Alamanda College, Point Cook

Discover the Alamanda College Project

Alamanda College enlisted our services to enhance their outdoor spaces by mulching their playground and the areas between portable classrooms. Using our state-of-the-art blower truck, we efficiently spread 75m³ of Softfall Mulch in the playground and 505m³ of Mossrock 12mm Mulch between the portables.

To maximise efficiency and minimise disruption to the school’s activities, we implemented a strategic combination of our blower and slinger trucks. The blower truck was stationed on-site with a hose for precise application, eliminating the need for repeated trips with wheelbarrows. And when the blower truck required refilling with mulch, our slinger truck swiftly delivered mulch directly into the blower unit to maintain a seamless, uninterrupted operation.

This innovative approach allowed us to complete the installation of our Mossrock Mulch in just three days, significantly reducing the time compared to conventional methods. Our commitment to delivering swift and efficient solutions tailored to our clients’ needs is exemplified by our ability to complete complex projects with minimal disruption.
