Listen now to the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) August podcast, sponsored by Central Piling, which features Andreas Körbler, Keller’s Business Unit Manager for South East Europe & the Nordics.
Andreas talks to FPS Chair, Steve Hadley, about what it takes to get to the top in Ground Engineering, as well as his roll and work as current President of the EFFC. He also discusses some of the current initiatives that the EFFC has planned for the next few years and speaks about the recent impact of COVID-19 and just how the situation has been approached, at government level, across different countries.
Specifically, he talks about how the lack of any consistency in approach to the issue from country to country has been a problem for EFFC members, in particular how the rapidity of change – almost weekly – is not easy for any global company to adapt too.
Issues such as working platform safety are discussed in detail and also the EFFC’s championing of the EFFC Carbon Calculator, its use, origins and how it can act as a catalyst to take piling companies into the future – “a route to carbon zero”.
