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.
