Technical Focus - Beam and Block Flooring

2018-10-30 16:30:26 emmad

Beam and block is a construction method using cast concrete to support flooring on ground floors and multi storey buildings. One piece is a precast concrete beam which can be an inverted T-shape beam or lintel and the other is a simple rectangular block. The beams are placed at regular intervals with the blocks placed between them to form a connection between each beam section. They form a support for the next layer of flooring materials.

The photos below were taken by our blogging team at our Locks Heath Free Church project recently. https://amirilocksheathfreechurch.tumblr.com/
