CRL was established in 1955 by Major Mark and Albert Hill and during the last six decades has grown to become renowned for its innovative engineering solutions delivered in a safe and sustainable manner.
Four of the main board Directors joined CRL in the Early 1980s as Junior Engineers when Albert Hill was still Chairman, providing a wealth of experience in the industry. In addition all of CRL's Regional Managers have been with the business for more than ten years.
Our Head Office is in London where our support services such as finance and HR are located. We established our Bristol and Chesterfield offices 20 years ago followed by our Falkirk and Runcorn offices shortly afterwards to provide full UK mainland coverage. All the regional offices are able to provide the whole range of our services.
In 2010 we established an office in Abu Dhabi to service the Gulf Region with our sponsor, Bin Moosa Group. CRL Emirates provides a similar range of services for the inspection and repair of concrete buildings and structures.
Our work spans a variety of asset maintenance projects which includes marine jetties, bridges, residential tower blocks, water storage reservoirs, power stations and wind farms. We are able to offer a complete service from the initial condition surveys, through the refurbishment stage and finally on-going management.
In many sectors we have long term framework agreements which enable us to provide an efficient quality service by working closely with our clients and working within their operational constraints to achieve their business objectives.
