About Us

H.B. Fleming is a subcontractor specializing in pile driving, cofferdams, excavation support, ground improvement, drilled shafts and subaqueous pipelines.  We currently work in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. H.B. Fleming is owned and operated by registered professional engineers, which gives us the ability to offer our customers efficient and economical solutions.

Our company’s most valued resource is our highly skilled workforce of about 30 employees. Our field staff consists of AWS certified welders, NCCCO licensed crane operators and experienced pile driving foremen. Most of our field leadership began their careers at H.B. Fleming as welders or laborers. As they have developed skills and gained experience, they have been given more responsibilities as crane operators and project foremen.

To support this workforce, we currently have nine crawler cranes with capacities ranging from 30 tons to 110 tons.  This variety of cranes allows us to access smaller work areas using smaller equipment, and also allows us to complete work that requires larger cranes.  We have two excavators which we use for augering, drilling, and driving sheet piles.  We have added a SR-30 Soilmec drill rig to our fleet to further our drilling capabilities.  Our fleet also contains an RTG RG 19T universal piling rig which is manufactured by Bauer.  The rig is capable of a wide array of construction techniques.  These include pile driving, various drilling techniques, installation of sheet piling, and ground improvement.  This rig utilizes a variable moment high frequency vibratory driver/extractor hammer.  We have seven impact pile hammers, six vibratory hammers, ten welding machines, a large inventory of sheet piles and all the necessary transportation equipment to mobilize quickly.

H.B. Fleming has worked hard to earn a reputation for quality and professionalism.  Our reputation and our ability to rapidly mobilize equipment and material has led to many long-term relationships with our customers. We have been fortunate to work with several outstanding contractors in New England on a repeat basis.

Safety comes first!  H.B. Fleming is fully committed to the safety of our employees. All of our employees have completed OSHA 10 training as well as Qualified Signal Person and Qualified Rigger training.  Many of our employees have OSHA HAZWOPER certification.
