McVeigh Consulting again specified a “Seamless” Dramix 4D Combi Slab for the 22,000m2 Container Park to handle the huge loads from the massive forklifts and stacked containers.
Dramix Jointless slabs were used for the 15,000m2 internal warehouse as well.
And on top of that Dramix was used in the Footings throughout the facility too.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Dramix warehouse slab designs offer greater design efficiencies. The Stihl warehouse has now been in operation for around 4years now and is performing very well. Yet another example of how well a Dramix steel fibre reinforced slab does perform.

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.

Tobacco industry remains high in South East Asia, some producers are opening new production facilities or upgrading their production facility. Due to superior performance against cracking and to minimize slab joints. A Dramix solution was chosen to upgrade two production facilities one at British American Tobacco in Malang, East Java and the other at Japan Tobacco International (JTI) in Malang. Both production facilities in Pasuruan utilise the same high performance Dramix solution.

The new 27,000sqm Northline facility in Regency Park, South Australia utilised the tried and tested Dramix fibre only jointless solution for the internal slabs. With the external slabs adopting a Dramix Combi Slab, enabling the removal of all saw cuts and all dowelled joints from the pavement. Having no joints makes for the most efficient design with the additional benefit of long term reduced maintenance cost with the removal of costly jointing systems.
