Week 4

Report date - 2nd February 2009
Works commenced on site on Monday 5th January 2009. 

- The retaining wall (that separates the Tarmac Homes and the E-On house next door) has been backfilled.
- The stone margin surrounding the plots has been completed ready for scaffolding.

That completes all substructure work (with the exception of the rainwater harvesting system which will be installed at a later date once the superstructure is completed).

Materials - blocks, facing bricks, insulation and brickwork sundries have been delivered ready to start superstructure brickwork, which due to the snow will be delayed until later in the week (weather permitting!).

Tarmac poll

How many different types of concrete do Tarmac offer?


Did you know?

Fact 9

Concrete can be dense or lightweight and this choice affects its thermal behaviour. In either case, concrete can act as a thermal sink or as an insulator. In some buildings you can see masonry concrete doing both.
