Most large scale construction projects in downtown settings lack the room necessary to stockpile large quantities of equipment or materials needed to get the job done.  This makes the utilization of the space that does exist vital in the planning of every job task. This is certainly the case with 1 South Market, a new high-rise residential tower being built in downtown San Jose.

One of the tasks that Conco had to undertake on this project was to backfill 2,900 tons of crushed rock in three 8-hour days.  With the congestion of a busy worksite, there was no margin for error as delays in placing the material would impact many other job tasks.

In order to deliver the crushed rock within these constraints, Conco brought in its Direct Feed trailer  which allows a Superdump, Transfer, End Dump or 10-Wheeler to unload its contents directly into the hopper attached to the trailer.  Material is then fed from the hopper onto one of Conco’s Telebelts.  The Telebelt then places the material directly to the point of placement.  With this system, there is no need to stockpile material on the jobsite and handle it twice via a loader or bobcat.  It is also quicker and less labor intensive than using a loader, as the material is discharged directly from the back of a truck.
