Cloete’s Sand and Stone News Letter: July – August 2017
Cloete’s Sand and Stone was recently contacted by one of our customers to whom we supply aggregates to in the Johannesburg area. The request from the customer was to excavate and remove all excavated material off site over a period of 2 days, and it had to be done over the weekend that was coming up in that week.
We were contacted by the customer on Wednesday afternoon and after confirming availability of the required excavator and obtaining approval from the client the excavator was scheduled to be delivered to the site on Friday morning. All Excavation and removal of material was to start at 7:00am on the Saturday morning and run over to Sunday if needed. We made provision for 6 vehicles, 3 x 10m3 and 3 x 12m3 tippers from our own fleet to be available to transport the material from the site to the tipping facility.
The excavator was delivered on Friday morning as per the agreed schedule and everything was in place to start on Saturday morning.
Over the period of two days 1200 cubic meters was excavated and removed from site, on the Saturday 800m3 was removed and the remainder on the Sunday morning, by 11:00am on Sunday morning all excavation was completed and all material was removed of the site.
The customer was responsible for managing the levels and parameter of the excavation to ensure it was done according to the required specification. Our team of drivers, excavator operator and supervisor worked well together with the customer to ensure the success of this project.
Our service to this particular customer is still on going as we are providing them with their aggregates required for the completion of this project.
This simply shows the capabilities and the level of service Cloete’s Sand and Stone provides to our customer base.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any similar requirements for your current or future projects.
All excavated material was tipped at a location where it is processed in a responsible manner. At Cloete’s Sand and Stone we pride ourselves in delivering a service to all customers in a responsible and respectable manner, which conforms to the necessary rules and regulations.
