Single Plot Dwelling,
kings Lynn

The clocks went back last week and the mornings are getting much colder. However, this hasn’t stopped our installation teams rising not so bright and early to get this beam and block installation done.

Just up the A47 from our casting facility in Wisbech is a great example of what Floorspan can do for our customers. On 30/10/18 one of our teams were working on a 136.55m2 new build bungalow (complete with garage) for ‘Grange Developments’. Grange Developments have used us frequently over the last few years. Thank you to Patrick at ‘Grange Developments’ for allowing us access to the site over in King’s Lynn and for continuing to show faith in Floorspan’s precast concrete installation service and products.

Patrick first sent over the enquiry in September. Jill A, an experienced Floorspan estimator, was assigned the project. Jill created a design that Patrick could use to build from. This accompanies a quotation so that the customer can be sure that they are getting “the best” value. On this occasion Grange Developments opted to use our beam and block installation service as the most cost-effective way of completing this stage of the project.

Below, is the final design drawing produced. One of the challenges with this project was positioning the lorry so that all beams could be delivered into each bay. Unfortunately, (and what you can’t see in the picture) the ground in front of the garage (bay 7g) is not suitable for a lorry.

This is one of the ways that the estimating, installation and transport teams work together to make sure that our service runs smoothly for the customer. The drawing shows how we managed to position the lorry on the day- following some communication with the client to make the ground safe.

Before the lorry can get in position, the installers are busy prepping the site. Mixing mortar, laying DPC, studying the drawing and finalising a plan of action ready for the installation.

As soon as the Floorspan lorry arrives, the block and beam installation process was quickly underway. Beams are unloaded from the lorry and then installers are busy spacing them ready for the infill blocks. As planned, the lorry’s rear-mounted crane was able to reach each bay. It is this attitude of planning ahead is why customers come to us- it saves time, effort and labour- ensuring great value.

As the morning rolled on, the installers worked hard to get everything completed to a high standard as quickly and efficiently as possible. Within an hour all the beams were in place ready for the blocks to be installed.

Once all the beams were in place across the site the team were ready to fill with blocks.  These were already unloaded and the team got to work.

All that is left is for us to fit the slip bricks, ensuring the floor is safe and complete, and to apply grouting. We provide the correct number of slip and air bricks within our quotation.

The installation was completed in just over 5 hours. There were no unexpected delays and the floor was fitted perfectly. At the time of writing, the site is ready for the next stage of the build.

I've used Floorspan plenty of times and I will continue to do so, I've never had any issues at all. Great job
