Construction: Today & Tomorrow

We are OPEN for business during this Covid-19 shut down period. Some service levels may be reduced in some areas but we are working as hard as ever!
Construction: Today & Tomorrow

As a waste and site services broker, we work with site managers regularly and organise their waste and welfare needs. Site Solutions provide all areas of site services, the most common on a site manager's 'shopping list' that we arrange and deliver are:

  • Skip hire
  • Grab and tipper lorry hire
  • Portaloos
  • Welfare units
  • Site containers

With this in mind, we are going back in time to review the tools, practices and machinery used over the years to see how the construction industry has developed across the decades.

The swinging sixties

Well known and documented as a time of love and peace, the sixties were also renowned for a period of growth and development for the construction industry. Heavy duty equipment and lorries were introduced to remove waste off sites and highways. Existing heavy duty construction equipment also increased in size and became able to carry hundreds of tonnes.

70's & 80's

During the next few decades more focus was given on the impact machinery had on the environment and enhancing safety measures including reducing noise levels, emissions and making the operation of equipment easier for the user. The 80's sparked the beginning of a new era in making all equipment used on site safer, more durable and more efficient.


Environmental Laws became prominent during this decade, having a significant impact on the construction industry. New laws forced manufacturers to adapt their practices and create cleaner, safer and more efficient machinery.

Today and Tomorrow

Today, construction companies hire equipment as and when needed rather than purchasing - it makes better business sense when working in numerous locations and saves having to transport a wide range of heavy-duty machinery and requiring a wide range of equipment.

The revolutionary introduction of automated machinery, featuring sensors and solar power which needs limited human effort is a significant technological step for the future of the industry.

The construction industry has come a long way and Site Solutions continue to be ahead of the game with the newest innovations in waste handling - this is of course our job as a broker! Our bread and butter continues to be nationwide skip hire and site services and when the day comes that robots can deliver your skips across the country, we will embrace it and find the best robots available!
