Date: 31-Aug-2016

Alex Fraser recently supplied and delivered 5,300 tonnes of 20mm recycled concrete aggregate from our Archerfield site to a new industrial estate in the Brisbane suburb of Darra.

Logistics was important; the operation involved four tandems working over several weeks to maintain a dedicated stockpile on the customer site. This enabled a small excavator to feed the hopper of an oversized mobile conveyer rig with a flexible chute attached. An operator then remotely directed the chute around the 6-metre high, 120m3 bays. There were 42 bays supporting the retaining wall, right beside the Brisbane - Ipswich rail line.
Our Archerfield site consistently receives positive feedback about product quality and this was again the case on this project. The contractor, Commercial and Industrial Properties (CIP), is an important and growing customer who develops high quality industrial real estate near our Brisbane and Melbourne facilities. CIP expressed their satisfaction with the quality of material and efficiency of delivery.
Our Archerfield site is very well located to service the development in the area stretching from Brisbane towards Ipswich and Logan, and we have recently negotiated an extension of the site lease until at least 2027.
