The biggest precast event of 2012 was held last week, Precast2012. Bell & Webster Concrete received two medals from British Precast in recognition for their contribution to the Olympic construction.
With its track record as a supplier of precast concrete components to landmark projects including the prestigious Ricoh Arena at Coventry. The 32,500-seat stadium opened in 2006 and recently host the annual UK Concrete Show. Bell & Webster Concrete was chosen as the preferred subcontractor for the provision of the terracing to the Olympics Aquatic Centre.
The selection also reflected the company’s impressive product portfolio and sophisticated precast factory based in Grantham. As the project specification required the provider to be totally committed to the Olympic Delivery Organisations eco-friendly principles, Bell & Webster was able to demonstrate its commitment to the environment and to the requirements of a high-quality prestigious project through its British Standard accreditations to BS EN ISO 14001 and BS EN ISO 9001.
Unusually for the precast industry – where high early strengths are required to ensure efficient optimisation of moulds – the project requirements included the use of recycled materials such as reclaimed and recycled aggregates and the use of cement replacements including GGBS. Working from this specification, the company developed a mix design to meet the requirements for quality and efficiency along with the environmental needs of the project.
At every stage, Bell and Webster Concrete was able to satisfy all the client’s requirements and delivered the project on time and within budget.
