Nationwide concrete flooring has recently completed the design and construction of a reinforced ground bearing internal concrete floor slab for client stoba in the remote location of small dole near Brighton in East Sussex The works consisted of two number existing buildings which required an overlay reinforced concrete floor slab has part of the company’s expansion plans and ongoing refurbishment.
The existing concrete floor slabs were approximately fourty years old and unsuitable for usage and also at different levels. Nationwide concrete flooring used the laser guided sub base compact leveller to lay quickly and accurately a stone layer transfer platform to make the same levels throughout.

The machinery works to extremely tight level tolerances as it is specifically designed for sub base levelling. Once the initial stone levelling was complete stainless steel joints were installed at the perimeter. Detail and also for permanent construction joints.
The overlay concrete floor slab was then laid using the Somero 3.0XD laser screed over a two day period and to the depth of 125mm. Nationwide concrete floorings concrete floor slab designers managed to be able to reduce the originally designed depths due to the vast experience of floor slab design and test results taking on the existing sub strata build up.

The client chose from the wide range of coloured concrete floor topping which nationwide concrete flooring supply and lay and a Sika syntop light grey was chosen to reflect light from the floor and to offer clients and workers a nice feel good factor to the warehouse environment.
Saw cut induced contraction and stress relief joints were installed the following day and all the saw cut joints were sealed with nationwide concrete floorings instant seal 101 joint sealant once the slab had been spray cured using nationwide diamond cure hard sealer and dust inhibitor.
Please see the labelled pictures showing the laser screed concrete floor slab with dry shake sprinkle topping being laid.
