A message from Peter S Morley (Managing Director)
Morcon Foundations Limited was founded and incorporated on the 1st of June 1990. At the outset our office staff were 3 in number and our site operatives 6; all of whom had worked for myself previously. The first 2 years of trading were very hard work for all members of Morcon, this was made extremely difficult when we were left with a large commercial debt due to a client going into liquidation in the first 12 months. Luckily we had very good financial back up and managed to weather this storm. With our considerable experience of underpinning, mini piling and grouting we had access to many blue chip clients, most who have remained with us over these first 25 years.
We survived the early years troubles and soon moved to new offices in Little Eaton, Derby, where we still trade from today. We have always tried to conform to and maintain the highest Engineering integrity which has been proven over the last 25 years by our ongoing trading with some of the best clients in many local authorities along with the construction, housing and insurance/loss adjusting industries.
During the last 10-15 years subsidence repair has varied year on year, to counteract the possibility of a reducing work load, we have endeavoured to maintain working relations with our clients by introducing works that are linked to subsidence and foundation repair without diluting our specialist status. The main addition being the jacking of structures to level. We have proved many times over the last few years that the jacking of structures to level, especially when incorporated with an underpin scheme, can be very affordable in relation to repairs. This is especially pertinent when used for lifting properties where flooding risk is high and/or where insurance is either very expensive or impossible to gain.
I would like to thank all of Morcon’s office and site staff, many of whom have been with the company from the start, for all of their hard work, dedication and professionalism which have made Morcon what it is today.
Peter S Morley
