As part of our commitment to SHE / staff welfare we now have defibrillators fitted in all of our regional offices. 

Apparently the fully portable machines are simple to use and talk you through the usage procedure step by step.

Lets hope they never have to be used.


Blast from the past

This was one of our first Hitachi EX215’s, purchased in the year 2000 from HM Plant and delivered from their then premises in Coleshill, Birmingham. A great piece of nostalgia and testament to the levels of investment by the Kelly family throughout the Company’s history.


Spring Dig Issue

The latest exciting 'Dig Issue' can be accessed via this link:

Plenty of useful information for site operatives and office staff alike!

New Sites

It has been a long time since we have announced all the new and exciting work we have been taking on.

Recently we have started on sites in Lubbesthorpe, Bourne, Ruddington, Newbold Verdon, reaseheath, Newent, Sandford, Thornton Cleveleys, Carrington, Whittesey and Barrington amongst others.

These works are on behalf of many different clients and include groundworks for over 1,000 house, 4 apartment blocks and all the associated road and sewer works.


NHBC Award

A site on which we are working has won a prestigious NHBC award.

Kirk Raine (David Wilson Homes Mercia) scooped the Large Builder category of the Pride in the job Supreme Award for the Doseley Park site in Telford.

We are proud to be associated with this and congratulate our operatives for their hard work and quality end product on the site.

We hope to continue working with DWH to collect many such prizes in the future


Drone Footage

The use of drone footage is becoming an increasingly useful tool for M.V.Kelly.

By embracing this technology we can relay up to date progress to our clients with a level of detail not previously possible.

The drones can also be used for site security purposes and footage shared between departments.

Pictured here is a section of our Gallows Hill, Warwick project.

Betel Project

M.V.Kelly are working for the charity Betel UK on a project to build sheltered accommodation for 48 people requiring a community based recovery from addiction.

The job includes groundworks plus a new foul water treatment plant and associated soakaway.

Betel UK is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment.

Paul and Karen Whelan are supporting this charity throughout the build. Many M.V. Kelly suppliers have thankfully assisted Paul and Karen to allow their funding to travel further through the build process.

Stafford Office

Pictured here are Chris Villers and his team in our Stafford offices.

Shirley Offices

Our new head office in Shirley, Solihull is now fully operational and all departments previously based in Tyseley have transferred over.

Saving Paper

This week the B'ham office have had settings installed to monitor the amount of printing done on a daily basis. The information tells us how much we have printed and equates it to ecological and financial costs etc.

Hopefully having individual access to this data will encourage users to be more sensible with printer usage and make us that little bit greener.

Carbon Footprint

As a company aware of its  environmental responsibility M.V.Kelly Ltd have decided to offset the carbon footprint generated during our John O’Groats to Lands End charity challenge.

Participants needed to be transported to points in specific areas of the route either by minibus or aeroplane.

With this in mind we have planted twenty established trees which over 25 years will offset the CO2 emissions accrued during the event.

By contributing to a sustainable project such as  these we hope to work towards reducing our Carbon Footprint over the coming years.
