Small tools are necessary for all sorts of Dartford-based jobs. At Rhinos, we provide all kinds of small tools to our clients – and we’re proud to say that we have many recurring customers who come back to us time after time for all of their small tool needs.
Our pumps, for example, are top quality. Submersible pumps from Rhinos are designed for site drainage, tackling problems in flooded areas and more, while our three inch diaphragm water pump is also a popular choice. Elsewhere in our small tools range you’ll find surveying equipment such as cable avoidance tools. This high performance device comes in handy at the pre-excavation survey point, and is often essential from a health and safety point of view.
And for those who are going to be working out on the roads, tools like road barriers and road cones come in handy for complying with the obligations placed on you by the New Roads and Streets Act 1991. In short, we’ve got everything you could possibly need for your Dartford job!
There’s no denying it: working in construction means that you often simply have to invest in larger tools which help you to achieve your goals. There are lots of larger tools available in the Rhinos fleet, and they’ve all been selected with the intention of moving a construction process swiftly along.
If you need compaction tools, for example, our range of rollers could help. We’ve got both vibrating and non-vibrating options in our fleet, so there’ll be something to suit all requirements. Our 80 tandem roller, which was made by leading brand BOMAG, comes with dual drum vibrating rollers and a weight of 1.6 tonnes. For those who need something a little heavier, meanwhile, the 120 tandem roller from BOMAG offers a weight of 2.5 tonnes and a height to ROPS frame of 2.47 metres.
Elsewhere in our fleet, small yet powerful devices like air tools can help you achieve all sorts of goals thanks to their pneumatic skills. Rock drills from Hilti provide everything from right hand rotation to a 40mm capacity in concrete, which gives it an edge on some market alternatives. And if you’re planning to remove steel coatings, don’t forget to look into our single head handheld scabbler.
The ongoing regeneration project earmarked for Dartford town centre is developing at a steady pace.
It has been announced that Muse Developments, who were named as the preferred bidder back in late 2017, are now primed to get started with the development. They will begin by planning a new cinema, extra commercial space for hospitality businesses, up to 140 new homes, and more.
The project, which is focused on the Westgate area and is being completed in conjunction with Homes England and Dartford Borough Council, will also see a hotel and a public square. A GP surgery or health centre may also be opened, although discussions are still ongoing.
In total, the project is expected to cost £75 million to complete.
Describing the relationship between the developers and Dartford Council, John Robinson – from Muse Developments – said: “It has been a pleasure working with them and Homes England over the last six months and we are delighted to have reached this key milestone.”
Construction engineering specialist Keltbray, are to deliver the groundworks for the first stage of this huge phased undertaking. Phase 1A will see the construction of 61 new homes close to the railway station. This initial phase will include 61 new homes, a children’s play area and an orchard walk. The whole project will eventually cost £1 billion, and building further down the line will include a new town centre and several community spaces. All of the architecture will be in keeping with the style of this local conservation area, with features such as timber effects and flint gabions. Upgrades to community amenities, and improved railway and transport facilities are also planned.
PCRL, are creating the new Essex homes, and director and founder Ken Dytor said: “We are proud to announce that work has commenced on the first phase of Purfleet-on-Thames’ regeneration.
