Hanson Aggregates Case Study
Our Fortress blocks have been used extensively at the Hanson Aggregates site on Cardiff docks. Two walls are used to retain large piles of sand where dredgers offload. These walls were constructed using our Fortress 1600x800x800mm blocks in a stretcher bond pattern. Due to the size of the sand piles the bottom row of blocks were secured directly to the dock.
A pedestrian walkway and a number of aggregate bays have also been built from Fortress blocks which demonstrates the various uses our blocks can have on any site - with long term value as they can always be re-arranged if a sites needs change as time goes on.
