Hanson UK has been highly commended at the 2015 Concrete Society Awards for its involvement in the redevelopment of Bridlington Pump Station in Yorkshire.
The project, which is adjacent to two EU-designated Blue Flag beaches, used multiple specialist concretes supplied by Hanson, in order to achieve the high-strength and durability necessary to withstand the challenging conditions of a sandy location. It was one of only five projects to receive the prestigious award.
The pump station was recognised for the versatility of its concrete and the fact that it supported the community environmentally, as well as ensuring that all visible concrete integrated with the architecture of a nearby Victorian Spa.
Hanson UK Concrete technical director, Charlie Jones said: “We are delighted to accept this award, which demonstrates our technical capabilities in providing concrete excellence. We carried out a substantial amount of development work prior to supplying each mix, including contingency planning for possible material source and quality changes, and worked closely with the contractor and admixture supplier to overcome challenging ground conditions, strength and durability requirements.”
