The NPD Gore site presented unique challenges to the Johnstone Construction team as it held the remains of Gore’s former municipal swimming pools. Contracts Engineer Shea Patten Wise assisted with research that eventually led to the decision to purchase new machinery for safe demolition of the existing site.
A Hitachi ZX135US-5B 13.5 tonne excavator, with Attach 2 supplied multi-grab bucket and 90-degree left-right tilt-motor/quick coupler set-up was purchased.
Site Manager Tane Mason commented that "Equipment like this just makes it easier and safer for everyone on the job, whether it is purlins, steel portals, or concrete itself. The versatility of the combination is quite extraordinary."
