Our expertise, materials and products have helped build some of the UK’s largest and most innovative construction projects of the last 50 years. Our capability across the energy, major infrastructure and commercial, residential and industrial sectors is founded on the experience and resources of HeidelbergCement, the global leader in aggregates, a major producer of cement and concrete, and the supplier of choice to building projects throughout the world.
From low and high rise residential buildings to retail and commercial projects we offer total construction solutions for clients, specifiers and contractors working on all types of developments.
Projects we have supplied include London’s Canary Wharf and 122 Leadenhall Street – often known as the Cheesegrater for its distinctive wedge shape.
Keeping the lights on for future UK generations means an increasing reliance on low carbon power generation and renewable technologies. Our products, materials and expertise are already well-established in the renewables industry through our involvement with many wind farm, biomass and waste-to-energy projects.
And while natural gas is not a renewable resource, it’s the cleanest of the fossil fuels and we have considerable experience of supplying contracts for its plants, pipelines and storage facilities.
Our experience these sectors is particularly strong with the London Gateway Port extension and Crossrail among the recent large contracts for our products, materials and services.
Our materials and products are helping to protect many UK homes and businesses from the risk of flood and sea damage. We have considerable experience of supplying flood resistance projects including the construction of Blackpool Sea Defences.
Through our parent company HeidelbergCement, we have over 30 years’ experience in developing concrete mixes for tunnelling projects worldwide. In the UK specifically, we have developed technical and product capability that has been proven across numerous projects, including London’s Crossrail.
Our hard-wearing materials and resistant surfaces are regularly in demand for the construction of waste handling and treatment centres, and waste to energy plants.
