Industrial projects

From small factory complexes to large warehouses in the range of 2000m² – 20000m², we have extensive experience in the design and construction of industrial projects.

The majority of these projects were completed using the tilt-up method of construction.

Our design philosophy has been to provide an economical structure, using the structural advantages of tilt-up walls and keeping the building process efficient.

Some of the notable projects include the following:

 

Commercial projects

The projects have utilised different construction types in structural framing and external facades that have included conventional formed concrete floors, post tensioned floors, ultra-floor and bondek. The external facades include a combination of light weight framing using fibre cement sheeting fixed to steel framing, curtain wall glazing, tilt-up wall panels and other facade treatments.
