25 yearsHere are some of the testimonials
we have received as we celebrate 

25 years of excellence


Matt Kuhn, Programme Manager, Thames Estuary Asset Management 2100 Programme:

"We have worked with KGAL for over 10 years in the major barrier sector. I am always impressed with the level of competence of the staff and the quality of their work. KGAL uses the latest technology to deliver their services and this always provides a great output. As an SME, KGAL provides a personal service, yet they are large enough to deliver big, complex projects."  


Mark Noble, Head of Generation Civil O&M, Renewable Generation, SSE:

"SSE has been working with KGAL as a valued partner for over a decade. The nature of the works has grown in scope from hydraulic gate structural design to seismic assessments, large radial redesign, head gear design, large capital hydro station replacement scoping, project management of C&I works, leading edge risk assessment and implementation of automated controls. Our collective knowledge has grown with our relationship into a mutually supportive partnership capable of world class value outputs." 


Andrew J Newton BEng (Hons) CEng MICE, Humber Package Manager, National Capital Programme Management Service, Environment Agency:

"I have had the pleasure of working with many members of the KGAL team down the years and it has been just that......a pleasure.  I worked with KGAL on the Hull Tidal Surge Barrier refurbishment project, which was a particularly challenging project given the complexities of the design, fabrication, testing and the construction involved KGAL's specialist team just made it happen. The integrated project team delivered the works from strip out to new working barrier in only 43 days- this being the maximum time available between known high tides.  KGAL has excellent working relationships with many of the contractors and consultants in this sector and always delivers.  Congratulations on your 25th anniversary - long may your success continue." 


Graham Vodden, Contracts Director, AMCO:

"AMCO Engineering and KGAL have collaborated on a significant number of multi-disciplinary schemes that have been delivered over a very successful 10-year working relationship. Their professionalism and integrity is epitomised by the Regional MD, Dave Griffiths, who is visible, available , and ensures a seamless, efficient service is provided."


Dr Andy Hughes, Director of Dams & Water Resources, Atkins Global:

Congratulations to KGAL at reaching the 25-year milestone. I have worked with KGAL on a number of projects over the years and it has always been a pleasant and rewarding experience. This is because the team is professional, has a great deal of experience and because they are nice people. I have always learned something new and have never had any problems with the service provided. Here's to the next 25 years and I hope to continue to work with you into the future." 


Andrew Usborne, Project Manager NCPMS, Environment Agency:

"From the outset in early 2008 when we first met to discuss the replacement of the wet dock lock gates in Ipswich, I have been impressed by KGAL's ability to think through the issues from both sides' perspectives so that a sensible, buildable and cost-effective solution has been delivered. Along the way we have worked together on other gates in Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Essex and are once again working together in Ipswich on the tidal barrier gate. Working together has always been enjoyable with a robust solution delivered." 


Graham Carr, Technical Director, Qualter Hall:

"We are delighted to congratulate KGAL on 25 years of successful business. We both operate within a very niche and specialist marketplace, often operating in different roles on the same projects with Qualter Hall as Main Contractor/Designer and KGAL as Client Representative/Consultant. In addition we have employed and worked closely with KGAL where they have provided specialist design works on turnkey multi-disciplined projects and we always enjoy a mutually respectful and successful relationship. We are currently technical partners on the TEAM 2100 Framework working on the moving assets on the Thames Estuary for the next 7 years with the EA, CH2M and Balfour Beatty.”
