M&D commenced earthworks excavations for the construction of a parking basement to the new Lenmed Kimberly Private Hospital on 26th May 2015.
The works includes for the excavation of hard and soft rock and removal of spoil material to a dumpsite offsite. A total of 25,000 m3 is to be carted away, amounting to over 3,500 truckloads. We hired in a large D9 dozer (see photo) weighing over 50 tons to rip out the soft rock and have drilled and blasted to excavate the hard rock which was found at depths of over 3 m.
The excavations will be completed mid July 2015 for the building construction to commence.
