Aggregate Industries has recently been awarded the contract to supply the concrete specifications for the development of the new town, Northstowe.

Eight miles North West of Cambridge City Centre, Northstowe is the first town to be built in the UK for 50 years and expects to be home to around twenty-five thousand people living in 10,000 new homes.

With multiple housing contractors on board, the project has presented some challenges, for example, each contractor working to the same deadlines means often requiring the same delivery slots. In addition, building inspector visits were held at the same time, meaning it was vital that concrete was poured beforehand ready for inspection. As a result, the Aggregate team has been working closely with each groundwork contractor to provide a tailored, flexible product supply and delivery to meet individual demands.

Tim Scrivens, procurement manager at Coinford Ltd comments: “Tim and has team have been a major asset to us throughout, leaving no stone unturned when it came to ensuring we had the exact specification of concrete required exactly as we needed it. We’re thrilled to have them on board as we commence future phases of works.”
