Year of Completion
2014
Location
Sengkang, Singapore

It took just 5 hours for 5 workers to install the 23 sheets of mesh/U mesh required for each of the staircase shelter walls at this mixed development project at Sengkang.

By re-detailing the staircase reinforcement in mesh/U-mesh, manpower and time required for the installation of each shelter wall was considerably reduced.

Technical specifications: Staircase shelter wall of 6m (L) x 3.1m (W); Total weight: 3.5MT

Productivity using non-prefabricated methods: 35 manhour/MT

Productivity using BRC’s prefabrication solutions: 7.2 manhour/MT

Productivity improvement
A fully assembled staircase shelter wall consisting of 23 sheets of mesh.

This was a huge productivity improvement, resulting in time savings of 2 days per floor. Comparatively, the manual process of tying the rebars would have taken 6 workers, 2 days to complete.
