This Report describes the Wimpey No-Fines (WNF) construction of walls in dwellings. From the mid-1940s onwards George Wimpey & Co Ltd built more than 300,000 dwellings that used no-fines concrete. Various types of Wimpey No-Fines bungalows, houses and low-rise blocks of flats and maisonettes were produced, ranging in height from one to six storeys. This report describes the basic method of construction and the results of inspections of sample properties.
