Evening all

I do a fair bit of paving and have obviously laid the high kerb before but i just cant work out how much i would get through in a day.

We have circa 135LM to do on a drive we are quoting. Mainly straight and slightly down hill in places.

What are your thoughts? Not looking for someone to price the job for me just another opinion.

Cheers

I think the laying is the quickest part. It's the mixing, setting out and screeding the bed that takes the time.
Once that's achieved you should easily bang out 8-10 lm an hour plus time for haunching.

I would allow at least 3 days for 2 men with an already prepared concrete race possibly more when you consider the stacking out of the kerbs.

sounds about right LC
I would say depending on site etc that it might take 2 men 3 days
1 knocking up and loading out
the other setting out and laying

When you say screed out. What do you mean. I bed out as i lay them.

AS the drives a decent size i was intending on having 4 of us on it so we dont get stuck there for to long. Two skilled and two labourers. I was going to allow 3 days for us. But at 600 a day the cost mount up pretty quickly

If you screed the bed its just a matter of plonking the kerbs down. Much easier than bashing them into a windrow of concrete where bashing a kerb in tends to alter the one next to it.

I lay a semi dry concrete mix and screed around 25mm of a semi dry sand/cement mix on top.
Level two  paving blocks a screeding bars (about 3m) length apart to form spot levels remove them and screed to the spots. 30 kerbs laid in no time.
Much easier to maintain levels particularly when dealing with curves and changing levels.

Funnily enough I lay long runs of key kerbs in more or less the same way Mark.
I don't use the lean mix mortar and I'll use a couple of 300mm screed tubes so that when the kerbs are laid I can wet up the excess bed and haunch up.
When working on slopes I'll start from the bottom and work up to stop any of the kerbs from spacing out at the top.

I can screed and lay about 180 units in a day. One man knocking up and me laying buttering up each one then my lad follows up pointing and haunching.

Yep, screed the concrete and lay away, then with a bit of timber settle them down into the bed. Sorted :)
