Structural Concrete and Building

There is capacity to undertake both the construction of both reinforced concrete structures and commercial or domestic buildings. The experience thus far i.r.o. structural concrete works stems from the construction of bridges (inclusive of road over rail), various stormwater structures and water retaining structures.

SURFACING OF PAVEMENTS

With the company having started out as a surfacing specialist this ability and capacity remains essential. This capacity supports both surfacing centric contracts (large and small) and the construction or rehabilitation of roads type projects.

Asphalt Paving

Three teams serve the local market, both on own projects, asphalt overlay centric contracts or as subcontractor. To ensure a quality end product and secure supply, the asphalt manufacture and quality control by a laboratory are both done in-house. The capability extends to new road construction, overlays to existing pavements and specialised applications such as substrate to an astro turf hockey pitch.

Bituminous Surface Treatments

These surface treatments include: prime cost, tack coat, single and double seals, cape seal, slurry seal and fog spray; all of which are within the company's experience. Quality end product is supported by the regular calibration of distributors and the monitoring of material quality (bitumen and aggregate).

Surface Defects Repairs

The repairs relate to filling of surface depressions (ruts), crack sealing, patching of potholes and the reinstatement of edge break. The work is carried out to contract specification or else defaulting to SATCC requirements.

Bitumen Handling

Having the facilities to store, heat and transport bitumen gives capacity to undertake remote works. In addition to the handling of bulk supply with tankers, there is also the capacity to decant bitumen from drums and pump in to bulk storage tanks.

MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS

With the company having started out as a surfacing specialist this ability and capacity remains essential. This capacity supports both surfacing centric contracts (large and small) and the construction or rehabilitation of roads type projects.

Hot and Cold Mix Asphalt

Most production of Hot-mix Asphalt relates to medium or fine grade mixes for use on own projects. Specific mix designs may be made available subject to inquiry. Cold-mix is popular for pothole patching and is packed in 50kg bags.

Pre-cast Concrete Units

An in-house facility was previously developed to manufacture pre-cast concrete units. This is chiefly used to supply own contracts with typically culvert portals, various types of kerbs and paving blocks.
