We received a question relating to concrete pour planned for next week, the question related to the potential for overnight work once the concrete has been poured.
As indicated in last week’s update we are forming part of the reservoir floor, these works are being undertaken in the North East corner of the reservoir site.
In advance of the works we have consulted with the Sunderland City Council environmental team.
The process can be explained as follows:
· Steel Fixing (rebar) complete.
· Shuttering complete.
· Aim is to mass pour 400m3 (equivalent to 50 + truck loads).
· 08:00am concrete mixers commence arriving on site estimate pour complete by approximately 18:00pm.
· Power floating (a one man operated rotating power float rig) with six rigs through the night into the following day.
Once pour is completed, we then move onto power floating the concrete to a smooth surface finish.
