EV Civils announces launch of EZ Block
Engineering firm EV Civils has announced the launch of its new sister company, EZ Block.
EZ Block will provide reduced carbon concrete block bases for EV chargers, engineered to save time, money and the environment.
The blocks are designed to provide a sturdy and secure foundation for charging stations and are an ideal solution to provide a uniform finish on a civils site regardless of the installer, the firm claims.
Key features of the block include the base being constructed of a high-quality 38% reduced embodied carbon concrete with the formula giving the block a full 5kN strength above ordinary concrete, the company claims.
The announcement comes as the government aims to install 300,000 charge points by 2030 with monthly installations needing to increase from 806 currently to 3,130 to hit the target. The new block aims to speed-up installations while maintaining a sustainable solution for the long term.
Director of EZ Block, Craig Hibbert, said: “As electric vehicles become more common, it’s important to ensure that the processes of installing charging stations also remain as sustainable as possible.
Our new base provides a simple, yet effective solution that allows for quick installs no matter the weather with one of our key aims to facilitate same day installs.”
“With technological advancements moving as quickly as they are, we are looking to offer a further reduction of up to 80% in the very near future.”
