Solid Flood Super Wideslab provided for floors at Digby Road apartments

Flood precast provideds Solid Flood Super Wideslab Floors for this project. The Filigree Wideslab method of deck construction can be applied anywhere conventionally poured-in-place concrete is specified. It can be used for flat plate, beam and slab or wall-bearing concrete structures. Any strength requirements needed for poured-in-place construction can be readily met with the Filigree method.

Solid Super Wideslab flooring systems have a number of advantages:

a) Reduction in Frame Size:

Precast floors can be designed to act compositely with the structure of the building to reduce frame sizes: e.g. main support beams supporting solid slab and screed can be designed as T-beams.

b) Progressive Collapse

Prestressed composite floors can be tied-in to the main structure and are therefore particularly suited to buildings where progressive collapse is a consideration.

c) Diaphragm Action

Precast floor slabs together with the structural screed provide a structural deck with full diaphragm action where required in multi-storey buildings.

We worked with Kavannagh Construction Ltd, who was appointed by Court Collaboration property developer transformed Sutton Coldfield’s former council house which was demolished to make way for a new build of seven high-spec two and three-bedroom apartments in one of the town’s most desirable postcodes, retaining many  of the building’s original features.

The £4 million project now known as The Chase, is Court Collaboration’s second development in Sutton Coldfield after it bought the town’s former Council House in 2014.
