Taylor Wimpey

This is an ongoing project with Taylor Wimpey where we were asked to construct raft slab foundations to large scale development over 10 years. Fast Form has been chosen to supply our own Fast-Form brackets and have also supplied Alkus plastic ply. The result is Taylor Wimpey have a system in place for casting all of the house foundation slabs that will outlast the contract, there is ZERO Timber Usage or Wastage, a huge reduction in waste and Carbon Footprint.

One of the main benefits of our Fast-Form brackets is that they are greener and more sustainable than traditional options. Constructed from 100% fully recyclable materials, our bracket systems have little or no timber wastage. As a company we are focused on lowering our Carbon Footprint, so even our deliveries produce lower emissions, making your project more sustainable from start to finish. We even supply a Carbon Saving Certificate with each job so you can see exactly how much you have helped the environment.

If you would like any further information on our Fast-Form bracket systems or the bespoke solutions we offer, please contact us and our friendly team will be more than happy to help and run through your individual requirements.

Brief

Taylor Wimpey are building a large scale development of almost 500 homes. A very large site with a 10 year construction period. Fast Form has been chosen to supply our own Fast Form brackets and have also supplied Alkus plastic ply.

The system has been sold to give immense time and cost saving benefits over the life of the project, Alkus is guaranteed for 7 years and expected to last beyond the 10 year project, Fast Form Brackets also carry a 7 year warranty with an expected lifespan of 15 years plus.

The result is Taylor Wimpey have a system in place for casting all of the house foundation slabs that will outlast the contract, there is ZERO Timber Usage or Wastage, a huge reduction in waste and Carbon Footprint.

The system is re-usable and will last much longer than the duration of the project and will be then moved onto the next project, even at the end of their useful life Fast Form and Alkus can be fully recycled.

Reason

Traditional formwork would have resulted in high timber usage and wastage and over the 8 years of the project would have to be replaced many times, also it is much more expensive overall. Fast Form offers overall cost savings on materials but also halves the cost of labour for installation and can be erected in half the time giving further time saving benefits.

No Carbon Emission reduction and also high wastage.

No crane so heavy panels could not be lifted in or out, panel sizes did not fit, would have taken days to erect (with crane) and also more expensive long term, price to purchase also much higher and no 7 year warranty.

No Carbon Emission reduction and also additional machinery required would have increased the Carbon Footprint.
