SA Water engaged SMEC Engineering to design a 400m long flood channel to cope with a high water flow of 20m/sec. A channel of this size poses numerous detailing and construction issues, however the adoption of the Dramix Combi Slab solution ensured simplification of the traditional steel, removal of water stop joints, allowed for a quicker construction programme and met the required crack width requirement of 0.2mm.

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.
