Reinforced Concrete Structures Specialists
CROSS WALL CONSTRUCTION
M.R. Concrete Specialises and has many years of experience in cross-wall construction. The technique is becoming more popular as it provides savings on overall project time when compared with traditional methods of construction.
M.R. Concrete has the experience and confidence to manage the complete shell construction, including the supply and placement of reinforced steelwork. This minimises overall logistical disruption and delays, reducing project time and cost.
The benefits of this technique are that because the floor is poured in-situ, there are no requirements for relieving angles, etc., and no delays caused by waiting times on pre-cast forms. M.R. Concrete continuously stocks considerable quantities of decking formwork and therefore decking can be completed quickly. These two benefits can deliver savings of up to 20% when compared to equivalent pre-cast options.
M.R. Concrete is one of the first companies in the uk and Ireland to implement this highly effective technique. The main advantages are the savings in project time, which in-turn provides a time-saving of up to 40%. This allows completion time to be reduced to only 7 days per floor over traditional formwork techniques that require 12 days per floor. This technique also reduces the requirement for crainage by up to 50%. These cost and time savings are making this method more popular.
