Harris Free School Programme - FARRANS
Tyrone Forwork have recently completed 3 insitu concrete frame structures for the Harris Free School Programme in London. These were delivered on programme meeting all challenging deadlines set. The frames included fair faced finishes to soffits, stairwells and feature walls; the finishes achieved exceeded the specification much to the Client's satisfaction. Tyrone Forwork were engaging with Health & Safety, design innovation, and complex logistics, providing key decision making and supervision. Many thanks to Barry and the team for the success of these projects.
CCE ASRS project - CHALCROFT
TFW commenced on the CCE ASRS project on 12th September 2016. In task in front of them was to place and fix some 450+ tonne of steel to lower and upper mat cage (600mm elevation) and toed in on an outer ring beam to form a new ASRS slab measuring 150m x 50m. The task at hand had access / egress and logistics issues due to the elevated piles, some 560 number in total each with 6 number 1meter T16 bars protruding from same. There was also a Despatch interface wall that had its engineering challenges to overcome during the construction of the main ASRS slab. A strict sequence of pour dates had to be met in order to satisfy a client driven follow on contractor and also to accommodate follow on trades for the principle.
Engineering and quality issues by others added to the original TFW scope in a significant manner. TFW where tasked with remedial works to the pile reinforcement on a large scale. TFW were instructed to source Ancon fittings to accommodate clients engineer requests. This task in itself was a long and monotonous exercise. TFW were under constant surveillance by the clients reps and clients engineering reps on the placement of some 1000+ Ancon couplers in P1-P4 slab. P1 by far the most challenging as the top mat was already in place. Despite these obstacles and testing times TFW never complained. The workforce when above and beyond with best for project outcomes foremost in their minds.
Late changes to already installed day joint positions were also carried out without aggravation.
All ASRS slab pours, 4 in total and some 3400m3 of concrete poured in total were carried out on time with the only delay being weather driven. The ASRS / Despatch critical path wall pours were carried out in an efficient manner and delivered earlier than the program date, this in itself allowed follow on trades early scope release and work fronts to satisfy a very demanding client.
TFW are a contractor friendly company, they will go out of their way to assist site issues, very quick to offer solutions and quick to respond to the principle contractor requests. The site team are hardworking, courteous , very considerate and conscientious. I would highly recommend TFW to any contractor / client going forward. I would 100% employ the services of TFW in the future.

Tyrone Formwork first worked for Farrans in 2009 constructing the reinforced concrete frame for a new Trauma Theatre project on a very restricted site within a live acute hospital facility. From the outset they engaged fully with site management to ensure high standards of Health and Safety were maintained whilst delivering on the programme, quality and budgetary targets. Tyrone Formworks performance on this project demonstrated their capability and as a result they have continue to deliver for us throughout the UK. Barry and his team are a pleasure to work with adopting a collaborative approach with not only the main contractor but other sub-contractors on site. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Tyrone Formwork and wish them every success for the future.
