Face Consultants Ltd were appointed by the flooring contractor Konfloor, to survey and test the flooring works on a multi-temperature product handling facility at DP World London Gateway, known as project Halo.
Halo is a new venture from of one of Europe’s leading fruit importers which will be integrated within DP World London Gateway’s Port ensuring the reduction of waste, cost, maintaining sustainable supply chain alongside the increase in fresher produce.
Duane Scarfe, Operations & Quality Manager for Face Consultants Ltd said, “we carried out surveying and testing of the 10,000m2 floor slab which consisted of a Surface Regularity survey to check compliance with the FM2 classification which is found in the Concrete Society’s Technical Report No 34 (Fourth Edition).”
“We also carried out specialised Accelerated Abrasion Resistance Tests in accordance with BS 13892 – 4:2002 to check compliance with the AR1 Classification which is found in BS 8204-2:2003 + A2: 2011. This type of test is carried out to determine if the floor is durable to cope with different kinds of mechanisms on its surface such as vehicle wheels, foot traffic, scraping and impact.”
“We were able to complete the Free Movement test within three days and the AART in one day when the floor was 28 days old. We presented our findings back to Konfloor that proved that the required tolerances had been achieved”.
