BASF assists record-breaking concrete pour

A total of 16,000 litres of BASF admixtures were used in a record-breaking concrete pour at The Shard in London. This pour is the largest UK continuous concrete pour to date, lasting 35 hours and beating the schedule on both time and volume.

BASF admixtures were also used in the structure’s core. This core was slip-formed in reinforced concrete and progressed at an impressive rate of three metres per day. The concrete was pumped 250 meters high during construction of the central core.
