Earlier this month, we supplied Strike early high strength concrete to the GMEX convention centre in Manchester which has been converted into a 1000 patient Nightingale hospital. We're delighted to be contributing to so many NHS focused projects at this challenging time, and we are proud of the teams involved in supplying the materials to such a tight deadline.
Chester plant re-opening to supply NHS Nightingale
We recently re-opened our temporarily closed Chester plant to supply an urgent requirement of over 85m3 of high early strength Strike concrete to the Deeside Leisure Centre near Queensferry. This was used in order to convert the facility into a 250 patient Nightingale hospital to aid the NHSfight against coronavirus. The delivery of the concrete required extensive, rapid planning, including securing supplies of raw materials,and arranging staff and drivers. A great effort by all involved to meet such a challenging, tight deadline!
