Concrete Canvas® CC5
In August 2018, the first installation of Concrete Canvas® (CC) was carried out by utilising 32 batch rolls of Concrete Canvas® to protect the bund where electrical pylon sit on. Due to the existing sensitive infrastructure and limited access, conventional concreting method would have been complicated and therefore Concrete Canvas® was introduced. The slope were re-profiled and covered by Concrete Canvas® providing a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish as it conforms to the profile of the slope. Small drain was constructed along the side of the embankment where the CC terminated against an existing corrugated metal boundary fence to lead surface water to toe drain. The project was completed within 8 days, 4 weeks earlier than completion date.
Application of Concrete Canvas® allows for a quick and permanent erosion protection for this bund embankment surrounding an electrical pylon. It was introduced as an alternative to conventional concreting due to its speed and ease of installation.
