Providing Excavation Support for HS2

MGF is pleased to announce our depots are HS2 ready after major investments in fleet availability and stock. Operational support will be provided primarily from locations at Tring, Hertfordshire and Rugeley, Staffordshire and supported by our national network of depots across the UK.

We have a dedicated rail team offering their assistance and expertise for HS2 enquires and associated rail infrastructure temporary works. Our rail sector Technical Sales Team and Design Engineers are available to meet with customers to discuss solutions and achieve the best results for them.

Always keen to develop the best solutions in line with our customers’ specific requirements, MGF can offer a BIM service and design to Eurocodes. Design services are centralised in Manchester and supported by expert Regional Engineers who are ready to work with engineers and provide localised support.

The Research and Development team, including experienced in-house 3D animators, meet regularly with management to ensure we are continually pushing the boundaries and meeting our customers’ needs. Patent registered and exclusive to MGF, the award-winning GRP GRiPSHORE range of lightweight shoring has revolutionised operations for shallow excavations, particularly in utility and rail contracts.

Industry-leading Safe Systems of Work Guides and animated videos support our products and services. Find the library at the media centre

We look forward to meeting HS2 teams at the earliest stage to discuss your temporary works solutions. To arrange an appointment or a Lunch & Learn please contact the rail team on 01942 402 700 or email
