    Site accessories you never knew you needed

    Working around a site comes with it's own challenges and unique requirements. In order to get the job done right the first time, you're going to need the right equipment. There are always the basic tools for a particular project, but in order to really get it right, you might end up needing something a little more outside the box.

    According to the Department of Infrastructure's Public road-related expenditure and revenue in Australia report, between 2007 and 2009, labour costs in this industry rose by 2.6 per cent. With that in mind, project managers are going to want to make sure the job is completed in a timely manner, as this will cut down the already elevated cost of quality workmanship.

    So, what's in store that can make this a possibility?

    1) Finding your line with optical equipment

    Taking measurements isn't always as easy as laying down a tape measure. For roads and foundations of buildings, for example, everything needs to be level and in a straight line, otherwise it could mean disaster down the track.

    A dumpy level, so named because of the squat nature of the machine compared to older Wye levels, is an optical levelling device that requires two people in operation. These can help to level out a work site, whether it's for a major national construction or some simple DIY paving, and make sure you don't have to fix up work that isn't up to standard the first time around.

    2) Getting rid of the waste

    If you're about to tackle some garden landscaping, it might be prudent to remove a whole lot of the existing plantings first.

    To avoid creating an enormous pile of rubbish in the corner of your property, a large waste bin from Kennards Hire is going to give you a tidy and efficient way to store anything you don't want to keep before removing it in one go. Simple.

    3) Ensuring safety (and privacy) on site

    For large scale construction, having barriers as a marker of the site boundary is a great way to keep workers safe, and discrete projects private.

    On major roads, for example, having concrete traffic barriers installed can keep people out of harm's way in a traffic collision, as these are safe up to 100 kph. Around more residential areas, to keep unwanted intruders out, for example, a temporary fence might be the better option.

    Whatever your needs, there's a piece of equipment at Kennards Hire that's going to make it easier. Get in touch today and sort out all of your hiring needs!
