Pre-cast concrete specialist, Supreme Concrete, has become the first UK manufacturer to offer a 24-hour turnaround service on all enquiries for its pre-stressed concrete floor beams, enabling contractors and architects to dramatically reduce the time taken to produce drawings and quotations for major commercial and residential projects.
The move, which follows news that the company has increased floor beam production and expanded distribution at its Sittingbourne plant, is in response to growing national demand for high performance suspended beam and block flooring systems.
The new market-leading service answers customer feedback that the existing market standard turnaround on enquiries of 5-days or more is leading to delays in finalising estimates for major projects, and could be pushing contractors to over-specify less cost-effective ground and intermediate flooring options. It means that customers can now expect to receive technical drawings and full quotations for planned floor beam installations on a next-day basis.
Supreme is backing up the new offer with a dedicated technical help-line that will enable merchants, contractors and end users to get immediate specialist technical advice and support on all floor beam installations.
Widely used in domestic and commercial ground floors, and to provide additional sound insulation to domestic upper floors, beam and block suspended floors have been growing in popularity because they are quick to install without specialist skills. By reducing foundation requirements and cutting out hardcore and oversite concreting, they not only save cost, but reduce site preparation and have the added benefit of creating an immediate working platform, allowing early access to other trades.
“Supreme has a long history of working alongside customers, using special software to design the most economical flooring solution for individual projects and then manufacturing the high performance prestressed beams for a fully bespoke flooring solution”, said Tim Wright, Supreme’s Sales Director. “With the new 24-hour turnaround we are now leading the market in every aspect of floor beam design, manufacture and installation support.”
