Customer Testimonial

"Hi, I just thought I would drop you a note to thank you for the speedy and very professional way your team handled what could have been a very difficult situation for us here at the Royal Oak Appleby, over the last couple of days. Your communication was excellent and I have no doubt you went out of your way to minimise the disruption here outside our pub, doing what you said you would do in the time scale you said you would achieve. We have had loads of disruption on this road over the last 24 months with different contractors none of which handled the situation anywhere near as  well as your team, so many thanks from all the 30 staff at the Royal Oak Appleby."Kyle & Jan MacRaeOwners

DSD and MacRebur

DSD are proud to be one of the first companies working with MacRebur and their revolutionary new road surface 'Plasmac'.Plasmac is an asphalt road material that uses recycled waste plastic instead of bitumen. It was developed by Toby McCartney and friends Nick Burnett and Gordon Reid, who all live nearby in Eaglesfield, Dumfries and Galloway.

Tests show Plasmac to be 60% stronger than the current British standard asphalt - increasing the road lifespan with less potholes and surface damage.

It also uses local waste plastics such as bottles and bags, which reduces carbon emissions and the impact on the environment.

Other benefits include lower raw material costs, reduced road maintenance costs and waste plastic disposal costs.

The idea caught the eye of Sir Richard Branson earlier this year as MacRebur were named winners of the Virgin Media Business Boom Competition.

DSD Construction supports 'Give a day to the City' Build Project

Last week, DSD Construction joined forces with other Cumbrian businesses to help the local community, creating a new riverside walk as part of the 'Give a Day to the City' initiative. This project was one of many that focus on bringing a new lease of life to spaces and buildings in Carlisle during October.

We donated and layed a bitmac path by the River Eden, which will provide a durable, reliable and smooth surface for years to come and make it accessible to all including wheelchair users. Our team worked all day on the path and we are delighted to have received some great feedback on our work already!

See below for photos from the day.

DSD's New Road Sweeper Available for Hire

DSD Construction have invested in a brand new Johnston road sweeper. The road sweeper will assist in the ever-growing planning operation and will be available for hire.

Information:

  • Payload Capacity: 6 tonnes
  • Clean Water Tank Capacity: 1572 litres
  • Chassis GVM: 13-15 tonnes
  • Maximum Swept Width: 3.6m
  • Auxiliary Fuel Tank: 190 litres

Benefits of the Johnston VT651 Road Sweeper:

  • Operational Performance - designed to fit a wide range of chassis models to suit specific operational requirements, confident that the sweeper will provide the power and performance to complete the task.
  • Productivity -the VT651 provides the ideal balance between performance and environmental impact, with applications to suit a full range of sweeping environments.
  • Environmental Impact - low fuel consumption is a key attribute in reducing carbon footprint and CO2 emissions. With the mechanical drive systems running at maximum efficiency, the fuel consumption of the auxiliary engine is the lowest in its class with 3.3 litres per hour at 1200 rpm.
  • Hydrostatic Drive - the  gearbox is powered by the main  truck chassis engine and enables infinitely variable forward speed control. Designed specifically for road sweeping, the hydro-drive allows for cruise control and travel speeds up to 40 kph in hydrostatic drive, reducing the need to de-select hydrostatic drive when travelling short distances.
If you would like to know more about hiring the VT651 Road Sweeper, please get in touch by calling: 01946 551 544 (Whitehaven), 01228 594 969 (Carlisle) or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
