Roadstone approached the supply of heavyweight concrete to the Bon Secours Hospital focusing on three key pillars:
Logistics – Due to the increased weight being carried the capacity of each truck was limited to just over half of the volume typically carried. Through communication and planning our logistics team ensured a consistent supply
Quality – Each load was assessed for consistency and plastic density at our readymix plant in Classis following batching and on site prior to placement to verify that the heavyweight concrete met the requirements of the specification
Operations – Additional measures were put in place prior to batching such as thoroughly cleaning aggregate stockbays and altering our batching methodology to ensure accurate batching
Over the course of four separate days Roadstone supplied in excess of 300m3 of heavyweight concrete.
