The striking riven-textured floor finish in the new Earth Galleries at the Natural History Museum, London, is manufactured from concrete and coloured using a range of products from LM Schofield Europe to create the effect of a volcanic lava flow.

Nine thousand glass-reinforced cement panels from Techcrete are being used as an architectural lining for the platforms, concourses, elevator and lift-lobby areas of two new stations on the £440 million Heathrow Express. The panels are clipped into position and the joints sealed with an epdm dust seal.

As part of the redevelopment of the Royal Opera House in London, Bison Structures has provided 461 precast wall panels. Full-scale trials carried out to test sound insulation found that the insulation levels were 26 per cent better than required by the project.

Tarmac Precast Concrete is to supply 92 gantry beams and 184 A- frame supports for the dbfo M1/A1 link project near Leeds. The new gantry has been designed to span greater carriageway widths than was previously achievable and the use of the single-piece supporting 'A' frames permits fast construction.

Lignacite's Apollo Spirit White masonry was specified for the main entrances of the Wexham Springs office development near Slough, which is built on the site of the previous bca headquarters. Architect for the scheme was Broadway Malyan.
