Feb 23, 05:17 PM
In this episode of the Federation of Piling Specialists Podcast, Chair of the FPS Steve Hadley is joined by Jim De Waele, President Europe at Keller.

Jim has been one of the most prominent players in the UK foundation market for nearly thirty years and now as Group Strategy Director and President Europe for Keller, Jim talks to Steve about some of the biggest global issues that are affecting the construction industry across the world.

From discussing the European reaction to Brexit and how it may harm the UK skills market to the impact that Coronavirus has had in different areas, this conversation covers many of the current major talking points but also goes in to great detail in some interesting areas - for example, Jim talks about his involvement in the writing of the ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls, and how much of the world looks to Britain when it comes to standards.
