KonFloor LTD was awarded this project with Buckingham Group Contracting to supply and install the floor slabs to a warehouse of 14,000m² and 7,500m2 external service yard.
The slabs to all areas of the facility had to be constructed on consecutive days over a 4 week period. Panel sizes averaged 1,600m² with an average 350m³ concrete poured per day.
The ground floor area had a 185mm slab reinforced with a single layer of A193 (Bottom Face). The floor was to be cast to FM2 special tolerance using our Somero SXP laser screed. Permaban's Alpha Joint 4010 was selected as the preferred joint providing load transfer & arris protection between each panel.
Curing/ sealing membrane in the 90% curing efficiency class was applied.
The preparation of the final 50-100mm of the sub grade was carried out using our laser guided dozer and compacted with a 10ton Bomag roller.
The floor slabs to all areas were constructed within the 4 week programme and the finished slab to the ground floor was surveyed by FACE Consultants confirming FM2 “Special” tolerance had been achieved.
