Tarmac has nearly 7,000 employees working at more than 400 strategically located sites all across the UK. These include 120 quarries, 74 asphalt plants, 100 Readymix concrete plants, 22 contracting offices, as well as 2 cement and lime plants. Some of the landmark projects that Tarmac has made a major contribution to include the following:
With more than 26 miles of tunnels connecting 40 stations, Crossrail is one of the most ambitious civil engineering projects ever undertaken in the UK. Tarmac is supplying specially graded sand and aggregates for the construction of precast concrete components. It is also supplying bespoke self-compacting concrete for shaft lining.
The company also set up a dedicated aggregate recycling plant to process the excavation waste. Soil from this facility is shipped to Wallasea Island, South Essex to create a new 620-hectare RSPB bird reserve. Furthermore, the remaining material is recycled for re-use by the construction industry.
Tarmac Contracting used more than 450,000 tonnes of locally sourced blast furnace slag aggregate in the construction of this vital trunk road that links West Wales with the UK motorway network. This also makes it one of the most sustainable roads ever built. The company is also a leading provider of closed-loop reconstruction solutions that recycles old roads into new ones.
Tarmac laid the runway at Heathrow in 1944 and has played an integral part in its growth ever since. The company more recently supplied specialist lime for soil stabilisation, as well as aggregates, cement and mobile batching plants for the construction of Terminal 5. In 2013, Tarmac also completed the resurfacing of the southern runway, an area spanning 170,00o sq m.
Blackpool Coastal Defence
The old town’s sea wall has protected Blackpool from coastal erosion and flooding for more than 100 years. However, it was badly in need of repair and much of the original structure needed replacing. As a result, Tarmac worked closely with sea defence specialists Birse Coastal and played an integral role in this ambitious £62 million contract.
Over the 4-year duration of the project, Tarmac supplied more than 44,000 cubic m of precast concrete and 65,000 cubic m of ready-mix concrete. In addition, deliveries had to be meticulously planned so that work could take place during limited tidal windows.
Drax Power Station
This power station in Selby, North Yorkshire, has the capacity to generate more than 7 per cent of Britain’s electricity. It is one of the biggest coal fired power stations in Europe, but also one of the cleanest and most efficient. This is thanks to the implementation of technologies such as flue gas desulphurisation.
Tarmac supply six out of the UK’s eight coal fired power stations with high purity limestone for flue gas desulphurisation. Together these plants produce 13,000 megawatts of power. This is enough to meet the total energy requirements of more than 13 million homes.
Tarmac also created a new super low carbon concrete for the construction of Unity Gardens. This is a pioneering social housing development in Spalding, Lincolnshire, designed by award-winning architect Jerry Harrall. All six earth-bunded homes are ‘energy positive’ because they are capable of generating more electricity than they use. They’re also ‘carbon negative’ because CO2 emissions are mitigated by a combination of insulation, ventilation and renewable energy.
