Carmel - culvert drain - hardstand crossover

The first 3 photos below show part of the verge prior to any of our work taking place. Our client requires a wide crossover on this semi-rural / industrial property to allow access for large trucks and machinery. The existing culvert trench has been excavated and prepared for the installation of new 300mm Ø culvert pipes and headwalls to match. Following the installation of the new culvert pipework the trench was filled and compacted. A 150mm thick layer of gravel/ferricrete

Byford - culvert drain - hardstand driveway

The first 3 photos show the old bridge above Beenyup Brook which runs through our clients property. The bridge is collapsing and is a danger to drive over hence steel plates have been placed over subsiding holes temporarily. The following 3 photos show the first truck load of concrete headwalls being delivered prior to the bridge and Brook being excavated to facilitate the installation of the new headwalls and 900mm Ø pipes. The collapsing bridge has been excavated and remove

Glen Forrest - driveway - crossover - parking area

The following six photos show existing hardstand areas prior to any works commencing. The following nine photos show the same areas as above cleared of grass, scraped clean and the beginning of gravel/ferricrete being brought in and spread. The following six photos show all the gravel/ferricrete installed, spread, graded, compacted and waterbound. This forms a solid hardstand surface ready for the application of a bitumen tackcoat and a layer of asphalt/hotmix. #gravel #ferr

Lower Chittering - temporary driveway - gravel

Below are before and after photos of a very worn existing gravel 1200m² hardstand driveway which is proving difficult to drive on. We spread approximately 150 tonnes of roadbase @ an average thickness of 50mm over the whole area. The loose hardstand surface was then sprayed with a water truck, compacted and waterbound. This levelled surface will now allow for much easier vehicle traffic for a year or so after which time the owner intends to have us prepare and seal the surfac

Bullsbrook - driveway - regrade - red asphalt - bitumen

Photos of an existing rural gravel hardstand driveway which was re-graded with roadbase, compacted, waterbound and sealed with a bitumen tack and red gravelpave hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide. The freshly completed driveway was scattered with sand to make ready for immediate use (the sand will blow away within a couple of days). #redasphalthotmix #gravel #roadbase #hardstand #driveway #rural

Kalamunda - driveway extension - asphalt - hotmix

This dual driveway property in Kalamunda had a gravel hardstand 7m² patch between the two sections of asphalt. The owners decided to have the area sealed. We sawcut the edges, removed any vegetation, relevelled, compacted and waterbound the gravel surface and then sealed the patch with a bitumen tack and a 25mm thick layer of 7mm granite black hotmix/asphalt. Eventually the patch will lighten up in colour and reduce the contrast. #driveway #asphalt #hotmix #bitumen #patch #

Darlington - repairs - hardstand driveway - crossover - patch

Below are before and after pictures of a potholed bitumen crossover and the asphalt/hotmix/bitumen potholed patch overlaying the damage to seal this worn crossover and give it an additional number of years of life. The pothole was first cleaned out, weeds removed, tacked with bitumen emulsion and then overlaid with a 40mm thickness of asphalt/hotmix/bitumen - ready for immediate use. Sand was sprinkled over the freshly laid surface (which blows away in a short amount of time)

Lower Chittering - gravel - ferricrete - hardstand - driveway

This existing gravel/ferricrete driveway and crossover was regraded, compacted and waterbound to produce a level hardstand surface which will last a number of years. This surface was graded and rolled approximately 7 years ago by our crew and has lasted well considering it's on a reasonably steep slope. #gravel #ferricrete #hardstand #driveway #crossover #lowerchittering #rural

Maida Vale - hardstand - gravel - carpark

Another angle of this 5 year old plus gravel hardstand compacted carpark with daily vehicle use - still lasting well. At any time this carpark can be re-graded, re-rolled and sealed with a layer of asphalt/hotmix/bitumen. #gravel #hardstand #carpark

Maida Vale - gravel - hardstand - carpark

This hardstand carpark with daily traffic is still wearing well after approximately 5 years of use. The top layer of gravel has loosened but still a rock hard surface underneath. #gravel #hardstand #carpark

Gravel ferricrete hardstand parking area driveway - Greenmount Perth hills

Also in Greenmount, in the Perth hills, this house needed some additional parking areas along the front of the house. They chose not to seal the parking area, as they prefer the natural look of gravel / ferricrete surfaces common in the Perth hills area. After the gravel is spread and levelled, it is compacted and waterbound which is why the surface appears wet in the photo. Over the next few days, it will dry and form a very hard and usable surface. Gravel, roadbase or lime

Gravel ferricrete hardstand driveway - Parkerville Perth Hills

Ferricrete gravel (also known as simply gravel) is commonly used by us in the Perth hills areas to match the existing landscape and provides a great material for hardstand driveways, carparks, parking areas and garden paths / footpaths. Hardstand driveways can also be installed using roadbase (which is grey in colour) or limestone (which is a cream / white colour), however gravel is the more popular choice, especially in the Perth hills. Hardstand driveways are very long la

Gravel ferricrete driveway - Kalamunda - Perth hills

This driveway and crossover in the Kalamunda kills area has been prepared for hotmix with compacted and waterbound gravel/ferricrete. Once the surface has dried, it will be ready for asphalt/hotmix. #Gravel #ferricrete #driveway #PerthHills

Gravel hardstand driveway - Parkerville - Perth hills

Gravel hardstand driveways are very popular in the Perth hills area, and this Parkerville property owner chose this material to redesign their driveway to allow smooth access to decking and gates (without any steps or steep areas). For this job we installed cement-stablised gravel (ferricrete) as requested by the property owner. The photo was taken immediately after installation so appears 'muddy' due to our workcrew waterbinding and compacting the material - once it dries

Driveway preparation - gravel basecourse - Gosnells Perth

This driveway began as a mix of grass, dirt, concrete and debris. All excess material was excavated and disposed off site, roadbase installed and waterbound to create a solid foundation for a new asphalt/hotmix seal to be laid once the roadbase has dried. #Driveway #preparation #gravel #basecourse

Gravel hardstand driveway - Lesmurdie

This property in the Perth Hills area of Lesmurdie required additional parking but wanted to keep the area looking as natural as possible. We excavated all the excess material and disposed off site before installing gravel / ferricrete at 100mm thick before waterbinding and compacting. The finished surface blends in with the natural surroundings while still being a solid enough to drive and park on. #gravel #hardstand #driveway
