New ‘Daisy Chain’ Day Care Centre, Teesside
Ancon has provided 4,000 wall ties and insulation retaining clips, free of charge, to the build of a new Day Care Centre for the Daisy Chain charity in Teesside.
Based on a 5 acre farm in Norton, Daisy Chain provides respite care and support for children with autism and their families.
Ancon has joined a number of leading building product manufacturers and distributors by supporting this construction project with materials and technical advice.
Duane Hanson, co-founder of the charity, said,
Contributions from companies such as Ancon make a great difference to the project and the lives of the families we support.
When complete, this centre will result in a comprehensive support facility that is unique in the country. It will include a sensory play area, IT and Music suites, art and craft areas, conference facilities and provide services, courses and workshops for our families. It will also be a brand new home for our Sibling Support service, which will prove to be crucial for our families.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. At Daisy Chain our vision is to provide a range of support measures that take account of the needs of the whole family rather than just the child who has autism.

Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
Ancon is pleased to announce that it has successfully transitioned its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 respectively, well ahead of the September 2018 industry deadline.
Now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm, the Ancon ST1 wall tie range has been extended to suit high-rise masonry buildings with insulated cavities up to 225mm wide.
