REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES

Cidon Construction is a specialist reinforced concrete contractor with over 20 years' experience in the delivery of complex concrete structures,

Our key areas of expertise include the design and construction of RC sub and superstructure frames. We have a strong reputation for delivery with sectors such as High Rise Concrete Frames, Energy from Waste, Heavy Civils and Highway Structures.

We also have extensive experience in delivering a full range of concrete finishes from basic, as struck, to architectural patterned concrete.

 

KING POST WALLS

King post walls are a quick, cost effective system of building temporary or permanent earth retaining walls. They are formed using steel beams and either precast concrete or in-situ panels.

The post holes are bored in the ground using a continuous flight auger (CFA) piling rig, positioned at pre-determined centres. The holes are subsequently filled with concrete, and the H beam is installed. This allows concrete panels to be inserted between the webs of the H sections, when excavation commences.

BENIFITS:

  • Simple, fast and versatile solution
  • Cheaper alternative to sheet piling
  • Virtually silent and vibrationless
  • Speed of installation
  • Ready for immediate follow-on construction

PRE-CAST AND HYBRID CONSTRUCTION

Hybrid concrete construction is a method of construction which integrates precast concrete and cast in-situ concrete to make best advantage of their different inherent qualities. The accuracy, speed and high-quality finish of precast components can be combined with the economy and flexibility of cast in-situ concrete.

This technique produces buildable and more importantly competitive structures, therefore the client receiving the overall benefits of safe and faster construction with a consistent performance.

Cidon Construction have many established partnerships with various precast suppliers and have undertaken a number of hybrid schemes on a full design and build basis over the years.

  • Cidon as the SFS Contractor can remove the Edge Protection System whilst installing the external board , thus a reduction on the demand for Mast-Climber time and therefore less sub-contract interfaces
