Project: Tesco Extra Newtownards

JobService road at new Tesco Extra store in Newtownards
Main ContractorMcLaughlin & Harvey
Concrete SupplierRoadmix
Description

A lightweight raft foundation needed to be constructed for the service road at the back of the new Tesco Extra store in Newtownards. Tesco endeavoured to build an environmentally friendly store including 100% sustainable timber cladding, natural lighting and other measures.

The density of the concrete foundation could not exceed 1100kg/cu.m or else the main storm drain from Newtownards that ran below the road could be damaged.

Roadmix decided to use Larsen’s Foamed Concrete Liquid to create the lightweight Foamed Concrete they needed, to pump to construct the service road.
