CET Infrastructure were recently contacted by Barton Plant, one of the Midlands’ premier earth moving, ground engineering and restoration contractors. Barton were carrying out a non-profit project for the Matt Hampson Foundation; the charity run by injured ex-Leicester Tigers player Matt Hampson.
The request was for a geotechnical engineer to carry out a series of plate CBR tests, over a two-week period, on a site near Burrough-on-the-Hill, near Leicester.
We were more than happy to help and provided a technician, and the tests, free of charge for this fantastic charity.
About Matt Hampson
Matthew “Hambo” Hampson is a former English rugby union prop who became a C4/5 tetraplegic after a scrummaging practice accident for England under 21s in 2005. (wiki)
Paralysed from the neck down and breathing via the aid of a ventilator, it is testament to him that he decided to set up the Foundation so that others who have suffered similar catastrophic injuries through sport can receive support and assistance.

It aims to provide advice, support, relief and/or treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause.
