The use of offsite manufacturing is a growing trend in railway infrastructure engineering, as it leads to improved quality and reduced time on site.
As a result, one the UK’s leading manufacturers of precast and bespoke concrete products, Anderton Concrete, is experiencing a significant increase in demand for custom-made solutions that are manufactured to bespoke specifications, as professionals explore smarter methods for further enhancing on-site productivity, whilst simultaneously improving cost efficiency.
Anderton commercial director Shaun Forrester said: “Engineering, construction and building materials all have a vital role to play in the UK’s economic recovery throughout 2021. Within this challenging time, construction professionals are examining every stage of the supply chain and making bolder moves with regard to procurement, to not only be more productive now, but to also be better prepared for the future.
“This is one area where bespoke concrete solutions really come into their own, as by manufacturing off-site, the high quality products are produced to exact design and project requirements, eliminating the potential resource, cost and risk implications associated with casting concrete on-site.”
Manufacturing concrete solutions for the most demanding commercial projects, including rail, highways, utilities and power generation, for decades, the company has developed an enviable reputation for high quality concrete products, supported with service excellence.
Each bespoke element is precast to individual specifications at one of Anderton Concrete’s impressive facilities in Northwich, Cheshire and Bootle, Merseyside, before being delivered to site in the shortest lead times possible.
Shaun continued: “We work in partnership with our customers from the initial design stages of each project, right through to delivery, to ensure every element is manufactured to the highest standards. Our bespoke manufacturing capabilities enable us to produce large volumes of custom-made concrete solutions, whatever the application.
“This means no matter how simple or complex a project, or whatever shape and size of concrete needed, we can deliver. Our experienced industry estimators can return quotes within 24 hours and our own on-site moulding facilities ensure timely availability with nationwide delivery.”
Anderton Concrete is part of Ibstock Concrete. Its bespoke concrete solutions have been specified across a number of high-profile infrastructure projects recently, including the Feltham Re-signalling Programme, the Werrington Grade Separation, Durham Coast and Birmingham New Street.
