We have just been awarded the following works as an addition to the initial masonry works:

To supply and install approximately 500m2 precast concrete pavings blocks (600 x 200 x 100mm) fixing to existing concrete retaining wall by utilising stainless steel channels, slotted dowel ties and resin anchors. Stainless steel support angles are fixed to the bottom course of the paving blocks for added structural support. The wall is intricate in detail as it curves, rakes and varies in height around the perimeter of the multi-storey car park.

In addition, we will also be supplying and installing a combination of precast concrete (approximately 100m2) and slate (approximately 80m2) cladding panels, again utilizing stainless steel channels and secondary metalwork as a structural fixing to existing concrete walls. By working with Norwest Holst, we were able to offer value engineering options on the precast concrete panels, reducing the overall cost to Norwest Holst by approximately £25,000.00. 

Total value of additional works = £175,000.00.
