Advantages of Using Biodegradable Erosion Control Products

October 15th, 2020

Coir products (also known as coconut fibre products) and Jute are natural and biodegradable solutions suited to combat erosion control in any environmentally sensitive location. Constructed from coconut fibres, coir  erosion control products provide natural temporary support systems until vegetation is able to establish. Coconut fibres, best known for their high strength and biodegradable nature, making them a great choice for wetlands, protected areas, and shorelines. Whereas Jute is made from jute yarn.

The Magic of Combigrid®/Secugrid® Reinforcement for Piling Platforms

March 8th, 2019

There were many challenges facing the development site prior to construction.  With the construction site being located adjacent to the Brisbane River, it was ascertained that the existing sandy subgrade would prove to be problematic as it did not have the required bearing capacity.  Thus, if left as it was it would not be able to withstand the proposed 370kPa piling rig pressures to be applied during operations and construction.
