Road construction and maintenance has been our core business for over 20 years. We have an experienced team of skilled operators and ground staff who work on a wide variety of projects, ranging from small subdivisions to major highway construction. This work involves elements of all services provided by AWC including:
- road rehabilitation
- underground services
- concrete structures
- shoulders and verges
Subdivision constructions are a large part of our business. We have a long and successful track record in constructing residential, rural and industrial subdivisions. These range in size from single lot subdivisions to multi stage developments and involve elements of all the services we provide (including road construction, earthworks, underground services and concrete structures).
AWC is the only company in Tasmania with a continuous presence that can offer road rehabilitation through the stabilisation or modification of subgrades and pavement gravels using our Caterpillar RM300s – the only two reclaimers based in Tasmania.
The reclaiming process is a method of repaving roads which is more environmentally efficient and provides a cost saving to the client. It works by taking unsuitable pavement material and introducing additional material, such as cement, lime, gravels, blended cements, bitumen or other chemicals, to improve the grading or physical properties of the original material. The end product is a quality, environmentally efficient material that is significantly improved from the original material. This service has become much sought after, particularly by local municipalities.
Our road rehabilitation services include:
- lime stabilisation
- cement stabilisation
- granular stabilisation
- reclamation/milling of existing pavements.
