Hello - .
We combine low carbon materials, smart thinking and technology to form sustainable and environmentally friendly ways of building in the UK.
Our business focuses on two areas, Sustainability & Digital – read on to find out more.
Sustainability in construction is quite a broad term. Everyone wants to build responsibly and in a sustainable way, but not everyone manages it.
We work with businesses to identify areas where they can improve construction products and systems to reduce their environmental impact – and carbon output.
Within the concrete and precast industry, this involves looking at ways to reduce the amount of carbon that’s produced by the raw materials, manufacturing & transport.
Technology is helping the construction industry in so many ways – making it more productive and effective.
Building Information Modelling reduces errors in design and creates a more collaborative way of working.
Augmented Reality gives us the ability to be able to maintain assets quickly and remotely.
And smart sensors help us to manage the performance of structures and warn of problems before they escalate.
Concrete is the most widely used construction material on the planet. We are determined to reduce its impact on the environment.
Smart construction increases productivity & lowers environmental impact.
Work in a real-time collaborative environment with your customers to provide them with the best products and solutions, saving them time and money, and increase sales.
Sensors are used to monitor the mechanical and physical condition of a structure. Warnings are sent to asset managers if a significant change occurs, which is followed up by physical checks for issues.
Enable data-driven understanding of the “fresh” and “hardened” properties of concrete by embedding sensors into your structures.
Knowledge Innovation Voucher Winner
We’ve recently won a Knowledge Innovation Voucher with a Civil Engineering team from the University of Liverpool.
The project is called Motionwall™. It will use sensors to monitor the movement of structures, like bridges and retaining walls on motorways.
The sensors will help public organisations like Highways England, to respond to structural issues quickly. This will reduce the need to close roads and avoid high maintenance costs.
