We were contacted by one of the best high end achieving schools in the UK.
The school prides itself on delivering an all-round education and learning experience, where students thrive in an environment of intellectual energy, balanced by an unrivalled range of co-curricular activities.
It was for one of these activities that concrete was required at a specific grade and strength, as they required foundations to be poured for their new cricket nets.
The mix had to be very precise. We provided a RC32/40 with Fibres as it was vital it set within a certain amount of time so that it was functional, taking into consideration the time scale and knowledge that the infamous team Surrey Cricket Club would be using the nets.
We were excessively vigilant through carrying out disproportionate testing which was carried out 3 days prior to the pour to ensure the concrete setting times and strength were correct.
The time gap in which the concrete was to be delivered left little manoeuvre as it was required between 1 and 2pm in order for it to be completed before school had finished, saving any disturbance at the school.
