Stop construction site delays
Europe, China, USA. No matter what continent the job site is on, when it comes to working on metropolitan areas, there are some common challenges:
✘ schedule restrictions;
✘ difficulty with trucks travelling to and from the site due to zoning restrictions;
✘ limitations on noise emissions.
Urban construction sites are often condemned for not meeting deadlines. All of the restrictions and variables during construction are the cause of the delay, penalizing companies when jobs aren’t finished on time.
Let’s see how 3 job sites overcame these restrictions and finished the work by the deadline.
We are at a demolition site located in Epinay Sur Seine, France. It was not an easy job: half of the house had to remain intact while the other half was demolished into a pile of rubble of reinforced concrete, bricks, plaster, and bricks.
The company installed a BF60.1 crusher bucket on their Yanmar SV100 excavator and recycled the inert materials on site. With smaller sized material, the customer loaded it onto a few trucks, so they cleaned the job site quickly and on schedule.
Scheduling benefit: speeding up the whole process.
How do i optimize my job site’s schedule?
In the Jiangsu Province, a building is being built above a subway station. A company that specializes in municipal infrastructure often found itself generating a lot of waste on its construction sites. To recycle the material, they installed a BF80.3 crusher bucket to their Sany 215.
With the crusher bucket, they now recover demolition materials on-site and no longer have downtime or trucks arriving and leaving the site, limiting the inconvenience of local traffic.
Logistical advantages: less traffic.

United States of America
In an urban area in upstate New York, a house collapsed after a heavy snowfall is being rebuilt.
The house’s roof couldn’t withstand the snow’s weight and collapsed, destroying the entire porch. The only option was to tear down what was left of the house and rebuild it.
Using a John Deere 180G and an MB-G1200 grapple the customer sorted debris and unusable lumber in one truck while placing concrete in a separate pile. To reinforce the foundations he used an MB-S14 screening bucket to separate the rocks from the soil: the rocks and debris were then selected the appropriate size for the new foundation.
Economic benefits: instead of disposing of the materials in a landfill, the client will reuse them to rebuild the home.
How much can i save by recycling materials on the job site?
