the advantages of having a slipform concrete fleet

Having a range of machines allows us to undertake a wide variety of jobs and applications.  Different machines cater for different sized concrete structures and the direction of the concrete pour. Large machines can cover a lot of ground within a shorter timeframe and smaller machines can operate on tight sites.

Having a range of machines means we can take on large or small slipform concrete projects, it increases the variety of jobs that can be undertaken using slipform as well as the scope of what we can do on any one job.

Having a variety of slipform machines gives us the flexibility to mobilise a machine for the entirety of a project. This mitigates the risk of scheduling clashes if a machine needs to stay on an existing project when it is scheduled to be relocated to the next - for example if the existing project scope changes and the machine is needed for longer. This allows us to be flexible if there are changes on project requirements or unexpected project delays.

This new machine will be available for both wet and dry hire. Check out our Collie Motorplex Case Study to read more about our slipform service and see how we’ve used our innovative approach to provide great outcomes for the people we work with.
