Including 2 hotels, indoor football pitch, fitness and rehabilitation centre, swimming pool, spectator seating and basic infrastructure, this high-profile project required a sustainable, locally sourced solution. For the foundations, footings, retaining walls, drainage and floor slabs of the National Football Centre, Eco Phoenix concrete was supplied from Tarmac.
Eco Phoenix (fly ash based) BS EN CEM IV/B-V 32,5N - LH
Low CO2, Eco Phoenix cement that contains more than 40% siliceous fly ash. Certified low heat of hydration, minimised risk of early-age thermal cracking, risk of ASR and chemical attack on concrete in aggressive ground conditions.
Low HeatCertified low-heat bulk cement which helps prevent thermal cracking in large concrete pours.
Eco Phoenix has much less embodied carbon than any ordinary Portland cement. This makes it a much more sustainable choice of construction material.
Resistance to Sulfate Attack & Aggressive Ground
Due to its high fly ash content Eco Phoenix is highly sulfate resisting & carries the BS 8500 ‘+SR’ suffix.
Resistance to Chlorides
Eco Phoenix is inherently more resistant to ingress of chloride than Portland Cement.
Resistance to CarbonationThe use of designed concrete containing CEM IV/B-V is permitted in all carbonation classes.
