VJ Technology Case Studies

VJT Technology have been involved in a range of high profile projects over recent years, from the refurbishment of Hastings Pier to the emergency repairs at the Dawlish Flooding site.

After receiving a substantial order by Amalgamated Construction Ltd, VJT were able to supply and deliver every item ordered before 9am the following day. The site was the Dawlish rail flooding disaster, and due to the quick reaction time of the VJT team, contractors were able to continue to work tirelessly to get the railway back in safe working order quickly.
The traditional method of using slow curing mortar was considered inefficient by project managers. The risk of overrunning and potential added cost of line closer were considered major problems and were avoided completely with the help of VJT.

VJ Technology supplied Anchors to the Civil Engineering team for the construction of a new road tunnel. Initially, these anchors were used as temporary fixings for ventilation and electrical services to support the TBM during early construction. However, throughout the project, VJT helped solve a range of specific problems.

VJ Technology were tasked with re-designing and value engineering brackets used to secure composite panels to concrete slabs. Using a sophisticated software design package the number of anchors reduced by half, due to the decision to use a high performance FZA undercut anchor instead.

Following an incident with an abrasive wheel, Sellafield prohibited the use of such high risk tools on the Nuclear Establishment. This lead to financial and project completion pressures on the sub-contractors and in particular the M&E contractors.

VJT won an initial order of over 400,000 stainless steel fixings to be supplied to the prestigious Hastings Pier. With the potential over a further 200,000 to follow, worked closely with the TimberCraft team from day 1. VJT also supplied all associated products for the project which involves laying over 45 miles of hardwood decking.

The original enquiry from the MPT site was to test lifting loops, but it became apparent that this was not as simple as first thought. The challenge was to lift the rail bridge beams that dated from the original construction of the beams. These rebar loops had been protected by ‘pitch’ for many decades but the integrity of the loops was largely unknown.

When asked to demonstrate power drills with low vibration, the VJT team naturally turned to the Makita range. However, when the Technical Team arrived on site it became apparent that the actual requirement was for a drilling machine that offered little vibration to the structure of the building itself.
