South Coast have been pumping the concrete there, setting up above the tunnel and pumping down onto the track. The job has gone smoothly as Network Rail explained to the BBC and STV News – see video below.
A South Coast Concrete Pumping job has recently been featured on the Evolution 5 Ltd website. Evolution 5 is a project management company based in Southampton and they have been engaged to manage the demolition of an existing property and the construction of a modern, spacious 6 bedroom home in its place. The new home is being built using insulating concrete formwork – in this case Beco Wallform.
Once the blocks had been delivered to site, installed and reinforcing steel fixed, South Coast were booked to infill the blocks with concrete supplied by the local CEMEX plant.
First off, a layer of concrete with a damp proofing additive was pumped into the walls. Following this, the remaining concrete was built up in layers, as a controlled pour, to minimise the potential to damage the polystyrene blocks. The concrete, as is normal for this type of construction, was a 10mm aggregate mix.

This year has been a momentous one for South Coast Concrete Pumping. We have started to redevelop the company by buying new pumps, opening depots in Scotland and the South West of England and growing the business to meet the increased demand for our services.
As the year draws to an end, the directors, managers and all the staff at South Coast Concrete Pumping wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all customers, old and new. See you in 2015 for what we hope will be another busy year for us all.
South Coast Concrete Pumping has just taken delivery of several new machines. These are 16m, 42m and 47m Putzmeister pumps which will further increase our capacity to meet the demands of the booming construction industry.
This continued investment in new and quality second hand equipment firmly establishes South Coast as one of the leading concrete pump suppliers in the UK today.
Construction Index has recently published an article highlighting South Coast Concrete Pumping’s investment programme. It is illustrated by a picture of the first of an order of four new Putzmeister pumps to be delivered.
South Coast Concrete Pumping is experiencing a high demand both from existing customers who are busy and from new customers looking for reliable pumps and experienced operators.
It is anticipated that the current investment programme will have to be extended well into 2015 to meet current and expected workloads.
