Our People

At AFS Bachy Soletanche our key investment is in our people. Practical, dedicated and solution-oriented, they are the key to the company’s goal of becoming a major piling player in Australia.

At AFS Bachy Soletanche, our people really are important to us, perhaps best illustrated by the four key values that we operate our business by. These values not only represent what we expect our company to be, but are also the qualities we look for in our employees:
Caring
Committed
Open to a challenge
Real

AFS Bachy Soletanche are always looking to develop our talent, and offer extensive training plans for both formal and experience based learning.

Safety is also a key concern to us and all our Piling Supervisors and Engineers have completed Certificate IV level education in Occupational Health and Safety in order to make our worksites safer.

We have also instigated and continue to run the AFS Next Generation Leadership program. This assists in the personal development of our more recently engaged Piling Supervisors and Engineers.

Laurent Delonca

Operations Manager
Eddie Shanley
Cert IV WHS, Cert III Civil Foundations

Eddie has off-sided and operated piling machines since very early in his career, so it’s no wonder he’s responsible for the safe execution of all AFS Bachy Soletanche piling works in NSW, ACT and Queensland.

He has gained extensive experience in the piling industry since 1997, having commenced working on the ground with the piling crews, progressing through to management roles in the piling industry, where his leadership on any job is a huge asset. Eddie knows what it takes in the field to get the job done. His hands-on experience makes it easier to work with clients closely to develop effective solutions for complex projects with a focus on achieving quality and safety outcomes on each project that are of the highest of standards.
