Project overview

Customer: BAM Nuttall
Client: Highways Agency
Site: M3 Motorway

Project details

BAM Nuttall were contracted to provide major highways work along the eastbound M3 corridor going into London.

The solution

We were the major operating plant supplier for this particular project. This involved us providing eight new Takeuchi TB180FR Zero Tail Swing Excavators for 24 hour use, 7 days a week for the duration of the contract.

Our plant operators were appointed as the senior foremen, who were responsible for the management of the plant hire on every shift.

We also offered back up and client support throughout the entire project.

The results

We provided brand new equipment, competent and reliable operators, stand-by machines, on-site parts and service as part of our overall plant hire package.

Maximum operator productivity was one of the key elements of the project’s overall success. Unique working times were introduced to provide maximum rest time for operators and minimum downtime and delays. This around-the-clock, 24/7 productivity, followed a 12am to 12pm shift pattern that avoided congestion delays that typically occur at rush hour shift changes. The operators were also able to benefit from the time saved on both the night and day shifts.
