Technical Focus: Non-shrink grout

2018-06-19 14:33:03 emmad

This comes in a bagged powder form and water is mixed on site to generate the liquid.

The purpose of the material is to completely surround the baseplate and bolts of the steel frame once the structure has been erected and levelled. The material hardens to form a solid ‘packing’ in and around the base-fixing.

The sand box shuttering for the frame bolts are created by hand before the grouting is poured into the mound and allowed to set.

Technical Focus – Bodpave

2018-05-21 16:17:47 emmad

Bodpave is a British made Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).

Bodpave grids are a strong interlocking 100% recycled cellular porous plastic paving grid system for grass reinforcement, ground stabilisation and gravel retention. They are perfect for use in heavy traffic areas such as pathways and carparks.

Laying the interlocking Bodpaving grids correctly is important to make sure they provide excellent surface drainage and remain stable for many years to come.

Having worked on each of our projects to create fantastic new environments it’s always a pleasure to get an invitation to see how our clients are settling into their new space. It’s fair to say that any invitation that has a prancing horse on it is always going to be especially welcomed so it was off to the new Meridien Modena Ferrari Technical Centre and Classiche workshop in Totton to see how the team recently awarded “Ferrari Global Service Dealership of the Year” is enjoying their new home. With key personnel from Ferrari in attendance it was fantastic to see so many classic and contemporary Ferraris along with a rather special pre-production car. Congratulations to the team of Tony Jenkins, Dave Gee and John Marsh of Amiri and Boyle+SummersJubb Consulting Engineers LtdRHB Partnership and Gleeds for creating a building that’s more than worthy of housing such fantastic machinery.
