Beam & Block floors are a quick, robust, and easy method for constructing suspended flooring that's become increasing commonplace in the commercial and private housing sector. The system uses infill blocks, laid between 'T' beams, making use of ready-made and readily available materials, which are also relatively inexpensive, and require no drying out time. Allowing suspended floors to be constructed quickly and with very little concreting.
As well as their easy application, beam & block floors are rot proof, fire resistant, drought proof and offer superior sound proofing capabilities. They can also be walked on and insulated right away without compromising their integrity.
So, they're both a time efficient and budget friendly way of creating suspended floors en masse, both at ground level and on the upper levels of residential and commercial buildings.
Our proficiency in beam & block flooring is just one of the many groundworks specialisms we undertake for our clients at Mackoy. Ensuring the safe stacking of materials between applications as well as carrying out all excavation and preparatory works prior to installation. Taking time to check that levels are true and all mortar is cured, and following the same strict quality controls for every beam and block we put in place.
From ensuring your project can be delivered to time and to budget, to providing the complex calculations that determine how the construction can be made mechanically sound. Civil engineers use their environmental and structural expertise to bring a building to life.
Foundations are the cornerstone of any manmade structure, grounding the building to the floor for stability and strength. Our foundation excavations follow technical specs to a T. Taking trenches to the correct depths and avoiding collapse and infill.
Our CCTV surveys will help you quickly determine the health of your drains, identifying the root cause of any problems by a timely, cost effective and non-invasive means. While our drain cleaning capabilities ensure we can quickly dislodge any pipe blockages or build-ups preventing foul water drainage.
Oversites create an airtight seal between a building's groundworks infrastructure, and what will eventually become the finished floor. Providing a smooth layer of solid poured concrete, or suspended beam and block, that forms the floor's final foundation.
