For foundations, we recommend using Gen1 (C12/15) S2 concrete.
We provide foundation concrete that is versatile & durable and can be used for:
Domestic Garage Foundations
Home Extension Foundations
Concrete Wall Foundations
Domestic concrete foundations can also be used for out-buildings such as sheds and summerhouses, and supporting structures such as retaining walls and patios.
For reinforced foundations, we recommend using
RC20/25 (C20/25) S2 concrete.
Concrete is a composite material that works well in compression, but not in tension. We can solve this problem by casting wet concrete around strong, steel reinforcing bars (tied together to make a cage). When the concrete sets and hardens around the bars, we get a new composite material, reinforced concrete, that works well in either tension or compression: the concrete resists squeezing, while the steel resists bending.
For resistant concrete, we recommend using RC25/30 (C25/30) S2 concrete.
Particularly in underground construction, concrete structures are exposed to loads and wear & tear, which is a result of decade-long use. Concrete is characterised by its outstanding durability. Solutions containing sulphates, such as in natural or polluted groundwater, represent a considerable deteriorating impact on concrete. This can eventually lead to loss of strength, expansion, spalling of surface layers and ultimately to disintegration.
Using our resistant concrete for your foundations will ensure that your building stands strong against all elements.
For an oversite, we recommend using
Gen2 (C25) S2 concrete.
This is a layer of concrete that is laid below a slab or flooring to prevent the ground beneath from being disturbed, to block out air and moisture, and to provide a hard, level surface for subsequent flooring layers.
For garage & shed bases, we recommend using Gen3 (C28/30) S2 concrete.
A concrete base is the most durable base for a garden building, and its the most popular choice for higher value garden buildings. A concrete base is normally finished a few inches above the ground, which helps to prolong the life of a timber building. Inexpensive steel reinforcing can be placed within the concrete for extra strength at sites with poor ground conditions, for example where trees and shrubs have been removed or if the ground has been built up.
For driveways, we recommend using RC25/30 (C25/30) S2 concrete.
Benefits of a concrete driveway:
Clean & Attractive Appearance
Safe, Non-Skid Surface
A concrete driveway is a sound investment for your home, and will last for years, unlike other paving options.
For kerbing, we recommend using
ST2 S2, OR ST4 (P300) S2 concrete.
While concrete kerb systems need to perform, they shouldn’t be a blight on any landscape, and this sleek, highly durable precision-manufactured offering has benefited highway schemes up and down the UK.
For a cavity wall fill, we recommend using Gen0 C6/8 Mix S2 concrete.
For drainage concrete, we recommend using ST1 S2 concrete.
For manholes, we recommend using
ST4 (P300) S2 concrete.
For industrial flooring, we recommend using RC28/35 (C28/35) S2 concrete.
From heat and high foot traffic, to chemical exposure and heavy impacts, industrial floors need to handle a huge range of different pressures – and our specialist surfaces do just that.
For agricultural & farming concrete,
we recommend using
RC32/40 (C32/40) S2 concrete.
A concrete that is specially designed to meet the tough and aggressive requirements of agricultural & farming applications, whilst also being economical and easy to place.
Foam concrete is often used to fill voids and provide support for top layers. Due to its low density, it can be easily re-excavated should the need arise.
Foamed concrete has many other applications including decommissioning of septic tanks and filling voids
We have 3 screed types, 4:1, 5:1 and 6:1 all with a 6 hour retarder.
Wave goodbye to stained carpets, draughty floor boards and slippery tiles and welcome concrete screed flooring into your home or business. Strong, robust and affordable with very little maintenance required.
