Able UK were looking for a cost effective durable material for use as a car storage area for all of the BMW fleet of vehicles prior to inspection in their new PDI building before despatch to dealerships. Originally Able UK were looking for a standard asphalt solution for the site, however, after being presented with both asphalt and roller compacted concrete (RCC) solutions they realised that RCC offered a far more durable and longer term solution and it was subsequently approved by BMW.
Roller compacted concrete can be mixed on-site - saving time and due to the durability of RCC it proves a more cost effective and durable solution with other less obvious benefts, such as reduced lighting requirements.
CEMEX have supplied 82,000 tonnes of aggregate material from our Dove Holes Quarry after gaining a good understanding of the exact requirements of the project and tailoring the design to meet this. The customer was very pleased with the work carried out and have started looking at how RCC can be used on other projects at the same site.
