Aggregate Industries has become a supplier to retirement living specialist McCarthy & Stone, with Charcon Construction Solutions and its Building Products team completing a range of projects and orders in 2017.

The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder; McCarthy & Stone’s specialist area is apartments for the elderly, where they offer independent living with a plethora of on-site support services.

Charcon Construction Solutions, Aggregate’s precast concrete products division, has been involved in 24 of its developments this year, supplying and installing products, with many more scheduled for next year.

The Charcon team have really showcased a properly nationwide service, having been involved in sites in Morpeth (North East) to Exmouth (Devon) and Benllech (Anglesey) to Ely (Cambridgeshire). 

Charcon have commonly installed 150mm pre-stressed concrete Hollowcore flooring and precast concrete stairs to Ground and Upper floors in each McCarthy & Stone building.

Hollowcore flooring units offer a flexible and cost effective answer to flooring propositions, because of the spans and widths of units available. Each McCarthy & Stone development will typically consist of between 2,500 to 4,000 square metres of Hollowcore flooring.

The precast concrete stairs are manufactured offsite guaranteeing a bespoke quality product that is speedy, safe and cost effective to install.
