Josh West (W&F Constructions)
As the project manager for the construction of Coral Cove Apartments, I found that dealing with a family company like Pilchers gave me great peace of mind. All the concrete required for the construction of the Coral Cove Apartments came from Pilcher Pre-mix concrete. They supplied it all from Block fill and 50mpa to exposed aggregate for paths. Pre-mix concrete supply was a big discussion point for the project team as the project was the biggest multi story development in Bowen requiring over 6,500 m3 of concrete with single day requirements up to 400 m3. We investigated mobile batching plants and other suppliers however Pilchers became the obvious choice when you take into account – 1 -Quality 2 -Proven ability 3 – Capacity. I would recommend Dan and the team to any project manager or builder.

My first dealing with Pilchers Concrete was as the Onsite Concrete Supervisor for Seymour Whyte during the Wilmington overpass and Highway realignment project north of Bowen in 2006. One of the major hurdles that we had to overcome was concrete supply as the site was 30 minutes from the Batch Plant. It shaped to be a challenging exercise, landing the concrete on site within the Main Roads Spec. The team at Pilchers proved to handle the large volumes of concrete with ease, whilst supplying their product well within the Specification required. I would highly recommend Pilchers Concrete to anyone requiring Pre-Mixed Concrete in the Bowen area.
