Bison Concrete Selected for Devon Jurassic Park

Bison Manufacturing’s market-leading precast concrete units have been used in the creation of a new Devon visitor attraction.

Working closely with main contractor Kier Construction, Bison manufactured and delivered 976m² of its 200mm deep Hollowcore slabs to form the first floor of the Seaton Jurassic Centre.

Opening to the public in late 2015, the £3 million indoor visitor centre will tell the story of the Jurassic Coast’s geology and marine ecology via interactive elements and will also include a café and gift shop.

Mike Nelson, Sales and Commercial Manager said:

“We’re thrilled to have provided our units for such an exciting project. By using precast concrete components, developers can help to ensure that construction timeframes are met, without the risk of adverse weather or low temperatures affecting the installation of structural elements.”

Stephen Ford, Quantity Surveyor at Kier Construction said:

“Having worked with Bison in the past, we were confident of their abilities to provide high quality, durable precast units for this project. We selected Bison’s Hollowcore flooring units not only for their structural efficiency, but for their reduced deadweight, which helped to simplify the installation process.”
