When you’re managing a large construction project, you know that lost time equals lost money. You probably also know that one of the best ways to save time is to have the right tools in place exactly when you need them. Of course this is easier said than done, especially when you’re working in a location with no easy access to the work site.
Delays moving equipment into position can ruin a construction timeline and cause problems to ripple throughout the entire project. And if you’re working in an environmentally sensitive area like a wetland, you can’t bulldoze your way to the work site without causing tremendous damage that could result in hefty fines or remediation work mandated by local, state, or federal governments.
So when you’re planning a project, it’s important to consider how you’ll quickly and efficiently move workers and heavy equipment to the work site, possibly through environmentally sensitive areas.
Digging Mats Support Heavy Machinery
In this scenario, digging mats are the ideal choice for your ground protection plan. They allow heavy machinery, tracked vehicles, and your crew to move and work above the ground so they don’t sink into wet earth and cause damage to sensitive environments.
Most digging mats are made out of solid wood planks, so they’re strong enough to support the tremendous weight of the cranes, excavators, and trucks you’ll use everyday. And because the weight of your large equipment will be spread out over an interconnected group of digging mats, their tires and tracks won’t sink into or tear up the ground.
With a set of digging mats, you’ll be able to create a series of temporary roadways your workers and equipment can traverse on their way to and from the worksite. And once you’ve finished your job, you simply pull the roadway up behind you and pack it away with the rest of your tools.
