Civil & Infrastructure

Construction • Complex Structures • Steel Bridges • Heavy Transport

As architects, designers and engineers invent new and complex structures the pressure to fulfil the construction requirements increases.  Collett & Sons are experts in heavy transport solutions for the civil & infrastructure industries, be it delivering steel bridges, tunnel boring machines or complex structures, we have the necessary experience in our tTeam and the ideal equipment within our fleet to successfully undertake these tasks.


The need to minimise disruption both on the roads and to local residents undertaking infrastructure developments requires industries to approach these situations from a different angle, often manufacturing components, steel bridges and complex structures away from the intended construction site.  

The heavy transport and delivery of these frequently oversized cargoes provides Collett & Sons with the opportunity to demonstrate our expertise within the civil & infrastructure field, overseeing the heavy lift requirements, heavy transport, delivery and positioning of the required load. Operating our specialist fleet of vehicles, Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT), jacking & skidding equipment, bogie trailers and utilising our heavy lift experience we can efficiently and effectively assist in the completion of these projects.  Our team possess the knowledge and experience to safely deliver these abnormal loads from manufacturing facility to construction site and we can often be spotted transporting lengthy steel bridges country wide.

Whether it’s complex structures, steel bridges, heavy components or abnormal loads, Collett have the knowledge and experience to manage these cargoes ensuring your project is completed on time, on budget and most importantly adhering to the highest safety standards.
