"The Church Village Bypass scheme presented our team with a unique challenge. The location and nature of the works required the sensitive use of appropriate construction materials in order to minimise the impact on the local environment. Concrete Canvas provided a means of rapidly installing a low carbon concrete ditch whilst maintaining the natural aesthetic of the overall scheme."
"The original drainage solution provided a huge logistical headache so changing the design to a Concrete Canvas lined ditch saved a lot of time; I was really impressed with the speed and ease of installation."
"I consider CC to be a practical, fast and agile solution, which is easy to install without the need for specialised labour or lane/line possession. Another big advantage is the possibility to install CC on slopes or drainage elements under severe weather conditions. Also the transportation, the finishing and cleaning of the work site and its surrounding area was superior to the alternatives. I would recommend it as a suitable solution for slopes and ditch lining for road and rail projects."
"For me it was impressive - the hardness obtained by a thin layer of 5mm and in such a [short] time. I also like the more natural and organic look of CC against the shotcrete. It´s super-fast! Nowadays the companies are always on top of cost savings, and with the shotcrete solution [it would have been] much greater in terms of logistics and time. It´s super easy!"
"We were pleased with the speed of installation of Concrete Canvas, particularly given the ground conditions. We have since used Concrete Canvas on other projects to provide a fast, effective ditch lining solution and will certainly advise our clients to use in future."
"The simplicity in application; the industrialization of the application process; the speed on installation; the non-risk of over hydrating the concrete; the low safety risks associated; the easiness on the material transportation; and finally, the reduced industrial waste resulting from the application."
"The project was a success as the programme, originally scheduled for completion in 3 weeks, was completed in 5 days. Having used the product on previous projects, I knew the speed and ease of installation would be of great advantage to us."
"We found Concrete Canvas very easy to deal with. They were extremely helpful and informative about the services they provide and the product itself. They arranged to visit the site to give an informative tool box talk to operatives. The material itself was simple to install, and the speed of install was surprising. We are very pleased with the finished product and will continue to work with Concrete Canvas."
"The product has saved us a lot of time and has the same results as the traditional pre-cast concrete units method. Another benefit has been that we can install it in wet weather conditions, which would normally disrupt programme schedules using more traditional methods of channel lining. We believe it’s the first time Jones Bros has used Concrete Canvas on a project and that it’s one of the first times it has been used in North Wales for this type of application. It’s fantastic that the client has approved its use and we’re hopeful we’ll use it on more projects going forward. The works have progressed ahead of schedule and using the concrete canvas has gone smoothly."
"The choice of concrete canvas to line the ditch was a real ‘no brainer’, it allowed us to work in most weather conditions and installation using the tracked excavator and spreader bar meant we were able to install quickly given the challenging conditions underfoot. Definitely a product we would chose to use again."
