OBR Construction continues to transform UK skylines to new heights, 1.4 miles of slipform and counting…
We are Industry leaders in High rise slip forms, and the go too contractor in the Market. Our growing reputation is based on our impeccable track record and time saving ability.
Slipform construction offers unrivalled performance in terms of speed and accuracy of construction aswell as the safe construction of high-rise RC structures.
Using Slipform techniques, the vertical core elements of multi storey RC frames may be removed from the floor construction cycle and away from the programme critical path.

John Sisk and Son Ltd, Runcorn Thermal Power Station
OBR have been working on the Runcorn Thermal Power Station as direct Reinforced Concrete works subcontractor to John Sisk & Son Ltd since August 2010. The contract value for OBR was in the order of £10 million over two phases, on which OBR provided the concrete and plant for their works. Phase 1 which is approximately £7.5m is substantially complete and Phase 2 is currently 50% complete and will be completed later this year. The scope of works included complex substructure and superstructure elements including the Waste Bunker which is approximately 80m long, 20m wide and with certain walls approaching 50m in height. The execution of works involved significant temporary works design which OBR managed diligently. To date OBR have delivered on Safety, Quality and Schedule on what we would regard as a very challenging project from a technical nature. The personal commitment of their Senior Management was a significant factor in their overall success. One significant factor in selecting OBR for a major scheme like Runcorn TPS was their capacity to deliver. OBR have executed projects for Sisk since 2000 and I have had personal experience on a number of projects dating back to that time. I would consider OBR for any Reinforced Concrete Works in the future and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
