Barr Construction - Sainsburys Rustington
Project: Sainsbury’s Rustington
Client: Barr Construction
Contract Value: £70,109
Contract Overview: Design & supply of 4 precast concrete lift shafts
Waycon Precast Ltd were contracted by Barr construction to supply and design for precast concrete lift shafts for a new Sainsbury’s store in Rustington West Sussex. Due to the tight program constraints typical to new supermarket builds a precast solution offered the client a number of benefits.
As three of the lift shafts sit directly next to each other Waycon decided to combine the three into one single “Triple Shaft”. Casting the units in this way gave a number of on-site advantages. Firstly be allowing the shafts to “share” internal walls space was saved on site, giving the units a smaller overall footprint. Secondly the shaft was able to be constructed in only 11 pieces rather than the 18 that would have been required, significantly reducing installation time on site.
