At One New Change, there is a new development that consists of three floors. It has 32,000m² of office space and 20,600m² of retail space. Also, there is a new rooftop space available for local residents, workers, and visitors to use.
Last week the team were on site to check progress on the Sir Robert McAlpine project at 1 Broadgate, City of London. J&P is supplying cast in channel ladders to William Hare Group and Jordahl JXA channels efficiently connect structural steel to concrete, negating the need for post-fixing or welding.
Our J-Sled product for façade connections, cast in channels for cladding connections and channels for elevator/lift connections are integral to the construction of this fantastic, iconic landmark - No.8 Bishopsgate, London
Our punching shear reinforcement JDA JORDAHL® is used to transfer high transverse forces with low formwork and reinforcement requirements and also to optimise the use of space. The punching shear rail resistance can be increased by 50%, when compared to foundations without punching shear reinforcement, even by 96% compared to ceiling slabs without punching shear reinforcement.
Cast in channels are likely to be used in most commercial construction projects. JORDAHL® cast in channels are used in conjunction with easy twist-in T bolts that together, provide safe and adjustable concrete connections for the resistance of tension and shear loads.
J&P Building Systems supplied H-BAU ISOPRO® H-BAU Rapidobat Cretcon® products to Henry Construction Projects Limited on the Turnmill project in London. The ISOPRO® provides a thermal break to a precast concrete corbel, spanning the building perimeter at each floor level.
Last week, Robert Selwa conducted a site visit on the residential-led mixed-use scheme at 300 Manor Road, Canning Town. The project incorporates open space with green grid links to Star Park, and comprises three buildings.
The Tall Buildings Conference is set to be the premier networking opportunity of the year for anyone working in the high-rise sector. We will be showcasing our products that are featured in a number of high-profile tall building and commercial structures across the world.
A group of three sculptures by Steuart Padwick, officially launched in Glasgow with an industry panel discussing how the build’s 75% reduction in CO2 can be used to accelerate the construction sector’s Net Zero delivery.
RAPIDOBAT® by H-BAU Technik is a disposable formwork system for casting round and alternative shaped concrete columns. The casing tubes consist of multi-laminated paper layers, which are extremely robust. These formwork tubes can be specially treated depending on the demands on the exposed concrete and the architect’s requirements.
J&P Building Systems collaborates on COP26 Hope Sculpture: a showcase for a sustainable future with 75% lower carbon impact. We were pleased to supply H-BAU Rapidobat Cretcon formwork to enable an architectural finish to be achieved on the cement- free concrete support structure for the Hope Sculpture. The cement-free concrete support structure was securely anchored at its foundation using the Pfeifer Column Shoe system.
PENTAFLEX KB® metal water bars are fully coated on both sides with a special coating to provide reliable waterproofing at concrete joints. The bond between the special coating and new concrete prevents water infiltrating the joint and an embedment depth of 30 mm is enough to withstand water pressure of up to 5.0 bar.
The recovery in UK construction output gained further momentum in June, according to the latest survey of construction purchasing managers. Overall construction activity expanded at the fastest pace since June 1997, supported by another sharp rise in new orders.
JORDAHL® anchor channels with matching T-bolts create an excellent connection system for transferring loads to reinforced concrete components. Initial installation is fast and connections are easy to position accurately.
JORDAHL® anchor channels and bolts are a suitable system for safe and reliable anchoring of equipment such as overhead lines, signal systems, lighting as well as ventilation and exhaust systems in tunnels and supply structures.
Construction has bounced back quicker than expected from the Covid-19 pandemic and the industry will reach 2019 levels of output in 2022. By 2025, the industry will need to recruit an additional 217,000 new workers just to meet demand. That’s the forecast of the Construction Skills Network 2021-25, published by CITB this week.
J&P Building Systems has recently been informed by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) that three projects featuring structural connections provided by Jordahl have been selected for awards at the 2021 Tall + Urban Innovation Awards Conference.
We are pleased to announce that Jordahl have successfully obtained Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) for all versions of channels (JTA, JXA, JM, JXM), and the Punching Shear Reinforcement JDA. The documents have been issued by the third party verification body “Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V.” (Building and Environment Institute).
JORDAHL JAI Elevator Insulation is used to acoustically decouple elevator guide rail and machinery connections, while providing secure load transfer to concrete structures. The system significantly reduces impact sound transmission through elevator shaft walls and reduces disruptive noise levels experienced by building occupants in the vicinity of the elevator shaft.
JORDAHL® Channels and Accessories - Making Light Work of the Heaviest Loads. A new brochure is now available for download. Highly versatile, JORDAHL® anchor channels and T-bolts with European Technical Assessment (ETA) and other international approvals can be used in a wide variety of applications.
The advances in sealing technology systems with the introduction of the coated steel sheet provide a robust, cost-effective solution to provide rugged basement solutions to meet the ever-increasing demands of the client performance specifications.
PVC tapes, on the other hand, provide an active solution to sealing joints within basement construction and leaks should they occur are often associated with workmanship issues or compaction of the concrete around the joint.
The use of hydrophilic strips as a joint sealing system has been a long stay item for many as a standard joint sealing solution. It is often seen as a simple choice by the specifier and can be changed on site to suit construction sequence, should this change be required to accommodate revisions to the pour sequence.
Advances in the technology behind concrete mix design mean that specifiers of concrete for basement construction have a broader choice to achieve the desired end product to satisfy Euro Code requirements, but the weakness in any basement is the jointing.
Glass-fibre reinforcement has been around for over 30 years. It has successfully replaced traditional steel or stainless steel reinforcement on many projects that have specialist applications. One such application is sea defence structures where high levels of corrosion resistance are required.
J & P BALCON® from J&P Building Systems Ltd has recently been accepted as an LABC Registered Detail. The range of products comprise a thermally insulated and fully adjustable steel balcony to concrete connection system, for use on reinforced concrete floors or precast concrete/hollow-deck floors.
