Why Beam and block slab is the ideal SolutionThe client opted to use Beam and Block as this provided an ideal solution to several problems. As the site was so steep there was no place to set up a big batching area for the production of concrete. The only means to deliver concrete on the site was the wheelbarrow. This was already proving challenging for the concrete elements that needed to be cast on site. Beam and block were ideal as they could be carried directly to their final placement spot.
