Before land is reclaimed or reprofiled, it’s often necessary or useful to extract aggregates, such as crushed stone, gravel and sand. In the majority of cases, these aggregates can be re-used in the project to help with land restoration and reprofiling.
Where it’s not appropriate for the aggregates to be used on site, they can be recycled for use in other construction projects or sold on the open market.
We have a wealth of experience in aggregate extraction, crushing and screening, with mobile plant and equipment that deliver high levels of efficiency and productivity. All our aggregates are processed in compliance with EU regulations and carry CE marking.
Types of Aggregate
Ingebourne Valley offers a wide variety of aggregates to suit our customers’ needs:
These products are obtained by mining rock and breaking it down to a preferred size. In the case of manufactured sand, the product is obtained by crushing rock to the selected shape or texture, ensuring product and project specifications are met. Sources of crushed stone can be igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic.
Gravel deposits are produced through a natural process of weathering and erosion. It can be used for roads, for concrete manufacturing, or for decorative purposes.
Sand occurs naturally and is composed of fine rock material and mineral particles. Its composition is variable depending on the source. It can be used for roads, for concrete manufacturing, or sanitation.
