New Year, New Pumps – Schwing M43 & M20

The first of our new pumps for 2019 are now ready for service. An M43 to add to our fleet of large boom pumps and an M20 for small jobs and those in cities / towns with less room to manoeuvre and to set up. More Putzmeister and Schwing pumps are due shortly – watch this space.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year

The end of the year is upon us and, we are pleased to say, it has been a busy one for us. As well as working on many of the country’s most prestigious sites – Hinkley Point C, Thames Tideway, High Speed 2 rail link and Crossrail – we have enjoyed working for many important regional and local building companies. So, to all of our customers, and indeed to our suppliers too, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to working with you again in 2019.

Carnwath Road shaft – base slab pour

Five weeks after completing Kirtling Street shaft base slab pour, the Camfaud Special Projects team was back at the bottom of a 50 metre deep shaft, this time at Carnwath Road, repeating the exercise. Our customer at Carnwath Road was BMB jv; BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty, and the concrete was supplied by Hanson Concrete.

The Carnwath Road shaft is narrower than that at Kirtling Street and so there was slightly less concrete in the slab. However, in terms of resources needed to carry out the pour safely and successfully, it was very similar.

Camfaud supplied three concrete pumps, one placing boom, high pressure delivery pipeline and ancillary equipment. As with Kirtling Street, we provided two shifts of Thames Tideway inducted, CPCS qualified operators working round the clock over a full weekend to complete the pour.
