Construction of a new 5 storey storage facility
Total has successfully completed the design and construction of a new 5 storey self storage facility for Abacus Property Group at Robina. The 10,000m2 floor area has 699 individual storage units and will be operated by Storage King.
The ground conditions required 13.5m deep bored piers for the substructure. The superstructure included a slab on ground, concrete columns, suspended concrete slabs, structural steel girts for the external cladding and metal roofing. The Lift shafts and stairwells are protected by blockwork for structural requirements and stability.
The external of the building has different types of metal cladding, louvres and some feature CFC cladding to provide the aesthetic appeal to suit the structure and client needs.
An office is located on the ground floor and is fitted out with a reception, meeting room, staff amenities and an array of display cabinets.
Access and control to multi-storey construction is always a challenge. This project had a unique challenge of being built in close proximity to the main rail line which required pre-construction approval.
The 5th level floor concrete pour required a concrete pump with a 63m boom reach. The Luffing Tower Crane over sail approval had to be managed with the neighbouring properties. All the site challenges were overcome through a high level of safety control, detailed planning and programming.
