Building Greener with Brancatella
July 16, 2019
Alex Fraser Queensland has developed strong relationships with a number of core customers who consistently choose recycled materials. One such customer is Brancatella Plant Hire.
Brancatella is the family business and brainchild of Bill Brancatella. With a form guide spanning 40 years, it delivers quality construction projects throughout south-east Queensland.
Brancatella’s reputation is built on their ability to deliver a consistently reliable service partnered with expertise in plant hire, haulage, and civil construction. In Queensland’s civil construction industry, Brancatella is a highly regarded, go-to contractor, completing a great variety of projects for respected builders like Hutchinson’s, Watpac, Paynter Dixon and Tomkins Commercial.
Brancatella’s Senior Estimator Shane Dave said when buying road base and drainage aggregates they consistently opted for Alex Fraser’s sustainable products.
“We continue to use these recycled products because we know Alex Fraser
goes the extra mile to deliver on time, flexibly meets our delivery requirements, and offers quality materials at competitive rates.
“It’s good to know that we are doing something positive for the environment by using green products; that’s a bonus for our customers too,” said Shane.
Alex Fraser is currently supplying several Brancatella projects including:
- A warehouse at Brisbane Airport for Tomkins Builders,
- A new community centre at Inala for Wiley & Co,
- A new petrol station and restaurant complex at Doolandella for Hutchinson Builders, and
- A new energy precinct building at Kelvin Grove QUT for Hanson & Yuncken
Key Account Manager Brian Douglas said he enjoyed working with Brancatella.
“Brancatella’s admin team and site supervisors are organised, and do their best to plan for deliveries well in advance. They keep us informed about changes to site access and conditions, so we can make sure deliveries arrive safely and on time. We look forward to working together for many years to come,” said Brian.
By choosing Alex Fraser recycled products (over the last 12 months) Brancatella have:
- Reduced landfill by 12,500 tonnes
- Reduced truck traffic by 58 trucks
- Reduced carbon emissions by 82 tonnes
