Anderton Concrete Delivers Significant Cost Savings With Stepoc System
Setting the standard for the efficient and sustainable formation of single skin retaining walls, Anderton Concrete is proud to announce its unique Stepoc 325 Concrete Shuttering System has been proven to be one of the most cost-effective methods of construction.
Following independent analysis, the innovative Stepoc system has been found to offer a substantial cost saving of over 30% when compared with in-situ concrete and an approximate saving of 20% against cavity block construction, all without compromising on quality or performance.
From flood alleviation schemes to basement walls, lift shafts and platform edges, the Stepoc 325 Concrete Shuttering System provides construction professionals with a highly efficient approach to the formation of durable and resilient dry-laid structures, without the requirement for additional expertise or training.
This is due to the system’s unique design, which significantly reduces installation times, by facilitating the fast and proficient construction of single skin retaining walls up to 3.5 metre high from a single pour. This not only maximises on-site safety and efficiency, but minimises additional costs by combining the ease of blockwork with the versatility of in-situ concrete.
Weighing less than 20kg per unit, the pre-cast concrete shuttering blocks are strategically manufactured to readily accept vertical and horizontal reinforcement, as concrete is pumped directly into the inter-connected cavities.
Manufactured in three widths to meet the most demanding site requirements, the system’s innovative cascade design also guarantees smooth and consistent distribution to eliminate segregation.
The end result is the formation of retaining walls that have unrivalled compressive and lateral strength, without the associated cost or resource implications.
Tim Fields, Technical and Development Manager at Anderton Concrete, said: “For almost 40 years, our unique Stepoc Concrete Shuttering System has continued to push the boundaries and expectations of the construction and infrastructure industries.
“Gaining independent verification of the impressive cost savings Stepoc offers when compared to in-situ concrete and cavity block methods of construction is a reflection of our continued commitment to supporting our customers in achieving the most efficient method of construction, whilst simultaneously delivering the highest standards in quality and durability.”
The industry leading system was also recently awarded the British Board of Agrément (BBA) Certificate 20/5774, evidencing Anderton Concrete’s first class engineering excellence and dedication to supporting industry professionals in achieving a world-class built environment.
