Bidfood is a leading provider of food services, delivering to over 38,000 food service operators throughout Australia. This means that the business requires facilities that can stand up to a high number of truck movements every day. The construction company on this new build in South Australia looked to iNFORCE to provide a structurally superior slab for the large quantities of heavy vehicle movements. We were also able to deliver significant cost savings compared to a conventionally reinforced mesh design.VIEW PROJECT
The Ibex developer approached iNFORCE to provide a fit-for-purpose design for this stunning-looking new warehouse and office complex in the fast-growing Tauriko business park in Tauranga.
iNFORCE was asked to review an existing conventionally reinforced floor in another building of theirs where the failed joints and structural cracking had caused significant disruption to their operations through maintenance and equipment damage. iNFORCE provided a floor design that could almost completely eliminate disruptive maintenance. This was achieved by removing all saw cuts in the floor and armouring the control joints with the state-of-the-art Wave joint to create a large clear area for the company’s materials handling equipment.
iNFORCE is involved in this new NIWA development which will become the first of its kind King Fish breeding operation in the Southern Hemisphere.
