Crimscote Construction have started work within the Muller Wiseman factory, in Droitwich.
Crimscote Construction are delighted to have this new client on board, and are keen to finish all works within programme constraints and ensure the traffic in and around the factory is not disrupted.
Crimscote Construction have been awarded the Groundwork’s and foundation package to repair the external concrete yard. All repairs in and around the factory must enable the various 60 ton trucks to maintain their logistics operation up and down the country.
Crimscote will saw cut around all of the damaged areas within the concrete yard and break out all of the failing surface to replace with a brand new, highly reinforced concrete repair. Crimscote will be using a high strength C40 concrete mix with 12mm steel reinforcement to ensure the job is done right. We will also be undertaking drainage repairs; and installing a new F900 airport class surface water drainage system. This will ensure all surface water is taken away sufficiently.
Crimscote will also repair areas of tarmac, replacing the old worn surface with a high strength SMA 20mm Tarmac wearing course to ensure the 60 ton trucks keep moving without damaging the surface. SMA was developed in Germany in the 1960s. It provides a deformation resistant, durable surfacing material, suitable for heavily trafficked roads. SMA has found use in Europe, Australia, the United States, and Canada as a durable asphalt surfacing option for residential streets and highways. SMA has a high coarse aggregate content that interlocks to form a stone skeleton that resists permanent deformation. The stone skeleton is filled with a mastic of bitumen and filler to which fibres are added to provide adequate stability of bitumen and to prevent drainage of binder during transport and placement. Typical SMA composition consists of 70−80% coarse aggregate, 8−12% filler, 6.0−7.0% binder, and 0.3 per cent fibre.
