Emergency and non-emergency structural repairs

Emergency and non-emergency structural repairs

As business owners, we fully appreciate that accidental or wilful damage to property, infrastructure or machinery can have a dramatic impact on your day-to-day operations. That is why we provide emergency and non-emergency structural repairs as an integral service for all our clients. Steel and concrete structures are susceptible to damage by heavy use, impact, fire and the environment. We have had wide ranging experience in such repair projects, from steel framed buildings to overhead gantries and pylons, to concrete sea defence and dockside infrastructure.

Red Leaf Group is trusted by clients across multiple industries to provide a reliable service in these situations. To minimise financial, operational, and Health & Safety implications for businesses when such damage occurs, a fast response and efficient solution is essential. We work with commercial businesses, local and national authorities and insurance companies, responding swiftly and offering a complete package of consultation, design and implementation of the most advantageous repair strategy.

After an initial assessment to determine structural safety, our highly skilled on-site team’s priority is to make safe, provide emergency stabilisation and catastrophic failure avoidance if and where necessary. Urgent remedial work can be provided or a temporary fix put in place if the situation requires it; this can allow for business productivity to continue as much as possible while a permanent solution is decided upon. Whatever the nature of the damage, Red Leaf Group has the resources and experience to offer a safe, effective solution when it is needed most.

Concrete floors, pads and haul roads

Concrete floors, pads and haul roads

Concrete is an ideal material choice for many internal and external floorings, particularly in a commercial or industrial setting where its durability and resistance to spills of petroleum-based products is especially beneficial. Red Leaf Group has a wealth of experience in constructing concrete floorings, slabs and haul roads to a range of specifications and sizes and offers a complete consultation, design and construction service. Our concrete team is proficient in the varied installation, reinforcement and finishing methods which will be chosen to best suit the individual requirements of a project. We are able to construct hard-wearing internal floorings for workshops, warehouses, factories and waste recycling facilities, external hard-standings for parking areas and walkways, large slabs for material and other storage needs, access ramps, wash-bay ramps, access roads and haul roads.

The success of any concreting project depends on expert design and planning; accurate structural calculations for slab thickness, concrete strength and optimal joint placement are vital for robustness and longevity and careful consideration of gradients is required to guarantee effective drainage. At Red Leaf Group, we are meticulous in our preparations, ensuring our clients are provided with a finished product that can stand up to the demands of an industrial environment and vehicle and plant movements. We appreciate the necessity to maintain site productivity as much as possible while works of this nature are being undertaken, that is why we pride ourselves on being a company who offers flexibility and a schedule of works that we will stand by.

Modular concrete structures

Modular concrete structures

Pre-cast modular concrete serves as an extremely versatile construction material and at Red Leaf Group we frequently use it in a range of traditional and innovative applications and varied environments. Our experienced team use their in-depth knowledge of these products to take full advantage of their versatility and provide our clients with efficient, bespoke solutions.

These products are particularly useful in the construction of agricultural and industrial use structures such as sheds and storage bays. Using modular concrete panels and blocks with steel supports, we can construct bays to specified designs that have a high degree of integrity and can withstand the necessary impact of heavy plant, for the storage of waste and recyclable materials, aggregate, produce and feed. Freestanding, interlocking, concrete blocks are also an excellent option for the construction of fire break walls and Red Leaf Group can design and install effective fire breaks that can be dismantled as required. We use modular concrete products to install temporary surfaces, paths and access roads, providing our clients with an adaptable, durable solution to these requirements.

The use of pre-cast concrete products in such construction projects allows for particularly rapid and efficient installation, meaning reduced programme times and cost efficiency. The modular nature of these products also lends itself to flexible design options and the reemployment of blocks and panels into different structures when desired.

Red Leaf Group are able to provide high quality individual concrete products such as kentledge blocks or counterweight products to suit various requirements.
