Lafarge pod all ready for quarry open days
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Lafarge unveiled its pod, a 360° Experience Room that uses surround-sound technology to allow visitors to experience what life in a quarry is like at the Ecobuild trade show in London earlier this year, and now it will be used for the first time at a series of open days the company is running at its Mountsorrel granite quarry, County Leicestershire, England, on 6, 7, 12 and 13 May.
Visitors will be able to watch a four-minute presentation on how Lafarge works, which will give them visual access to previously restricted areas.
Quarry manager Angus Shedden said: "The pod is an amazing piece of kit. It truly allows the public to get up close and personal to the sights and sounds of quarry working without being anywhere near the rock face.
"People will be able to experience things which they would never be able to in real life - like a quarry blast right in front of their eyes."
