QUARRY ROCKFACE STABILISATION

QUARRY ROCKFACE STABILISATION

Behind The Latter Day Saints Church, Dunedin, is an old basalt quarry face. Our geotechnical crew were called in to install rock bolts and shotcrete to unstable areas.

With the help of some long reach EWP’s, and the odd crane, the work was completed in record time.

Well done geo team, you deserve a well earned lamington!

EXPLOSIVE DEMOLITION

EXPLOSIVE DEMOLITION

The explosive demolition of 220m guyed radio mast in Titahi Bay was successful. Cameras all around captured various aspects of the felling and a short movie is due out soon.

One camera, stationed at the base, caught the 80 ton mast completely off the ground just before impact. We also captured some great sound thanks to dedicated microphones carefully positioned.

Despite the demo day being the only cloudy day in 3 weeks of sunshine quite a crowd gathered to witness it final moments.

DRILL AND BLAST

DRILL AND BLAST

This time the cliff that required drill and blast removal was on Bluff Road, Northern Coromandel.

Our team of 5 drilled and blasted 300+m3 of rock using two cliff face drill rigs and sequentially timed explosives.

A high level of fracture was required with minimal fly rock and no back break.
