ACG was requested to attend site to ensure that the quality and productivity was to the highest level.

Project Challenges and Outcomes

Client supplied materials which became considerably hard to compact, ACG was required to review the current construction methodology and amend the construction practices to enable the pavement to achieve the required densities as set out in the construction documentation.
