Public Housing Development Multi-storey Carpark at Clementi Ave 6
For this multi-storey carpark project, we supplied the fan-shaped mesh and longitudinal bars required for ramp reinforcement.
The mesh was re-detailed as single directional mesh to allow for ease of laying, while the longitudinal bars were re-detailed as 12-metre loose bars to avoid excessive lapping.
Technical specifications of ramp slab mesh: Total weight: 5.6 MT, with each sheet of mesh weighing between 50 to 100 kg
Productivity ratio using non-prefabricated methods: 28 manhour/MT
Productivity ratio using BRC’s prefabrication solutions: 10.7 manhour/MT
The whole ramp slab reinforcement job took 4 workers a total of 15 hours to complete. This amounted to significant time savings of 2 days, as conventional tying would have taken around 40 hours to complete.
