Concrete Shuttering

Concrete Shuttering

Sundeala

A case study was carried out to determine the viability of utilising our HD board as Concrete Shuttering. The main benefits being its eco-friendly of course however a major consideration for the current shuttering products is their disposal once the concrete is set. As it considered contaminated any wood product used in this application is generally put in the skip. Any of our boards can be left in the ground to compost down as there are no added formaldehyde or bitumen-based adhesives, so it is safe to be let in the ground. It’s also very flexible over distance so can be used to create some amazing curves to any concrete base.This case study went extremely well and the builder carrying out the work reported back saying it was very easy to install and an amazing product all round.

J&P was approached to deliver because of the company’s expertise in working with precast concrete.

Coloured concrete for skate park redevelopment

Coloured concrete for skate park redevelopment

Tarmac

Cann Hall Skate Park in Waltham Forest, East London had been closed after the steel frame and plywood structure had fallen into disrepair. A refurbishment proposal was put together with funding from the Council’s Greenspace department, government funding secured by the Council’s youth service team and a donation from the local police Safer Neighbourhood Team. The designer chose TOPTINT coloured concrete as part of a high contrast design that would emphasise the bold geometric shapes used. Available in a wide range of colours, TOPTINT would deliver the smooth, durable finish required for the skate park surface in the bright, contrasting colours that the designer was looking for.TOPTINT coloured concretes use liquid colour pigment which is UV stable meaning that the colour will not degrade over time from natural sunlight. Also, because this liquid pigment is evenly mixed throughout the concrete, the colour resists surface wear, even in busy locations like skate parks.Read the full story at: https://tarmac.com/case-studies/coloured-concrete-for-london-skate-park/

Use of Cemfree concrete for temporary slab piles at Newman St, Westminster

Use of Cemfree concrete for temporary slab piles at Newman St, Westminster

PUDLO Waterproof Systems & Cemfree Zero-Cement Concrete, part of the DB Group Ltd

Murphy Ground Engineering installed 750mmand 880mm cased rotary piles up to 34.0m toform a triple storey basement secant wall andbearing piles for a new Hotel development inWestminster. As part of the top downconstruction methodology and due to limitedperipheral space, a temporary slab wasdesigned to accommodate construction plantduring the bulk dig and spoil removal.Due to the loadings on the temporary slab the design required 6# 880mm piles to 25.0m depth to provide support to the slab. As these piles are temporary works in design the use of Cemfree concrete was proposed, although with specific structural requirements it was imperative for the Cemfree concrete to achieve 40N strength at 56 days as well as perform to the required piling concrete characteristics as would be expected. A total of 95m3 of “C32/40” Cemfree concrete was supplied over a period of 4 days to construct the temporary works piles using temp cased rotary bored methodology.The use of Cemfree at Newman St was aligned with MGE involvement in the LOCOWAG project led by DB Group (Holdings) Limited (DBG). The project is government funded via the Innovate UK scheme and runs from November 2020 to November 2022.
