We recently had the opportunity to fly our drone over the Frasers Property Australia estate at Yatala Central in Queensland, where all we can see are warehouses built with Dramix Slabs. Frasers love Dramix steel fibre reinforced concrete slabs, and know the benefits they get from their facilities with them. And BOSFA have been very fortunate to have been able to work with a few different builders in their estate at Yatala Central to complete these five warehouses, with hopefully more to come.

The first was the O-I Glass warehouse constructed by De Luca, with the slabs placed to a very high quality finish by Austech Concrete Constructions, followed by the OJI Fibre Solutions and Beaulieu Australia facilities, also constructed by De Luca, with slabs placed, this time by S & C Concrete Services. Then more recently McNab have just about completed the Schutz Packaging Systems warehouse, with the slabs placed by ShepCon QLD, and under construction right now is the Reward Hospitality facility being constructed by Tomkins Commercial and Industrial.

Great projects, working with Great Builders and Concrete Contractors, for a World Class Developer, completing an entire estate, doesn’t get much better than that!

S & C Concrete Services have placed another top level Dramix Jointless Slab at the new QLD Glass facility, and both Tomkins and the Port Authority are so impressed that it has now been set as the benchmark for their future projects. And on top of that, they were able to pour all 7000m2 in just 6 days!

McVeigh Consulting realised the significant advantages of removing all joints in an External H.D. Pavement, and so designed a “Seamless” Dramix 4D Combi Slab for the new 10,000m2 facility at the Port of Brisbane. Logos were again keen to have this solution for their new facility, which was built by McNab as one of their first steel fibre reinforced projects. QR Contracting placed the Boral concrete to a very high quality finish, in very tough conditions, and the facility is in full operation within a few weeks.

Have you ever wondered how Dramix (SRFRC) would perform in a retail space? If so, head down to the Spud Shed in Baldivis. Project was constructed with large panel pours and utilised Dramix 3D fibres. A fantastic finish was achieved and now over 12months old the slabs look immaculate.
Well done to the builders: PS Structures
Well done to the concrete contractors: S&C Concrete

Douglas Constructions have constructed another Dramix steel fibre warehouse slab at Larapinta, again designed and specified by McVeigh Consulting engineers. Achieving the best possible solution, whilst saving significant time, Dramix was used in the Footings and Slabs. Bess Concrete placed very high quality floors in a short timeframe, with the ready-reinforced concrete supplied by Holcim.

WWWHP (World Wide Warehouse Hai Phong) continued building the next phrase of their renting warehouse. The project is a suspended slab with 5400m2 floor area. The client wanted to have a flat floor according to Fm2 – TR34, the floor has been cast using a strip method, utilising a Dramix®  4D Combi slab solution enabling tight crack control and removing expansion joints.

This project is for the external pavement for the new Dinding facility in Lumut. The pavement is reinforced with Dramix®  3D fibre for heavy traffic load. The slab has a broomed finish to add friction on the road for traffic. This project is still ongoing, Main contractor by ETEC (Korea) consultant by Royal Haskoning and external slab executed by Sathia Construction.

A 17.000m2 warehouse owned by LBL Prime Properties Inc in Manila. This project is awarded to our accredited flooring contractor, Nippontech, who did a good job in casting the slab on grade solution for the owner. Dramix 3D 80/60BG was used in this project with guidance from Nippontech to ensure that the subbase and the gravel bed was prepared well before the execution of the floor. Subbase preparation is key to the success of any slab on grade project and ensure longevity and performance from the product. Well done to Nippontech.

Sentul City, one of the largest residential developer in Indonesia starts to use Dramix® steel fibre to reinforce their road pavement. The job was done by contractor PT Infratek, an infrastructure specialist with Dramix® experience having completed, Griya Idola Industrial Park project previously. This project adds to the growing list of Dramix® projects in Indonesia.

The project was designed under ‘crack width’ consideration. With benefit of steel fibre, we could utilize the performance of steel fibre together with conventional reinforcement to act as moment resistance and crack control at the same time. The design provided a cost effective solution which met both ultimate and serviceability requirements.

High performance steel fibre Dramix®  4D plus mesh was used to carry 140kN post load. The Combi Slab solution makes it possible to design a monolithic slab, without joints, to meet tight rotation requirements from ASRS supplier. Providing an exceptional finished product.

Coca Cola Amatil new Distribution Facility in Queensland Australia, a 30,000m2 warehouse. This warehouse includes 9,000m2 of High-Bay Racking with an automated storage handling system. At 35 metres high, and with post loads of 27 Tonnes, the most suitable solution was a Seamless Combi Slab.   The remaining 21,000m2 uses our more typical Jointless slabs with Dramix 3D 65/60BG at 30kg/m3. With Dramix 4D initialised in the many foundations on the project as well.   McVeigh consulting engineers worked very closely with BOSFA and Bekaert® in determining the right solution for the Combi Slab to accommodate the different sorts of loading that will be applied to the slab. And they were able to utilise our Bekaert® Software to confirm the designs themselves for the fibre only slabs and the foundations.  A great example of everyone working together, with the tools available, to achieve the best possible solution in multiple applications on the one high profile project.

11,000m2 External Container Pavement (Independent Real Estate Consortium)

Dramix 4D Combi Slab allowed for significant reduction in slab thickness from Conventional Design, including Client requirement for fully-loaded Container Pavement (no BPA reduction factor applied), the removal of Saw Cuts also attractive for long-term maintenance savings.
