UK’s Award Winning Concrete Repair Contract supplied by Fosroc

Fosroc UK is proud to be a materials solution provider for the award winning M5 Oldbury Viaduct, which recently won the Concrete Society Repair and Refurbishment Award 2019. With a contract value in excess of £100M, it has been dubbed the UK’s largest ever concrete repair project. 

Specialist applicators Concrete Repairs Limited and VolkerLaser were awarded the prize at the Concrete Society Annual Dinner in November. The project was praised for collaborative working in delivering a hugely complex scheme of works on time. The repairs spanned the full 3.2km long deck, covering 100,000m2, involving full repairs to 270 deck ends, over 10,000 individual mid span areas and replacement of half a deck as part of a single repair covering 200m2

Fosroc are proud to have been chosen to supply this project, offering a unique product and solving delivery problems for our customers, which helped to ensure this busy elevated stretch of the M5 can continue service for many years. Renderoc LA60 was specifically formulated with busy highway refurbishment in mind.  Contractors selected it because it may be cast in large volumes, developing high early strength, allowing fast work and a rapid return to service. In addition, its high durability aligned with a balanced resistivity makes it compatible with the parent concrete and the Cathodic Protection System employed. It was specifically tested and approved for Highways Agency use and use on the Midland Links.

With the objective of optimising site productivity and reducing project costs Fosroc made special delivery and site storage arrangements and Renderoc LA60 was supplied in half-ton bags, reducing packaging waste and dust.  This bespoke project solution enabled the contractor to minimise handling and manual work on site, as well as accelerating application and return to service times.

The project demonstrates perfectly Fosroc’s flexible, problem-solving approach in providing materials and service solutions to the construction industry. A role we have been proudly fulfilling for over 80 years.
