In the construction and building industry, the demand for sprayed concrete services is considerable and we are among the few companies who are able to offer this service at a first-class level. Just like the name implies, the process consists of spraying the material directly onto the construction point or surface, instead of the usual pouring, laying and setting approach.

Due to the ease of applying the sprayed concrete, it can be quite the boon for restricted areas. Often, these locations are long distances from the point of access, making other methods impractical. Without the need to erect and transport huge formwork, the operator and the delivery hoses only need to be present at the workplace.

Among the general uses for sprayed concrete are silo structures, caissons and bank vaults. Underground construction projects such as storage reservoirs and water retaining structures like aqueducts also get their fair share of use out of spayed concrete too.

Whether you use sprayed concrete or a more traditional pouring technique it is important to keep joint sealing and waterproofing in mind. This is essential for ensuring the material is protected and there are no weak points. Joints can be a high wear area so it is crucial that protection is in place. We can help with this.

At Churchill Concrete Technology our services are considered to be some of the finest in the country. While concerns relating to the potential of concrete may be present, rest assured that it’s a durable and resilient material and can be made more so with the right joint sealing and waterproofing. If you have any questions about us, we would love to hear from you.
