Site cut and rock breaking

Site cut and rock breaking was needed on this job.  Rock is prevalent in many areas of Melbourne.  When we hit rock, we try to excavate it, following that we can break and hammer.

Hitting rock can cause delays and add cost to any project.  Where rock is known it is best to limit the amount of cut depth on the block.  This block had significant cut which was unavoidable however the rock didn’t hamper things too much.
