1960 HRH DUKE OF EDINBURGH VISIT

28th October 1960 was an historic day for everyone at the Hounslow works when His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip paid a visit.

The Duke spent two hours visiting different departments and shops, to see the various processes employed in making prestressed building elements.

At the time the Hounslow Works produced 3000 tons a week of structural precast concrete, mainly hollow flooring units, prestressed bridge beams and piles, and precast columns and beams for multi-storey frame buildings.

Prince Philip was shown a demonstration in which a 16-storey block containing 427 dwellings, was erected in 65 minutes.
