Title: Precast Protects The Diggers
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:A major part of the Lavarack Barracks Redevelopment Stage 2 comprised provision of 992 new single accommodation quarters. The provision of the 992 units was accommodated by the construction of 72 individual three storey buildings, spread over a site approximately two kilometers long. A precast concrete solution was adopted for the construction of the units to satisfy the structural, architectural and site construction requirements. All external precast surfaces were an off form colour controlled concrete finish and the precast floors were honed, requiring that the project was undertaken by a precaster with architectural precast experience. All panels were factory cast, delivered on specialised transport and erected with mobile cranes, reducing site manpower and construction times. A new manufacturing facility was established near the site to reduce transport costs due to the large sizes of the panels.
