UK industry uncovers imports of unverified concrete products

September 2019

The findings highlight concerns about the quality and performance of key drainage products

British Precast is the trade association for precast concrete manufacturers and members of the supply chain. The main aims of the federation are to promote precast concrete in the construction market; to disseminate information, through a range of industry representation and by shared knowledge, and to add value to its member companies.

British Precast has discovered that a range of imported precast concrete drainage products such as manhole rings, manhole covers, seating rings, corbels and gully raisers are being placed in the UK market without visible proof of third-party verification or assessment of conformity to relevant European and British standards. As a result, customers can have no confidence in the performance of such products. Third party verification systems are crucial to our industry as they ensure a product’s quality, durability and safe performance in service.

A number of UK industry specifications, such as ‘Sewers for Adoption’, ‘Civil Engineering Specification for the Water Industry’ (CESWI) and different highways’ standards and manuals, require specific precast drainage products to conform to relevant provisions of British Standards such as BS 5911-3. This can only be assured through third-party certification such as BSI’s Kitemark scheme. The industry has a responsibility to demonstrate their products to be safe for their intended use.

Colin Nessfield, Technical Manager of British Precast, advised “Customers, and others in the product supply chain have a responsibility to ensure that the precast drainage products they purchase have the necessary 3rd party assessments and certification, which is the minimum required by the Construction Products Regulation. Ignoring these requirements plays into the narrative that elements of the construction industry are still unconcerned about product safety, quality and client satisfaction.”

Proper certification is vital
Precast concrete elements and products manufactured to harmonised European Standards, with an Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) level 2+ legally require Declarations of Performance (DoP) with details of the assessment body and assessment certificates available. Such third-party certification is vital for assuring the safety of products supplied.

British Precast issued a ‘CE Marking’ guide to its member companies to help them demonstrate conformity in accordance with the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) when it became law.

For further information please contact Hafiz Elhag (hafiz.elhag@britishprecast.org), Secretary of the British Precast Drainage Association (BPDA) or Colin Nessfield (colin.nessfield@britishprecast.org), Technical Manager of British Precast.

Cost effective coastal erosion prevention

February 2019

Cost effective coastal erosion prevention

In December 2018 Elite Precast Concrete were contacted by Richard Roseveare, owner of specialist groundwork and civil engineering company C-Shore Ltd to discuss what might be the quickest, easiest and most cost effective method of stopping further coastal erosion at a site in Cornwall.

A 45m stretch of the coast line was gradually being eroded by the sea which was in turn threatening to wash away sections of three back gardens above the cliff line.

The base of the cliff was only accessible from the beach at low tide so a solution that was both quick to install as well as being incredibly durable and able to withstand the harshest of stormy Cornish winter weather was needed.

Richard chose Elite’s largest range of high strength interlocking blocks (which have a design life of over 100years) for the job and having settled on the design he and Elite set about planning the work.

Such was the remote nature of the construction site the blocks had to be delivered to a nearby holding area from where Richard could take them one by one to the foot of the cliff. So having cast the steel reinforced foundation slab using ‘no-fines’ concrete Richard set about installing the blocks.

Working quickly to avoid the incoming tides C-Shore were able to lay the blocks in a matter of days and of course without the need for shuttering, formwork, steel fixers and pumping large volumes of ready-mixed concrete.

The result is three very relieved and happy home owners who are safe in the knowledge that their gardens have been protected for many years to come by Richard’s ingenuity and Elite’s high strength Legato blocks.
