Brisbane’s Pacific National Freight Terminal just got greener
February 7, 2019
More than 1700 tonnes of recycled material has been used on a road project at the Pacific National Freight Terminal in Brisbane.
Fulton Hogan managed the project, calling on Alex Fraser to provide quality recycled materials for the works.
Project manager Craig Melville said he was impressed with the performance of the recycled materials and Alex Fraser’s flexibility.
“One of the key factors in our decision to use Alex Fraser’s recycled material was the density benefits it offered. We found the product was easy to work with and it compacted exceptionally well. The environmental benefits were a great bonus.
“Alex Fraser proved to be reliable and flexible delivering materials on time and outside of business hours,” said Craig.
Queensland Key Account Manager Ben Garvey said the production team at Nudgee made a special effort to supply the job.
“Fulton Hogan required 1700 tonnes of cement treated RM003 for the roadbase in a very tight timeframe over a weekend, when we are usually closed,” said Ben.
“The team pulled out all the stops to make it happen.”
Project sustainable outcomes
By choosing recycled materials, Fulton Hogan reduced:
- Landfill by 1700 tonnes
- Carbon emission by 11,100 kilograms
- Truck traffic by five runs
