We can supply and deliver a good selection of aggregates. Listed below are the materials most commonly used by our customers. Our secondary aggregates are recycled from muck away and tend to arrive in the form of crushed concrete, high quality screened top soil and road planings.

Building sand

Building sand is a finer texture than traditional sand, making it an extremely useful and cost-effective ingredient for construction materials. It is often used to make cement and mortar mixes. There are varying grades of building sand available with high or low clay and iron content.

Ballast

Ballast tends to be a mix of heavy, course materials such as crushed rock, slag, gravel, small stone and sand. It is often used in construction to make concrete for laying slabs and paving. Ballast provides volume and stability to foundations and structures. A Hyatt Contractors use grab hire vehicles for delivering ballast aggregate to clients, as well as removing it for a fast and effective muck away service.

Hardcore

Hardcore aggregate is commonly used as fill in building work. It consists of very solid, bulky materials such as coarsely crushed concrete and brick. Hardcore fill should be at least 15mm thick when layering. A Hyatt Contractors provide a range of useful plant hire tools, suitable for clients carrying out groundworks and laying down large amounts of hardcore aggregate.

Planings

Most customers generally use planings as bases for driveways and hard-standings such as car parks. This specialised type of aggregate is created using a cold milling machine to remove surface layers from roads and footpaths. Recycled tarmac planing is extremely compact and produces no dust. Our grab hire services include the fast and efficient delivery of planings

Topsoil

Topsoil is found beneath our feet every day. It is the upper surface layer of soil made up of organic matter, broken down rocks, clay and sand. Our customers regularly use topsoil for landscaping and garden improvements due to its rich nutrients. We can remove topsoil during our muck away services, as well as deliver topsoil on grab hire trucks quickly and efficiently to any location within the south east.
