Every construction site requires the right machinery to build and maintain a productive and safe working environment. Of course, every construction project has its own unique requirements depending on what is being built and how big the project is. However, there are certain machines that play a crucial role and tend to always be construction sites. We explore some of those below.
From creating sublevels for residential and commercial buildings to establishing a solid foundation for any construction, excavation is a key process in any project no matter what type of soil. Excavation machinery are specifically designed to dig up any terrains. This includes machinery to blast hard material like rock as well as bulldozers and diggers to help dig and remove rubble.
Cranes are crucial for lifting and transporting heavy objects like steel beams, concrete pillars and other machinery in and out of construction sites. These towering machines require careful handling from an experienced professional to complete the complex manoeuvres required in their operation.
Loaders and Movers
Loaders and movers play an essential role in collecting and transferring rubble, clearing out rubbish and helping to fill in holes. Backhoe loaders are common machinery used for digging and loading. Crawler loaders combine the features of an excavator and backhoe, allowing you to easily dig and move dug soil from one place to another on any terrain.
The materials used in a construction project are often large and heavy. This means large scale transportation to transfer those items are necessary for almost any project. Trucks are essential for carrying building material to the site as well as helping to remove rubble and rubbish.
Safety and Security
Construction work can be dangerous. Every project has to take safety and security measures for the public and workers into account, which includes using:
- Barrier planks
- Temporary fencing
- Hazard tape
- First aid kits and supplies
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Mandatory signs (e.g. everyone must wear helmets)
- Fire extinguishers
- Temporary overhead protection
- Light towers
- Security camera systems
