‘As a local company we’ve been supplying aggregate and road surfacing materials for over 60 years’ says Nigel Bennett, Managing Director. ‘No-one is more aware of the impact that road construction has on the environment and especially this beautiful island on which we have built our reputation
The general state of the road surfaces in the Isle of Wight is classified as poor to extremely poor by the Department for Transport, and scheduled for urgent replacement.
The traditional approach to restructuring a road is to scrape away and discard the old material and then replace it with a made up of newly quarried (known as first life) aggregate
Now that the Government has decided to completely renew the Island’s roads H. J. Bennett is ready with a greener solution.
H. J. Bennett's Eco-Base system allows the old material to be recycled and laid back down as a durable new surface, reducing energy usage and emissions.
The H. J. Bennett Eco-Base binder captures any contaminated components and binds them within the overall mix to render an end product that’s completely safe.
This means that there is very little waste and no need for expensive recycling treatments or landfill. The result is a new road sub base at a fraction of the cost and a considerably reduced carbon footprint.
H. J. Bennett's Wirtnet 50DC planner is only one of the various pieces of plant available for hire.
As with all Plant hire a competent and trained operator accompanies the planer along with waste away 6 ton lorry and driver.
Already H. J. Bennett's Eco-Base usages within County Council Roads, has begun with complete road base replacement for Furrlongs in Newport and Park Road in Ryde.
Commercial usages: Bembridge Harbour car park coverage and recovery of wetlands. Ryde School roadways, car parks for various Island public houses and multiple usages for the Utility Companies for both Gas and Water.
