UK Vehicle Park

Teddington, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom - November 2013

Project Description

When W. Gilder Limited, property developer and contractor, invited Hunstmans Quarries to assist with the supply of concrete for a planned commercial vehicle park near the M5. FORTA-FERRO® 54 mm provided limited cracking and prevented curling at the edges of bays which remains a huge factor in areas trafficked by heavy vehicles. In addition to the security of a high performance reinforced concrete slab, the decision to use FORTA-FERRO® 54 mm in the concrete meant that the contractor could completely eliminate the use of reinforcing steel, thus saving project, transport costs and labor costs. The use of FORTA-FERRO® 54 mm also allowed the contractor to enlarge the dimensions of the bays to 3.0 m x 6.0 m thus reducing the costs of the joint sealing materials.

Key Points:
