New Ischebeck Titan HQ

Project information

Project: New Head Office and Distribution Centre
Location: Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire
Product used: K-Form

The Challenges

The new Ischebeck Titan Head Office and distribution centre featured a large concrete external distribution area, which required several runs of linear drainage. The site also featured falls from entrance areas of buildings at different levels. The contractor had a limited time-frame in which to complete the drainage installation and therefore required a quick and efficient solution.

The solution

K-Form K135 Screed Rail was specified for this project, being a sacrificial screed railing system with built-in isolation joints in the vertical section. This allowed the contractor to set up adjoining bays with falls, to facilitate larger areas to be poured at the same time. When compared to installing and striking traditional timber shuttering, the schedule using the K-Form was dramatically reduced and there were no ‘hit and miss’ bay areas poured. Additionally there was no need to strike out timber afterwards, in order to repeat the process.

The results

K-Form allows concrete areas to be poured much faster than with traditional systems; significant savings on labour costs were evidenced on this project. Aesthetically, the finish of the concrete joints is much neater and looks far more professional, incorporating the isolation joint facility.

Additional support services supplied

Support was given from the K-Form technical team throughout the project on and off site along with guidance to structural engineers.
