PCA Predict

Amtico International

For PCA Predict in Worcester, the need to choose new flooring came earlier than expected. Contemporary, sleek, practical and durable were the keywords for this flooring project. After a false start with the cork floor, Office Manager Philippa Jaine was keen to achieve a contemporary look, but one that would also be able to cope with the footfall and, most importantly, would cause minimum disruption to the staff during installation. Combining the main entrance and breakout area, the total flooring space measured 95m2.

Acoustic fencing provides peace and quiet at a redeveloped residential area in London

Jacksons Fencing

A housing estate in North London was recently redeveloped to provide more houses and flats to cope with the ever growing demand in the capital. Because the estate is near to a busy road and behind many shops, restaurants and light industrial properties, an acoustic barrier was required to mitigate the noise of deliveries, traffic and general day-to-day noise. To achieve the desired reduction in noise, we supplied 135 metres of 6m high Jakoustic® Reflective fencing to run alongside the estate behind the adjacent commercial properties.

Iraq, Afghanistan & Gulf War Memorial - Portland Stone


The memorial to the dead in the Iraq, Afghanistan and Gulf conflicts was produced in Jordans Basebed Portland Stone and is composed of 10 blocks, the largest of which weighed 7000kg each. In fact they were so heavy that stoneCIRCLE's lifting equipment could not cope with them and we had to buy in a 15 tonne crane to help with the job. The crane now makes life much easier for the team that unloads the delivery lorries. The stone is smooth and lettered on the back and front but rough hewn on the other 2 sides.

SuDS Scheme - Keighley West Yorkshire

GreenBlue Urban Ltd

To maximise the value of the tree planting,the pits were used as storm water attenuation and treatment pits, taking water from the carriageway, passing it through a stone layer on the top of the tree pit and then filtering it down through the Arborsoil Hydro soil mix provided for the root growth. The water then transferred through a clean stone layer to an underdrain to a storm water drain. This method of conveyance gives an acceptable level of pollutant removal and slows the water down so that the existing drainage network can cope with the increasingly violent storm events.

Liquid gutter liner applied to metal gutter in Glasgow

Liquasil Ltd

This project involved sealing a metal gutter in Glasgow. Leaks were present at most of the steel profile joints and rust was evident throughout. Heavy rust and soiling was first removed and then the entire length of the gutter was treated with Liquasil's corrosion primer, to prevent further rusting. Once cured, Liquasil Non Sag Sealer was applied to all joints. Non Sag Sealer has 1400% elasticity, to cope with extreme thermal movement. The whole gutter was then coated with Liquasil One to form a seamless and leak-free gutter lining.

One special requirement was that the stone had to replicate that of an post office in Whitney, Oxfordshire, which the architectural design of the new building would also broadly follow.

GYPSOL Classic used in Code 6 development


The designer required a screed which could offer a rapid response to changes in the air temperature within the house both in terms of heating and cooling. Additionally it had to offer a thin section to reduce material use and to help reduce the physical mass of screed that had to be warmed. This was to help with achieving efficiency with the ground source heat pump and allow the unit to heat the screed at very low temperatures. It also required a screed that could be easily placed at both ground and first floor. Gypsol Classic was the perfect solution.

Guthrie Douglas

The control of light and heat were central to the building's sustainability strategy. Tensioned shading systems were specified on the more challenging glazed structures due to their ability to be discrete and elegant whilst also strong enough to cope with extreme temperatures under the intense desert sun. Guthrie Douglas’ TESS™ 140 systems were installed in a very tight space on the roof glazing over the main sports hall. Being involved in the project from a very early stage meant we could integrate our systems into the complex surrounding structure to the point that they are invisible when retracted.
