Context

The Environment Agency required a temporary flood defence wall in North Lincolnshire and urgently needed 500 high-quality, high-strength blocks which didn’t contain any recycled materials.

The blocks had to be supplied within a matter of days so that they could be used to protect properties in North Lincolnshire from flooding. As Elite keeps over 800 blocks in stock and are experienced in delivering large amounts of blocks over short periods of time they were the ideal choice.

Product supplied

Interlocking Legato blocks are made from pre-cast concrete and as soon as the order was placed, Elite began to dispatch the blocks to the Environment Agency's yard in North Lincolnshire.

The whole off-loading process is made safe and simple by the fact that each block has its own cast-in lifting pin anchor – so for off-loading all that’s required is a suitable machine with a chain and hook.

Once all 500 blocks had been delivered, the blocks were placed in strategic locations designed to prevent flood waters inundating local houses and businesses.

Outcome

Just a few days later the walls were in place and ready for the late autumn storms that were set to batter the Lincolnshire region.
