Aggregate Industries becomes trusted supplier to McCarthy & Stone

Construction materials supplier Aggregate Industries, has become a trusted supplier to retirement living specialist McCarthy & Stone, with its precast concrete products division Charcon Construction Solutions and its Building Products team, both completing a number of projects and orders this year alone.

McCarthy & Stone is the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder. The company specialises in apartments for older people, offering independent living with a range of on-site support services.

Charcon Construction Solutions has – to date – supplied and installed products at 24 of its developments in 2017, with many more in the pipeline to commence both this year and next.

With a framework agreement in place, and working on projects across all of McCarthy & Stone’s eight English regions, the Charcon Construction Solution team has supplied products to sites in Morpeth in the North East to Exmouth in Devon, and Benllech in Anglesey to Ely in Cambridgeshire – demonstrating a truly nationwide service.

Typically, Charcon Construction Solution supplies and installs 150mm pre-stressed concrete Hollowcore flooring and precast concrete stairs to Ground and Upper floors in each McCarthy & Stone building. Hollowcore flooring units can offer a flexible and economic answer to flooring challenges, due to the spans and widths of units available. Each McCarthy & Stone development will typically consist of between 2,500 to 4,000 m2 of Hollowcore flooring.

The precast concrete stairs are manufactured offsite to the exact requirements at Charcon Construction Solution’s manufacturing facility in Lound, North Nottinghamshire. This ensures a bespoke quality product that is quick, safe and cost effective to install. Supplying McCarthy & Stone two to four staircases per project, typically from Ground to Third floor levels, with variations depending upon particular developments.

However, it’s not just Hollowcore flooring and access solutions that the Aggregate Industries group supplies. It also supplies roofing, walling and blocks from its Building Products division. The team receives orders from senior buyers at McCarthy & Stone, as well as via their subcontractors, architects and even merchants.

One of the most recent jobs included supplying Bradstone reconstituted walling range for a development in Bath, a product which is widely accepted by planners for use in sensitive areas.

The moulds which are taken from natural stone recreate the subtle textures and characteristics of the virgin material and the wide range of authentic shades match the traditional originals which are now often unobtainable.

Richard Baldry, General Manager at Charcon Construction Solutions, said: “We have worked with McCarthy & Stone for many years now and have built a trusted partnership. Many companies come to us because of the multi-product and multi-discipline offering that Aggregate Industries can provide, as well as our readiness and capability to respond to our customers’ needs.”

David Thomas, Category Manager at McCarthy and Stone, said: “Aggregate Industries are a valued collaborative framework partner of McCarthy and Stone and play a critical role in ensuring our site construction programmes remain on time and to budget. There have been numerous examples of them going the extra mile over the last year and they have become a valued member of our extended team.”
