Project Challenges

Tilt up concrete walls and skillion roofs to warehouse for economies of construction where function is more important than form. Supporting suspended wall slab to second floor while first and second floor slabs were being poured. Concrete legs were extended from the wall slab to ground floor while the floors were being poured, these were then later cut out.

Supporting roof structure over office while first and second floors were being poured. The supporting structure for the roof had to be extended down to ground floor while first and second floors were being poured then extensions cut out later.

Close proximity to surrounding processes required strict site access requirements, stringent OHS documenting and reporting protocols implemented and public access control in place during construction.
