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.

For this project, mesh was re-detailed in a single-directional fan shape to facilitate ease of laying.
Having a customised fan shape meant that the mesh could be laid according to the exact curvature of the ramp.

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

Productivity improvement
Longitudinal bars were re-detailed as 12-metre loose bars to avoid excessive lapping.

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.

Ramp slab reinforcements completed.
