be overcome with minimal impact to the surroundings and neighbours.
The Company’s silent sheet piling machine allows sheet piles to be pressed into the ground, which reduces noise and eliminates the need for vibration.
Specialising in the design and construction of all types of sheet pile retaining walls, CMP advise clients on the best type and size of sheet pile to provide the best strength to weight ratio, which can lead to significant cost savings in pile purchase.
CMP also specialises in sheet pile cofferdams & basements, railway possession piling and silent & vibrationless piling.
Marine construction & marine civil engineering
Working in the field of marine construction and civil engineering for over 20 years, CMP has the capability to undertake maritime construction projects in the most hostile of environments.
The volatility and unpredictability of conditions caused by storm, waves, currents and tides provide additional challenges to those faced by civil engineers working onshore.
CMP undertakes marine contracts across the UK, and with projects often located in Sites of Specific Interest, CMP prides itself on safeguarding activities from polluting the environment.
The Company’s work varies through a wide range of marine civil engineering disciplines, from subsea pipeline installation and marine piling, to river and coastal flood protection.
Tubular piles are the most commonly used pile in the marine industry as they are robust, relatively light, and capable of being driven deep into the bearing stratum.
They can be easily joined and CMP has a coded welding team trained to work over water for works such as welding connections to piles, or pile extensions.
In addition, CMP has installed hundreds of sheet piled cofferdams within the marine environment and is committed to providing bespoke cofferdam construction solutions.
CMP offer a design and build service for all types of permanent and temporary cofferdams.
Working in the sea provides one of the most hostile places to carry out construction projects.
The philosophy of marine related energy systems inherently involves working in areas of high winds and aggressive waves.
With constantly changing conditions, new challenges can be faced by the marine contractor each day. The successful companies are those who understand these risks and can manage the work to overcome these challenges.
CMP has the experience and the wisdom to plan, manage and operate within these environments.
Expertise is wide ranging, and includes marine civil engineering, piling projects, scour protection, post lay cable protection, cable locating and route surveys, jack-up supply and operation, Archimedes generators, and tidal flow generators.
