DESCRIPTION Infilling of subways at Marble Arch, London
MIX DESIGN 600kg/m³ 2N/mm²@ 28 days
The project was to infill 5 subways around Marble Arch, London. We were contracted to set up our onsite batching plant, to pump around 300 linear metres from a central location. This meant all the subways could be filled without having to move our equipment around. This decreased the amount of traffic congestion around this very busy area by not having to close off any roads.
Deliveries were made via cement tankers allowing us to produce some 85m³ from each tanker load. The tanker(s) were on site for around 40 minutes blowing into the silo. We were receiving a maximum of 3-4 deliveries depending on the daily volume required.

We have expertise and plenty of experience working in challenging environments, where our competitors would struggle to pump the volume or distances. Their approach might have impacted the busy traffic flow in central London, whereas ours is lower carbon, lower impact and therefore more environmentally friendly.
