Principal Contractor


During the design process our team worked closely with Robertson to present the benefits of a concrete design using PT slabs would provide significant benefits compared to a structural steel frame. These included a four-week reduction in the build time, increased insulation and fire resistance properties, and a reduced number of support columns providing client flexibility for use of floor areas.

As a result of this input our team was employed to build the substructure and superstructure works for the eight-storey building, in addition to the design of the PT floor-slabs. The substructure works included construction of piles caps, ground beams and under-slab drainage including an RC basement and RC service tunnels.
