Concrete Removal in Tonbridge | The Manufacture of MOT Type 1 and Its Many Uses

WHW Services Ltd is an aggregate supplier and grab hire company with a reputation for delivering quality services at competitive prices, throughout the South East. With over 50 years of combined experience in the waste management industry, we specialise in a wide range of tasks. From demolition and rubbish clearance to muck away and concrete removal, we have the knowledge and experience to handle any task. No matter how big or complex.

In addition, we offer concrete crusher hire for domestic, commercial and industrial clients in and around the Tonbridge area.

This specialist machinery comes in particularly handy for the manufacture of MOT Type 1.

What is MOT Type 1?

When it comes to creating sub-bases, the Ministry of Transport (MOT) standardises 3 different aggregates: MOT Types 1, 2 and 3. While each classification is suitable for installing sub-bases, they all have slightly different properties. By using concrete crusher hire machinery, manufacturers break down materials like limestone, crushed concrete and granite into irregular pieces.

Using concrete recovered from concrete removals during demolitions and rubbish clearances in Tonbridge can help to lower the cost of production. However, these irregular pieces must comply with clause 803 of the Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works.

As a grab hire company and aggregate supplier, we deliver MOT Type 1 to construction companies and roadwork contractors throughout the local area.  

Thanks to its impressive load-bearing capacity, and the fact that it compacts easily, MOT Type 1 has a wide range of uses.

Some of these include:

  • Property Development – We don’t just engage in demolition works and rubbish clearance. We also play an important role in the construction of new buildings. Our grab hire services include excavation and muck away during earthworks processes, prior to construction. We also deliver building materials and MOT Type 1 for foundation installations on new builds and house extensions around Tonbridge
  • Patios and Driveways – As demolition and concrete removal experts, we can rip up existing driveways and patios in no time at all. Thanks to our concrete crusher hire machinery, we can recycle the concrete on site to create MOT Type 1, suitable for installing SUDS compliant sub-bases for new hard landscaping installations
  • Roads and Motorways – Roadwork contractors throughout the UK use MOT Type 1 because of its ability to withstand weighty loads. Pouring tarmac or asphalt on this kind of sub-base helps roads and motorways to handle frequent, heavy traffic. Some of the roads we travel along, when carrying out grab hire, concrete removal and rubbish clearances around Tonbridge, consist of materials we supplied
  • Public Pavements – Using concrete crusher hire machinery to create MOT Type 1 results in the perfect aggregate for paving contractors. Some building materials expand and contract along with fluctuating temperatures. A heavy rainfall followed by a frosty morning may, therefore, cause paving surfaces to crack. However, gaps between the irregular pieces of stone in MOT Type 1 allow for expansion and contraction to occur, without cracking the surface

WHW Services Ltd supplies and delivers a wide range of quality aggregates and building materials, including MOT Type 1. So, whether you’re looking to install a new driveway, undertake a new-build project or create a sub-base for a motorway, you can trust us to deliver exactly what you need to get the job done.

We can also perform the necessary earthworks, for your convenience.
