ABOUT THE PROJECT

SpanWright UK were subcontracted to supply and fit 250mm prestressed flooring planks at the PDR – Eastwood, Rotherham site for German discount retailer Aldi Stores Ltd.   One of many high profile retail sector clients, the  £1.2 million Fitzwilliam Road store was the 12th Aldi project for PDR –  proving their track record of delivering successful projects for the  supermarket retailer.

PROJECT CHALLENGES

SpanWright UK had to work within a pre erected steel framed structure to  place planks at ground floor level. A split level floor area to accommodate  cold storage insulation requirements had to be incorporated. Prestressed  flooring planks were pre notched, on manufacture, in order to slot into the steel frame and cores formed pre delivery to accommodate service openings. SpanWright UK fitted at ground floor level, dropping planks at a slightly lower level for the cold storage area, to allow extra insulation to be fitted, thus finishing the complete floor area on the same level.   SpanWright UK prestressed flooring is a cost effective time saving construction product.  Using 100Tn craneage the precast flooring planks, once fitted, also provided a safe working platform for following on services and trades.   Site Manager Shaun Ruane acknowledged the professionalism of the SpanWright UK Operatives on site.
