At the forefront of concrete flooring technology

Large Area Laser Screed Floors

Stanford is able to pour up to 3000m2 with each of its highly skilled installation teams to suit all ground and design conditions from VNA high tolerance floors to ASRS settlement critical facilities.

All floors are designed and constructed to The Concrete Society Technical Report 34 4th Edition published in 2013. The floor types outlined below allow us to deliver a high quality product for the following typical applications:

  • Free Movement for wide aisle racking, mezzanine installations and bulk storage
  • Defined Movement for VNA racking applications, generally up to 17m lift heights
  • Pile Supported floors to help limit settlement or for use on poor ground
  • Joint-free pours to help reduce maintenance in specific applications

Stanford provides successful flooring solutions for all project sizes from 1000m2 to over 150,000m2, suiting many blue chip clients.

  • Automotive, Aerospace and Manufacturing
  • VNA, Wide Aisle, ASRS and Specialist Pallet Storage
  • Multi level mezzanine, hanging garment and E commerce
  • Speculative, retained stock and investment use

Floors are constructed to suit wide-ranging ground conditions. Differing reinforcement specification, client requirements and surface regularity all help determine how the floor is constructed. Stanford has the experience to adapt its skilled techniques to supply all floor types.

  • Full Construction Packages – designed & installed, warranted & insured
  • Post Tensioned ground bearing slabs
  • Steel Fibre joint-free construction
  • High Tolerance specifications
  • Large Area Laser Screed
  • Design & Construction to TR34 4th Edition 2013

All flatness requirements are catered for and Stanford’s understanding of advances in Material Handling Equipment requirements, mean the floor can be detailed to provide high performance.

High Tolerance Defined Movement Floors

As the Laser Screed machine has dominated floor construction since the 1990s, Stanford Industrial Concrete Flooring has developed construction techniques that meet even the highest surface regularity requirements traditionally constructed using slow and laborious long strip methods.

Stanford has successfully installed floors using the Laser Screed to FM1, the tightest category for general (Free Movement) traffic in speculative buildings where VNA racking locations are unknown at the time of construction.

The highest classifications of Defined Movement surface regularity have also been constructed in this manner bringing all the advantages of automated construction to the high tolerance high performance end user.

Stanford regularly provide a top quality service, not only their activity on site, but also with their unparallelled understanding of the client interface.

Pile Supported Floors

Brownfield sites often necessitate slabs to be pile supported, as well as those situated on poor ground where deflection, settlement or loading criteria drive high performance requirements. Stanford designs and constructs these floors to the latest codes and design methods using traditional bar/fabric or steel fibre reinforcement. The reinforcement and construction method is chosen to suit client requirements and numerous facilities have benefited from this construction including Lidl, Farmfoods, Debenhams, Kuehne & Nagel and Airbus UK.

Decking and Hand Cast Floors

Stanford’s experienced teams install floors on all forms of metal and concrete deck systems. The construction of multi or high-level floors as well as high specification upper floors is accommodated, including specific surface regularity requirements for two story warehouses and multi level ASRS and racking systems. Construction is available either to a constant deck thickness for efficient composite properties or to a specific flatness requirement or datum control.
