Progressive Screed Wagon

The project team used the Progressive screed pump lorry to deliver waste, carbon and time savings on a tightly constrained site.

This lorry carries all materials it needs to site, with an integral screed pump to mix and deliver 10m3 screed without any separate deliveries or storage required on site.

There are several benefits of using this which are:

  • Waste – Saved 44.5 tonnes of waste screed and reduced packaging waste. Screed mixes are measured by a computer on the vehicle. This means there is zero wastage caused and that the quality of the screed can be guaranteed. As the vehicle can carry 17 tonnes of sand this reduces the amount of packaging created by approximately 20 tonne bags/pallets per day. With the screed lorry, the only waste created is 3 per pallets per week (dependent of quantities) with the majority of companies taking back pallets when they next deliver.
  • Carbon – Saved 0.3tonnes CO2e through reduced deliveries.
  • Time – Using two gangs the use of the lorry can allow in excess of 250m2 screed to be poured in a day ​compared to approximately 80m2 in traditional methods.
  • Quality – The onboard computer in the lorry mixes the screed, ensuring consistent quality.
  • H&S – Manual handling is completely removed from the process as all of the mixing process is completed by the vehicle.
