There is an urgent need for the construction industry to break free from the constraints of traditional thinking that have created, and are continuing to fuel, the current infrastructure crisis.

 

the foundations for a better future

zero_waste_developments

 

 

There is an urgent need for the construction industry to alter current non-sustainable practices that are consuming tonnes of carbon intensive concrete every day (the second most consumed material on earth, after water). These methods provide no future benefit,  growing more difficult to perform every year within the limited budgets.

We have a very simple solution made from recycled petroleum waste, that protects concrete foundations from damage for the entire lifespan of a development. By utilising this technology it is now simple to build more affordable, sustainable, and resilient developments that outperform and outlast traditional developments. No damage. No disturbance or waste, No on-going costs or risks year after year, decade after decade.

 


SUSTAINABLE FOUNDATIONS

Secure any 50NB or 60 OD posts, barrier or bollard on Smart sustainable foundations that keep working impact after impact

Items remain secure year after year, and are easily removable for events, maintenance and upgrades.

The Smart Taper allows the quick replacement of posts, with no further effort required to the base. The Smart Taper provides a significant cost benefit by re-using the existing footing and reduces risk to our employees by reducing time spent on islands exposed to traffic.

Refer MRWA Spec 601

The Impact Recovery  Bollards are truly amazing.

Our workers used to find it very difficult to keep up with the constant damage to bollards, especially in the busy city centre where they are being hit on a daily basis. Thes bolalrds have made the job just so much easier

We highly recommend this system to all local government authorities.
