Area Required to Deliver Building Materials

Area Required to Deliver Building Materials

The material will be delivered on Cleary trucks and will be unloaded by the driver. The Purchaser is responsible for providing adequate semi truck and crew truck access to the construction site. The Purchaser is also responsible for furnishing a clean level site, free of all underground obstructions and Site Layout. The Purchaser shall verify all property lines and obtain all necessary local permits

When the building materials are delivered to the construction site you must have enough area for the actual building and the building materials. All labor standards are based upon material being unloaded within 75′ of building site.
Example:A 60′ x 100′ building would need approximately 22′ in width x 60′ in length area for the building materials. This area will allow for enough room for storage of the building materials

Is the building site clear of all obstructions? Access must be provided to the construction site for delivery of materials. The Cleary transportation department will need accurate information for jobsites that will qualify. The driver will need enough room to be able to unhook from the trailer and maneuver around freely to both sides of the trailer to begin unloading (50’ minimum width & 80’-90’ minimum length). The perfect site would allow the semi to move around both sides of the trailer, on a level site, to unload building materials on both sides of the jobsite. Please making sure all obstacles that could be in the way to access the unloading area are removed or moved prior to delivery i.e. trees, fences/posts, portable and stationary basketball hoops etc.

Other items to consider about your site

Are there any water lines etc. buried within the building site? The lines should be staked or marked. Are there any power lines or telephone lines buried within or running over the building site? The lines must be marked if underground. For electric call diggers hotline. If underground lines or utilities interfere with digging for foundations, these items will need to be relocated.

Are there any roads or bridges leading to the building site which do not allow passage of vehicles weighing 32 tons? Cleary will need to know this information.
