INFORMER June 2022 Edition
KEEP PROJECTS ON TRACK – SWAP STEEL BAR AND MESH FOR FIBRE
Steel delays and cost increases are causing many project budgets and timelines to blow out, putting pressure on builders, civil contractors and the engineers and specifiers working on these jobs. Fibre-reinforced concrete is a viable alternative that increases flexural strength and shear resistance, and provides design efficiencies by removing the need for sawn joints and reducing construction joints. Plus, fibre is readily available!
This edition of the iNFORMER showcases several recent projects where we provided our clients with optimised slab designs, utilising the benefits of steel fibre reinforcement.
Take a look at how we assisted Pan Pac Forest Products in Napier with a 10,000m2 warehouse, and read how we designed a strong slab with minimal joints for Golden Bay Fruit.
