14-Storey Public Housing Development at Jurong West
For this public housing development project, there was a requirement to precast planks for toilet/kitchen area with 9 openings for piping and other services.
Technical specifications of precast slab: 0.17 MT of reinforcement per set
Installation time using non-prefabricated methods: >8 manhours
Installation time using BRC’s prefabrication solutions: 1.33 manhours
Using traditional methods, it would have taken 4 workers at least 2 hours to cut the mesh and tie the trimmer bars.
By employing prefabrication, we were able to manufacture the same sheet of mesh with the openings in our factory in a much shorter time. Resultantly, the remaining work of laying the mesh and tying the loose bars could be completed by the same number of workers in just 20 minutes.
