Hanson is the leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry. We produce aggregates (crushed rock, sand and gravel), ready-mixed concrete, asphalt, cement and cement related materials and operate around 300 manufacturing sites, employing over 3,500 people.
Our national distribution means that we are ideally suited to serve the HS2 project along its entire length, supported by strategically located concrete plants, aggregates quarries and distribution depots along the route.
We can supply key materials required for the HS2 project, including low carbon concrete for precast tunnel segments, sleepers and slab track, sprayed concrete, rail ballast and bulk fill aggregates.
We have supplied our high quality materials to a range of major infrastructure schemes in the UK including Crossrail, Channel Tunnel Rail Link into St Pancras, Canary Wharf, Terminal 5 Heathrow airport and the Thames Gateway. We also have early involvement in the Hinkley Point project.
