Double Award Win for Fosroc UK

Fosroc are delighted to have won two prestigious awards at the CRA Awards last week - The CRA Small Project of the Year (under 1M) Porthcawl Breakwater and Slipway, and the SCA Project of the Year - RNLI Slipway Porthcawl. Contractor Beton Bauen used Fosroc products for both project elements, with distributor Kestral Construction Products supplying and delivering material. Held at the stunning Hilton Double Tree in Liverpool, the glitzy black-tie awards ceremony followed the Annual General Meeting, bringing together key refurbishment and repair industry players for an evening of food, entertainment and recognition for outstanding achievements. As part of the Structural Concrete Alliance, the event also hosted the Sprayed Concrete Awards, with award categories Manufacturer of the Year, Emerging Talent, CRA Project of the Year (<1M & >1M) and SCA Project of the Year.

The winning project demonstrated the ability of Fosroc as manufacturer and Beton Bauen as specialist spraying contractor to propose a workable solution to repairing the slipway with minimal disruption to stakeholders such as the RNLI, while minimising the impact of the sea - in a highly challenging location with the second highest tidal range in the world. The volumes of void-filling required made the use of a proprietary underwater grout prohibitive from a cost perspective, so use of a grout with an admixture proved to be the ideal solution, with approximately 600 tonnes of the grout used to fill the voids. The partnership between the specialist contractor and Fosroc resulted in a successful, uninterrupted application avoiding product wastage to keep project costs minimised. Paid setting products placed by the spray method eliminated the need for shutters and ensured the material was set before the incoming tide submerged the works.
