The run up to Christmas has been extremely busy for our workforce across the British Isles. From basements in Surrey and Student Accommodation in Stoke to Brenig Wind Farm in Wales, across the Irish sea to Dublin Port, through the city to Clongriffin apartments and up to the new Dalry Bypass in Scotland. From South Coast to the Isle of Skye, they’ve covered it all! In concrete that is, pouring a combined total of 4,200m³ in just 7 days, never mind the rebar and formwork! We are incredibly proud of what our site teams have achieved this year and want to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication. Have a very Merry Christmas, and enjoy a well-earned break
Last night under the floodlights, we poured nearly 1700m³ of concrete at our Berth 28, Dublin Port project. Seeing as we are in Dublin, home of Guinness, that’s the equivalent of almost 3 million pints of the black stuff!
We have recently concluded our turbine base works at the Coire Na Cloiche Wind Farm site in the Scottish Highlands. This 13 turbine development, completed in a 7-week programme saw steel fixing finished in just 5 weeks with up to 4 concrete base pours in one week. The photo shows the early stages of rebar setting out at the beginning of the project.
Things are really starting to take shape at the anaerobic digester project in Derby. Our operatives have only been on site for 7 weeks and have already fixed and tied 180 tonnes of steel reinforcement and poured almost 1400m³ of concrete during construction of the in-situ concrete bases for the new tanks on site.
The pre cast section of the mooring dolphin at EDF Fife has been lifted into its offshore position and the concrete pours for the internal area have commenced. The location of the dolphin means that traditional concrete pumping methods are not possible so a barge is required to carry several skips of concrete from the quayside out to the site. This process is then repeated numerous times until the structure is complete.
The first reservoir tank at Llwyn Onn in Wrexham has been completed, this 74 metre long, 32 metre wide and 6 metre high tank is now ready to receive the 12 million litres of water it was designed to hold.
Our concrete works at the Sandford Hydroelectric project in Oxfordshire have been completed, the rest of the project is due for completion at the end of August when the site is connected to the National Grid.
We are delighted to have been awarded the formwork contract for the construction of two dolphin marine structures at Energy Park Fife for Graham Construction. The dolphin structures are isolated marine structures that extend above the surface of the water to provide a mooring facility to which vessels can be secured. This project is a great opportunity for us to showcase our marine and offshore formwork capabilities.
Our bridge works on the N17 – N18 Gort to Tuam motorway have been completed. Our part of this major project included the construction of 7 Overbridges, 2 Underbridges, 2 River bridges, 1 Railway bridge and 1 Pedestrian footbridge for clients Roadbridge Ltd. The project is due for completion in early 2018.
Murform are excited to be working on this interesting project as formwork contractors for new client Fergal Contracting Co Ltd. The project will see the restoration of the Lasher Weir near Sandford on the River Thames in Oxfordshire to its historic role as provider of clean energy. The hydro scheme will generate an impressive 1,600 MWh of renewable electricity per year, which is the equivalent demand of around 450 households.
