Do You Have A Screeding Project We Can Help With?

Departure from Datum

LASER LEVEL SURVEY

According to British Standards, a maximum departure of 15mm from datum is considered to be satisfactory for large areas of screed intended for normal purposes, and can be measured by a 2m standard grid, using standard surveying methods.

Screed fails Departure from Datum Tolerance –

Depending on the intended use and the area to be screeded, it is important to specify the maximum permissible departure of the level of the finished surface from an agreed datum plane, right at the design stage of a screeding project.  As per the British Standards Code of Practice, a departure of up to 15mm is considered satisfactory for large areas. However, the permissible departure from datum is much lower for smaller areas, and high levels of accuracy is essential for small rooms, along the line of partition walls, in the vicinity of door openings and in areas where specialized instruments are to be placed directly on the floor.

Level surveying for assessing the departure from datum can be done to high levels of accuracy with modern electronic ‘total stations’. In addition to yielding highly accurate measurements, these instruments also help to eliminate manual errors in log keeping by facilitating electronic storage of survey results. Rotary laser level is also common levelling equipment that is used for achieving high accuracy results

The accurate measurement of levels for screeds and substrate levels play a major role in controlling the costs and ensuring high quality standards for the screed. Level survey measurements are generally required for:

  • Assessing the level of concrete substrates before commencing screed installation
  • Assessing the departure from datum of screed after installation
  • Measuring the average level of the installed screed

Right from determining the minimum /maximum depth requirements of screed and ensuring the compliance of screed levels with initial specifications to settling disputes regarding deviation against contract, accurate level surveying is a crucial aspect in screeding projects.

When an inaccurate assessment of level of the concrete substrate could lead to a wrong estimation of screed depth which in turn could translate into- higher concrete, higher costs and longer drying period in case the assessed level is lower than the actual measurement; a higher assessed level than the actual level could lead to judgements of lower screed depth, which can drastically affect the quality and integrity of the screed.

These screed pumps are a mobile representation of our business. That’s why it’s so important that everything is clean and maintained to only the highest of standards. When you engage with CSC, you know exactly what to expect. #highstandards #dotherightthing #qualityandvalue #ukconstruction #constructionuk #cscscreeding ...

Over 2,600m2 of Isocrete K Screed on M Bond with a mechanically prepared concrete base for the H&M store in Milton Keynes. Due to site restrictions and the requirement for a narrow footprint along the rear service road, we are supplying the sand via grab loader and contained in a roll on, roll off skip. This methodology works perfectly with our Mörtel Meister screed pumps with hydraulic skip and remote control shovel. Well done team! Great work #cscscreeding #isocrete #cpguk #screedingmiltonkeynes #shoppingcentre #ukconstruction #constructionuk ...

Mbond delivered and ready for redistribution to a new project in Oxford. We’ll be mechanically preparing the existing concrete slab, applying M Bond Extra and screeding with Isocrete Fast K. The area is circa 1800m2 and has a built in moveable racking system that will be used to archive documents produced in the college environment. Thank you to Morgan Sindall for entrusting CSC to deliver the project. #cscscreeding #cpguk #isocrete #approvedcontractor #flowcrete #screed #screeding #screedingoxford ...

Organisation is key to working in the screed business. Lots of bulk materials arriving to site, just in time. We always keep a reasonable level of stock to ensure we can top up as and when required. Keeping the operatives working with the minimum of downtime is the name of the game. ...

PP Fibres and Isocrete K Screed always at the ready for the CSC screed teams. It’s so important that we are prepared for all eventualities and that’s why we are always ready for work. #readyforwork #isocrete #cscscreeding #cscscreedteam #ppfibres ...
