Matt Doran reported that Berkswell Readymix Plant successfully produced its first ever POROFOAM 950 for Costain Ltd, working at Claverdon Sewage Treatment Works in Warwickshire. The customer was looking for a non-structural mix to fill an underground chamber.
After much discussion between all parts of the business, we suggested our 950 mix with good margin. Matt accompanied our IHC on the first load and the site staff were initially apprehensive about using the mix, having previously used our VOIDFILL product for a similar application. However, the engineer on site was very pleased with the product and its characteristics.
Thanks to everyone involved including Area Technical Manager, Gilbert Morgan, for co-ordinating the project with all arms of the business; John Shrimpton and Mike Higgins for specialist technical assistance and guidance on mix design prior to and during the pour; Gordon Mcdade for preparing the plant and ordering of the specialist raw materials; Damian Keogh for batching and managing the pour; David Wetherill and Kevin Davis for foaming duties and on-site technical assistance, and finally David Taylor for dealing with the enquiry commercially while Matt was on holiday. Same again tomorrow! The photos show the before, during and after.
