A number of precast products were used in this building including twinwall, lattice flooring and hollowcore.

The distinctive folds and inclines of the superstructure required an accurate 3 dimensional model of the concrete frame. True views of all of the concrete surface planes were created, from which individual production drawings for each precast element were created. A robotic plotting machine then plotted the outline of each unique panel shape onto the steel production beds.

A finite element structural model of the inclined surfaces was created by the in house design team, to assess the reinforcement required in the precast members.

 

Oran Pre-Cast's expertise in the following areas contributed to a successful concrete structure:

  • Drafting and design using 3 dimensional software packages,

  • Bespoke lattice floor and twinwall products,

  • Just in time site delivery,
