ONSITE DURATION 14 weeks

The project consisted of a double level basement car park beneath a 5 storey hospital building. In total almost 12,000m2 of flat slab was constructed in the 14 week timeframe. Each of the 7 levels required a full design due to variations in the loadings, opes and floor recesses. A vibration analysis of the floor slab was carried out in house by Oran Pre-Cast design team.

 

The design included the provision of

  • Transfer slabs / beams at ground floor

  • Significant floor recesses for medical equipment, showers etc…

  • Provision of soft spots in the car park floor for future changes
