Legendre UK Complete Foundations of Dockley Apartments

Legendre UK Complete Foundations of Dockley Apartments

Legendre UK’s technical appraisal highlighted that the use of rigid inclusions, also known as controlled modulus columns (CMCs) and a raft slab would deliver several benefits, including the overall reduction in the quantum of cement, concrete and reinforcement required in the substructure and superstructure with the consequential carbon carbon improvements.

There were also significant programme benefits; on average each CMC was formed in less than 5 minutes. As such the whole operation from start to finish took lees than two weeks. In comparison, a CFA piled solution would have taken three to four weeks on average.
