There is snow stopping Camfaud
In common with most of the construction industry, we have done very little paid work this week due to the snow and cold weather. We have used this quiet time to continue with our ongoing programme of staff training.
We have, over the past few months, been getting many of our operators through their PTS (personal track safety) and ICI (Industry Common Induction)tests and the recent weather has allowed us to accelerate this process.
We now have nearly 30 concrete pump operators with Sentinel cards and so are well placed to carry out concrete pumping works on Network Rail and London Underground contracts.
The Sun has published a great photo of a Camfaud pump working at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The photo is being used to illustrate a story about the rising cost of building the new stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium
We, and our sister companies, have been privileged to work on many new stadiums and stadium upgrades, most notably Twickenham, Old Trafford, Wembley and the London Stadium (formerly the Olympic Stadium).

Roline – peristaltic line pump
Roline pumps are ideal for small pours, pumping from the street and for special materials.
The peristaltic pumping system is robust and has been used to pump concrete for decades. Roline pumps are quiet and have a smooth pumping action. They are easily cleaned and, with the concreting gang, pump operator and mixer driver working together, leave very little concrete waste.
In addition to low volume concrete pours, Roline pumps are especially suitable for pumping flowing floor screeds and foam concrete.
BBC tv’s Fifteen Billion Pound Railway
BBC tv’s documentary “The Fifteen Billion Pound Railway”, which follow the construction of London’s Crossrail project, is back on our screens.
Episode 1 of the new series shows our team pumping heavyweight concrete at Farringdon Station to form a sound deadening track slab underneath the Barbican theatre and concert hall. The programme explains the construction of the floating track slab in some detail but what it doesn’t tell you is that our pipeline was 1,000m long!
Episode 2 shows two of our M36 pumps pouring a post-tensioned floor at Liverpool Street Station.
They are available to watch on the BBC iPlayer until the third week of June 2017 and will doubtless be repeated at some time in the future.
