Redi-Rock Case Studies – Nailsworth
A 75% saving compared to
William's Kitchen, Nailsworth, UK
Replacement of culvert walls and building of support structure of Grade II listed building in a small old English market town.
Specific Project Considerations:
- Confined space - constant flow of water
- Base of structure approximately 2 metres below
- Aesthetics are important, as the wall is on view
in a very picturesque English village
- Environmental requirements
- Party wall issues
- The site is on a roundabout in a typical market
town with narrow street
Redi-Rock blocks were used for this project. Just like ‘Lego™’, the blocks are inter-locking and self-locating and do not require any mortar.
Redi-Rock solutions are made from concrete, are sustainable and are good examples of offsite design with minimal time spent onsite.
- Saving of £500,000 to the project.
(The project was originally specified using pile driving at a cost of £750,000)
- Approved by the Environment Agency and Severn Trent Authority.
- Wall installed in 17 days – the water considerably slowing the project down.
- Team size: 3
- Enabled the proprietor to continue trading during the whole of the construction process.
- All roads in the small village remained open for the duration of the project
