Kingerlee Keep Their Eye on the Ball

'Ball former' technology was used in the construction of a suspended concrete slab in a £4m home in Berkshire. Spheres made of recycled polyethylene were used to form the main slab including a large-span terrace. The slab is around 35% lighter than an equivalent solid floor, requiring less column support to achieve the required spans. It is thought that it is the first time the method, which uses technology from Swiss firm Cobiax, has been used on a domestic property on conventional decking in this country.
