Urban high rise concrete

UK commercial and industrial growth is linked strongly to high rise housing and retail development.

With powerhouse policy driving government and private investment across the UK commercial and industrial growth is linked strongly to high rise housing and retail development. Modern commercial buildings, either new build or retrofit, need to be affordable, functional, practical and above all sustainable.

A key consideration in the concrete solutions we offer is the whole-life performance they offer the building. As such, construction and maintenance cost reduction, durability, speed of delivery are key performance requirements to our concrete capability.

High performance concrete

Our concrete expertise offers and range of durable readymix designed to perform in high, early strength applications.

  • High flow, self-compacting concrete for trench foundation and shuttering techniques
  • Mesh free, fibre reinforced, high strength concrete for fast programme delivery
  • Pumpable screeds that perform at height
