Lynch Soil Analysis Test Helps Customer Save Time and Money

Lynch were recently contacted by a small residential builder working on a site where they were facing escalating costs due to the client informing them late into the project that the soil had been classified as contaminated.

We first requested all of the data that had been taken on site and analysed this in house, it was quickly discovered that the testing was only taken within the top half a meter of the site, meaning that the underlying naturally occurring soils had not been tested. The client was rightly concerned by this and being out of his depth wasn’t sure how to deal with the issues they were facing.

The next step was for Lynch to visit the site where we were able to identify the contaminated areas and then develop a segregation plan to separate the known contaminated soil from the other muckaway that had not been tested. We then carried out our soil analysis test which showed the material to be Inert.

Once all the results of the testing were available and we had worked with receiving facilities on the subsequent acceptance, we utilised our substantial range of grabs and tippers to remove 123 loads from the site.

The correct classification of the soils saved the company £690 per load, and over £70000 on the project in total.

Haulage celebrates HS2 one-year anniversary

July marks one year since Lynch commenced haulage on the HS2 project at Euston and to celebrate this anniversary our haulage team have managed to compile some key facts as shown below from the project to date.

If we say so ourselves this is a brilliant result from everybody connected to the HS2 project.

The constrictions of removing such vast amounts of muck away from the middle of London and recycling the majority of it is no mean feat and we must recognise the great contribution our wonderful drivers have played in this achievement. Just another example of team Lynch ‘Meeting Hire Demands’.

If you would like more details about our excellent 24hr haulage and muck away service then please call Elayne or Craig on 020 8900 9992.

Residential Muck Away

After removing over 200 loads from the first phase of this site in South West London late last year via excavator loading, we have now returned to remove the next phase of Inert Soil via the “Gecko Truck Loader”, which is lifted into the basement via the on site tower crane and loaded by excavator, 3 loads of the Gecko and the tipper is filled and on its way.

A14 Improvement scheme

Lynch Haulage, is working alongside Costain Skanska on the A14 Improvement scheme is an upgrade of the A14 between Ellington and Milton. We are providing inducted Drivers and 8 Wheel Tippers on a daily basis. The Lorries have assisted moving material around the various sites and compounds on this very important Highways Infrastructure project.
All of the lorries used on Site have Automatic Tailgates meaning the drivers do not need to get out of the Cab to tip the load, an important safety feature when working on live carriageways.
