The Aberdeen Bypass was one of the largest infrastructure projects in Scotland. The subcontractor PJ Davidson appointed Accumix Concrete to deliver concrete for the slip-formed central crash barriers. We supplied 9km3 of slipform barrier concrete in 12 weeks to a 40-mile plus long work site. The mix was unique to the Aberdeen Bypass project and used site won aggregates and specified admixture. Our equipment consisted of a mobile 60-tonne silo, a telescopic wheeled loader and four volumetric truck mixers. All work was completed on time and to the requested specifications. Our operational base was moved twice during the 12-week period to ensure continued productivity. The peak daily concrete outputs exceeded 180m3.
Accumix Concrete worked alongside Joe Roocroft and Sons to complete the motorway improvement scheme between Junction 16 (Crewe) and Junction 19 (Knutsford) on the M6. The project involved creating an “all lane running” smart motorway covering 20 miles. This project required upgrades to drainage systems and the installation of concrete safety barriers. We successfully delivered large volumes of concrete and produced consistent concrete over extensive lengths. This enabled the barriers and drainage systems to be formed in–situ. Approximately 3,600m3 of concrete was supplied over 16 weeks. Work schedules involved nights during the final month, which dramatically increased supply. Volumes of concrete provided peaked at 140m3 per shift.
The M65 project was costed at £6.6m and funded jointly by the Department for Transport and Lancashire County Council. Accumix Concrete supplied approximately 3,000m3 of concrete during a 23-week period. The project involved replacing the existing central reservations with concrete barriers and replacing drainage systems. The daily concrete demand peaked at 180m3 in September 2015. Our expertise allowed Joe Roocroft and Sons to form the barrier and drainage systems in-situ.
Together with Costain, Accumix Concrete provided a series of repairs for the M42 between Junctions 3a and 5. This work involved resurfacing all four lanes on both carriageways. Working in partnership with Tarmac’s Building Products division, we delivered the required quantities of fast setting, ultra-rapid strength gain concrete. Over 100 concrete bays were created within two months. Each bay measured 3m x 5m.
Since 2009, Accumix Concrete has been a key contributor to a maintenance contract which covers many of the West Midlands’ major roads and motorways, including the M5, M6, M40, M42, M50, M54, M69, A5, A38, A38 (M), A46 and A49. Our experts have supplied concrete for numerous aspects of the project, with much of the work being done at night. These projects use rapid setting concrete to ensure that the surface can be used by traffic within hours of being poured.
Accumix Concrete partnered with contractors Costain on sections of the M54 in Telford, between Junctions 3 and 4. This project was for Highways England and EM Highways and ran for approximately 6 months. Work was completed in Spring 2015. Services provided included removing and replacing safety features and improving drainage and reducing noise. This project involved a combination of off-peak lane closures and full overnight closures with engineers working 24-hour shifts.
Alun Griffiths approached Accumix Concrete Aug 2020 for the supply of ready mixed concretes for a key infrastructure project on M5 Junction 4, having been let down by their previous supplier on multiple occasions. The Project Manager for the scheme and his site teams were finding it increasingly challenging to deliver the works on time and within budget using their existing supplier.
Accumix Concrete leapt into action and through close coordination with the Alun Griffiths Site Agent, every delivery has been made on time, without exception.
A number of the pours have been structural, where day joints are not acceptable. Due to the significant size of Accumix’s fleet, they have the trucks and manpower to successfully coordinate deliveries by multiple vehicles either simultaneously or staggered to ensure these structural pours take place without hiccup.
Acumix also provides a full concrete testing service, where cube samples may be required to verify performance of concretes used.
Since commencing work for Alun Griffiths on M5, Accumix have successfully secured other projects and have developed an excellent partnership with the operational and administrative teams.
