Portglenone based housing developer, PRH Construction Ltd is undertaking the build. Integral to the six-storey apartment block is the 600mm thick structural ground floor transfer slab/roof slab spanning the basement car parking. FP McCann’s 40N concrete was specified with a slump design suitable for pumping into the reinforced steel mesh formwork.

A 42-metre long Putzmeister concrete pump was utilised to accurately deliver the concrete into the structural floor slab. The pour was undertaken over a single day with 70 concrete truck mixer loads delivered from the Kilrea concrete plant some 25 kilometres from the site.

Commenting on the concrete pour, PRH Construction’s Raymond Henry says, “Work commenced on-site at 3.00 am on 27th November and continued right through until 8.00 pm. The ‘Just in time’ deliveries from FP McCann’s Kilrea plant were of the highest standard, ensuring continuous uninterrupted pumping throughout the day”.

FP McCann also supplies special concrete mixes such as watertight concrete and sulphate resistant concrete.
