Bringing knowledge and know-how to achieve a better build with six miles of underfloor pipework required for the underfloor heating system, under a very large concrete slab that used Adfil polypropylene macro synthetic fibres in place of the traditional reinforcing mesh. The fibres are added to the mix prior to pumping forming a three-dimensional reinforcement system increasing the residual flexural strength of the concrete that will protect the pipes during laying and stop cracking of the floor.
The fibres also have a number of ecological and environmental key benefits as they are very light so reduce the carbon fibre transportation footprint, they are cost effective as they are far quicker to install than mesh, and from a Health and Safety perspective they require no cutting, manoeuvring and handling.
A Dutch contractor provided a prefabricated building built off-site and bolted together on site which only took 12 weeks to make air and water tight. The only thing cut on site was the insulated cladding panels.
Good communication helped deliver a positive outcome when itwas clear that the client wanted early access to the building to fit-out we rescheduled the project programme so it was slightly out of sequence to the original but still finished at the original date to allow them safe access to areas to undertake the work they wanted to.
Honest and open communication with the supply chain stopped issues forming particularly to support a supply chain member on this project that had an open and frank conversation with us about the cashflow challenges they were experiencing due to matters out of their control. Amiri purchased bulk material in advance to ease the pressure for them and ensure the project programme was maintained and that they could undertake the work successfully.
"We are very pleased with the way Amiri approached and delivered the project. We were kept fully informed at all stages and the project was delivered on time. The onsite management team were very efficient and we are happy to recommend Amiri as main contractor". Neville Prest, Managing Director, Rosebourne Garden Centre.
