Extension of an existing facility

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

We’re constructing an extension to GWF’s existing facility which will house new roll manufacturing machinery.

This project comprised the demolition of an existing structure on the current site, followed by the erection of a pre-cast panel and structural steel frame building. Fit out of the building included a polyurethane cement coved flooring, white rock clad walls, a PIR panel trafficable ceiling as well as a number of different services runs.

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

Challenges were met due to delays in the structural design process, they were overcome through concise co-ordination and program streamlining helping to regain lost time.

INNOVATIONS

  • Using a polyurethane cement flooring in lieu of the specified epoxy, providing the client with both a cost saving as well as a superior product.
  • Reduced time-frames in both white rock and PIR installations through concise programming, giving sub-contractors an uninterrupted run of works.
  • A number of trade gains leading to cost savings for the client due to the nature of the construction management agreement.
