Celebrating Excellence in Concrete: A Night to Remember
It was great to celebrate outstanding work in our industry. A big congratulations to all the nominees and the well-deserved winners!
We are particularly proud to share that Willow Walk (previously known as Osiers Road), a project Walsh has worked on, received the recognition of ‘Highly Commended.’ This achievement is a testament to the dedication and excellence of everyone involved.
The judges commented that:
“Careful accurate modelling was required to achieve the quality finish on this project. Pigmented concrete was used. The light concrete gave fossilised appearance whereas the black pigmented concrete was of matt finish. Bespoke moulds were developed for the weave pattern panels using rubber, which helped to hide the joints. It must be stated that the corner sections of the weave panels were remarkable in the finish, giving the effect of wrapping around the structure’s edges.
Acid etch on all weave precast was used to give a completely unformed finish. The remit was to keep the design, form and layouts as simple as possible, which was satisfied. No sign of weathering or stains, maybe due to the pigment included in the concrete. Even with the fall across the site the bottom section lined up immaculately with surrounding pavements. To get this detailed so well is a testament to the planning involved.”
