Quarry Planning

Bringing Expertise & Precision to Exploration, Estimation & Excavation

Quarry planning comes with a range of problems like budget limitations and timeline, quarry vicinity, environmental impact etc. that need to be addressed in order to smoothly meet end project goal.

If the quarrying is being done close to a public place, all the permissions required for it should be procured well before the project starts to avoid litigations. If a quarry needs to be excavated on top of a hill, the operational costs and resources, as well as the direction of quarrying, need to be planned in advance to avoid idle time on site. In both cases, a sturdy emergency plan needs to be in place, in case something goes wrong on the site.

Three golden rules of quarry planning

Having encountered some of the trickiest quarry planning situations, Uttam Blastech has formulated three best ways to avoid losses during quarrying operations,

– Quarry is as close as possible to the place of consumption 

– Quarry is as far as possible from a public place

– Machines are always working on site

In simple words, quarry planning requires expertise as well as experience. Uttam Blastech will ensure that the current plan for your project doesn’t just carry out smooth operations or cut costs but also benefit your overall business.
