National Glass Facility at Geebung QLD

Douglas Constructions continue to choose Dramix fibres for their warehouse projects

Douglas Constructions look to Dramix again for the best solution to their latest project, a new warehouse facility at Geebung in Queensland for National Glass. Not only were they able to speed up the project to meet the tight timeframe, but they were able to use a number of different design solutions to accommodate the varying areas within the facility. The 12,500m2 warehouse was supplied by Boral Concrete and placed by ShepCon in a short timeframe, and included areas of saw-cut slabs, saw-cut free Jointless slabs, and a combination of fibre and conventional mesh in some areas.

Technical solution:

  • 150mm thick slabs with Dramix steel fibres at 30kg/m3 and 20kg/m3

Benefits

Dramix fibre only Jointless slabs were able to eliminate the need for any saw-cuts in some of the large open format areas, and the design solution was able to be adjusted to incorporate saw-cuts, and sometimes mesh, in areas where large trenches and set-downs were required.
