We've been casting concrete for our latest project in Barking. This is the second prototyping phase using site won aggregates supplied by our client Barking Riverside Ltd. The tests aim to establish the performance of various aggregates including knapped flint, incinerator bottom ash and crushed concrete. The next test phase is a full-scale accelerated pavement test on site ahead of the project construction phase commencing in 2019.
We're really excited to be developing our ideas for this residential project in York. The project will use a lattice structure of timber to form the main façade and roof and have a folded timber interior connecting inside to out.
