“Our selection is not based on price alone, we also considered the safety & saving aspects. The Smart foundations allow quick replacement of items with no further effort required to the base, (providing a significant cost benefit in replacing the damaged item by re-using the existing footing) and reduces risk of injury to employees by reducing time spent on traffic islands exposed to traffic.” MAIN ROADS DEPT WESTERN AUSTRALIA
All MRWA signage can now be secured using CHS posts and Smart Sustainable Foundations
Developments remain in pristine condition year after year and you eradicate resource and capital intensive maintenance practices by re-using foundations impact after impact, year after year. No expensive traffic management, no risks or costs.
Substantially improve safety and effectiveness of installing & maintaining infrastructure. Cleaner , safer roads without the risks. Every job is on-time, on-budget
Quite simple - instead of replacing valuable concrete foundations, you install a ground socket made from a Smart self-healing plastic that protects the surrounding foundations impact after impact, year after year. Infrastructure self-locks in ground socket remaining secure year after year, and can only be removed using tools provided.
Using traditional methods provides no future benefit. MRWA estimates that replacing just 1 sign-post a week using traditional methods costs a whopping $500,000.00 over the life of a development (not including traffic management, possible injury to workers or underground services, tipping fees and the multitude of other variables that can ruin any budget). $25 is a low cost investment for a lifetime of savings
As Traditional developments continue to decline, Smart developments grow increasingly efficient. "Efficiency in infrastructure investment must form a central focus for Australia's governments, as they seek to close the infrastructure gap. After all, each dollar saved by eliminating cost overruns and inefficiencies can be invested in new, productive infrastructure". Options for Reform Report
