Remote controlled robot helps Bronte Construction tackle a fragile challenge.
When Bronte Construction was bidding the Pelee Point Boardwalk Restoration Project, they knew they were signing themselves up for a challenge. Tasked with repairing a decade old boardwalk in the provincial park’s wetlands, Bronte’s obstacle was to figure out a way to deliver the necessary torque required to drive piles from a structure not strong enough to support the weight of the machines that could ordinarily deliver it.
“We put our heads together to come up with a creative solution”, said Mike Kelly Bronte’s Deep Foundation Superintendent
Bronte, in the end, teamed up with Creighton Rock Drill in Mississauga to see if they could both come up with a better solution. Collectively, they decided to deploy the Husqvarna DXR 140 remote-controlled demolition robot. Not only are these highly precise, maneuverable and stable machines able to work in the tightest and most dangerous job situations, but they’re also capable of delivering tremendous power at a fraction of the weight.
Bronte was able to operate and maneuver the machine directly from the boardwalk! it also had no difficulty driving the piles into the wetlands. It became clear to both Bronte and Creighton Rock that the possibilities of the DXR could only be limited by the imaginations of those using it.
“It was the perfect tool for the job. It’ll be really exciting to see what we’ll be able to do with it next” said Mike Kelly.
