Concrete Society Awards, 21 November 2018 - BRMCA Excellence in Customer Service Award

The Winners CEMEX for Northern Line Extension

CEMEX supplied a demanding concrete for the cast in-situ secondary 250 mm thick lining to vaulted gallery sections.  Around 12 linear metres of tunnel were fully lined every 24 hours, establishing an outstanding performance rate in tunnelling construction.  This was only possible with the thorough understanding of the concrete design and performance, as well as the teamwork between the temporary works department and the on-site operators of the formwork system.
