Following the successful completion of the first phase of works on this production facility in Ryton-on-Dunsmore near Coventry, Level Best Concrete Flooring were invited back to complete phase 3 of the works on behalf of the fast growing West-Midlands based company.
Scope of works involved the design of a 220mm pile-supported steel fibre reinforced suspended slab. The slab was designed in conjunction with the pile and ground beam slab support layout. The slab was also designed in conjunction with phases 1 and 2 in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Coventry. The final factor driving the slab design was the Landlord’s and end-user’s loading requirements including racking, forklift and general loads.
Slab installation works commenced with the introduction of steel fibres onsite. Once fibres had been integrated concrete was directly discharged from the ready-mix concrete trucks and screeded utilising one of Level Best’s five laser screed machines to a high-tolerance. A dry shake topping was applied throughout the concrete plastic shrinkage stage to prevent protruding fibres at the concrete surface. A full powerfloat finish was provided to a high-quality with a curing and sealing agent applied to aid shrinkage and provided a sealed surface.
On completion of this suspended steel fibre reinforced project in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Yorkshire-based Level Best Concrete Flooring will mobilise across the West Midlands to complete another major ‘jointless’ steel fibre reinforced project, installation internal concrete floor slabs for a new waste transfer station.
