A Word From Our Clients – O’Keefe

We spoke to Lee Horsley, Managing Director at O’Keefe, about what it’s like to work with Technics, his outlook on the year so far and what he thinks are the challenges facing the industry.

On the current market:

There’s no denying there’s an element of uncertainty underlining current decisions being made in the market and as a business, we’re monitoring this when it comes to our current service level.

On the challenges being faced:

We’re witnessing an extremely competitive market in the London and Kent region, which is putting pressure on skills. The skills shortage is still very prominent and needs to be addressed to alleviate some of the issues in the industry.

On working with Technics:

I worked with the team at Technic’s on our Wembley Park development to enhance our knowledge of what we might encounter in the ground before excavation, de-risking the process from a safety and environmental point of view. The team are professional, helpful and reliable, three things you always look for when working with a firm like Technics.


With offices in London and Kent, O’Keefe provide groundworks, bulk excavation, soil stabilisation, demolition and RC structures and cores. They’re committed to training, innovation and investment.
