We are one of the foremost providers of construction materials in the UK. To help you find the most efficient use of our materials, we employ a team of in-house professional construction advisors including architects, engineers and sustainability experts to find the perfect structural solutions for you.
Some of the ways in which we can help:
1. Structural solutions
We are a concrete specialist and supply both ready mixed-concrete and precast concrete products. Our structural engineers, architects and sustainability advisors can work with our customers and their professional advisors to find the most efficient or appropriate concrete frame for any project.
2. Choice of concrete – our concrete mixer desk
We have devised a software programme with BRE which can compare the carbon footprint, Ecopoint score and likely Green Guide Rating of different concrete mixes, all of which can achieve the same strength. By altering the proportions of different constituent parts of the concrete mix on-screen, we can use the software to help clients to choose the most sustainable concrete for their purposes. We are also able to give advice on the likely Green Guide scores in BREEAM methodologies including the Code for Sustainable Homes for our concrete based elements.
3. Responsible sourcing
In March 2009, we became the first UK manufacturing company of any material to be awarded the Certificate for Responsible Sourcing under the BES6001 standard by BRE. This means that by simply using a concrete or asphalt made by us, you can achieve extra points in BREEAM methodologies including the Code for Sustainable Homes.
4. Construction process
Our architects are able to work with your professional teams to look at the cost and programme implications of using our innovations or products to streamline and value engineer the building process.
