FM Conway targets house-builders with screed

Infrastructure services company FM Conway is expanding its materials portfolio to include flooring screeds for house-builders across London and the southeast.

FM Conway has formed a partnership with screeds specialist Gypsol, a subsidiary of Francis Flower, for the supply of anhydrite screed binders, which will be used to manufacture FM Conway’s new flowing screed product, Floscreed.

The company says that flowing screeds are becoming increasingly popular with house-builders because of the labour and time-cost savings they offer. 

Floscreed can be laid more than 10-times faster than traditional sand and cement-based products and can be walked over within 48 hours, FM Conway says, allowing other trades to access floors quickly.

By reusing anhydrite – a by-product of the chemical manufacturing industry – and diverting this waste away from landfill, the material has nearly 10-times less embodied carbon than sand and cement-based products. 

The screed will be delivered to contractors by volumetric mixer vehicles, which mix the material on site.

Tim Metcalf, aggregate and asphalt divisional director at FM Conway, said: “The ongoing expansion of FM Conway’s wider materials portfolio, which also includes concrete and recycled asphalt, strengthens our ability to meet London and the southeast’s infrastructure and building needs.

“It supports us in our broader aim to self-deliver materials and services wherever possible.  By using our own in-house teams, vehicles, equipment and materials, we can provide a reliable and cost-effective service for our customers and supply chain partners.”
