Mixed Retail Premises, Droitwich
The redevelopment at Olbersely Street, Droitwich showed the incredible versatility of the Insulslab foundation system. The problem posed was to extend an oblong building on three of its four sides but with all the new sides having curved elements. With conventional foundations these curves would have taken skilled operatives considerable time to correctly place the reinforcing bars. However, with the steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) that is used in conjunction with the Insulslab expanded polystyrene pods no such outlay of time was needed.
