I would certainly use KpH Environmental again for future projects

The job required specific planning and working around operational boreholes which meant the appointed contractor had to propose and work to a robust methodology whilst keeping cost to a minimum. The method statement and safeguards proposed were appropriate for the various tasks. Calvin and the team worked diligently on site adhering to the RAMS at all times and met the agreed project timescales and budget. I would certainly use KpH Environmental again for future projects at SES Water. Chris Karunanithi, SES Water

If I was ever doing this sort of work again, I would call them first!

I instructed KpH Environmental Services to carry out essential tank cleaning and gas free certification of 5 old fuel tanks on a town centre site we are redeveloping for housing. The team from KpH were quick, efficient and cheerful and got stuck into the job straight away. They had all the right equipment and knew exactly what they were doing and how the job needed to be done. Safety and following the rules are vital on a job such as this and the men worked safely and efficiently in accordance with the current regulations. The tanks were opened, cleaned and declared safe in one day for a price I considered fair and reasonable. If I was ever doing this sort of work again, I would call them first!
