Belfast sees largest concrete pour in Irish history

A concrete pour claiming to be the largest in Ireland’s history has taken place at the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter.

Stevenson Concrete and Stoneyford Concrete managed a single pour of 4,200 cu m to be the base of the £97 million Titanic Signature Project.

Lafarge supplied 1,700 tonnes of cement for the pour at the project to build the centrepiece of the 185 acre Belfast scheme.

Fifty trucks supplied six concrete pumps that worked throughout the night on the pour.

Lafarge Cement Ireland’s commercial manager Clive Grudgings said: “We had never been involved in a concrete pour on this scale – it is a landmark step not only for Belfast but for the whole construction industry. 

“It is exciting to be part of such as historic project - and appropriate that it is to commemorate Ireland’s most renowned maritime achievement.”

Harcourt Developments is undertaking a £15 billion redevelopment of Belfast’s historic Titanic Quarter.
