Specialist Site Services have assisted in the establishment and construction of various tunnel projects and mine sites throughout Australia. Portal constructions can include drilling and placement of canopy tubing and consolidation grouting, prior to the commencement of mining activities.
Rockbolts, shotcrete and mesh are applied to stabilise the roof and ribs including the erection of steel sets for reinforcing soft strata.
SSS also supply and erect steel sets to further stabilise bad strata in the underground environment. These are designed and fabricated in various forms such as 250 Universal Beams or reinforced Lattice Guarders. They are almost always erected on site and immediately adjacent to the work area. They are then lifted and bolted in to place prior to being structurally sprayed in place with shotcrete
