You’ll also need an approximate average depth.

Use a dipstick to test for the deepest point and use that for a worst case volumetric calculation.

Also, the type of filling material you adopt will affect your volume due to different properties - laterite, sharp, white filling sand etc. depending on what’s available in Isolo.

Search the thread very well for density factors to use. Someone dropped those in the past.

Tims4real2002:
Hello everyone,

I want to fill a plot of land 138 by 48 feets which is swampy at Ago palace in Lagos. How many tippers of filling sands can be able to fill it with a 20 cubics truck?

Can someone pls help with ideas?

Thanks,

Tims.

Boss sorry for the unfortunate experience you have had in your project.

How I handle sites prone to loss of materials via stealing.

If it is almost impossible to take inventory of materials at my project site, I usually adopt the JUST IN TIME approach where I make payment to vendors on required materials and liaise with them to only deliver the quantity needed for a particular day.
Usually I use bike men for such arrangement, they deliver quantities of rods,binding wire,cement, wood needed for the day, that way we do not store anything on site.

Sounds nice.. You know the problem with Just-in-time method of production It actually wastes TIME.

One disappointment in your "supply chain" and the whole work for the day or for the week is "f**ked up".

The only other option is to have 2 - 3 different suppliers for same item. But there's nothing like keeping inventory in suppy chain management!!!
