Care Home Flooring – Concrete Hollowcore

Care Home Flooring

Concrete Flooring and Stairs for 120 Bed Care Home

Due to open in Spring 2016, Avonbourne Care Centre will cater for 120 elderly people. The £8.8m three storey care home was commissioned by The Orders of St John Care Trust and is located in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Spanwright UK were appointed by the main contractor to deliver a large quantity of precast concrete flooring and stairs to the development. In fact, the concrete flooring alone would span over 4km if lined up in row!

High priority was placed on quality, safety and sequencing throughout the project and the Spanwright UK team integrated seamlessly amongst site management and staff. The design team specified both 150mm and 200mm prestressed concrete flooring across the multiple wings to cater for the load requirements. Detailers and operatives paid close attention to the various notching and detail required across the project.

The installation team made use of the on-site crane to fit slabs with little interruption to other site works helping the project remain on schedule for completion.
