This 48,000m2 floor area facility will be used to store tobacco leafs, process and final packaging.

Initial design was using 40kg/m3 loose low performing type fibre. With the combined effort with our partner Infratex Environmental Services Philippines Inc – Bekaert®’s proposal was to use a high performance fibre floor solution at a lower dose rate. By using Dramix 3D 80/60BG, the dose rate can be reduced offering significant saving to the main contractor.

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.

45,000m2 of Jointless Internal Warehouse slabs, all reinforced with Dramix steel fibre. The Internal slabs were designed to have no saw-cuts to minimise maintenance under hard wheeled forklifts, and to accommodate up to 12.7 Tonne post loads from the installed racking. The internal pours are some of the largest fibre only pours achieved in Australia spaning 40m x 40m.

Douglas Constructions, along with Malcolm Douglas Consultants, choose Dramix steel fibre again as the best solution for their Walsh Family Transport warehouse project at Berrinba QLD. Stage 1 of the warehouse facility was 5800m2 and was able to be supplied by Neilsens Concrete and placed by ShepCon Contracting in just over a week, helping to achieve the very tight deadline for the project.

Douglas Constructions propose another Dramix steel fibre solution to Dexus Property Group for their new warehouse facility at Larapinta as a faster, cost effective, and overall better solution. The 23,000m2 warehouse was supplied by Holcim Concrete and poured by Bess Concrete to an outstanding quality in a very short timeframe.

Not only did ACFS build 50,000m2 of completely seamless Dramix Combi Slab external pavement, but they also used Dramix for their Internal Warehouse slabs and their Pad Footings at their Port of Brisbane facility.

The External pavements  loads of B-Double semi-trailers and associated handling equipment.

There have been several projects designed and completed in Melbourne for Australand by Anglo Italian Concrete P/L, using the Formula Floors D & C approach. The CABAC facility at Seven Hills, is the first Formula Floors package put forward by Anglo Italian and accepted by Australand in Sydney.

The 8,000 sqm internal slab was designed to carry a 6 tonne post load and had to be a burnish finish providing a hard wearing, very flat floor.

Concrete was supplied by Hanson Construction Materials, at Pendle Hill and the slab area was completed in 7 pours. All Dramix® Steel Fibre Concrete was placed by Laser Screed resulting in very flat tolerances.

As well as the ground slabs there were two composite suspended slabs on King Floor 70 decking incorporating Dramix® high performance RC80/60 BN steel fibres. This allowed for ease of placement and met with OH&S standards on site.
