Although the majority of the pattern imprinted concrete work that we do is on driveways and patios, we have also done more commercial installations with our McDonald’s and KFC drive-thru’s, which you can see in our case studies section here. We are delighted to announce that we have just won the contracts to supply and fit the concrete for two more McDonald’s Drive-Thru restaurants, one in Nottingham and the other in Audenshaw.
These specialist jobs require a slightly different specification in terms of the size, materials used and techniques employed, but the basic principles are exactly the same. The extra load that a drive-thru gets requires that the concrete is 50% thicker, and a steel mesh is employed within the concrete to further strengthen it. The concrete itself is exactly the same consistency as we use for domestic driveways, and it is imprinted and finished in exactly the same manner.
Work on the Nottingham drive-thru was started on Friday, and as you can see in the photos is going very well. We will have a full case study for you to look at once the job is complete. We start work on the Audenshaw project in March.
