Picton Civil has taken over the operations side of JW Cross & Sons. Combined the businesses have been in the earthmoving and plant hire business in the Bunbury region of Western Australia since 1968. The 4 Cross brothers all play an active roll in the day to day running of all their business’s and together have vast experience in the industry. Picton Civil was part of the E & G Expansion Project at the Worsley Alumina Site. Picton Civil was also involved in general & construction camp site works, road works and work on the new power house at the BHP Billiton site.
Picton Civil now specialises in civil earthworks, wet & dry plant hire, demolition and asbestos removal. We provide services to a wide range of clientele; from individuals and small business to large scale industry and mining projects. Our customer focused staff can cater for individual requirements giving a high quality of service and workmanship. With our large diverse fleet of quality machinery we are able to provide for a great variety of tasks to all of our customers. These include such work as site preparations, demolitions, drainage, asbestos removal, trenching, hard stand construction, pathways, construction & hot mixing carparks and roads, dam building or cleaning, house pads, gravel, hotmix or limestone driveways, test hole digging, delivery of materials, environmental rehabilitation and work to individual specifications or scope of works.
Picton Civil maintain a high level of safety standards in our work places. This is important as much of our work is carried out in areas where high standards of accreditation are required like minesites. All our plant operators are accredited with national operator certificates of competency and white cards. All employees are screened and we have an ongoing training program. We actively support a policy of zero harm in the workplace.
We understand the effects our work may have on the environment and we take every precaution to make certain our employees work within legislative guidelines. We endeavour to minimise all environmental impact on our work sites. The company is always looking at ways to recycle materials and to use these when appropriate. One area of recycling is our crushed concrete product and recycled screened sand.
Peel Resource Recovery has a transfer station located in Munday Ave, on Pinjarra Industrial Estate. The transfer station has been open since July 2011. Waste from the Peel District is dropped, then sorted, recycled and transferred to our Australind land fill site. Included within PRR is Cross Resource Management.
Cross Resource Management operates a land fill site, which includes a range of operations such as; sand quarrying, inert waste backfilling, acid sulphate soil remediation plus sand, concrete and brick recycling. The site is being progressively rehabilitated and landscaped.
Both the transfer station in Pinjarra & the landfill site in Australind specialise in recycling a high percentage of the waste accepted in an enviromentally friendly manner. The recycled products such as crushed concrete & fill sand are reused in the local enviroment, therefore minimising landfill usage.
