Utilising precast concrete constructed in an offsite environment has proven to be a beneficial alternative over traditional insitu methods of casting

the construction industry, and our experience and reputation led to us being chosen by Weston Homes for this unique and exciting renovation project. The required soffit was able to be produced using our adjustable pallet moulding system, which also acted as the formwork for each storey height flight. Projecting starter bars were cast into the treads of the stair for tying into the precast wall reinforcement. The formwork for the walls was then erected on the flights and extensively propped prior to the concrete pour.

BLANCO’s SUBLINE is simply sublime

BLANCO’s SUBLINE sink portfolio has been developed to mix exceptional designs with practicality. Available in a range of models and colours, the SUBLINE sink in SILGRANIT®

PuraDur® combines a

strong sink surface with creativity in the working space. Homeowners and designers can select a small bowl, such as

BLANCO’s SUBLINE 160-U, to act as a side bowl alongside a larger main one, such as the SUBLINE 700-U, while the SILGRANIT® PuraDur®

material will ensure a seamless blend between the two. Gerflor floorings complete leisure centre

The completion of a multi-million pound new leisure centre ‘kitted-out’ with no less than five high performance Gerflor flooring products, has boosted the leisure offering available to a rural community in the north of the Isle of Axholme, North Lincolnshire.

A simple to maintain surface was an important characteristic for the multi-function fitness studio flooring enabling it to be quickly cleaned. Meeting this brief with ease was Gerflor’s Taraflex®

Comfort in wood-

effect design ‘Oak’. Being a multi-use space, a hardwearing surface was needed, but not a clinical feel or look.

end quality, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and safety into consideration. Our precast components are

manufactured offsite in an enclosed casting environment, avoiding delays due to inclement weather conditions. They are developed to be extremely structurally efficient, and supplied to an exact build fit and specification, accelerating the build process. Insitu moulds generally need to be left in place for weeks to allow the concrete to cast.

Precast components allow immediate site and finishing access following installation, providing a safe and solid footing and reducing delays for follow on trades. Components can also be delivered to site as required in the build process ensuring that onsite storage is not an issue when space is at a premium. In this case, the two four metre diameter staircase flights each weighing over 11 tonnes, were delivered to site on a specialist low loader accompanied by a support vehicle. They were also installed in one day by one of our professional fixing teams, minimising disruption on site and providing an immediate access to the upper levels for other trades.

On the level with Norcros Adhesives

Norcros Adhesives is adding a new leveller to its already comprehensive range. Norcros Pro AF Low Prep Self Smoothing Levelling Compound is an ammonia and latex-free, two-part levelling compound. It is suitable for use on most substrates without the need for priming. Norcros Pro AF Leveller has been specially formulated for use over old adhesive residues including bitumen,

historically a problematic material to bond to. There is no need to prime or remove firmly bonded residues. This greatly reduces the time usually required for preparation of the substrate to be levelled.
