Hire Here Dublin Irish Construction News in Brief May 2016

Our round up of interesting articles including the latest Ulster Bank Construction Purchasing Managers’ Report and an App for building sites

Ulster Bank Construction Purchasing Managers’ Report April 2016

The latest Ulster Bank Construction Purchasing Managers’ Report has been released this week.  While there has been a decline in the pace of growth from the high figures in February, new orders and employment are still rising but at a slower rate.

Commenting on the survey, Simon Barry, Chief Economist Republic of Ireland at Ulster Bank, noted that: “Irish construction activity continues to grow at a solid, albeit slower, pace according to the latest results.  Sentiment in April rose to its second-highest level in the survey’s history as more than two-thirds of respondents anticipates further gains in activity in the coming twelve months.”

Three categories of construction are included in the survey. These are housing, commercial and civil engineering.   Of the three, civil engineering performed the worst, with activity rising at the slowest pace.  Housing activity continued to grow at the sharpest pace.

In the categories which had a growth in activities, this growth was linked to the signing of new contracts and the subsequent hiring of new staff for these contracts.

There was a noted reduction in the use of sub-contractors In the Irish Construction Industry this month and a decline in the availability of sub-contractors.

The United States Department of Labour are running their construction safety campaign this week.  Its called Stand Down and it aims to prevent construction fatalities and falls.

Apps for the Construction Industry

Heres a great App we found, which calculates how much concrete and rebar are needed for a job. Called Fast Concrete Pad Calculator and available on ITunes, this handy App calculates amount concrete and rebar needed and the costs as well as waste and additional costs.  You can then email the information to yourself or to a contractor.

How To Use A Lawn Aerator

Using a Lawn Aerator 6 Simple Steps

Step 1 Do I need to use a lawn aerator?

  1. Does water not soak through your lawn?
  2. Is your grass not looking its best, with a lot of thatch or heavy organic matter?
  3. Does your lawn get heavy use, ie a lot of foot traffic?

If you answered yes, then your lawn will benefit from using a lawn aerator. Just make sure that you have not seeded the lawn in the last year.

Step 2 Before you aerate the lawn

A few days before you intend to aerate the lawn, water the grass.  This will help the machine as it is best to use it on soft turf.

Step 3 Choose the right tines for the type of aeration you need

If you have too much thatch in your grass, put the hollow core tines on the machine. These will pull up plugs of thatch and soil and give the grass room to breathe

If you lawn is too compacted and water cannot soak through, put the solid spike tines on the machine.  This will improve drainage by loosening the soil and will allow the root system to grow.

Step 4 Using the machine

Use the lawn aerator the same way as a lawn mower.  Make sure to overlap the wheel footprint.  It is best to make multiple passes over an area as the machine will only cover a small area of the grass on each pass.

Step 5 What to do with the soil plugs

If you are use the hollow core tines the machine will leave the soil plugs on the grass after each pass.  If you want to remove them, don’t run over them with the machine wheels.  The plugs may be left on the lawn after aeration or they can be removed and put in a compost bin. Either way they break down after about 2 weeks.

Step 6 After aerating your lawn

Give your lawn a good feed of fertilizer and water.
An optional extra is to spread sand over the lawn to fill in the holes.
