Surprised at what we do?

Our ever extending and varied list of plant and equipment, excavators from 20 to 45 tonnes, tracked and rubber tyre loading shovels from 1.5 to 3.5 cubic yards, dozers, towed scrapers, rollers, dump trucks for on and off public highway work, low loaders, coupled with our wide range of activities in demolition, excavation, waste disposal, plant hire, heavy haulage etc., led us into land reclamation, as many sites from which buildings were being or had been demolished contained a tremendous amount of underground construction in the form of foundations, bases, cellars, ducts, culverts etc.. that had remained undisturbed and forgotten, in some cases old buildings were cleared, foundations left in place, then the old foundations were just built over with new construction if they did not interfere with or cause problems for the new construction.


Snow Hill Train Station (1983). We were completing technical demolition & land reclamation contracts a long time ago.

A wide and varied range of projects for many Local and National Authorities for British Rail, that became Railtrack which went into Administration in 2001 then Network Rail in 2002, the C.E.G.B., West Midlands County Council, Staffordshire, West Mercia and Warwickshire County Councils, also many District Councils Birmingham, Solihull, Walsall, Wolverhampton, West Bromwich (now Sandwell M.B.C.) and Main Contractors was fast becoming another successful specialist activity for the ever expanding Coleman & Co.  


The muddy road leading to Packington Tip. The smell of methane has never left me since.

We secured long term Plant Hire Contracts at Packington Land Fill Site, where we had a wide range of machinery that was engaged on restoration works and general site engineering. Similarly for Warwickshire County Council on Land Fill Sites at Henley In Arden and Ryton on Dunsmore. West Midlands County Council, at Clayhanger, also on many self managed sites both small and large, nothing too big nothing too small, always willing to oblige.

  1. I would like to point out my respect for your generosity in support of people who actually need guidance on your matter. Your very own dedication to getting the message along has been pretty helpful and have regularly helped somebody like me to arrive at their ambitions. Your important key points means so much to me and still more to my mates. Thanks a lot; from each one of us

    • Thank you for your kinds comments. They’re much appreciated. Coleman & Company has always taken its role as an employer and member of society seriously so it’s very nice to hear such kind words. Stay in touch. Best, Dave
