Case Study – Burton Contractors

Burton Contractors is a multi-disciplined Civil Engineering Contractor approaching 200 employees and a fleet of more than 100 pieces of plant.


Winning major projects in roads and government works have made Burtons one of the fastest growing Civil Engineering Contractors in NSW.


Burton’s has adopted an innovative approach to earthmoving operations to save clients time and money. Off-site disposal of material is minimised by applying blending and other waste reduction practices. Soilco has had a long history of working with Burton Contractors, processing in excess of 22,000 m3 of site soil across several projects in Western Sydney. Processing site soil reduces disposal and produces fit for purpose growing media to be used in onsite landscaping projects.


Soilco’s recent project was to process 2000m3 of fine sandy clay loam. The soil has poor fertility and is slightly acidic, but was non saline and otherwise healthy.   Our Keestrack trommel was used to screen the soil to -20mm and then compost and amendments were added to meet chemical and physical specifications. The finished product is being stockpiled on site for use in landscaping as works progress.
