Prefab Column– 9 Storey Multi-user Industrial Development at Buroh Crescent

Year: 2015

Project Details:This project required BRC to supply a large column measuring 1.75m x 3.2m x 9.5m and weighing a total of 10.8MT. BRC re-detailed the column reinforcement into 2 halves of prefabricated cages to overcome constraints of production, transportation and installation.

Each half of the reinforcement was installed in 15 minutes by 3 workers and they took a further 2 hours to link the 2 pieces together with horizontal lapping bars.

Had the conventional method of erecting the columns been employed, it would have taken 5 workers 3 days to complete the job. Our prefabricated column reinforcement resulted in a time savings of 2.5 days.
