Both competitors have managed to hobble back into work with blisters and stories of woe.

Gaynor the bunny girl crossed the line first for Wallbarn in 2011 and remains the fastest woman in construction with a previous best of 4 hours 10 minutes.

paving pads on podium deck project Olympic Village

Wallbarn is now supplying four separate contractors on the Olympic Athletes’ Village in east London.

Not only were we specified as suppliers of ASP support pads for paving on the courtyards, terraces and walkways for the accomodation blocks;


but we are now also supplying supports for timber decking and Megapds on other areas.

Wallbarn anticipates supplying a lot more of both hard and soft landscaping products on this site right up until scheduled completion in the late summer of 2011.


Wallbarn Megapads will tolerate a weight loading of 800kg per unit. Using standard 450 x 450mm paving slabs this equates to almost 4 tonnes per m2!

Recent testing has shown the high strength and quality of our Megapads, giving applicators full assurance that even at the highest level of 620mm Megapads can take care of even the biggest loads on roof decks, balconies and pedestrian areas.
Full certification can be obtained by contacting the sales office.
