From Design To Installation You'll Be In Safe Hands With Coltman Precast Concrete


Coltman Precast Concrete is continuing to build on its reputation as one of Britain's leading suppliers of quality structural precast concrete products to the building and construction industry.

The West Midlands based company is a major supplier of precast concrete components to the housing, commercial, industrial, health and leisure sectors of the construction industry nationwide.

Established in 1972, Coltman's product range includes prestressed hollowcore wideslab and solid prestressed wideslab for flooring and roofing, staircases, landings, balconies, terracing and wall units, as well as bespoke products.

Customers include some of the country’s leading names in architecture, construction, civil engineering, housebuilding and property developments and it has been involved in numerous prestige projects, ranging from multi-million pound city centre redevelopments and quality housing, to civic cultural centres and premier sports arenas.

Coltman produces in excess of 114,250 tonnes of precast concrete each year, consisting of 250,000 square metres of prestressed hollowcore flooring and 4,000 cubic metres of bespoke precast concrete products.

The highly experienced design teams have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of a comprehensive range of projects and applications to ensure the right products for each and every job.

The company has ISO 9001-2000 Quality Assurance and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System accreditation and every product is subject to continuous inspection and testing by the Quality Control department.

Daily tests are carried out by the quality control teams and products are also selected at random for more intensive testing, often to complete destruction, in order to ensure that they fully meet the most stringent design requirements.

Safety is another vital consideration at Coltman and this begins at the initial design stage. Consideration is given by designers to risk-reduction during the handling, lifting and positioning of the finished precast concrete products.

Coltman's emphasis on both quality and safety is maintained with a comprehensive on-site installation service, including the provision of a suitable and passive fall arrest system in the form of air bags or safety netting.

A competent and CITB trained site team carry out installation of all units in accordance with the Code of Practice For Safe Erection Of Precast Concrete and the company is a member of the British Safety Council, The British Precast Concrete Federation and the Precast Flooring Federation.

Under its well-established management team of Nigel Gilbert and Ian Gould, who have been with the company 21 years and 28 years respectively, the company continues to face a bright future. “As an independent company we have enjoyed planned, consistent growth and have built up an enviable reputation for the quality of our products and service, combined with a safe approach, as well as for the excellent relationships which we have developed with our customers”, said Director Nigel Gilbert.
