Construction & Civil Services

image description

With over 19 years of manhole base construction experience, we understand the importance of evaluating all aspects of a job before construction commences to avoid disruptive, time-consuming and expensive remedial work.

Experience & Advice

We offer advice and guidance on site drawings, CPD training and on-site support.

Solutions & Equipment

As well as offering a wide range of pipe and drain stoppers, Ant Hire is the creator of “Vertform” a GRP shuttering system that creates manhole bases and inverts in a single operation using vibrated concrete resulting in a high quality, watertight, structure that requires no granolithic benching. Furthermore, the system is designed to be able to cope with changes in pipe diameter and direction of ninety degrees and higher.
