Our Concrete contractors are responsible for heavy-duty construction projects where concrete is the main material. This can be anything from precast concrete beams, concrete block flooring, concrete car park constructions, concrete bridge building, or any kind of architectural concrete structure that is required for your development project. Our concrete services cover all types of commercial and residential concreting, including houses, schools, libraries and shopping centers, agricultural buildings, and large developments. You can call us anytime to discuss your requirements, we can always tailor a solution to match your concrete needs.
Here is a selection of the service we do:
Reinforced concrete slabs are sometimes referred to as “precast” slabs because they are poured in place on site but then cured at the factory before being shipped to the job site. Precast slabs can reduce installation costs significantly by taking advantage of economies of scale only found in large fabrication facilities capable of producing many different types of precast concrete products.
Precast concrete slabs
Precast slabs are generally more expensive than traditional cast-in-place, but they can also be produced in longer lengths and larger sizes than those that can be poured on the job site. With proper detailing, precast slabs can bear heavy loads and withstand transportation to a remote installation site. Even though a slab may have been “precast,” it does not mean it is less durable or less strong than a traditionally cast slab. In fact, most modern floors built with precast slabs have life spans equal to those installed using traditional cast-in-place methods.
Precast concrete beams
They consist of steel bars (reinforcement) that run through the concrete and provide it with additional strength. They also cover any holes in the concrete and create a smooth, sealed surface. Before we start work on reinforced concrete beams, we assess the necessary reinforcement required for the job, such as how many steel bars will be used and what size they should be so that our client’s floor is safe and secure after we finish. When the reinforcement in concrete beams is installed, we will then fill in the concrete. This can be done in a number of ways. We can either pre-mix it and pump it to the site, or we can bring ready-mixed concrete to your development project. Concrete beams come in a selection of sizes to match our customer’s requirements.
Site-cast concrete floors
Concrete is a strong and durable material that has been used for flooring in industrial and commercial installations for many years. Concrete boasts a number of benefits when compared to other types of flooring, including its low cost, energy efficiency, and simple method of installation. Commercial concrete flooring comes in a large variety of shapes, sizes and finishes. The most common type of concrete that is chosen by contractors is often high-strength concrete or cement screed that can be laid between 70mm -100mm thick on top of the sub-floor. This forms an ideal substrate for laying ceramic tiles, vinyl, timber plank floors, etc. Talk to us for your concrete Nottingham and all related services.
Concrete Kerb laying service
One of the most important steps in road construction is the installation of kerbs. A concrete kerb is strong, durable, weatherproof and aesthetically pleasing when installed properly. The pavement can be made to look more appealing by adding an edging strip around it. It lessens the chance of damage to vehicles and provides added safety for pedestrians. The appearance of pavements is integral in many places throughout UK cities, towns, and villages – perhaps even most visibly so in areas where people live or shop regularly. Kerbs are often part-and-parcel of their surroundings, with kerbstones acting as a barrier between the home/shopfronts and roads that surround them.
Concrete paths and walkways
Designing a suitable footpath structure so that it is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. This includes creating well-designed drainage channels, compacted gravel beds beneath slabs.
Concrete pumping service
We offer concrete line pumping, and concrete boom pumping services throughout Nottingham and Derby.
