Our Solution

SDG, being a long-standing partner of Max Frank Group were tasked with the supply of the Max Frank Pecafil® system.

Permanent formworks systems such as Pecafil offer a time saving and cost-effective method of constructing reinforced concrete foundations compared to the traditional erect, prop and strike shuttering methods.

Benefits of Pecafil:

  • Reduced working space requirements
  • Minimal overdig and cartaway
  • Offsite fabrication of panels
  • No specialist trades required
  • Concrete saving
  • Potential to eliminate concrete blinding
  • Faster method of construction

SDG working with Todd Architects designed and supplied a unique jointing system of acoustic ceilings expertly installed by Castle Ceilings.

SDG are the supply partner of Bekaert Murfor Compact, which was used to reinforce the external masonry. Used by MG Construction Murfor Compact offered a fast, simple and economical way of reinforcing masonry walls.

SDG working alongside Doran Consulting from design stage right through to advising the construction team on site reference installation best practice for bridge bearings at this Belfast project.

LIV Student Accommodation with over 11 floors of Shearail® used to increase the shear resistance of a slab, and safety transfers the shear load from the slab to the column.

At SDG our knowledge of the impact of the correct acoustics in different environments grows it is no surprise that the education sector is one area where you can’t afford to be complacent.

Through the use of the BT turnbuckle on these LIDL store projects it has been possible to reduce the temporary bracing, increase safety and shorten the assembly time for the precast wall elements , it ticks all our the boxes. We are excited to implement it in our future projects.

SDG have always gone above and beyond for us. With SDG’s technical support our team have the ability to use the most effective and innovative solutions to improve quality, save time and perform more effectively.

I spoke to Ciaran Donnelly and after a few subsequent drawings emailed back and forth we agreed on the detail. SDG had the assembly on site within 3 days and saved us a lot of time on site with cutting and welding. We were able to lower the assembly into place in one piece with no concerns. I would most definitely engage in this service again.
