Whelan & Grant have been producing industry leading fair faced exposed concrete for nearly two decades. Our projects are regularly used as benchmark examples for the pinnacle of what is achievable in architecturally aesthetic concrete. We have won multiple awards in this field over many years and will continue to do so.
We have many years of experience in working with some the UKs leading Post tensioning companies and have delivered many successful PT frames, many of which are also high quality exposed concrete. We work with clients at tender stage to determine if post tensioning is a viable option both structurally and financially.
We have completed many different basement constructions throughout the country. These have included the use of one sided walls in waterproof concrete, two sided walls with membranes, work around temporary propping and in extreme environments. We have extensive experience in waterproof concrete construction and are familiar with all the major waterproofing systems on the market.
We partner with major formwork companies using innovative solutions to produce concrete cores several floors ahead of the main slabs. We recently completed a 26 storey tower in Southampton using this approach. We can also use climbing shields in conjunction with this method to ensure the safety of the public and the workforce.
Whelan and Grant are highly experienced in this area. We can procure and install standard precast units all the way through to bespoke cast insitu curved architectural staircases. We work in conjunction with the country’s leading precast suppliers to ensure a high quality solution.
We are able to form concrete in virtually any shape through the use of bespoke timber and metal shutters. These tailored solutions also help us work in areas of limited space where traditional shuttering wouldn’t fit. We recently completed some very complicated curving walls at Centre Parcs, Woburn.
