We recently pumped approximately 5,000 cubic metres of concrete into the basement of One Nine Elms, a mixed-use skyscraper development in South West London. Camfaud supplied four pumps, two Putzmeister pumps and two Schwing pumps for the pour. We also supplied backup pumps though, in the event, these were not required to work.
The pour, was carried out for Careys Civil Engineering. It lasted nearly 36 hours and finished on Sunday 17th March, allowing the Irish contingent a double celebration on St Patrick’s Day.
London Concrete supplied the concrete, a 75% GGBS 25% cement mix. It was their second largest continuous pour after the 5,500 cubic metre pour they carried out in 2009 at the Shard. The success of the pour was highlighted in an article in The Construction Index.
