The addition of Dramix steel fibres offered additional crack control for heavily trafficked roundabouts at the Perth International Airport precinct.

These roundabouts have been in service now for 9 years, take a look next time you’re heading off on an overseas trip.

A Combi Slab (steel fibres + mesh or bar reinforcing) solution was used for the Internal Warehouse Slabs, the External Pavements as well as Rail Track Slab.

Dramix 4D 65/60BG at varying dosages was combined with conventional bar reinforcing for the track slabs and various mesh options for the internal slabs and external pavements.

 

Tomkins Commercial and Industrial Builders recently completed the new Distribution Facility for Miele appliances at Brisbane Airport. Tungsten Structures engineers worked closely with BOSFA and Menard Oceania to design this facility as a Dramix fibre only Slab-on-Piles using a CMC piling system.

Builder: Tomkins Commercial and Industrial Builders

Placed back in 2008 this slab is utilised at the Komatsu facility in Perth. These types of slabs come under enormous stress from the equipment loading on the slabs.

Placed back in 2005 this slab is still in use and standing up to the punishment of a mining slab.
Mining workshop slab was designed for heavy mining machinery and jacking loads.

Placed back in 2008 this slab is utilised at the McMahons facility in Perth. These types of slabs were designed for their heavy machinery maintenance workshops.

Elizabeth Quay is a mixed-use development project in the Perth central business district. Located on the north shore of Perth Water and centred on the landmark Swan Bells, it was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II during her Diamond Jubilee.
BOSFA and Dramix are very proud to have been involved in this iconic project, construction of the SFRC slabs started in 2012 and completed some 12 months later. As you meander around this fantastic precinct, be rest assured you are walking on Dramix SFRC concrete pavements, clad with magnificent locally sourced granite paving. Even the curved steps and seats are all resting on Dramix SFRC.

When constructing large, jointless, restrained warehouse slabs, there are only two options. A conventionally reinforced slab with two layers of heavy mesh, or the much more economical Dramix Combi Slab solution utilising 4D Dramix fibres and a single layer of mesh.

Comsi Slab also proves an excellent option for external yard slabs, providing large joint-free bays that are economical to construct.

Tomkins Commercial and industrial Builders recently completed the new retail store for Total Tools using the tried and tested solution of a Dramix Jointless Slab. McVeigh Consultants had no hesitation in specifying this solution even though it was going to be used for public access, and the quality of the finished floors speak for themselves.

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!
