he client brief for this development
was already complete, with all
requirements for an office and
warehouse space determined. Armada
Construction Group was called in to expand on
the facility for future growth, and ensure easy
access for frequent truck loading and unloading.
Security was also an important factor, and
was achieved with full-height security walls and
electric gates. An undercroft carpark was also
incorporated into the design.
Specialised engineering was required when
it came to the 40m span of the warehouse. Due
to the design, which incorporated only one
column and an intricate framework of trusses
to reduce the individual spans, this part of the
project was completed successfully.
The building consisted of concrete panels and
slabs that were cast in place of suspended slabs
that formed the soffit for the undercroft carpark
and showroom on the ground floor.
Lightweight steel walls were used over the
undercroft opening to reduce loads on the beam.
Dado walls created from concrete tilt panels
were utilised along with Gladiator Security
Fencing to ensure that the facility was kept
enclosed and secure.
Concrete driveways give the project the
longevity it requires from the constant usage by
trucks and forklift traffic.
