The Xella Silka Element Challenge was completed in just under six hours, and Lisa from Crawley Borough Council wins the iPad!

A team of just three MFS heroes built the structural walls of a one bedroom apartment, using Xella’s Silka large-format blocks and Lissmac mini-cranes LIVE at South East Construction Expo on Thursday 26th September 2019.

The Challenge began at 8am and completed only 5 hours, 55 minutes and 7 seconds later.

All 2,500 visitors to the Expo were able to view MFS hard at work from the Xella Lounge and many enjoyed a VIP lunchtime reception. The two Xella presentations on ‘Building the Future’, were well attended and included a demonstration of their Hololens technology.

Koen Buyck, CSO Xella UK, said, “The need for new methods of construction in the UK and the focus from Xella on the digitalised way of building through the Building Information Modelling (BIM) process simply has to be successful!”   

iPad winner: Lisa from Crawley Borough Council guessed the closest to the finish time and was the lucky winner of a 32GB iPad.
